Hi all,

I have tried all I can think of including reformatting my hard drive and installing Windows, drivers, etc  with freshly downloaded copies but I keep getting this error message in the event logs:

Event ID - 4101 - Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

But LOTRO crashes, this can happen after only a couple of minutes or after an hour or so.  I can only think there is a problem with my graphics card.

Anyone have any suggestions of what to try next other than getting a new card, as I'm at a lose?


CPU: Intel i7-3770

RAM: 16Gb

Hope that video fixes things for you Mark, as explained in your other topic I find the LOTRO client very unstable at the moment as it's crashing randomly for me.

Do you experience these issues in other games as well?

Thank you for posting the link, I had not seen that. I have gone into MSI Afterburner and reduced the Core Clock by 100 and LOTRO has been stable for over an hour. Hopefully this has resolved the issue.

Not sure why it started in the last few weeks though PC has not changed other than drivers for over 2 years.

Again thank you.
