Grrrr. A clean windows install last weekend, disabled IE, set Chrome as default browser, did not install any versions of Flash or windows updates, and I get this black screen with the recovered message after a few hours of desktop and web browsing.

Going to try the Physx trick and disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome. This guy from the nvidia forum might be on to something.

I haven't done update to SP1 still... actually I haven't made updates to windows7 64 bit in more than 8 months. Using 296.10 now, the only TDR I had was when using firefox + hardware acceleration, just turn it off under options in firefox, never had more TDR since.
