I used to get that, then i switched from fire404 back to IE, its rather stable and the same as every other browser in terms of browsing experience IMO. This was/is on an ATI 5770 too.

Regularly update all of your drivers, even graphics, it usually fixes every problem when things are kept up to date.

Thnx, but guyz you why I am not updating my driver, becuz tregady happened with my Lanmate last year, he burnt his 9800GT. He actually updated his driver and suddenly fan of his nV went off and sparked! R.I.P 9800GT :'(

Now guyz tell me what was this actually? Though I knew that was happened but still I purchased 560-Ti TFII because I know what nV actually is ;) and everybody here know that if we own nVs so what's the reason behind it :)

But I am afraid because if.....if it happens to me, MY DAD NOT GONNA LEMME BUY ANOTHER CARD AGAIN! :'(

Tell me if this driver is working ok, then I should download it.

Thanks for your support!

I highly doubt that a driver update would cause physical damage to a card...

The latest WHQL driver is 296.10, you should update to this one. WHQL means its certified by Microsoft, for what it's worth...

Just do a clean install of these drivers and see if it fixes your problem.

There was a problem last year with Nvidia drivers that caused the fans to stop working on some 8 and 9 series gpu's. That said, Nvidia caught the problem quickly and fixed it. There haven't been any problems like that since. So go ahead and update those drivers!!!
