Nvidia windows kernel mode driver stopped responding

Recenly I bought new laptop with nVidia GeForce graphics card and I had this Kernel Mode Driver problem. Basically your 3d application or game freezes and Windows is blocking drivers from access to graphics card. I should say it was occuring when using 3d software Autodesk Maya, not in game. Since I managed to fix it, I wanted to share it here on my blog. Here is my system config:

LENOVO laptop
windows 8 64bit
GeForce GT 745M with 2GB memory
intel i7
8 GB system memory


Unfortunately no settings changes on nVidia card helped - I had to choose intergated Intel graphics card for Maya. This stabilized the application. With nVidia Settings you can selectively change which card is used for which application.

In case you still cannot resolve your problem, try this nVidia GeForce forum with other tips:
