Unreal Engine 4 causing nVidia Driver to stop working
It has only started happening recently and I'm not sure why, nVidia's drivers were updated around a week ago however this only started I'd say around 4-5 days ago. Nothing on my system has changed since it has started happening everything has stayed the same so I'm not sure what is causing it. When it happens it causes my GPU to speed up rapidly also (this I think is happening as I have a driver that increases the fan speed depending on the heat of the GPU Core).
It appears to happen most of the time when I am building lighting. (Yes, I'm using importance volumes and I'm only building light at preview standard).
I know it isn't a problem with the card it's self as it runs other high performance games on max settings such as BF4 with ease and with no crashing.
My hardware is not under the minimum requirements either:
Ok, now I dunno... I updated NVIDIA driver yesterday, and have not had any crashes. Recorded about 5 minutes of gameplay in full screen ( 1920 x 1080 ) , with max scalability settings ... yay!!!

I've GTX 770 OC and it's screaming while dealing with UE4. it's ok, it never crashed before.
but beware....driver stop working may happened bec. Overheat , try to use HWiNFO64.exe to check the temp of your GPU to be clear it's not a heat issue... it should be around "60-70C"
finally , windows 7 just have been updated yesterday , it may the new windows update need to check your GPU driver to latest version .
yesterday my machine crashed "BOSD" while building the light , I updated my bios to be sure everything run smoothly , and now everything runs clear.
so my advice is: 1-check your GPU Driver. 2-update your motherboard Bios.
bec. I think that this issue is a "Driver software/hardware related" not related to UE4 editor .
just check those 2 solution and then confirm what you get .
best of luck :))

Well, after starting to use UE4.3, I am having this problem as well. :( But for me it happens randomly. I rolled back my driver, and it is still happening.
My graphic card is a GTX 460M.
