Hi there,

I just started X-plane 10 again and after 20 minutes of doing pre-flight checks, I got this following error:

"Unable to recover from Kernel exception. The application must close. Error code 3 (subcode error 2) Would you like to visit Nvidia support for more info?"

My graphics driver for my GTX 970 4 gb VRAM is 364.51, the latest driver. I assume this is a driver bug because I was experiencing this issue with the "350 series of drivers". When I tried 347.88 a while ago, the problem seemed to have been solved.

Any of you guys experiencing these errors? What driver do you recommend?

After installing 364.51 drivers I have no problem with X-Plane 10. Try to reinstall drivers again but as far as I can see it is a common Nvidia problem. The most common reason is overclocked hardware.

Yeah my card is overclocked

i just upgraded my OS to Windows 10 so and installed 355.98 as my driver. I will check today to see if my issue is resolved
