I will log in and within 5 minutes or maybe more my comp with freeze and a message box pops up with Nvidia open GL driver heading in in the body it say A TDR has been detected and app must be closed. It's error code: 7. I lowered all the graphics to medium and am running an i74820k 3.70 ghz 16 gb ram Have 2 GeForce GTX 760s. After about 8 crashes and having to hard reboot my machine it would not even load up had to mess around for an hour till I got it to reboot in normal mode. It's been a long road to get back on this server.. Cd keys. Getting old account and now this but my desire to relearn the game and make new friends and maybe find some old friends keeps me going. Hope someone maybe have an idea. Thanks friends. Pono

From another forum:
TDR = Timeout Detection and Recovery, something Windows uses on the graphics card, to try detect if it's hanged and failed to send input to the monitor for a while. Windows then attempts to fix it but restarting the graphic card drivers.
Error code 7 = Lost connection signal.
Either the graphic card is overheating / overworked. The game itself has hanged/glitched and stopped sending information to the monitor. Or you have an issue with it's graphic card drivers stability.
What resolution / quality are you attempting to run at? Turn it down slightly (such as the anti aliasing and/or other high graphic processing - Nvidia Hairworks, etc) and retest, does the issue still occur or not?
Are you on Windows Vista?
Does this only happen when running Neverwinter Nights?

NVIDIA driver engineer here... Thanks for this bug report.
We have confirmed the bug. We believe the bug is isolated to Windows 10. The problem occurs when video memory is used at near capacity. To minimize exposure to the bug, reduce the video memory consumption overall... Graphics cards with less video memory will run into near-capacity issues sooner.
NVIDIA is working to resolve the issue (NVIDIA bug # 1711214) and fix it in a future driver update.
I read up and have lowered my video settings .. it only happenes on nwn and it only happens on HG its strange cuz I can play any game that's new on max graphics but have to play an older game on lowest graphics lol. I reinstalled my graphics card drivers with fresh install and with the now almost lowest graphics settings im about to try and log in again. Oh and I am running windows 7
