This particular issue with nVidia graphics cards has been going on for a long time and is not limited to Second Life.  Although a lot of people have tried to fix the problem, I have not found any one fix that works for everyone.  The problem seems to be caused by the graphics driver timing-out--you may want to try turning-off CUDA in the nVidia driver settings Control Panel (some people have had success with this and it is very easy to try--if it doesn't help, you are not out much time or effort).  The problem seems worst with the newest nVidia cards, from what I can find, but can occur on almost any nVidia card.

I know this isn't a definitive answer but take some comfort in knowing that you are far from alone.

I've actually found a fix for this after alot of digging around.

Two things you can do


1) use a alot older Nvidia driver 260's seem to work for firestorm and other newer viewers

2) Disable basic shaders ( this works the best and easiest thing to do )

Also you can do a registery edit and set the delay to zero in one spot but that isnt' recommended if you don't know what your doing right so best to disable basic shaders
