Q: display driver nvidia windows kernel .....

Hello everyone
I recently installed windows 7 ultimate and i have some serious issues with it.
at first when i installed it, and it booted for the first time into windows i got the BSOD everytime, only way i got passed it was to boot up with driver certification disabled. i was finally able to boot into windows 7.
First thing i noticed was that everything responded very slow, if i clicked the start button it took up to 5 seconds for it to respond. still everything acts very slow.
so after a while i got the error "display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver 195.39 stopped responding and has recovered succesfully"
so my screen starts to flicker black, and i get the BSOD once in a while.
I can't run the performance test because my system freezes up.
i tried upgrading/downgrading nvidia drivers, installed direct x disable aero and so on
ive done alot of research on the web but i can't find any solutions to it.

My system :

gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 F3
amd dual core 6000+
4gb ram
geforce 9800x2
hdd 320gb

thanks in advance

"display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 332.21 stopped responding and has recovered"

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

I am using a Dell XPS 8300 computer with the following specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
64 Bit OS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Dell has attempted to help me with this problem. Prior to having this error pop up on my screen the computer would just have a blank screen at start up after the dell logo then the windows logo appeared. They had me run the computer in safe mode with networking and they have uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled them, they ran CCleaner and fixed all registry errors/cleaned out temporary files, they installed and ran Windows Security Essentials and got rid of any malware. Finally, they decided to send me a new graphics card. They had a technician come install the new card and run a diagnostic test and update all drivers. Everything seemed to be fine but when I opened a game on the system that uses the more intense graphics, the screen went blank again. I have not played any games since but while browsing the internet at random times, I get the error message from the title of this post. The screen will go blank for a few seconds then reappear with that message. I have tried to do some research and have found that the error is probably something called TDR. However, I am not an expert and I am clueless. Please l... Read more

I was working with an audio recording software just now when I faced this error (in the subject line). The screen blacked for 10 seconds or so and then came back.

Also, I faced similar errors when I was using Power Point and a screen recorder software but the error was a bit different nvlkdm has stopped working. Also, I had just installed IE 9 beta (hardware acceleration), opened the first site and the system crashed and I had to do a hard reboot and unistall IE 9 to save my life from such errors again. The errors are just random. The nVidia drivers are downloaded the official nVidia and are the latest available for my DELL XPS M1530 with 8600M GT. (OS Win 7 Ultimate 32bit)

I also got two BSOD's at different time with a message saying:
"Unable to reset the display. A problem occured with the display driver driver"
I noted this error code on the blue screen
000000x16 nvlddmkm.sys
Dumping physical memory etc. etc.

There are no Minidumps being formed in Windows/Minidump (I just enabled them now), so I wasn't able to post any of them :-|
All temperatures normal, RAM test with Windows Memory Diagnostic/memtest/DELL Diagnostics pass, no overclocking.
However, I perfomed the stability test with Furmark for my grpahics acrd and the display started flickering with dots. Earlier when I installed the driver and had the performed the stability, it had ran absolutely fine for more than 20 min.

I am getting this error for a long time now but it only happens with more newer games like : GTA V, heroes and generals and now also with Fallout 4.
I play alot of Counter strike and I have never had this error while playing this.
This is the error I am talking about. NOTE that this is not the same driver I use.

After a certain time my screen goes black, it closes the game I'm playing and its showing the error shown above.

Things I have tried:
Re-installing windows
Updating my graphic drivers
Installing different graphic drivers(with clean install)
Updating my BIOS
Changing settings in the Nvidia configuration window.
Checking the temperature and it does not go above 60C

I've had contact with Nvidia and tried some of the above and now they tell me I should bring my pc to a local shop to get it checked out. But first I want to ask you guys from the forum if any of you might know any solution to try out before I do that.

Windows 7 x64
Intel core i5-4570 2100 1150 BOX
Coolermaster B600 600w ATX23
Seagate 1TB st1000DM003 7200 SA3
Ram is ripjaw 4x 2GB DDR3

Since I am not making this post at home I cannot make sure what the exact RAM memory is I use because I didnt buy it online.

I am also not able to upload a DXDiag report right now but I will do that when as soon as I get home.

I hope this would be enough information for now and I am looking forward for all your replies!

Hello hello.

I getting on the brinck of crying here. ."

I have a brand new build computer and had the Windows RC installed when i started to get BSOD / nvlddmkm.sys

I have sense installed a genuine Win7 after a lovely reminder from Microsoft.
With the new install i don't get a BSOD, but i do get the "Display Driver Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version (what ever version of Nvidia driver u have installed) stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

It only happens in games, and i have tried a lot of stuff to get it to work so i can have fun with the new gear. But just can't get a solution. Anyone here who has a experience with this problem and know possible solutions?

I have monitored the TEMP of the GPU but it does not matter if the temp is 55 or 70 c when it crashes.

What I've tried:

Since a week i got a new laptop from MSI (model GS70). I already installed some programs like AutoCAD, Office and so on for college. But i also installed a few games like Diablo 3 and Hearthstone.

But for some reason my laptop keep crashing when i'm trying to play hearthstone which is in my opinion not a heavy game to run. So when i try to launch i often notice that the noice is verry weird, the display is flashing and i got a pop-u that says: "Nvidia Kernel Mode Driver has stopped responding and has recovered". Mostly i have to end the task in the task manager. But later today when i tried to launch it my laptop just froze up and moments later i got a BSOD 'dpc watchdog violation' caused by driver NtosKrnl.exe. However the akward thing is that i can run diablo 3 with no problems what so ever. I have not been able to test other games yet, but so far it only happens with Hearthstone.

My Nvidia drivers are up-to-date (355.82). So i'm not sure what the problem here is.

EDIT: Since i found it very strange it only happend in Hearthstone, i also installed Heroes of the storm. At first it worked fine, but once i got in the load screen, the noice was choppy, screen flashes and moments later i got a BSOD.

I pre-ordered Fallout 4, probably my most anticipated release yet, and I was devastated when this crash started happening. Just like my problem in Mortal Kombat X the game is utterly unplayable. This is one of the most frustrating things I have ever encountered
with a computer. Both of these releases I have specifically purchased because they are among my favorite game series and I can't play them at all.

I have a .dmp file, a dxdiag, an msinfo32 and a GPU-Z log. I can tell you right now that this is not a problem with drivers, BIOS updates, GPU temps or power consumption (at least from what MSI Afterburner graphs say) or the in-game graphics being to high.
I've done just about everything that is within my knowledge and competency. I'll take as many ideas as I can.

I did upgrade to Windows 10 during the time when Mortal Kombat X was experiencing this crash. I thought it would fix it but the problem remained despite the complete reformatting of my hard drive.

Good evening all. I am hoping to find some help for my question below. I have searched the forums here for similar issues but nothing I have tried thus far has worked.

I get a black screen for about 5 seconds and then the screen recovers. Sometimes it happens 3-4 times a game (League of Legends, Skyrim) and sometimes not at all. During that time, if I alt tab, I can see this message once the screen recovers, "nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 301.42 stopped responding and has recovered."

I have a Geforce GTX 260 with Nvidia 301.42 drivers and Windows 7 64bit (full specs are in my details). My motherboard is running updated drivers. I have tried both the 294 and 285 drivers and still have the issue with both. My GPU temp is 64C which doesn't seem to be too hot (but maybe?)

So far, I've read through a lot of forum posts and tried numerous different things, including; low video settings, disabling all visual upgrades from Windows 7, selecting the video card in 3D settings in Nvidia control panel, and numerous other things.

Please someone help!

Hello and welcome to the forums Bruntz!

64 C at load is normal for that graphics card.

Is your GTX 260 overclocked? Set it to default clocks and try again.

I received this error (see subject line or below) this evening while using Adobe Photoshop CS3 on my Windows 7 (64-bit) system.

Error occurred while attempting to use the slice tool in Photoshop. The screen froze momentarily (1-2 seconds), the went black (1-2 seconds) and then came back to "normal" but with the error message in the bottom right corner of screen. If occurred 3-4 times within 2 minutes. I rebooted Photoshop and it has not occurred since, but I'm extremely worried since my computer is my livelihood and I cannot afford to be without it should it go down on me unexpectedly.

I've got some minor problems but still I find them quite annoying.
When I'm running Win 7 my display is flickering. It just looks like bad reception on a TV station. When it gets too bad the display turns blak and after a second everything is fine and it starts all over again.

After a while Windows states that there is a problem with the Nvidia windows kernel mode driver, version 186.81 and that it has been restored. (This info is given after the screen turns black).

I think that there is a connection between those two problems but I don't know how to solve it.

I've got a nVidia Geforce 9650m GT grafics card and after I installed win 7 downloaded and installed the driver.

It is even worse when aero is running.
In Vista everything was fine.

That didn't work. I uninstalled it and removed the registries and what not, that didn't work. So I'm now on a newly formatted Laptop and opening the Default images the Windows provides gives me these errors. Before I formatted I was getting these Errors - "Nvidia Display Driver Has Stopped Responding and Successfully Recovered".

I have a big problem with my samsung rv720-s02nl notebook.
Since I have reinstalled windows 7 I was getting a lot of errors.
When clean install and all the drivers were updated I got random screen freezes. I had to press the power button until the system was powered down.
The message said Nvidia driver stopped responding and has recovered(dutch).
I tried to use the old drivers (straight from the samsung support site) but they also didn't help.

I tried this "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista but that didn't stop the problem, but it resolved the bsods(screen freezes) but i still get error messages about the nvidia driver has stoped working and didn't respond. And still sometimes the computer freezes.

Hopefully you can help me with this.
Sorry for my English, i'm Dutch.

I installed Blue screen viewer and it said the problems were caused by dxgkrnl.sys driver. I searched on google but I found no valuable solutions.

Hello whoever reads this call for help.
Since some time I have two reoccuring errors that just wont stop annoying me.
1. From time to time the screens turns black and I get the message that the Nvidia Kernel mode driver 344.65 crashed and was restarted. 
This problem occured first. It happens sometimes when I am playing games, but not everytime. Sometimes it even crashes when I am just browsing the internet (less then 5 tabs) and run (as far as I know) no other programs.
Some users seem to have that problem, but the forums of Nvidia seem to remain without attention from the developers site.
2. Nvidias NvOAWrapperCache.exe is apparently not compatible with the 64 bit version of Windows and can't start/ run (so the error message).
This keeps popping up whenever I do something. If I don't close the error text, apparently nothing happens. 
I was not able to find a lot about this problem, but finally I found a thread on your forum where fireman4it apparently solved a similar problem. Unfortunatly I was not able to follow his way to solve the problem because FRST64 obviously gave me a different log. But since I am not sure, if this is the right thing for me to do in the first place, I want to ask if someone here could please find the time to try to help me and tell me what I could do.

Hello everyone! I tried posting this in the graphics card forum, but haven't had any responses so I thought I would try here seeing as how it may be a driver issue.
I've been having an issue with my GPU recently, and I'm at an absolute stand still as to what the issue could be. I'm using a custom build, and here are some of the specs:

Power Supply - Corsair 650TX V2
CPU - Intel i7-3770K
GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 670
Motherboard - ASUS P8Z77-V
RAM - 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600

Now here is my issue.
Whenever I try to launch certain programs and games such as BF 3/4, Dead Space 3, Photoshop CS6, and Sony Vegas 12, they will attempt to start, freeze, and then my display on both monitors will go black for two seconds and return to normal. I'm then greeted by a friendly little message in the corner that says:
"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version (whatever driver version I have at the time) stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

This is frustrating not being able to use these programs which I used to use on a daily basis, and play many many games. I posted about it several times on the NVIDIA forums, and have been unable to find an answer to my problem. But after doing a little (LOT) of research, I came to the conclusion that it could be one of two things.
1) It has something to do with "graphics hardware acceleration"
2) My GPU isn't getting enough power.

Finally, after doing ... Read more

Hi! Every time I start a game that uses the Nvidia 940m graphics card in my Yoga 700 with Windows 10, the 'Nvidia Windows kernel mode driver' crashes after a while. The fan then is at maximum and the Yoga shuts down shortly thereafter. I already installed the Intel and Nvidia graphic drivers from the Lenovo support website and tried some tricks found on the web (card always at maximum power etc.), but nothing really helps. The solution center doesn't find any problems with the nvidia card. Support says, the problem is known and they are hoping for Windows Redstone and a better nvidia driver... Anyone else here has this problem? And found a solution??Could it help to update the chipset driver and all the other drivers from the support website too? Thanx in advance,DerHuette

( Realized I had posted in the wrong section. I apologize. :\ )

Hey, all. Before you go on and give me the normal solutions to this issue, such as hardware monitoring software, overclocking and setting the NVIDIA Driver to High-Performance, I wish to explain my scenario, and that a lot of these solutions did not work out yet. I think this is more of a dying GPU problem.

About a few months ago, I updated the drivers for my NVIDIA 555m following a few low-FPS issues ( About 30 - 20 FPS in recent games ), thinking that a new driver would help fix the hiccups in gameplay ( I have 6 GBs of RAM, an Intel i5 quad-core processor, and a 64-bit Windows 7 ). Needless to say, this fixed the FPS on my games, at least to a manageable speed, so I was happy with the move.

However, after a few days with this update, I started to notice problems. On occasion, the NVIDIA kernel mode driver would stop working, and cause Windows 7 to reset the graphics card driver. At first, I didn't pay attention to it, since it only happened once or twice per day, and nothing else occurred afterwards. However, that was my mistake - By not investigating the issue further, the problem only grew. Soon, the issues started happening frequently, and led to BSODs where Nvlddmkm.sys was the fault, with the computer saying the attempt to restart the service ultimately failed.

I have since been using the internal Intel HD Graphics, which works well on most of my games with max settings, except for games like ... Read more

PLEASE HELP! After upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Nvidia GEforce GT 750M Display Driver causes laptop to fail to startup.
I am running:

Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586
System Model Inspiron 7737
System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 1801 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. A06, 27/11/2013

Since upgrading to Windows 10 I have to start up the laptop in safe mode, uninstall the Nvidia card. Then I do a normal restart, at which point windows update automatically re-installs the Nvidia card.
So before I shut down after working each day, I have to remember to uninstall the Nvidia card again, so that the laptop will restart the next time I need it.
There are a few works-arounds i have discovered, but none work for my laptop.

Turning the windows update to a 'metered connection' so that it does not automatically download updates does not work as I am in a rural area with poor internet connection and so cannot work via WIFI.
Downloading the Windows 10 'hide updates' tool does not work as it cannot find any problems with the laptop - even though there is one!

Is there anything you can recommend that would stop my laptop from automatically downloading the Nvidia drivers???? It always downloads an old version of the driver back from 2015 and not the latest one that is availble from March 2106.
Or is there away of telling windows update to download the latest driver and not the old one????

Hi, my problem is that when i play games like Call of Duty and WoW my pc sucks for a bit and comes to normal. It shows "Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding...." but in games such as League of Legends it runs normal. I ve changed the Hard Drive and CPU fan and 4 giga ram recently. The Processor : Intel 2 Duo E4600 2.40ghz. So what can i do..?

A:PC black screen and back (lockup). Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped

Bottleneck is probably combo of your CPU, [what video?] and motherboard chipset. [southbridge/northbridge which effects it all]

I'd try upgrading the chipset drivers and BIOS of your motherboard, found on your motherboard's web site, FIRST.

That CPU is a bit low for gaming, LoL is probably well optimized code and lower requirements as a result.

Not knowing all your hardware.... Fill in the specs, you can run msinfo32.exe from Start | search box and get the info there. Video card will be listed under Components | Display.

Guessing without it, that you could use a video card and CPU upgrade, that CPU is circa 4Q/'07 so it has seen better days, whole system replacement is probably in order, to catch up to 2013 gaming.

Looking on newegg just for an idea, this is the only LGA775 slot CPU (same slot type as a E4600) even available, and it's a refurb: (plus no guarantee your motherboard supports it, without looking it up.)

If your motherboard even has a PCI Express x16 slot, what version is it, 1.0/1.1/2.0? will likely limit a video card choice, also, let alone the PSU in it.

Alright, I have an Alienware M17X R1. I installed the new 260.99 Display driver and periodically get a black screen, sometimes "recovering", usually just sitting there until I do a hard restart (which I dont like doing). After browsing the Drivers FAQs I noticed "Notebooks supporting Hybrid Power technology with Intel chipsets are not supported by this release." I have an nVidia 9400M onboard with two GTX280M's in SLI. I'm starting to think I might have goofed here and installed a Driver that doesn't support my hardware config. If anyone can help me clear this up I'd be grateful. I have a feeling I'm having a dumb moment lol. Anyways, I am going to install the most recent driver that supports the Hybrid Power (186.03) and see if that solves my problem. I'll be updating this post if it does, Maybe my brain fart can help someone else out

I've been having a strange problem in which when I run a game (any game) i start to get graphical glitches (flashing textures, coloured dots appearing randomly etc). These build up and eventually the game freezes, the sound loops and if i wait even longer the computer restarts itself. It says on the next startup that the problem was something to do with the nvidia display driver.

However, I've tried installing older drivers, newer drivers (using driver cleaner etc aswell) but there has been no change. I know that when i reformat windows the problem goes away for a while but comes back.

here is the small error message i get on startup:

This has been happening for the past month or so, but theres a lot of things wacky with this computer. I just ran combo fix, malware bytes, adw cleaner, and scanned with avast which showed up a lot of files that needed to be deleted, so this computer is a mess in general (its my friends). Sometimes it blue screens, but it hasnt since I started attempting to clean it out.

So I guess Im asking: What else should I run to get this computer clean? Is there anyway to address the graphics problem directly or should I just continuing cleaning and if so how? Thanks! (Ive already updated the graphics driver)

There's lots of work going on to convince us that we need software to trawl our hardware and install the latest version of all drivers. If you have the latest computer with a state of the art graphics card and need to play newly released games at a higher resolution than your friends it's important. That's why nVidia are constantly tweaking the graphics drivers. For anyone with a graphics card that's getting on, like the GT240, it's not so important. I suggest you try a few earlier nVidia drivers for your card. If they don't work either then you need to revisit the problem.

Hi there! I would like to seek some advise on a problem I am encountering with my display driver. Intermittently, the display driver will suddenly have an error and will cause the display settings to change to the lowest res 640 x 480. And sometimes will cause the PC to hang. In both case, the PC will need to be rebooted. I can't see any pattern as it does not happen regularly and not always on the same application that I am using. My PC is abt 2+ yrs old and this only started happening a couple of months ago. I tried to re-install the display driver (default installed by Windows XP) and still happens. Also tried to use the latest driver for my graphics card from NVIDIA website but the problem still happens.

This is the error message:
"The nv4-disp display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality."

Here is my 2+yr old PC specs:
Acer Pentium 4, 2.4ghz, 768MB ram
XP home, SP2
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX-440 graphics card, 64MB (set to 32 bit, 1024 x 768)
LCD monitor

From Windows website, this card is in the windows hardware compatibility list, so i think it should not be a problem. Is there anything else I need to check? Or could it be that my graphics card is already spoiled? But i also did the graphics card tests (3d), i think from the nvidia software, and all have passed the test.

Pls advise. Thanks a lot!

I have an older machine.. a GForce 4 4400 TI graphics card, 512 MB RAM, a 2,2 GHz processor and an nForce motherboard

Recently i wanted to test out a game and it wouldn't start properly and i decided maybe it is time to update my video driver so i downloaded the newest driver from NVidia.

Installed it but then when starting the game i get to the main screen and the whole picture is chopped up resembling triangles.

I then did a clean reinstall of Windows XP (Servicepack 2) and the problem still remained.

I tried older driver like the 77.xx and even one 66.xx i still had but the problem still persisted.

DXdiag showed a problem using DirectDraw in the first step when displaying the black/white rectangles.. they too were chopped up when part of them were displayed in triangles but that mysteriously solved itself after a time yet my display problem remained when starting up any game, i.e. when the special features that games demand (DirectDraw for example) are needed.

Anyone have an idea what that may be or have i even shot my card by installing the newest driver?

Greetings everyone, I just updated my display drivers to the latest version, now my resolution is not what it used to be.

Previously, I had my resolution set to 1152 x 864 without any problems. After the update, the same resolution won't fit my screen, it's in the "middle' and not in "full screen".

Is there any fix for this? I need my resolution to be what it used to be, this one is too big and the text is too small. Everything is out of proportion. Gives me headache.

I can revert to the previous version, but I'd prefer having latest updates.

If you need additional information, please ask, thanks.

Are you using a CRT or LCD? If you are using an LCD than your LCD native resolution might be different and probably higher than 1152 x 864 and as you've upgraded your driver over the previous one so it has transfered your settings to the new one though newer drivers from NVidia has changed the size of resolutions in order to fit best on most displays with best possible clearity on each resolution. Kindly let us know what Brand of display you have and what is the highest resolution it has?

My game (this happens across all games after testing) had crashed and I get some strange things happening like everything being black. Essentially, a manual reboot is required for anything to be functional. The initial mention of a 'driver' lead me to think it was a driver issue.

Hello, I need help with understanding the exact problem with my desktop that I thought I had fixed. My 0x117 crashes never recovered, leading to the 'no-display' situation where I had to do a hard shutdown, sometimes 0x116 occurred instead but I see no 'blue screens' before rebooting.

When I thought I have solved a major problem in booting to windows with a nVidia driver installed by installing a new pair of Gskill 2x 8GB module ram, after a month or so I crashed while watching youtube videos (and loading a game), and thereafter my crashes begin a few minutes after logging into Windows, while playing a game or even checking my email on Firefox.

Crashes will only happen when a nVidia driver is installed, I had brought my 560 GTX to the servicing center to check for any issues quite some time ago but there isn't any problems with it. I even reinstalled OS suspecting my hard shutdowns had corrupted my OS somehow, but the crashes still occurred in a few minutes after logging into Windows.

My VISTA based hp notebook uses the 6150 Ge force chip set or so the hp system info states.

I have 2 odd problems......
I use a 2 montor set-up with a a 24" screen as my 2nd screen. The system always boots up fine. I can run email on the notebook and web stuff on the large screen.

1. If the system goes into sleep mode or similar, about 50 % of the time, when it wakes up, the visible portion of the mouse pointer is invisible on one of the screens. It happens on the 2nd screen the most, but, randomly will leave no visible mouse on the notebook. The mouse is still active and can do its normal functions. The only way to bring the mouse back is a full restart.

2. Again, usually when coming out of sleep mode, the larger 2nd monitor could be dark or lit up, but, will not show any visible web pages or similar.....just dead. I can usually do a work around to bring it back alive using the "NVIDIA Contol Panel". I activate it to use only a "single" screen and let it reset. Then, activate the "dual" screen and let it reset and the 2nd screen is alive again.

I have gone to the NVIDIA driver support page and when I get to driver update, I get a note that I should go to hp for any driver updates. I visit hp and they say I have the latest update....!!! Very frustrating.

Can anyone help me solve these problems...??? My guess it that it is a NVIDIA bug problem....
Many thanks,

Hello, I recently updated to windows 10 and since have been having problems with my Nvidia graphics drivers crashing when I try to put anything in full screen mode on my second monitor. The computer would crash and eventually give me an error that graphics driver had crashed and recovered or that only the Microsoft basics driver is now being used. If I try to put anything in full screen on my primary monitor, the monitor goes black until I exit fullscreen.

I have read through multiple similar posts about this problem for others who seem to have found solutions. I tried to follow all of these different solutions but the problem persists.

What I've done:

I installed Display Driver Uninstallerdid a safe mode clean install restarteddownloaded the newest Nvidia driver updater (364.51-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql)installed a custom install with a clean install (currently have driver version 364.51 for my GeForce GTX 660)told windows not to auto updatetold Nvidia not to auto update.

I am thinking that perhaps I need a legacy driver...? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Try this:

2. Download but don't install the latest drivers for your video card. Save it to your desktop.

3. Uninstall your Nvidia drivers.

4. Reboot your system into Safe Mode and use Driver Cleaner Pro. if it doesn't find anything Nvidia that is quite okay.

5. Reboot your sytem into normal mode and install the latest drivers from Nvidia.

* Let us know of the results.

I recently downloaded the newest drivers for my graphics card since I hadn't checked in some months, and ever since I've been having a few problems. I noticed after I installed the drivers (93.71) the screen was flickering. I checked the refresh rate, and the flickering wouldn't go away untill the refresh rate was set at the highest (120 hz) (I'm only running it at 800 x 600). Every once in a while I have problems playing movies that use windows media player or web browser windows media player plugins. The colors are sometimes inverted, or simply all black with only audio. Sometimes though after fiddling with the nVidia control panel the video starts working normally again.

I also noticed, when I try to play certain games, in this case America's Army 2.81, I get the same screen shaking/flickering again.

I've had problems with the display before after updating drivers, but it usually only involves a little tweaking. Is there something I should check/change now after updating to the version 93.71 drivers, or should I just rollback to the previous ones shince everything worked fine then?

So I just finished my build. I'm on Windows 10 64 bit. Specs are:

* Intel Core i5 4690k @3.5ghz

* Silverstone RVZ02 Case

* Cryorig C7 CPU cooler

* Crucial Ballistix 16gb 2 x 8b Ram

* bombass mitx Asrock Motherboard

* Western Digital Caviar Black 1tb

* Gigabyte GTX 660 2gb

* Corsair ATX 750w PSU

So what's going on is that I'm getting Windows notifications reading "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" every so often where things on the screen go black, while in games this occurs as well.
I've tried:
* boosting the fan speed

* messing with power consumption on my gpu

* Uninstalling and reinstalling Nvidia drivers

* Clean installing the drivers

* Manually installing the drivers in Device Manager

* Uninstalling remnants of AMD drivers from my cpu before I upgraded Friday afternoon

Nothing is really getting me anywhere. To note, these specs are an upgrade. My previous build I was running this gpu with this psu just fine. I'm not sure if it's because I'm using a Riser card in my case to connect my gpu to the motherboard, and I"m not sure how and what to do to stop this issue.

A:nVidia - Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

IMO...any known driver issues relatint to video, audio, etc...are best resolved by uninstalling the current driver for said function....and then installing the same driver anew or installing an updated driver for said function.
If the system is an OEM (HP, Dell, etc.), the source for driver downloads would be the OEM's website support page for that system.
If non-OEM, the source for drivers would be either the motherboard driver CD or the website of the component manufacturer.
If a driver uninstall/reinstall doesn't solve it...I'd consider the possibllity of failing hardware.

Several months ago I installed Vista Ultimate x64 as a 2nd OS (with XP Pro kept as the previous OS) in a dual boot system. There have been major problems with the display driver of the Vista OS from day-1 of the installation. I initially thought that improved nVidia x64 drivers would solve the problem when they were released but none have and I've tried them all, including the Betas. I'm currently running nVidia Forceware Release 160, v160.02 June 5, 2007.

The display driver issue manifests itself in many ways. For example, I cannot play any video (DVD discs or avi files). It either won't play at all or is extremely jumpy. I've tried many different software players and none work. It's not a codec issue either. If I disable the nVidia display driver, the video will play normally. Another example, Outlook doesn't refresh the screen properly but, again, if I disable the nVidia driver, Outlook works OK. The same for some Photoshop CS3 problems; they disappear if I disable the nVidia driver.

The Windows Experience Index will not calculate at all with the FX4400 driver enabled. It reports an error and will not run. It reports an error to the effect that some hardware or device driver is not responding. If I disable the nVidia driver and run the Windows Experience Index, I get 5.2 and above for CPU, Memory and RAM. I get 1.0 for the graphics (to be expected I guess without the nVidia driver) but at least this shows the other components are OK.

I continually get the following error: Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered. Display Driver Nvisdia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version 295.51 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
I have discussed the issue with driver download with Nvidia Tech support, they said the newer 296 driver had issues and had me load the 295 beta version. (I received the same error on the 296 version). I do not get the message as often, but it still comes up while plaing games, liek WoW or CIV V.
I also have a message on my WIN 7 saying there is issues with my Nvidia Grpahics driver but when I go to the link it provides it states: "Your computer was unable to download the solution at this time. Check to make sure your computer is connected to the Internet, and then try to download the solution again later."

I had issues before installing WIN 7 Professional, but the issue normally caused me to have to start the computer. But that was maybe once or twice month. This error is constant and makes playing the games extremely frustrating as the graphics are constantly going out of sync or restarting after going to a blank screen. Sometimes I can alt tab out and back and it correctes itself.

2) When you changed the driver to the version Nvidia advised, what process did you use to install the new driver? Did you just install the driver over the existing one, or did you remove the other driver first?

Hey i had the exact same problem until i found the solution i dont know whats the deal with all the people trying to overcomlicate things. If you updated your nvidia card and get a blank screen the problem is most likely the same as mine because the new drivers put the default screen to the tv so just connect your card to the tv and put the default to your normal screen.

This is a problem that I have had since yesterday, all the programs that are mentioned above and those that I may not be aware of are corrupting itself. What I mean is that firefox can't be opened, and deleted via control panel...same goes for AVG. I get something like "application.ini" or something like that not working/missing the first time I tried opening firefox, all other atttempts just says firefox was missing. Whenever I restart my pc, an error message pops up that says an nvidia file was missing. Whenever I try playing any games, it says a part of directx is missing. The directx parts missing is random depending on the games played, OpenAL21.dll, d3dx9_32.dll, d3dx9_27.dll etc. Now I have tried removing/reinstalling all the ablove mentioned programs properly, and everything would work. But that only lasts for 30minutes or so, after that everything if back to being corrupted again. I have a few virus scans with no results, and my harddrive seems to be somewhat active even when cpu usage is only 4%. Please help! Since this is kind of long, I have attached the hijack log in the next post.

here is my hijackthis log:

Remove your Nvidia drivers using driver sweeper: Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
Then reinstall the current Nvidia drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL

I've been for days already trying to update my video driver.
I have an Acer Aspire 5745PG with a "NVIDIA GeForce 310M" board, and I was trying to run Sony Vegas video editor with Boris Continunn plugins. It happened that some of the plugins, like BCC Text Extrude wouldn't work, showing the message "Insufficient depth resolution to run Blue". I then read somewhere that updating the display driver would do the trick. That was when my nightmares started, I lost already good 3 nights trying to sort this out, without success

The display driver that was before (and that I current have after restoring) was the version

First thing I tried was downloading the driver directly from Acer, which was shown as the latest version from Acer website:

Running it would say "Diver Package Failure - Setup failed to read the required Display Driver to be used with this package"

I then tried directly the NVIDIA own driver, which the latest was version 296.10:
That gave me similar error message :/

So after some researching I found out that some people had the same issue and they had to change the configuration file to allow the installer to recognize this NVIDIA board:

That topic said to look for the "Device Instance Id" p... Read more

A:Can't upgrade NVIDIA GeForce 310M display driver on Acer Aspire 5745PG

This isn't an uncommon problem with laptop graphics, some OEM's choose to not allow the generic nVidia drivers to be compatible. Not sure why the Acer driver fails though.

Try the modded drivers found here:
You need both the driver and the modded INF, and be sure to read the instructions:

P.S. Welcome to Acer products; sales first, customer satisfaction.....well sales first.

HP Touchscreen IQ 506 with Win 7 (SP1), recently recovered (since restore points had been lost).
NVIDIA 9300M GS Display Driver version
Recovery was to Vista, and used upgrade disc to Win7.
Since recovery, I have been experiencing sporadic black-outs, with the message "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered." This has been the case before, as well as after, upgrading to the present driver version.
Display has always returned, but still a nuisance to have activity interrupted.
Never experienced this prior to recovery, and I have not installed any software which was not installed prior to recovery.
The posts on other forums for this problem, for the most part, refer to use during playing action games. The only games I play are card games, and it isn't necessarily during a game when this occurs. I can be reading email or viewing a site on Firefox.
Any additional info needed?
Thanks, in advance --

This is a complete long shoot not sure if anyone will know about this or not.

I have a Datamax Printer E4203. I currently have to use the Datamax PassThrough driver to print from the software I use.

However, you can't install the PassThrough on windows 7 due to the following error:

Windows can't install the Datamax PassThrough kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with this version of windows you are running, contact the manufacturer.

I've spoken to datamax and they aren't doing a new version of this driver for windows?

I've tried disabling the following Group Policy Object. Click START/RUN gpedit.msc navigated to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Printers and changed Disallow installation of printers using kernel-mode drivers to Disabled still no joy.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, David

Hello Overson, welcome to the forum

Windows update does not necessarily install the newest drivers . If you are having no problems with the driver 266.58 then I would stay with that one

I am not sure if this is where it belongs, or if it is a Graphics Card issue. I have an Acer Aspire 7741z-4433 with an Intel(R) Pentium(R) p6200 (2.13 GHz, 3MB 1.3 cache). This only happens to me while I am playing The Sims 3. I have the game set on the lowest quality settings, even though my laptop "claims" to be HD LED, etc. This issue still happens. As you may know I cannot replace the graphics card as it is apart of the motherboard, and to buy a new motherboard with a better graphics card would cost more than a new computer. I have been the my manufacture's website and tried installing an update of the graphics card, and that didn't do the trick either. I am at my wits end, and I just want to play the game without it shutting down and freezing my computer. The reason I know the error is because I do Alt + Tab to get back to the desktop. The way it acts up while I am in game is the screen blacks out but I can still see the software's mouse, and then it blinks a couple times and then freezes completely, causing me to do a hard shut down. What can I do to resolve this issue?

Hello...I need some serious help.....My specs are Toshiba Qosmio G10 laptop running Win XP Media Center edition SP2 with Intel Pentium M 1.8ghz 1GB RAM, 100 GB HDD (2 drives, 60:40). I regularly download music for itunes using bittorrent sites and have approx 20 GB of music on my laptop.

Last night I watched a movie on a pirated DVD borrowed from a friend. If the following problem could possible be due to the DVD, pls let me know as this is the first time I watched a pirated DVD on my laptop and I am sooooo very angry at myself if this is the case.

I left AVG anitivirus running afterwards and went to sleep.

When I woke up, the blue screen was on and mentioned that there had been an error in the NVP_DISP.DLL file and a physical dump had to be executed. The computer waited until I woke up. Each time I rebooted the system went to the blue screen and had to be rebooted. I started it in Safe mode and eventually figured that I had to disable the display adapter which I did from the Safe mode in the Device Manager. Thereafter I am able to start but I have white vertical lines in sort of pairs in the beginning as well as in the Win XP logo (full screen lines) when the system reboots. I can see these lines on the desktop as well.

After disabling the display adapter, when Windows discovers new hardware, then it is unable to find the drivers. I also downloaded the uptodate driver of Nvidia from website. And as soon as I enable the display adapter, the blue scr... Read more
