Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Stopped Responding

I just built this computer on monday, but i'm receiving numerous freeze-ups with the message "display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver, version 191. 07 stopped responding. "

I'm also getting a few bsod's referencing nvlddmkm and sometimes the computer simply freezes up and i have to reboot. I googled these problems and found a lot of people are having the same/similar problems. However, there does not seem to be any real fix to it. In fact, ms blames nvidia and nvidia blames ms. Now, i can rule out the following "usual suspects":
- I have the latest nvidia drivers (although some people believe they are the problem)
- I have enough power
- I have enough ram
- It's cool enough (although i don't know what the exact gpu temp is)

I thought maybe the problem was with the video card because it is the only "old" hardware i used and i had had some problems with it in my old computer. At first i didn't have a powerful enough psu, and after i upgraded i still had problems (it would freeze up when i used any graphics intensive software (games, quicktime, etc)). So i thought maybe it was either a bad card or it got damaged in my last computer. But so many other people have the same/similar problems that maybe it isn't the card. So before i "solve" this problem by buying a radeon, does anyone now what the problem is or how to fix it?

My computer:
Antec nine hundred two case
Corsair hx750 psu
Msi p5-gd80 mobo
8 gb corsair dominator ram
Geforce 9600gt (with current drivers - 191. 07)
Windows 7 64-bit

Display Driver Nvlddmkm Stopped Responding

I recently upgraded both the motherboard and my video card and have been experiencing ongoing issues of the same symptoms with 3 of my most played games, which are bioshock, counter-strike source and crysis. Issue will occur at random, which results in game play pausing for a few seconds then screen goes black. Only way to get out of it is to perform a ctrl+alt+del then terminate affected game via task manager, in which a vista bubble notification appears in the bottom right stating "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding, but has successfully recovered"

It seems that many people have been experiencing this issue for quite sometime (over a year) based on the searches i've done any have not been able to find any solutions. Any thoughts and/or suggestions guys?

I'm also running the latest version of forceware drivers, which is 182. 08, which was released last week.

Driver Stopped Responding - All Unreal Engine 3 Games

I was having issues with mirror's edge a few months ago where the drivers would stop responding. I figured it was the game and forgot about it. Now, i have borderlands and it is doing the same thing. It appears that all unreal engine 3 games are causing the drivers to stop responding for some reason. Temps are always below 65 on average, but right before the crash they go up to 70-72 degrees (and the gpu usage goes from 50% to 80-100% in borderlands). I just can't figure out why the drivers would stop responding. Tried catalyst 9. 6, 9. 8, 9. 10, vista, and windows 7. All result in the same thing. Anyone have any tips or fixes that might work? Getting kind of annoyed :/

These crashes don't happen on a computer with an ati 3650 in it.

Error - Display Driver Stopped Responding And Successfully Recovered

I am getting an error message which says "display driver stopped responding and successfully recovered" after a blank screen (for 2-4 seconds). The computer is this one. I am using vista 64bit on this. The error report created by vista is this:


Video hardware error

Best Nvidia To Ati Driver Install Practice

I've been an nvidia user for years, and i just recently bought a pair of 5870's. I'm currently running vista 64 with a single gtx 260 (was sli, but a card died. ) The 5870's are arriving thursday, and i've got a large lan to attend on friday, so i need some advice. What is the current preferred method for wiping the nvidia drivers and installing the catalyst drivers?

I do realize that a format might be the only way to ensure no issues, but time is not on my side, and i was holding off for ssd's before a new install anyway. Any thoughts on the best approach? Will driver sweeper be enough for the job?

Windows 7 Computer Wont Boot In Normal Mode

I was running 64bit vista for a while until i encountered some problems. I tried to fix these problems, but my copy of vista can't be validated by microsoft (it was fine when i installed it, authenticated and worked fine). My computer won't boot in normal mode, only in safe mode. I've decided to upgrade to windows 7, but i'm not sure if i should buy the upgrade or clean install disks. I figure if vista doesn't work properly (crashing whenever it tries to boot in normal mode), then an upgrade won't work. Also, if authentication fails, for whatever reason, then i would be in trouble. I'm not sure what the best solution is. I don't have a problem backing up files i don't want to lose. I just don't want to buy the wrong type of windows 7 installation disk. I've already decided on buying windows 7 home premium (64 bit version), but should i get upgrade package or the clean install disks?

Error: Kernel Panic Killed Init - Cable Issues

I was sitting here today trying to build a small cluster out of old 300-400 mhz comps when i noticed i couldn't install linux on one because both the cd and floppy drives were broken. So i went out and bought a new cd drive. Well i was messing around with the cables , both the ide and power supply cables, and now it cannot detect my hard drive. I re arranged the cables and actually got it to recognize my hard drive but now linux will not start correctly. Says something like "kernel panic killed init".

Windows 7 + Nvidia Forceware = No Adapter Scaling

I use 2 displays on my computer: a dell monitor @ 1024x1280 + a wide-screen hdtv @ 1080p (not usually at the same time). Sometimes i like to play games on my monitor and sometimes on my hdtv. Problem is many resolution modes on my monitor won't display at all on the hdtv since the hdtv doesn't support many of the resolutions. So whenever switch to the hdtv to play games, all i see is a black screen. Normally in xp, i have the video card set to do display adapter scaling to solve all these resolution problems. Adapter scaling basically upconverts the video signal to the native resolution of your display so that virtually any resolution can be used on it. But with windows 7 when i choose nvidia scaling (aka adapter scaling), it reverts back to display scaling every time. This problem also occurs in xp for all forceware versions in the last 2 years, but can be fixed with a simple little run command line:

Rundll32.exe nvcpl.dll, dtcfg setscaling 1 da 2

However, this method does not seem to work anymore in windows 7. Secondly, if i have an hdtv attached to the card, it will automatically treat it as an hdtv in windows 7 and will not let you treat it as a pc display, which means it it will only let you resize the picture but won't give you any scaling options. So, to summarize:

1) scaling options are missing for hdtv displays
2) when scaling option is changed to "use nvidia scaling", it always reverts back to "use my display's builtin scaling"

Anyone know how to get nvidia scaling (adapter scaling) working on an hdtv?

Other important missing features i thought i'd mention and could use help with too:

Nvtray- no longer works to enable all the classic features that were available before the they made the new nvidia control panel. When i try it on windows 7, it just crashes explorer.exe whenever i enter "advance settings" for the video settings

No more nview - means features like having seperate wallpapers for each display is gone.goodbye to multiple desktops. No more hotkey functions. I normally use a hotkey two switch between the two displays, which i activate with a logitech harmony remote.

Auzentech X-fi Prelude And Windows 7 Driver Issues

I've had the auzentech x-fi prelude for a couple of years now under vista and i've really loved it, never gave me issue 1. I recently moved to windows 7, and ever since i'll get a random loud ass *pop screeching white noise. Pop

Its not constant but annoying as *** and it will scare the crap out of you. Ive seen some widespread reports on their user forums but they havnt released any kind of fix or driver update. I'm sick of it and thinking of moving on. What would you suggest to replace it and get the same quality without the damn problem?
