Driver verified and Related to nvlddmkm.sys nVidia Display Driver.. Finally.

I would re-install the newest version of the driver using these instructions.


When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Still getting BSOD's after the gfx card driver update. Should I try rolling back the driver to an earlier version (assuming the cause is still nvlddmkn.sys) or is there something else that you'd suggest?

So I rolled back my gfx card driver to an older (said to me more stable) version and it looked like that fixed the issue, but I got another BSOD today. However, I'm wondering if it is my headset causing issues again (I had to continue to use it since I could not replace it atm). Is this new dmp file conclusive?

Just to say but you have a driver dated from 2006: secdrv.SYS ( Macrovision SECURITY Driver) (This device driver is part of Macrovision's SafeDisc copy protection scheme)

I recommend to update that one

Just an FYI, that security driver is the newest version. There have been no newer versions.

Well after testing a couple different gfx card driver versions it looks like I'm getting a new BSOD (Bcc code 50, looked like it said win32k.sys is what caused it) with the latest beta one. Driver verifier was still pointing to the same nvidia driver earlier this week before the update, but I haven't tried it yet with this beta driver (I'm going to try and catch a BSOD with verifier running tomorrow).

Any new suggestions with this BSOD?


Edit: I should note that I was tabbed over to firefox at the time of this BSOD and was only sitting idle in the game I was playing, if that helps discern anything.

With verifier running I'm still getting the same BSOD from the above post.

I'm not really sure what to do at this point. The prior BSOD's pointed to the nvidia driver nvlddmkm.sys on two separate release drivers and the newest beta one I'm using is causing this new BSOD (pointing to win32k.sys on the message). I tested my gfx card with OCCT again just to see if it was failing but it passed the stress test and memory test with no errors.


Here are the three BSOD's that occurred while running verifier today (the two on start-up are the a's and the new one that's been happening is the 50).

Driver verified and Related to skfiltv.sys Audio Driver from Creative Technology Ltd.

I would remove to test and if necessary update to the newest possible driver.

I removed the audio driver but I'm still getting BSOD's.
