nvlddmkm.sys 0x116 TDR BSOD on Nvidia Optimus Laptop

Hello,

I am getting "attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed" blue screen when playing games on my laptop. I don't think it's a heat issue because I get BSOD even on game menus or when log-in to World of Warcraft. Sometimes I get BSOD after 2 secs when logging to WoW and it resets the system.

Format, updating/downgrading drivers with clean install, using OEM drivers didn't work. I did some stress tests on my system with OCCT and got no errors, blue screens on tests.

About the crash reports WhoCrashed says it's nvlddmkm.sys gives errors and BlueScreenView says it's dxgkrnl.sys. I don't really get it.

Here is my WhoCrashed report;

Sorry for the late response. I tried that guide and it didn't solve my issue. But I downclocked my graphic chipsets "graphics clock" a bit and now I am getting less blue screens. It's a temporary fix though. Do you have any other fix on mind? Still getting BSODs.

On the subject of overclocking, as you are having problems please revert back to stock settings. I see that you are using driver version 310.33, which is a Beta driver. As such, it may have issues with certain system configurations. What driver version did you have previously? You could try rolling back to that to see if your problem persists.

Thanks for the reply. I am not overclocking, I downclocked my cards graphics clock from 672MHz to 625MHz. With stock settings I get instant blue screens in games.

For the driver version, it doesn't matter which one I am using. I even get BSOD after format my laptop to factory settings.

You may try installing some older version of the display driver which was stable there

I installed older drivers, even OEM drivers, but it didn't help.
