Windows 7: nvlddmkm stopped responding

nvlddmkm stopped responding

Hello, recently I've been getting the same error over a period of anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour and it says Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered. It usually happens when watching youtube videos or any videos in general. I also see it sometimes happen on lower end games, but higher end games run fine without it crashing.

I recently got a new gfx card that fixed previous crashes as well as the nvlddmkm bsod. The only problem is I've reinstalled the driver many times, tried various ways to reinstall using driver sweeper etc. As well as updated everything from my drivers, chipsets, directx, flash, changing to windows classic, and reinstalling the realtek sound driver.

Nothing seems to help fix it from what I've read up on this. I have run memory tests in the past and I know for sure it's not my ram or my power supply. I'm not overclocking anything either, basically all that happens is the monitor flickers black, sound messes up while it does this for a few seconds, then it fixes itself, videos and few applications will be messed up and need to be restarted. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to fix this, because I've tried everything. All help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Shane

I still haven't fixed the issue yet, was hoping for some feedback.

I have had the same issue periodically. I assume it's a driver issue or somesuch. I don't know of a quick fix for it either and it happens so rarely for me at least I just ignore it basically lol.

It appears you have done as much as is possible to do so I have no idea where you would go from here. Sorry

Do the following. Completely uninstall all NVIDIA graphics drivers. Download and install Driver Sweeper Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper. Boot up into Safe Mode, run Driver Sweeper, and use it to remove all traces of NVIDIA - Graphics files left. Then, boot up into Windows 7 again, and install the latest NVIDIA drivers for your GTX 460.

Just tried that but it didn't work, I removed all nvidia files in safemode rebooted and installed driver 280.26. I did a clean install too, tried watching a long video to test it; the driver crashes and restarts again like usual.

Check event viewer, does it show any log of the error?

Have you tried the previous NVIDIA WHQL driver 275.33? Again, follow the steps to uninstall, and clean the remaining files in Safe Mode from my previous post to do so. IMO its less buggy then the 280 series, the 280 driver series are always failing to display anything on the screen (black screen only) for me on my laptop.

I just tried again using the NVIDIA WHQL driver 275.33, tested a few videos it seemed fine for a while then it crashed and restarted. Also here's the event viewer error.

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
