Might wanna try doing a Clean install with Driver Sweeper It doesn't say but when you run driver sweeper make sure you are in safe mode and run it as ADMIN Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

NVIDIA Driver Issue

This morning, I did due diligence with my malware/anti-virus programs along with a back-up and new System Restore point. Before doing Mintos45's and Smarteyeball's suggestions, I called Dell just for kicks. The gentleman I spoke to was familiar with the problem. He ran Window Fix-it and found two issues. Next, he looked at my driver updates and said all was well there. Finally, he went to nVidia and downloaded two drivers from them. A few more tests were run and all was deemed to be okay. Two hours later, he called back to see if any problems had occurred. All was well, at that point (and continues to be fine). He said, "Since the problem has been intermittent, I'll call Friday around 11:00 AM to check on you."

By the way, he got rid of some of the unneeded drivers. So far, so good. I appreciate your help and will keep you posted.

I dunno . . . the jury is still out. Yesterday, I had no problems at work. When I got home, however, I got the black screen twice within an hour. I went back to the previously installe nVidia drive, uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled. I rebooted again and used it until around 11:00 PM with no issues. We'll see . . . .

Solved NVIDIA Driver Issue

Well, it's ba-a-a-a-ck. I got the same nVidia Windows Kernal mode driver 295.73 error message this morning. The Dell tech who helped me last week called Friday to check on the "fix." At that time, it was fine. He sent me an e-mail to keep with all the information saying, if the problem returned, reply to it and he'd contact me. I think I'm going to try that.

Talking to the technician USUALLY solves things... If not, you'll have to keep searching. Good lucky though.

NVIDIA Driver Issue

Yes, Mintos, I think you're right about being lucky. By the way, the Dell tech initiated your suggestion by removing some of the drivers. Anyway, I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Well if it all doesnt work out, you can try downloading the druver AGAIN, then go to safe mode and uninstall your vid card drivers. If you have driver sweeper then go to driver sweeper, check the boxes 'NVIDIA PHYSX, NVIDIA chipset' and one other nvidia box which i forgot.
Keep us posted on your progress, hopefully the tech can fix it once and for all

Edit: If the techie fixes it, record the steps and post em back here, I dont think youre the only one with this problem.
