Windows 7: Nvlddmkm stopped responding when gaming

Nvlddmkm stopped responding when gaming

Hello everyone

This is my first time posting for help, so please bear with me
I have attached a DxDiag which has my system specs to help.

Everytime I go into a graphic intensive game/program I randomly get this error "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.". I do not think it is a hardware issue as the problem only occured when I started to update the drivers.

To solve this, I have tried the following but to no avail;
- Uninstalled and clean installed the latest nividia drivers
- Reformatted my windows drive

I'm still not very sure what is the problem (could be a driver clash or HDD corruption), so i'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. Do I need to run SF Diagnostic Tool?

Most often it is just the driver.

Nvidia drivers

delete all nvidia drivers for your video card only restart comp and instal new driver .and if you dont use the 3d surround sound stuff uncheck it. I was having the same prob and was stuck on the 295.73 driver it was the only one that worked,now i have the 306.23

Hi Again

I tried doing a clean install of the drivers but it still gives me the crash randomly in games. I ran Furmark to check the GPU, but after it got to 56degrees it froze for a while, then it bluescreened.

I have attached the dump file, but i'm not sure how to read it.

Thanks

I'm starting to wonder if a failing power supply isn't your problem.
All these symptoms could be attributed to undervoltage of the card.
56c is not hot for a gpu at all. it's got another 20c to go before it's even considered overly warm.
