Windows 7: Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Hello everyone:
I have come across the message (from a video card failure) that says “Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.”
I know people have this problem all the time; I have found a solution after a long period of time.
The solution is to do all of the following steps:
1. Uninstall all video drivers
2. Update your drivers to the latest version
3 Update your bios
4. Try different PCIe/PCI/AGP slots on your motherboard
5. Try different power rails coming from your power supply
-make sure your power supply can support your graphics card.
6. Update your version of Direct X
7. Update your chipset drivers
8. Go to your video card settings>advanced settings> and set everything to application controlled
9. Go to your video card settings>advanced manage 3D settings> and turn off vertical sync
10. make sure your card is not overheating
11. Memory can sometimes cause video problems, run a memtest

-Info about TDR and other info

Set 9 is what fixed my problem
If none of this works reinstall your OS and try all these steps again.

I hope this thread blooms and helps everyone out there having the same issue as me.

Just some key words: temporary black screen, driver crash, video card, drivers, problems, flicker.

Just an update, here are more things you can try:

13. Remove one monitor ( if you are using more than one)
14. Sometime realtek drive conflict with other drivers change any network realtek drivers
15. make sure your monitor is set at the proper refresh rate
16. Sometimes USB devices (specifically webcams) cause strange error. Remove them and uninstall the drivers and USB drivers. Microsoft did release an update for windows 7 to resolve this issue, but try it any way.
17. multi-display/Mixed GPU in Nvidia control panel = compatibility
18. multi-display/Mixed GPU = Single display performance mode
19. Check out system configuration>tools>System Information>Hardware>Conflicts/sharing
20. If Step 8/9 did not work try turning on triple buffering and vertical sync (force on).
