Possible Solution for Nvidia Kernel Mode driver malfunction...

A friend of mine has been having this very same problem for quite a while now, and I spent a considerable amount of time searching for a solution or clues that might lead me to one. Tried different drivers, but nothing seemed to make a difference.
Today, the system started failing right at start-up, and it was obvious that it was due to graphics board malfunction. So, I decided to extract the graphics card and take a closer look at it. Unscrewed the heat-sink, and straight away realized that the thermal paste was completely dried out and definitely not doing its job. So, I scraped off and cleaned out all the old paste, and replaced it with a new thin layer of new paste. Took the opportunity to clean out the heat-sink and fan, and set everything up again neatly. After re-installing the board back in place, re-started the system, and to my great surprise, it suddenly became completely normal and stable. Has been now, for a few hours, after stress tests with intensive graphics applications and games. After all this, it occurs to me that the problem may in fact be due to overheating of the graphics processor, and the defective dissipation of the heat produced.
So here's the suggestion: take some time to look at the hardware instead of the software. Make sure that you have a good heat transference between the surface of the graphics processor and the heat-sink. Might save you some time and a lot of headaches. It might be as simple as this... Give it a try...

I'd been getting this problem the last couple of weeks, I'd tried everything software wise, to no avail. So at last resort, I decided to take out my graphics card for a closer look (I have the GTX 550 btw) and much to my surprise it was full of dust, I unscrewed the front fan panel off and gave it a good blow of compressed air. Loaded it back in with no problem and I haven't had any issues now for a few days!

So, pretty much echoing Cyberius' post (thanks alot btw), in my case cleaning the graphics card in the case is pretty much impossible, take all the standard safety procedures and you should be good to go.

Hey guys I am getting a similar Driver Stopped responding issue on my ASUS notebook that carries an Nvidia Geforce GTX560M. I was hoping it was a Windows 7 or driver issue so I rolled back my drivers and when that failed to work I just did a clean install of my OS and used the original manufacturer supplied Disc Drivers. Still having the same Nvidia crash issue. Since my warranty just expired; I opened up the case, cleaned out the fan, GPU, CPU, heatsink, applied new Arctic Silver then swapped the RAM Chips, using a friend's laptop that carried the same type RAM, and it still didn't help.
So I eliminated dust, heat, RAM, OS, Drivers and wondering if it really could be my worst fear of failing Motherboard, processor or GPU.
So here is when the problem occurs. The laptop work fine under normal conditions and even works well with F.E.A.R. 3 on MAX and crashed after 15mins in 1 in 4 tests. If however I tried Skyrim on Ultra or even Old Gears of War it runs for a short while then crashes. I tested a less demanding C&C Kane's Wrath and it ran flawlessly. I tried Futuremark Performance tests which I had not run for a long time ago and it crashed a couple seconds into the test...
Anyone got any ideas?

I once had this exact problem with an older 9600GT and it turned out to be video-bios related, for some reason the card fan would remain stuck at 30% and when under load the card would stop responding hence causing the dreaded TDR error. Few have also reported overheating issues and manufacturing defects in the video ram itself. The best solution is to replace/RMA the card.
