Windows 7: BSOD: cdd.dll Kernel-Power error while using graphics-heavy apps

BSOD: cdd.dll Kernel-Power error while using graphics-heavy apps

I get a BSOD while doing pretty much anything graphics intensive... Before my most recent fresh install of Windows 7, it used to happen while playing games (occasionally while playing StarCraft II or Half-Life 2: Episode 2) but it now is starting to occur (after the fresh install) more frequently and has spread to programs like After Effects. I started to get graphics glitches while rendering a composition (which spread to other programs like Firefox) followed by a BSOD listing the cdd.dll file to blame.

My event viewer states that there have been 3 BSOD's since I've reformatted all linked to a "Kernel-Power" error. I have no idea what this is.

I am hoping this is not a hardware issue, as I don't have the money to replace my video card on a yearly basis.

Im going to call in the reserves on this one... it points to adf.sys and cdd.sys. neither of which I can find out much about... but it does mention that steam was involved at the time of the crashes... be patient, we'll get to the bottom of it as soon as possible...

BLESS YOU! I have just installed older video drivers (from July) to see if that corrects the more extreme of the problems, however, I was getting similar cdd.dll (and some other ones that don't mention any driver at all) BEFORE the new video drivers were installed.

Hi,

Graphics drivers blamed in 2 out of 3 crashes, however they appear to be fully up to date. Therefore hardware failure is a possibility.

Video Card stress test - Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Also your networking driver needs updating:
Code:
nvm62x32.sys Sat Oct 18 10:00:39 2008 (48F8FCF7)
You should be able to find an update from your motherboard manufacturer's website.

Downloading the 10/2009 nForce 430 drivers directly from Nvidia (latest and last driver released for my networking chip, as they seem to have stopped supporting it). I think a new motherboard may be in order if all of my drivers are no longer being maintained and supported by the chipset manufacturers.

I installed prior Nvidia drivers for my GPU and the graphical glitches/errors appear to have stopped. They were particularly prevalent in After Effects.

I will do a video stress test as well.

Would you guys recommend I do a test on my memory and my HDD? Could they cause these types of errors? I just want a healthy PC. I hate when stuff like this happens.

Thank you for your help!

If problems continue then yes, the next step is to run a memory test.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

See how the rolled-back drivers go first.

Do the video stress first, if that comes back ok, then you can do the other tests just to eliminate any doubts...
