BSOD Random 0x000000BE nvlddmkm.sys

I am randomly getting a BSOD. I have found no pattern to when I get it. (Gotten it gaming, browsing internet, and so on.) Browsed internet and the forums here and have not found anything useful looking. Attached is the .zip from the SF diagnostic tool.

Thanks in advanced for helping.

Re: KoolKat

Thanks for the quick reply. Just ran driver sweeper to remove nvidia driver, and I am installing the new driver now. Overnight I will run the Mem check and post results tomorrow after work.

As I said I did the graphics driver fix. I ran the Memtest86+ v4.20. I let it run 18 hr and 35 mins. it did over 5 passes with no error. If you would like me to upload a pic of results, let me know. Since the BSODs are few and far between, I will post down the road if anything else comes up.

Caused by the Direct X

Try this: Run DirectX Diagnostic Tool

DirectX Diagnostic Tool helps you troubleshoot issues with the DirectX suite of multimedia technologies that come with Windows. If you're having trouble getting game animation or a movie to run properly, you should run DirectX Diagnostic Tool to try to find the source of the problem.
To run DirectX Diagnostic Tool

  • Open DirectX Diagnostic Tool by clicking the Start button , typing dxdiag in the Search box, and then pressing ENTER.

Using DirectX Diagnostic Tool to diagnose problems

Here are some of the things you should be looking for:
  • Lack of hardware acceleration. Some programs run very slowly or not at all unless Microsoft DirectDraw or Direct3D hardware acceleration is available. Click the Display tab, and then under DirectX Features, check to see whether DirectDraw, Direct3D, or AGP Texture acceleration is marked Not Available. If so, you might consider upgrading your hardware. You might also need to turn on graphics acceleration.
    To turn on graphics acceleration

    1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
    2. Click Display Settings, and then click Advanced Settings.
    3. Click the Troubleshoot tab, and then click Change Settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    4. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to Full.

  • Devices are not connected. If a joystick or other input device fails to respond, it may not be properly set up. Make sure the device is present on the Input tab of DirectX Diagnostic Tool. If not, reinstall the game controller or input device by unplugging it and then plugging it back in.
  • Unsigned drivers are present. Microsoft has not tested unsigned drivers for full compatibility with the latest version of DirectX. We recommend that you use drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).

Also, if you have another graphics card or a built in video slot try using that and see if you're getting crashes
