Windows 7: Error 14: Could not find source nvlddmkm. How to fix this?

17 Dec 2012   #11

Windows Home Premium 64bit

First off: Thanks Bill, I will post my system specs soon, but now I don't really have time.
Second: For the ones who want to know this. If I hit Ctrl+alt+delete on the black screen and wait for 10 minutes. If I then go to my Coogle Chrome browser and type in a Youtube film, whenever the film starts, my computer freezes and this can't be fixed with the Ctrl+alt+delete way. On the lower right of the browser you can see it's stuck on "waiting for cache". I don't know if this is important to this issue? I've already deleted Adobe and Java things and reinstalled them. So that can't be it. What now?

I don't actually get this error so often, but there are new problems.
I'm having a crash when I use the Ctrl+alt+delete way (read the previous posts) and when I'm on Youtube it crashes.
This is the second strangest thing: If my computer crashes and I reboot it, I won't get any error at all! The system doesn't show the 4101 error: nvlddmkm.
All of these problems first started when I was a week away from home and came back home. Could it be that?

your previous post you mentioned ndlddmkn means it is pointing to your nvidia drivers

I didn't get any BSOD. So I don't have any dumps... But the 4101 is:
- <Event xmlns="">
- <System>
<Provider Name="Display" />
<EventID Qualifiers="0">4101</EventID>
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2012-12-21T13:02:19.000000000Z" />
<Security />
- <EventData>
<Data />
But my friends are telling me it's dust in the graphic card. Could it be that? Because I've been away for a week...

I think it could be dust. My friend had some strange errors too, which looked like software issues. But when he cleaned his computer after a year and started his computer, he noticed his errors were gone. Not all of them though. But that nvlddmkm error, could it be a real software issue or a hardware-dust issue?

Last thing I could find: if I press Ctrl+Alt+delete when the black screen appears and when I look at the framerate, I notice that the framerate is lower than it should be. What does this mean? It think it is a hardwareproblem.

Then just get it tested and replaced if it is under warranty

Ok, so since I bought and assembled my PC about a month ago(running x64 home edition), I have been getting random bluescreens. I used Bluescreen view and it seems that all my BSODs are caused by ntoskrnl.exe. And from what I have been able to gather is that it is caused by a corrupt Windows...
