I have a problem with my graphics sometimes when whatching youtube or on certian sites with video but i still can play games etc.
My pc screen goes blank and will not come back on, it used to flash up sometimes with nvidia has stopped responding and has recovered.
My card is a nvidia gts 250 drivers uptodate running windows 7 64 bit, i looked at the dump and it says Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+929adc )
Hope someone can shed a little light on this problem, thank you.

Usual causes:  Video driver, overheating, bad video card, BIOS, Power to card
Please check for the latest driver updates for your graphics card on the manufacturer's website:
  1. Download Driver
  2. Start Type: Device Manager
  3. Expand Display Adapters
  4. Right-Click Driver Name, Uninstall
  5. Reboot
  6. Run Driver Sweeper
  7. Reboot
  8. Install Downloaded Driver
Driver Sweeper will scan for any left over files from the old driver, old driver files can cause conflicts with new driver installations. Create a System Restore point beforehand, in case any problems or issues arise.

Driver Sweeper: Check for any overheating issues, by posting a screenshot of your idle and load temperatures.

Follow these steps:Overclocking -

I recommend if you are overclocking any hardware, that you reset these values within the BIOS to their default values in order to increase the stability of your system.

Please run the following tests for your graphics card and RAM:
Run Memtest86+ for least 9-10 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Graphics Card:Read all the steps within the hardware test tutorials very carefully, as stress tests is designed run components to their maximum capacity, in order to point out failing or faulty hardware components.

Use the following program to monitor your hardware temperatures during the stress test:Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary: Make sure you have the latest firmware for SSD, and ensure all the SATA and Power cables are connected to the drive.

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

chkdsk C: /f /r
Scan for corrupted or missing Windows files with:Check for any driver compatibility issues with:If you are using DirectX, then try uninstalling and then reinstalling the DirectX Runtime:Test the Video RAM -
