Windows 7: 2 nvvsvc.exe

22 Dec 2011   #1

2 nvvsvc.exe

I have 2 instances of nvvsvc.exe running in the task manager.

They are both of different sizes and start up every time I turn on the laptop.

If I end both apps, nothing seems to be effected.

Do I need both or even one of these nvidia apps running?

Same here . Moreover, both of those indicates the same file , nvvsvc.exe in system32 .

I think both of those are needed .

EDIT : In process explorer, one is being shown under the other ....

Have you all downloaded the nvidia driver from their site?

It seems like I started to notice the 2 nvvsvc after I tried to download the drivers from the nvidia site.

Unfortunately, I've had problems with the nvidia drivers from their site.

While it would run my system better, it would not recognize my hdtv display, and would not restart on its own without powering down manually and starting again.

So I uninstalled and installed the driver from the hp site.

I have constantly had this restarting problem ever since I downloaded the nvidia drivers from their site.

Nothing I do seems to fix this problem.

I've cleaned and tried to delete all files with nvidia in them, but inevitably, it seems like there are traces of the drivers from the nvidia site which causes problems

The only way I've been able to solve the restart problem is to a clean install.

Does anyone have any suggestions about not having to manually power down and on when restarting your computer?

Please explain nVidia nvvsvc.exe and nvxdsync.exe processes.
I don't understand. Do these processes have anything to do with actual functioning of the driver? I have 2 nvvsvc.exe processes, and 1 nvxdsync.exe process. What exactly are the 2 nvvsvc processes for? What do they do? I guess these are both necessary for nVida advanced features/effects? ...

So I recently have been noticing a weird, little box on my desktop. And when I drag it to a bigger version, its just a black box. Kinda like a blank cmd. After that I went to my Processes, and found these 3 .exe's without any paths. Now I think, that the nvvsvc.exe is Nvidia drivers or something...
