@Tinsby. I started getting the same problem recently. I've been using the same GPU since I built this machine several years ago and I haven't updated the driver in several years. Since we both started getting the problem roughly at the same time, I'm wondering if the problem may be an update caused issue with either Win 7 or some other program.

May well be Jeanne but the original problem was fixed a while back with a new GTX 750Ti only the problem has come back to haunt.

At the moment there is a hunt on for the cause of this problem and I am sure it is some sort of other hardware issue, unless the card has gone bad

All the same I am thinking maybe a system restore might see if it might be an update

Are you getting the same message as I am?

Hi Lady Fitzgerald,

I've attached a grab of what the error message shows when the monitor comes back on. Are you getting the same message that points to the driver?

ICIT2LOL is working on it with me bit by bit, he's got a lot on his plate at the moment so I really appreciate his or anyone else's help.

Sad thing it with the error and the blank screen it happens so infrequntly it's tough to nail down!

I hope you get yours sorted! There are tons of articles about the same error message, just Google it and see!

Thank you for your interest in my problem!

Best thing was whist adding the .jpg attachment to this post,,,,,,,, the monitor went blank and I got the message!!! Weird eh?

PPS: And I was using the Chrome browser not the normal FF!!!

I have the same problem with the error message being too brief and too infrequently to nail down. I'm getting pretty much the same message. My GPU is AMD, though.

Hi,
Seeing that the existing driver is pretty old at 353.62 and the one I'm on is 378.49 I'd say try a driver that was at least offered in late 2016

More to the story!

HI ThrashZone!

Well I have updated the driver and it still acts the same IE: Error message except with the new driver number! <sigh>

But I have found some interesting things in the Event Viewer, I've attached the screen captures below to illustrate. The error is being called by 'nvlddmkm' as you can see there are a lot of them. There's a lot if info around on that error here's one page I found: Fixing the Nvlddmkm Error (Display driver stopped responding and has recovered) (some of these may be outdated due to the age of Win7) The registry hack only shows the 32 bit version of 7.

I have done a lot of them but it makes no sense to do a whole lot at once, that doesn't tell you what hopefully, fixed the issue.

I am soldiering ON, waiting for the next 'crash!'

Hello to ICIT2LOL I know you're out there!

Hi,
I'd take a look at this and only install what is installed on the tutorial
NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

After restart using clean boot
Use Clean boot,
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
Click Start and type in the search box,
msconfig
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,
See the links above my signature on how to take and upload screen shots here,
Cheers.

Thrash, Why do you feel that removing the drivers in the linked tutorial is better and more thorough than using the program DDU, Display Driver Uninstaller? Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 17.0.6.1 This is specifically designed to remove all vestiges of Nvidia and AMD drivers, including registry entries.

Here's what I have been doing, contrary to the suggestion(s):

I boot to safe mode with no networking, my AV is disabled along with all malware programs
I run the DDU program
Then I install ONLY the graphics driver using Clean Installation
Once done I reboot

Maybe the DDU program wasn't written when the first help tutorial was made. I don't know.

I can do as the article suggests but it's not removing registry entries or the other Nvidia folder that resides in C:\Program Files (x86). But I feel as if I am leaving clutter behind by doing so.

I'd be curious to hear your thoughts, don't mistake what I am saying as being difficult! I want the bleeding thing fixed as much as, or MORE, than you guys!

Regards,

J T
