Hi,
Do it anyway you want too
All I was saying is install only the items the tutorial suggests except for GeForce experience meaning only the actual graphics driver & PhysX is about all you need to test for a little while.
NVidia will auto install without notice Vulkin.

ThrashZone,

I had forgotten about the Vulkin being installed in the background, thanks, it's gone now. All I have is the graphics driver installed and nothing else.

I have noticed that some of the errors seem to be related to using the FF browser and videos.There is a 'plug-in container.exe' 52.0.2.6291 that can be disabled by turning off DOM.IPC.PLUGINS ( set it to DISalbed ) I have no such file in my list so I am using Chrome instead.

Yesterday I ran the machine on FF with multiple windows displaying live bird cams, for 30 minutes. In that short amount of time I had an error. Then I did the same thing with Chrome and it ran solid for 5 hours with no errors! Doesn't mean it's fixed but it is encouraging.

Cheers and beers,

J T

Hi,
I did notice a couple of "side by side.." errors but didn't recognize by whom caused it :/

Hi Thrash,

Sorry I didn't see your reply and I have't been well on top of it.

I have posted to the Nvidia forum and have a few answers to pass on to you guys.

Apparently the file "nvlddmkm.sys" is supposed to reside in multiple places including the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

I have also run Memtest for 13 hours to get 10 passes, all is well, so it's not the RAM going south.

It was suggested to use yet another driver for the next install so I did that.

BTW running the program Display Driver Uninstaller prior to the install of the new driver, I looked to see what all it removed. Lo' and behold it not only took out all the Nvidia folders but registry entries too! I was impressed to say the least since I know there was some question about it's efficacy in cleaning up things. It does work.

That's it for now I'm now using the driver recommended by the GeForce forum, I was told to install the PhysX file too, I don't even know what that does!

Regards,

J T

Hi,
You know I just noticed you have Norton installed
Possibly remove it thoroughly and use mse or free panda then clean install the driver again
Which driver version did nvidia say to use ?
You also do not show the exact cpu you have all you state is core 2 quad ?
And no the cpu is not related to the issue I'm just curious

Hope you feel better there's no rush

JT I agree with TZ mate I think I mentioned somewhere re Norton as I am not a fan at all of it. If you use the removal tool then I personally go in the HKEY's CURRENT_USER & LOCAL_MACHINE > Software and delete all entries to Symantec as well because I have found them lurking even after using the removal tool.

But do back up the registry first mate

Hi Thrash,
Doing a bit better today so that's a plus
I was told to use 375.70 driver

CPU is an Intel Core(TM) Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz

RE: Norton AV

I just discovered that when I changed over to the FIRST (defective) card I had made changes to the Norton Firewall. I did that to prevent the card and GeForce Experience from updating all the time. In the process yesterday of installing the 375.70 driver I briefly saw that it wanted to connect to the web, for whatever reason and was blocked by the firewall. I am thinking that I need to give permissions to all the NV stuff that I have blocked. It 'could' be that the card is trying to connect at various times and being blocked, throws the error code. I know it's a stretch but I surely don't need 5 NV items blocked in the firewall, who knows it might be the cause, and even if it isn't its one more stone overturned!

Both you and ICIT2LOLS interest in my problem is most appreciated!

Here I go to enable some firewall items and re-install the driver.. I should have a zipper on the darn thing!!

JT mate you can try disbaling Norton while you are doing that and I think I have mentioned I am not a fan of Norton period and would replace it with something better. But it is your choice of course.

Had a another look through mate and few things just what is that CPU you have installed I know it says dual core but then says Quad core not I would have a guess at it being a quad of some description.

The BIOS what version are you on right now.

Thew Linux boot that is I take it on the SSD?

Lastly are you running bu any chance that Samsung Magician software? I ask because it did cause issues with my Ivy Bridge desktop and uninstalling it cured it. Plus in my opinion it is quite pointless.

If I have asked these before - sorry but am out of sorts today..

Hi ICIT2LOL,

Here's what you asked for:

CPU is an Intel Core 2-QUAD Q 6600 @2.4Ghz

BIOS is: Version 1202 AMI 6/18/2009

Linux is on the SSD with 7 .... NB: I have NEVER had the issue in Linux I am having now in Win7

I am not using Samsung Magician

HTH,

J T

Note attached Event Viewer Log from Saturday and how many log entries are there for ONE error by the 'nvlddmkm.sys' file! No one seems to have an answer for this one
