display driver nvidia windows kernel mode some driver problem
  1 / 2    
"display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 196.21 stopped responding and has successfuly recovered" - that's what's written in the bubble of the error i have all the time

when i play video games the screen goes blank sometimes and then comes back to normal freezing the game for a few seconds
and when i'm quitting quickly to the desktop i see that bubble
i've been looking for a solution to this problem for a few weeks by now and still nothing i can think of to fix this

my video card is a 9800gt and the driver is up to date
and i have a power supply of 500w which i think is enough for my whole system
OS - windows 7 64-bit

there's another topic on this forum from last year i hope there is a solution by now for it
[url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=109407&st=0"]http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=109407&st=0[/url]

i heard on the web that this is only a vista & win7 problem but even in my windows XP i have that problem (actually it's even worse because in windows 7 the system at least RECOVERS after that thing)

this pc isn't old at all i got it about 4 months ago
can anyone help please? this is my last hope before using my warranty and switching to some other card (but then again ATI has the same problem from what i heard)

i recommend you actually read up on what you are commenting on before you spout nonsense that simply shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. it isnt an NVIDIA problem, and if you knew what you were talking about you wouldnt have made the mistake of advising moving to ATI.

read the post in my sig about NVLDDMKM - you may learn a thing or two. mainly that it is normally caused by a fault with the PC, and that moving to ATI will have similar problems just with a different name as their driver fails too.

I have the same issue using an Nvidia Geforce GT220 version 196.21. I did some research and found that some feel it could be a conflict between the Nvidia driver and direct X, but I am running direct X 11. When I analyzed the minidump file I got the following result....

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

17 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

I deleted the Nvidia display driver today and when I restarted the pc windows automatically installed the newest display driver. I have not gotten a bluescreen yet... but the computer is freezing up and can only be corrected with a hard restart of the system. I would appreciate any advice... Thanks!

Conclusion

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



17 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.



I deleted the Nvidia display driver today and when I restarted the pc windows automatically installed the newest display driver. I have not gotten a bluescreen yet... but the computer is freezing up and can only be corrected with a hard restart of the system. I would appreciate any advice... Thanks!

I'm running a gt220 with same issues, it works perfectly fine on Windows7, both 32\64 bit systems, but only with the original 190.45 drivers supplied by Palit's installation cd.

If I update, then I get the same as you, tdr's kick in 10 seconds after seeing desktop resulting in BSOD.

i've been looking for a solution to this problem for a few weeks by now and still nothing i can think of to fix this

my video card is a 9800gt and the driver is up to date

there's another topic on this forum from last year i hope there is a solution by now for it

i heard on the web that this is only a vista & win7 problem but even in my windows XP i have that problem (actually it's even worse because in windows 7 the system at least RECOVERS after that thing)

this pc isn't old at all i got it about 4 months ago
can anyone help please? this is my last hope before using my warranty and switching to some other card (but then again ATI has the same problem from what i heard)[/quote]


I have the same problem when I run Bad Company 2.
When "display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 196.21 stopped responding and has successfuly recovered" in the background when playing BC2
the screen goes white. The sound is still there.
Only way to get out of this is to ctrl,alt,delete and close the game.
Please look into it Nvidia. Not able to play the game long before this issue appears.

YOU need to look into it. see the link in my Sig.

read the first post and understand the problem is most likely with your PC not with the driver.

same goes to everyone posting here, check the link in my sig. if the problem lies with for example your underpowered PSU, faulty RAM of incorrect BIOS setting, nothing nidia could do in drivers would sort it.

I have been experiencing this error for a while and thought it was due to bad oc. I got rid of the OC and started running the default bios but the problem continues. Unlike many people, my problem error does not happen when playing games. It only happens when I run Adobe Photshop CS4.

I have read the common reason for this error from your post and I don't have any of these problems. I am hoping I can find a fix to this.

I had the same problem with all 2 of my my desktop. I changed the bios setting at the begining of computer startup and this fix all 3 desktop(2 of my computer and one of my friend's computer).

In the bios, go to

Standard Cmos features

===>Lower the dram settings.

You need to go into the memory settings in the BIOS and lower the correct timings (eg. 8-8-8-24) and set the memory frequency. The Uncore clock will probably need to be set to 24x, and the DRAM voltage should be lowered by two or more (eg 1.64v to 1.62v).



Every dram is different, so google ur best setting for your dram bios and that should fix the problem.

i recommend you actually read up on what you are commenting on before you spout nonsense that simply shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. it isnt an NVIDIA problem, and if you knew what you were talking about you wouldnt have made the mistake of advising moving to ATI.

read the post in my sig about NVLDDMKM - you may learn a thing or two. mainly that it is normally caused by a fault with the PC, and that moving to ATI will have similar problems just with a different name as their driver fails too.

omg thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction,i fixed it :} the problem was realteck hd audio that id installed yesterday,i uninstalled it and my pc is back running gooooood :} cheers dude

Hi guys,

I think I have found a solution to this ongoing "Nvidia windows kernal mode stopped responding" error that seems to be plaguing quite a lot of people, particularly those with Windows 7. I have a new Windows 7 build up and running for about 6 weeks now - i7 960, 6gig DDR3, 850 watt PSU. About a week ago all my games started suffering from graphic artifacts - colored pixels, stripes and flashes, etc - then just completely crashed or would freeze up as soon as they started. I then started getting this kernal mode error followed by the screen turning black for a few seconds before going back to normal. I had first thought it was my GPU failing (GeForce gtx570) or other hardware issues, but reading through hundreds of forums I found a solution that worked. I am not sure if one or all of the following was the answer but I tried each one in sequence and low and behold, everything was back to normal:

1) Several suggestions pointed to ADOBE AIR as the problem, which supposedly caused a conflict. I doubted it but proceeded to uninstall it as recommended. I also uninstalled the NVIDIA HD audio drivers.

2) Other sources pointed to the way Windows 7's BIOS reads ram and suggested you set your DRAM frequency from "auto" to the exact frequency your particular RAM operates at in BIOS (it will cause a hard reboot, but don't worry).

3) Many other suggestions had to do with Power Management, recommending selecting the high performance mode under the advanced tab for power modes and changing the value for PCI express power saving to off.

4) The last thing I did was reinstall driver 266.58 after removing 270.51 (the current one from NVIDIA's website). I installed it without the HD audio or physx drivers (I clicked them off from the custom menu) and downloaded Physx version 9.10.0513 separately from NVIDIA. After installation and reboot, everything worked perfectly. All my games were back to normal as if nothing had happened.

I can not say for certain which one of these solutions worked or if they all had something to do with it. Suffice to say, give them a try. Good luck.
