NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver problem?
  1 / 2    
I recently have had an issue with my display driver, about a week ago I was watching some youtube videos when my screen turned black for about 1 second and then I received an error message from the windows error message center that said 'Display driver stopped responding and has recovered' and underneath it said 'Display driver NVIDIA Kernel Mode Driver, version 285.62 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.' After several restarts and other random acts to try and fix it I got a blue screen and my PC turned off. After turning it back on I tried uninstalling and re installing the drivers for my card which worked just fine...until 5 minutes ago when the same problem happened under the same circumstances.

Other symptoms are that I have four rectangular areas on my screen that are continuously flashing blankly and for no reason, and when opening games the screen becomes very pixelated and occasionally the game crashes.

Is there a known cause of this and/or permanent solutions? Any help that anybody could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Ohter PC Specs:

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core i5 CPU
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

If other information is needed please let me know.

Thank you in advance.

I am getting this so regularly it is becoming a REAL ANNOYANCE. I even changed my power supply thinking it might have been that, but no, it is crashing more and more. I am going to try now to revert drivers to one of about a year old, it 'might' work.

I am on a quad core HP Pavilion with a GTS 450 video card. Nvidia obviously have a problem but they appear to be ignoring it.

and nvidia continue to maintain an un healthy silence in this, their own forum. An update would be appreciated.

i used windows 64 bits before i thought it was a stability problem i formatted my hd and installed windows 7 32 bits..

i installed a game nnfs most wanted i played without an error i thought the problem finnaly was gone but after 10 minutes of being idle on my pc the ****ing screen goes black and recovers my kernel driver ****..

and dont think you can fix this by installing windows xp coz nvidia just dont have proper drivers

and for the record dont download driversweeper and uninstall your drivers coz that doesn;t work 2..
waste of time..

Think its time for nvidia to come up with a sollution

this is all commercial stuff dude dont download there the driver is to old windows wont install it coz you have a newer driver..

now you want to use driversweeper..??? lol no men!!! waste of time nothing works...


Try this for a change:

Goto control panel nvidia right taskbar green thingie press control panel now window opens..
click on the adjust videocolorsettings on the left 1 above the last 1..

Now you see 2 lines of text on the right side saying

dynamic contrast enchachment
color enchachment.

turn them both of
and make sure you set the tab on limited 16-235

now apply everything

Next step:

Goto to the same control panel now go above at nvidia psychx config and change the auto function to yourvideocardname

Now apply and hope this would help out.
p.s. my videocard didn't fail yet....since that config lol
hope this stays this way

Let me know


thanks

Regarding the driver issues with online video the best fix is to disable hardware acceleration.

Open any random video on a website.
right click on the video and go to settings.
Uncheck the box that says "Enable hardware acceleration".
Click Close and then try watching video and check.

anything is worth a try but why does it do it? Incompatibility thats why, something somewhere does not like Nvidia or vice versa. I'll have a go and Rashids suggestion later on.

My 'shudder' has apparently stopped but still getting driver failure.

From what I have looked in various forums and checked it seems that when the hardware acceleration is turned on for the graphics card there is a [b]fluctuation in the core voltage of the graphics card[/b] because of which the message pops up.
