nvlddmkm.sys BSOD, Crashes
Hello,

In the past week I've been plagued by random BSODs and my system randomly restarting itself. I've built this computer myself months ago, and everything was running smoothly until about last week.

I have not added any new hardware to my system, and even went as far as formatting everything and re installing and updating my drivers to the latest versions. Yet despite all that, the random restarts and freezes do not stop.


It would also seem that this problem has existed for well [b]over a year[/b] and yet there isn't a solution for this. What the hell nVidia? I bought this card because I've never had any problems with your cards before, but after coming across this (and spending about 300$ on this card) I don't know about buying anything else from you.

With that being said, here are my specs.

My specs:

Intel i7 2600k 3.4 ghz

8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 686MHz (7-7-7-21)

ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8P67 DELUXE (LGA1155)

G215HV (1920x1080@60Hz)
1024MB GeForce GTX 460 (EVGA) 37 °C
1024MB GeForce GTX 460 (EVGA) 42 °C
ForceWare version 295.73
SLI Enabled

488GB Western Digital WDC WD5002AALX-00J37A0 (SATA)

DTSOFT Virtual CdRom Device
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS70

I've ran the Windows debugger tool on the .dmp file and got this:

VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800cf604e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff880100ccaa4, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: ffffffffc000009a, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.

At this point I am considering installing this card on my other computer, but I don't know if its PSU will handle it. I suppose my other option could be to install a different card on this PC and test that?

I have the same BSOD since i have installed the last nvidia driver : 295.73, i dont know what to do.

I will probably format my computer... but too much work man...

Sh.t. This is the third version with this BSOD problem. The last good driver for me was 275.33, since then I have black screens only, so I rolled back the driver to v. 275.33. That's works well even if it is outdated. I don't understand these programmers, for why a lot of needless tinkering in the drivers if they don't work properly? /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />

I had to format my computer and to install 280 version.

Now im only having TDR, better than BSOD.

It's really a shame.

I've got the same problem too. How can we fix that ?
