This can happen randomly and sometimes not at all, sometimes the computer has to recover from a display failure but rarely, afterwards in the event viewer I get this message.
The description for Event ID 14 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found.

I've been running this system for the past three years without issue.
I decided to refresh the whole setup and reinstalled everything, which meant I updated my Geforce drivers to 327.23 and I believe this is the source of the problem as I went through other drivers, updating and replacing but no success. I searched and someone mentioned turning off a Nvidia service (something to do with Shield) and my computer no longer perma-froze nor reported a BSOD but the mouse would still hang and then recover every other minute.
That was a step forward.
I'm now trying the newest Geforce drivers which are still in beta, if it doesn't correct the issue, I'll try to downgrade the drivers and will report back.

I have already tried the new beta drivers and everything seemed to be fine for a day but i have just had the Event Id 41 nvlddmkm error again. :(
Downgrading to 314.22 after posting this. Not impressed with the waste of time trying to find the problem.
It did the same to me - All seemed great using the newest beta drivers and then my mouse was acting up again eventually locking up the system forcing me to reset. I never actually see a BSOD, but the system records one along with the nvlddmkm error event. But I'm also looking into why my mouse would intermittently freeze because each time it did, the system recorded a service initiation. Unsure if anything is connected.
I've since downgraded to Geforce drivers 314.22 as well and have yet to experience this issue. I wonder if they are developing these primarily for Win8 and maybe something is not agreeing on Win7.
