Error - Display Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Stopped Responding

When playing games, receive error "display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver stopped responding" in windows 7. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver, version 197. 45 stopped responding and has successfully recovered. *I've been getting this error prettymuch ever since i built (with a friend's help) my computer. Basically, playing most games will sometimes cause either:"snow" or rectangular boxes covered the screen.

At this point it usually gives the above error, game freezes, screen flashes a few times, and then starts working with the snow, or crashes my computer. Or goes straight to the blue screen of death. This happens completely randomly, sometimes it'll do it on startup of my games, sometimes not for hours, and sometimes not at all. I play wow (built this computer so i could run at max graphics, yeah right) tf2 and a few others. Tried allods today, won't even work at the lowest settings. What a joke.

Windows vista 64 biti've also dual-booted linux, but since i still don't know my way around it, and since it can't play most games i want i don't really use it. I've also checked my temps, with even my most "***" gaming it never goes above 60 degrees. I've tested the ram and it checks out, but can't stress test my computer, it just goes straight to crashing. I've tried every fix i could find, i asked nvidia for help (and got the default "must be your computer" answer) and i can't seem to fix it. My biggest fear is either my power supply or card is faulty. I don't have my warranty for either and really don't want to buy a new one. This computer isn't even a year old.

Display Driver Nvidia Windows Kernel 185.95 Stopped Responding

This is the message i get: display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver, version 185. 95 stopped responding and has successfully recovered. This has happened a few times now! It has recovered each time so far, but keeps slipping back into failing. There must be a way to fix it?

When it fails, all the fonts and text are blurry and fuzzy making it very difficult to work. I have recently upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 from vista home premium 64 with no trouble.

My machine is very, very new, this should not be happening and there must be a way to fix it permanently! Without dell support telling me they want to charge me nearly £70 because its a software issue which isn't covered by my warranty. They just want to squeeze more money out of me.

Please help me! If its a case of downloading new drivers, which ones do i need, where do i look to get them, and how do i use them once i've found them . e.g . Where do i put them etc! Im not too technically minded unfortunately.

Error - The Kernel Mode Driver Does Not Seem To Be Running

"the kerner mode driver does not seem to be running. A device driver is required for communication with your video hardware" error prevents me from controlling my video card! I've recently upgraded from 32-bit windows xp (it was the king of all!) To 64-bit windows 7. A nice os it is, but there is something that annoys me. I can't overclock my damn video card! (Which is essential for gaming and working on my other programs, like 3d and stuff).

I've tried msi afterburner, amd gpu clock tool, riva tuner, ati tray tools, atitool, etc. And none of them can change the clock values of my card. Most of the programs would just get back to the default values instantly, without any warning or error, and some of them won't even install correctly.

The only atitool actually gives me a some sort of an error every time i start it, which looks like this: "the kerner mode driver does not seem to be running. A device driver is required for communication with your video hardware"

I don't know what the f is happening (everything was 100% fine on windows xp) and it's really annoying. I've tried searching the net for a solution, but all i could find is lots of other people whining about the same error on their pcs (running windows 7, vista and sometimes even xp), no solution.

I assume windows 7 blocks whatever features seem "evil" to it, but why would it? Why on earth would it block overclocking? If i fry my gpu (and i won't, since i know all the stable clock values and i keep track of the temperature) - it's my business. So if anyone here knows how to fix this, please tell me and be my god for the rest of eternity!

I'm running on:
- Asus f3ka laptop
- Windows 7 64-bit
- The video card is ati mobility radeon hd 2600

All the windows updates are currently installed, i check daily. The device (video card) itself is not malfunctioning, games run ok, 3d stuff is also good, no artifacts. It's just that i can't overclock my card (which, as i've mentioned before, is vital for me).

I reviewed this forum for similar issues and as advised to other users i uninstalled and then installed the drivers, but the problem persists.

Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 Display Driver Problem

About a month ago i decided to upgrade my computers from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium. On my desktop i decided to do a upgrade which worked out pretty good, no problems, however, on my laptop i decided to do the fresh install. Everything went great until a few days ago, when windows update upgraded the video driver (nvidia geforce go 6150), i started to have trouble.

I first noticed that when i would move a window the background image would change to white, then i noticed that in my browser firefox i couldn't change themes, every theme would not work, it would still revert to the default theme. My ms money program's iu which is blue is now white and doesn't display anything but black fonts and white backgrounds.

For the last few days i have been searching for a solution. I found a new driver for my video chip (8. 15. 11. 8610) dated 6/03/2009. It has improved the situation some, just barely, but, i need a better solution. My hardware is as follows: hp pavilion dv9000z cto notebook pc, amd turion(tm) 64 x2 mobile technology tl-56, 2 gb of ram.

No Aero - Unable To Update Nvidia Display Driver

Windows 7 64 bit will not let me update the driver for my n vidia geoforce 9500 gt display adapter. When i try using windows update it repeatedly informs me an important update is available but when i try to install it i get the error message code 800f020b unknown error encountered. When i try rebooting the system it again fails to install the update despite trying. Using the change driver option in device manager similarly fails even when i point it to the correct driver which includes wdms support.consequently i can't use aero although when i originally installed windows 7 it was working correctly with aero.

Unfortunately i messed up by going to the n vidia site and downloading what claimed to be the latest driver! Please can some kind soul help me gat aero back. At the moment device manager fails to describe any display adapter although previously it was showing an unknown device which was working correctly! Needless to say i do have a display otherwise i couldn't be writing this!

Nvidia Kernal Display Driver Stopped Responding And Has Recovered

When i purchased the laptop, it came with windows vista premium 64 bit preinstalled. But the problem is, whenever i open windows media player, there is an error message which says display nvidia windows kernal driver version 186. 52 has stopped responding and has successfully recovered. Then, when i did a clean reinstall of windows 7 premium 64 bit on november 2009, the same problem appeared. I had no choice but to use vlc media player to watch dvds. Thus, i ignored this problem for the time being because whenever i played games like football manager 2010 or sims 3, the problem did not appear.

But the last straw came when i updated my adobe flash to version 10. 1 and tried to watch youtube videos. The videos will play for about 10 seconds and then suddenly, the video will stop, turn green and the same message with regards to the display driver pops out. To solve this issue, i had to untick enable hardware acceleration on the settings of the flash player by right clicking the video. This problem did not arise when i used an older version of flash which was 10. 0.

I tried to update, reinstall my video drivers but it seems that this mobile driver version is the latest and also reinstalling the drivers did not solve these issues. Now i get the error message that kerel mode driver 257. 21 (the latest driver) has stopped responding and has successfully recovered. Well i still get the error message when i play dvds using windows media player. How do i solve this issue? Despite updating my graphics card, windows media player shows the same error message as the youtube videos when i enable acceleration for youtube videos. This problem has been with me since i bought this laptop how do i solve this issue? I am a newbie by the way.

Problem With Display Driver Mode

So i have windows 7 in my computer, and i can't just use the aero features (including the theme), because it says that my video card driver is not wddm memory: 128mb

Should i install one another driver? If so, which one? If i try to update, it says that i'm using the latest version of the driver and it's up to date. But it says that i can't use aero because of my wddm incompatibility. What should i do? I am really tired and bored with the basic theme (light blue).

Guys, i think that there must be a solution because the windows doesn't say i can't use aero. Here's a screen-shot of what it said (in the thumbnail at the end):

"The current video card may support aero with a driver that is compliant with the windows display driver model (wddm).contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a wddm-compatible driver".

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7†home 64 bit†a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers†not wait for the consumer to purchase†windows 7†and have to deal with all the problems!

Nvidia Driver Has Recovered From A Serious Error

I've been having a problem since installing windows 7, that while playing games my screen will flash black then turn normal again and i'll get a pop-up saying "nvidia driver has recovered from a serious error" or something similar. This usually happens only once a day after a 1-2 hours of playing. Ive installed the latest nvidia driver today and instead my fps dropped very low for about a minute and then the screen went black and then returned to normal. This is what the action center says:

Nvidia Driver Crashing Windows

I have a hp dv9000 laptop with nvidia geforce 8600m graphics card. After i installed windows 7 on it, i tried to update it with the latest†driver from nvidia website. As†soon as the installation is completed, it prompts for a restart and the windows†crashes upon restart. I have tried this numerous times and it is consistent every single time. The only option i have is to restore it back†and then use the†standard vga graphics adapter. Unfortunately, this means that i cannot use it for any games or any of the advanced features. Even at a minimum, i cannot even change the brightness of the screen.

Any help is appreciated, even how to increase the brightness will help. I have already tried fn+f8 and all other hotkey combinations.

Nvidia Quadro Fx 330 Driver

My company develops cad applications. I have to check w7 compatibility with all of our products.

My test machine specs:
Cpu: p4 3. 0 ghz ht
Ram: 2. 5 gb ddr2 533 mhz
Vga: nvidia quadro fx 300

I know that quadro fx 330 is not one of win7 compatible video cards by it supports dx9 an sm 2. 0
Windows update downloads fx 330 drivers automatically, but they are too old as for me (august 2006). I get lots of artifacts even on desktop with classic theme and continuous blue screens and errors with aero interface which is supported by this graph. Adapter. Can you update quadro series drivers since they are commonly used by our customers (in small business).

Nvidia Graphics Driver Stops Working

My action center is consistently telling me to address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. It has stopped working multiple times. Usually it recovers, but it has occasionally forced a shut down, and once or twice i've gotten a blue screen. I've tried to "address" the problem through the action center, and it always tells me the solution can't be downloaded and i should check to make sure my computer is connected to the internet. It's always connected. I've downloaded other solutions but this one always returns the same problem.

I've got an hp 87340w with a docking station and extra monitor - so it is set up for a dual display when on the docking station. I think the problem most often occurs when resuming from a period of inactivity - so the display turns off to save power. I've also gotten it when switching from laptop to dual display (that is, when i put the laptop back on the docking station). I used to get problems when the video was running, so i always make sure i'm not using video when i switch.

I've reinstalled the graphics driver, and even reinstalled windows. I'm not really sure what to do since i don't even know what the problem is and windows gives me no options after it fails to download the solution.

Nvidia Geforce 7500 Le Driver Issue

Have an hp pavilion desktop (few years old), with an nvidia chipset, geforce 7500 le version. I've had windows 7 ultimate installed for a few months, with no display problems. On 12/27 windows update presented me with an optional update to the driver (listed as microsoft corporation wddm).

Installed, then restarted. No problems for about 10 minutes, then the display went blank and the speakers made a loud buzzing. Restarted the pc, and the start-up screen has a pattern of lines, then a screen with zeroes where the lines were, then an error screen, and the pc reboots again, and i then have to start in safe mode.

Went to the nvidia site, and installed an update to series 7 cards listed as 09/27. Same problem. Now windows update is listing a recommended update to the driver. Tired it, but it appears to be the same nvidia septemeber driver, so the problem persists.

Tried restoring to prior to the update. Didn't fix it. Then tried restoring to a previous restore point. On start-up, even worse, as safe mode resulted in a blank screen with the mouse pointer on it. I have to change the driver to a standard vga graphics adapter for me to be able to boot the pc up. Any ideas ? Is the graphics card now useless, or can i correct this ?

Nvidia 9800 Gt Video Driver Crashes

I have downloaded and installed the latest, within the last two weeks, driver and it still crashes at least once or twice a day. I am running win 7 64 bit with 8 gigs of ram and plenty of hard drive space. When my machine reboots and it goes for the windows solution it won't even complete that part saying that i need to be connected to the internet. I am on a wifi constant connection and i leave everything on 24/7/365. I do reboot from time to time when loading software or for other reasons but this is ridiculous. If win 7 was designed by me it would fix these problems not run me around in circles.
