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.

Error Code 43 - Nvidia Geforce 9800 Gt

Code 43 error + red squiggly horizontal lines on my screen. Red vertical lines on "starting windows" screen i installed a new hard drive on my computer several months ago and have had no problems with it. I also installed windows 7 at the same time. Again, no problems until today. When i booted up my computer, there were numerous bold vertical red lines on the "starting windows" screen. Then, when my desktop appeared, there were fine wavy/squiggly horizontal red lines all across the screen. Plus, the font and icon size were really large all of a sudden.

I was able to change the font size and icon size back to normal. Nothing seems different about how my computer performs, but the desktop has these weird squiggly red lines, and some of the pictures when i browse the web have the same lines. What is causing these red lines all of a sudden? I did notice that i get an "code 43" error message (windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. ) Concerning my nvidia geforce 9800gt when i looked it up in device manager. So i tried to download the most current driver from nvidia (for win 7 64-bit).

It didn't help and my computer still will not recognize/use this device. I tried re-booting numerous times. What does one do in this situation? The only thing i did differently today than any other day is watch a short video online from a secure website. That's it!

Nvidia Video Card - Display Driver Has Stopped Responding

Do you have any fixes for the "display driver has stopped responding" with nvidia video cards? Common problem with no fix. I have the newest drivers are installed. Have had this issue with 3 win oses. It's really annoying as it doesn't crash the system. I've had it with xp, vista and win 7.

Nvidia 6150se Nforce 430 Video Card Driver Issue

I have a hp pavilion desktop a6123w. It originally came with vista home premium. I purchased and updated to win-7 home premium. I keep having problems with high cpu usage and the video card driver can't be updated. I have a nvidia 6150se nforce 430. I've tried going to hps site to get drivers but they won't offer anything for win-7. When i emailed them they said since i purchased my on upgrade to win-7 instead of buying the upgrade from them that i was on my on. I tried going to nvidias site and have tried several of there driver downloads and they keep saying not compatible.

I think i understand that the video card is built into the motherboard of this pc. I have tried getting updated bios for the board or chipset and have had the same negative results. I have re installed win-7 several times. Each time i have to go through a nightmare of problems with my printer scanner fax software. Have also had issues with media player after re installs. I installed the same win-7 on my toshiba laptop and the only function i lost was the built in webcam.

I've tried fixit but no real help. Windows update has not helped with the driver. Device manager says "can not initialize the device for this hardware(code 37)". It says the device is not using any resources because it has a problem. I am totally confused as to what to try next. Windows defender and security essentials scans do not show any problems with viruses or malware.

It seems as though when i reinstall win-7 everything works better for a short time and then the problems slowly start increasing. I originally had norton symantec 360, but didn't reinstall it after the second re install of win-7. I would appreciate any advice that you may be able to give me. I think that i may be able to install a plug in video card and need to know what steps to take to do that as far as conflicts with the mother board and drivers.

Nvidia Geforce 8600 Gs Lockup / Crashes

I have a problem with my graphic card with is as far as i know a common problem to the nvidia 800 series and again as far as i know the problem is caused by a building mistake when constructing the graphic card but i might be wrong.

My problem ac cures like this i'm playing a very light game world of warcraft (patched). When after 1 minute - 6 hours. My graphic card lockups/crashes, meaning that the hole screen stop's reacting and gives strange squared colors. Where the sound that i was listening to keeps repeating. If i wait while the crash/lockup is going on it will give strange different colored strings on my screen after a reboot. It's impossible to actually stop the crash ive tried multiply thing measuring temperatures measuring how much electricity it gets ive even tried lowering down the graphic details in wow(world of warcraft)

Neither of the things helped, it seemed after moving from windows vista home basic 32bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit that the crashes had stopped  but after close to 1 month the crashed keep coming back and it got worse.

I'm what i would refer to a "advanced user". And believe me ive tried everything to fix the problem.
Ive even sent my computer to repair but they couldn't fix it they claimed my graphic card had a building mistake correct me if i'm wrong but these problems accrue for many nvidia 8600 users?

Heres some details that you guys might find helpful to solve this problem.

I have a stationary computer
With windows7 ultimate 64bit
I have 2 500gb hard drives.
And 2 gb of ram.
And i have a nvidia geforce 8600 gs

Youtube Video Crashes

Youtube video crashes in windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, using flash player 9 or 10, videos play in chrome just fine. I have 1gb ati 5770 vapor video card, intel system board, i5, 4 gb ram. I have tried both windows 7 64 and 32 bit to no avail. The screen flickers and system reboots.

Video crashes in ie 8 and firefox. They work fine in chrome. I am think of installing vista 32 bit. I wish there was a solution. I have installed whql video drivers. If i disable hardware acceleration in flash. It is more stable, but video quality suffers. Windows is sending the memory dumps, but no solution is available.

Xfx Nvidia Geforce 6200 256mb Crashes

I'm having some issues with the xfx nvidia geforce 6200 256mb graphics card while running windows 7 in it. The computer seems to crash after a while or when trying to play a video file. There's no error message, it just crashes. The first symptom is a low performance in the mouse response, cursor moves too slow across the screen. Then the screen flashes a couple of times and then remains with stripes and dots all over it. Finally the screen turns black. Sometimes, if the
Crash is no too severe, my desktop refreshes and a pop-up message says: driver nvidia geforce 197. Has stopped working.

I checked, microsoft website and it says the nvidia geforce 6200 256mb is fully compatible with windows 7. I also tryed different drivers, clean driver installation and even the manufacturer of the card couldn't give me a solution to my problem.

My specs are:
Amd sempron 2600+ mhz
1gb ram ddr400
Sata hard drive 180gb
Nvidia geforce 6200 256mb
Pc-chips a31g v1. 0 motherboard
(I've updated the system bios, all other devices' drivers are updated as well)

Video Card (nvidia) Problem

A friend's system runs dual-boot (xp and win7).initially with on-board video chip but this was very slow in graphics, so a video card (nvidia geforce 8000 series) was bought. Under win7 the system hangs after some time (even if not being used), but not under xp. So, back to the shop, replaced the video-card with a geforce gt220. Same problem: system hang after some time, but no problems under xp. We have replaced the driver with newer and older versions, but no difference.

Nvidia Geforce 8400gt Video Drivers Will Not Install

Video drivers will not install after successful clean upgrade/install of 7 home premium 64 bit on a vaio notebook that was running 32 bit vista. I have an nvidia geforce 8400gt card that isn't being recognized by the new 64 bit os. The video card isn't listed in the device manager, only the standard vga graphics adapter is listed.

When i attempt to install drivers found on nvidia's website, the installation wizard aborts with the message "the nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware?" Any tips for getting my pc to even recognize that this video card is installed?

Nvidia 7950 Gt Video Card Drivers Issue

I'm trying to install video card drivers on windows 7. When i first installed windows 7 and installed nvidia drivers everything was working fine for about a week. Now i can not get windows 7 to boot with video drivers installed and display my desktop. As soon as it gets passed the windows 7 boot logo my flat panel says no signal and turns off.

I boot into safe mode and uninstall the nvidia drivers and windows will boot just fine, but i have no video drivers installed. When i go into safe mode with that problem and i have windows troubleshoot it, it says that my video card drivers are up to date, but does not support wddm.

I have tried almost everything i can think of different brands of drivers and i don't know how many different versions but they all end up with the same problem. I'm running the nvidia 7950 gt video card with a asus p5b motherboard with the latest video card drivers on windows 7 operating system.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.

Driver Crashes Flight Simulator X

Vista driver "uiautomationcore.dll" crashes flight simulator x. I get this problem whenever i run fsx, if, i am in a second or third flight, and if i use the mouse to right-click a menu around 18 times. I've tried replacing the dll with the windows 7 version and done tons of other things mentioned on avsim, but i can't get it to stop crashing. Vista's report-problem solution only tells me that i need to run windows update, since it's a system driver, but there's obviously nothing to update.

I'm running fsx sp2 (crashed with sp1 and stock also) and vista sp1. I am at a loss as to why this is happening to me since all the other people. I've found that have had this problem have had it only because they were running the beta of windows 7, and were able to fix it by getting the dll from vista and putting into their windows 7 installation.

I am running windows vista, and as such i can't downgrade to windows vista. I did try upgrading to the windows 7 version of the file, and then it still didn't stop the crashes. One person did recommend downgrading to the 32-bit version of the file since fsx is a 32-bit program, but it didn't fix it.

On a side note, i'm really surprised it would happen to this game since it was made by the same company that made my whole operating system. This does not happen in any other games, and they're 32-bit also.

Ati Driver Conflict - Display Crashes

I have an on going issue with my new system. At first i thought it was video/hardware related, but now i am leaning towards it being a conflict with windows. However, i have no way of tracking it down.

The issue: my screen will randomly die when running aero intensive applications, games, etc. Everything will run fine for a given amount of time (any where from seconds to an hour), but then the screen will clicker and the display will go out. On the screen i see a series of vertical white bars with a colors background. It does not appear to lock the computer up, as i still hear sound going in the background for a time; the computer will eventually reboot if i leave it alone long enough.

This is all running on a fresh install of windows 7 64x, upgraded from vista business 64. The temperatures on the card all read as normal, and there are no errors showing up in the event viewer after i reboot; outside of the 'unexpected shutdown' critical error.

When this first started happening i contacted xfx support for the video card. They had me uninstall the ati drivers, run driver sweeper, and reinstall the drivers. This seemed to fix the issue until tuesday, when windows update installed kb977074 - an update totally unrelated to video - and then the errors started happening again.

After a fit with system restore, i decided to format the drive and start over. Upon getting back in to windows 7 64x, i started installing programs one by one, checking after each install to see if i could create the error again. Everything was fine until i reached a program that installed the visual basic c+ 2005 redistributable package (x86). Once the error started to occur after this, i uninstalled the programs and did a system restore prior to the package installing.

The computer already had the c+ 2008 (x64) package installed, and worked fine once the 32-bit 2005 package was removed. However, most programs i want to use, and most games for that matter, require the 2005 package to be installed. So i re-installed it, and removed the 2008 package; thinking it was a conflict between the two (/straws), but that did nothing. The errors returned, and i an now back at square one, hiding on the last stable restore point of the system.

I am not sure if i am still dealing with a driver conflict, hardware issues or if the c+ packages are some how messing up my system. I am not putting much faith in the latter, because i do not believe the first scan with driver sweeper would of been so successful, only to be taken down later by a totally unrelated windows update file.

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:

A problem with your video hardware caused windows to stop working correctly.

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 9800gt Driver Problems

I am currently running nvidia 9800 gtx+. My board is intel dg33fb and the manufacturer is dell i guess. The problem which i am facing is that my display goes black after the booting screen of windows 7. I have the latest driver and softwares, however this problem does not happen when i boot into safe mode. When i disable the nvidia 9800gtx+ graphic adapter from device manager, it then boots normally. Also i have noticed that sometimes the fan speed of pc increases when i boot up, it is then only the display goes to onboard vga. When i turn of the power and turn on the fan speed is normal but it has the problem i mentioned earlier.

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 Driver Update For Graphics Card

Today i had something weird happen to my windows 7 pro system. I went and updated my nvidia drivers to the new ones that came out today. I removed the old ones and installed new ones. When i went to restart after the start screen came up i got a message telling me that my windows 7 did not pass the genuine advantage. I had to download an activation fix from microsoft. I didn't have to re-enter my product key. Now this was only an update to my graphics card. What gives?. Why did this happen. Even ms security essentials gave me a warning until i applied the activation update.

Crashes And Debugging - Bsod Ntoskrnl.exe And Driver Power State Failure

I have recently installed a ssd into my laptop and re-installed everything. I also switch the sata mode to ahci to improve the performance.

Then i scan for hardware changes, and the finding window keep doing forever. So i try to shutdown and it fails to do so, after about 30 min it says bsod with driver_power_state_failure. This does not occur instantly when starting windows, only after a period of using. I have attached the sf diagnostic data.

Nvidia 8400 Gs Display Driver Freezes With Bsod

I have a hp m9040n pavilion elite desktop. I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit about 6 months ago. It has been working fine, but last couple of weeks my pc keeps freezing with the display driver crashing. Either the last windows update or adobe flash player might have caused it? I tried various versions of nvidia windows 7 display driver with no success. Any suggestions?
