The Dreaded Kernel Mode

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody. I have had the kernel mode problem when I am playing games. The screen goes black and if it recovers I get the message Display Driver Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version 275.33 stopped responding and has successfully recovered. I have read other postes of people having this problem and nothing really helped them. I built the system my self about a month or two ago and it worked fine untill a few days ago specs are

CPU 2600k sandy
Asus Maximus 4
Ram 8 Corsair Dominator 1600MHz
Windows 7 64 bit
WD Caviar Black 1TB
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 x2 in SLI
Kingwin LAZER 1000w Power Supply Blue LED 80+ Gold

I have rerolled back drivers a few times and reinstalled them. Any other ideas would be really nice.
Thanks

I also went through this and read that unstable ram can cause this. I spent a lot of time testing my OC and even though it would pass 24 hrs of prime95, 10-20 runs of ITB on max setting, 50 passes of Linx and anything else I could throw at it I did finally make a few minor changes to see if it would have an effect. I ended up raising Dram voltage a bit and than lowered CPU/NB voltage. In the end, my OC even with the same freq's just moved the voltage around a small bit seem to have made the difference for me. For a while I was getting the problem almost daily, now I rarely see once a week, actually been good for a couple weeks.

From what I understand /learned about this issue no one is taking the blame, neither MS, Nvidia or ATI. Worst thing is there's really not a single fix for all cases. It's up to you to see which one works for your system. It sucks! I currently have a POS GPU gt220 and am about to take the plunge on a higher quality GPU and than re-image and just keep my fingers crossed as I've read many others with the same card have this issue.

And for the record this was after trying all the popular fixes like uninstall/reinstall drivers with driversweeper in safe mode blah blah blah.
I'm not the expert in this field, and just thought I'd throw my in.

I'll be watching this thread for some better answers.

Have you checked the Asus site to see if there's an updated BIOS for your board?

If you have any OC's going on (cpu, gpu, ram, etc), remove them for testing purposes (choose 'default' or 'safe' preset in the BIOS, whichever it's called).

Eventually it may turn out you need to bump up voltage slightly on something in your BIOS (cpu, northbridge, memory, etc) but I don't know which to tell you because I've never played w/a Sandy and don't know the mobo architecture that well.
