NVIDIA Kernel Mode Driver Error! HELP!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
During the last few days when playing games I have been getting random screen freezes, then a flash and back to normal. I couldn't figure out what was going on, then it did it when I wasn't in a game and I saw the popup error box as shown in the picture!! Can anyone advise me on what I need to do? my system build is in my signature! Thanks.

Is your GPU overclocked? When the driver "stops responding" like that, it's usually the sign of an unstable overclock. It may also be overheating.

280.26 is the problem.

As soon as I installed that driver I crashed every 10 minutes. No overclocking or anything. There's a lot of people having problems with that driver, especially 400-series and single card users.

Revert to an older driver. I'm using 275.33 and no problems what-so-ever.

EDIT:
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia-drivers-overclocking-software/1099724-nvidia-best-ever-driver-100-stable.html

That thread starts off praising the 280.26 driver but quickly turns against it.

Browse the DRIVERS Forum to find out more info.

The card is water cooled and I've never seen it get above 31°C not overclocked...

rolling back driver now...

I initially had problems with the 280.26 beta myself. It wasn't until I followed this guide to the "t" that I was able to get everything stable:

I have since moved on to 285.27 and things have been running very smoothly. Give it a try and see if that makes a difference. thumb.gif

So... I've been fighting this. I've done driver after driver uninstalls and reinstalls. I've gone through the guide to the T and even did a fresh install of windows... I'm now running 275.33 and still having the issues... What else can it be?

Bad card, corrupt drivers (other than nvidia's). I'm having the same problem, for the last 5 weeks now I've been trying to figure it out.

This is my next step when I get around to it, eVGA Driver "Fix". It doesn't always work, but it's something to look at and try.

It pretty much just removes the nVidia sound drivers which may cause confliction and crash your system.

I reset my BIOS to default settings (no more OC frown.gif and turned down the speed of my fans... If it doesn't keep doing it I'll turn my fans up again... I'm thinking they may be taxing the rail of my PSU... somehow. I'll have to look into it further... I hope that the problem though so I can get my OC back and just change plugs on the fans..

I'll let you know.

Try testing one stick of RAM at a time. Create a boot disk from this site:

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Run Memtest86+ and see if there are any errors.
