Games crashing nvwgf2um.dll causing the problem?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Every time I run a game the game would just crash and would show "xxx has stopped working". When I check in the event viewer it shows it's the nvwgf2um.dll causing the games to crash. I played BF3 and FC3 mostly and it show the same for both games.

Faulting application name: bf3.exe, version: 1.5.0.0, time stamp: 0x50c39964
Faulting module name: nvwgf2um.dll, version: 9.18.13.697, time stamp: 0x506b3163
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x003bdda3
Faulting process id: 0x191c
Faulting application start time: 0x01cdebcba31a74fc
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\bf3.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\nvwgf2um.dll
Report Id: 4a1bf389-57bf-11e2-a39d-10bf487b394f

I have tried install the new driver (310.70 & 310.90) and even roll back the graphics card driver to older version (306.97) but didn't work.
The gpu is at stock settings. I also googled and tried many ways suggested by others who have the same issue but so far nothing changes.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I could be having the exact same problem, because after a certain amount of time I play a game, I would get the same error message. This has happened while playing Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3.

Have you tried to update the gpu driver? I updated the nvidia driver to 314.07 and haven't experience any crash during games (BF3 & Crysis 3).
And make sure you follow the guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/1150443/how-to-remove-your-nvidia-gpu-drivers
