NVIDIA Display Driver Causing BSOD waking from sleep (dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys, watchdog.sys, nvlddmkm.sys)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Community!

Having some big issues with NVIDIA Display Drivers. My computer BSODs when I try to wake from sleep after extended periods. The following files are the culprit:

dxgkrnl.sys
dxgmms1.sys
nvlddmkm.sys
watchdog.sys

I'm using the latest drivers 331.65, the problem exists on any driver I use except 314.22.

I'm using a custom size page file, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. It's pointing to Direct X and NVIDIA as the culprits. I've performed clean installs, but the problem still exists. Sometimes watchdog.sys, may or may not be included as part of the problem.

Here is a screenshot from Blue Screen View Software:

Any thoughts?

You've got 3 different types of BSOD codes, 2 of them imply GPU drivers and the other I believe RAM.

Are you OC'ed at all? If you're running Win7 then do: SFC /SCANNOW but if you're running Win8/8.1 then do: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth (you can also run that SFC /SCANNOW with Win8 of course).

Those should find any possible OS problems and "hopefully" fix them. You can also run DXDIAG but I've got no idea if that helps you, it appears to show if all is ok etc.

You can then reinstall the drivers after running the below which will remove everything:

Last but not least, you're not listing your computer specifics. Any chance you're running Haswell with C6/C7 states enabled and an old PSU that cannot support them?

Thanks for your reply.

Here are my full computer specs:

GTX 670 FTW SLI Video Cards (not OC)
Intel Core i5-3570K CPU at 3.4GHz (not OC)
16GB RAM (I set video ram availability in BIOS to Auto, so Windows is only reporting 15.89GB Usable)
Resolution: 2560x1440 DVI cable
NVIDIA Driver version: 331.65
OS: Win 7 x64
PSU: Corsair 850W HX850

As I mentioned in my post, this problem does not exist when I use 314.22, and did not exist with drivers prior, I don't know if NVIDIA broke something but now I cannot wake successfully from sleep. I've used Driver Fusion to do full uninstallations of Drivers in Safe mode, etc.

It doesn't make a difference. I've also done SFC /SCANNOW to no Avail.

Which of those BSOD messages is due to Memory? What about the Direct X Kernel, one?

Thank you.

The 7e may have been related to RAM. The 116s are TDR. The 113 I think is for DX.

Nvidia did change "something" I think starting near 320.x. The drivers behave differently with 314.22 compared to anything beyond. Your system looks fine to me, do you have this problem if you disable SLI and then try waking from sleep? Do you see any errors in the eventlog when you try and shutdown/start or waking it?

Sorry I don't have anymore ideas, can't see a problem standing out.
