3 GTX 1080 / 1 GTX 1070 Can't STOP nvlddmkm

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
As the listing states, I have tried 3 GTX 1080s and 1 GTX 1070 all which have caused repeat nvlddmkm issues. The issue is intermittent (once per day if that) but it is still apparent and frustrating.

To recount the situation. I upgraded from a Titan X to 1080 FE (no issues prior to using 10 series cards. FE would nvlddmkm more frequently than any cards I tried.

1. Titan X (no issues whatsoever 1 year)
2. 1080 FE (most common nlddmkm)
3. 1080 Strix (intermittent nlddmkm)
4. 1070 MSI Gaming X (intermittent nlddmkm)
5. 1080 MSI Gaming X (intermittent nlddmkm)

I am no longer replacing cards as it is clearly not the issue.
I have re-installed a fresh copy of Windows EVERY time I upgraded. I have tried multiple driver versions including 368.95 which supposedly helps the latency of these cards. (So don't tell me DDU & try again)

1. I have disabled fast boot in windows
2. I have scanned for drivers that arent working or out of date
3. I have upgraded MOBO bios
4. I have tried "prefer maximum performance" setting in Nvidia control panel
5. So where do I go from here?

NOTE: I can run furmark / heaven for 4 hours / or pretty much any stress test and the issue will NOT present itself. It is truly random and may happen once during a 8 hour Blade and Soul extended gaming session. The most I would expect it are 2 random occurrences within 1 day if I'm doing a lot of gaming - so this leads to to believe it could be more software side since the hardware isn't failing at 100% power etc...
I appreciate any contribution, as this is really stressing me out.

PC HARDWARE SPECS:

X99a Godlike Gaming
5960x (no oc)
Corsair H110i GT
32 GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 (2400mhz XMP)
MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X
Intel NVME PCI-e 400GB
WD Black 2TB HDD
Corsair AX 1200i

bump, anyone, would really appreciate the help

I'm sorry, I'm just a little confused. Are you receiving a BSOD that is caused by driver "nvlddmkm"?
post #4 of 11
I am having the same problem with my new EVGA GTX 1080 FTW. I get occasional system crashes and "who crashed" mentions the nvlddmkm every time, indicating it's an nVidia driver issue. I've tried using a few different drivers, including the latest beta hotfix.

Strange thing is, it's only crashed in one game I've played, Guild Wars 2, which is an online MMO. I'm curious if being an online game has anything to do with it and the issue with video streaming or whatever it is. I've benchmarked my system multiple times with Resident Evil 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Firestrike...never a problem. I've played GW2 quite a bit, some Fallout New Vegas. Dabbled in The Witcher 3 with ultra settings (worked great, but short play time), and never an issue.

I'll also add, Precision X refuses to go into K boost without sending my PC into a reboot. Rarely it will work, but usually it does not. I gather that it is due to too long a time being elapsed for the display to reset, causing the error. Related? I haven't a clue. I'm tempted to RMA this thing, but I don't know if there will be a fix, or is Pascal is having growing pains...

This system crash will happen very rarely, or repeatedly within 10 minute reboots. I'll play some other games and see what it does.

Thanks for any assistance.

As I posted last, I noticed my Precision X display shooting to 1999 MHz and hanging there for a several seconds. Task manager showed WinSAT.exe running for some reason, then WinSAT stopped. I disabled it, but have noticed the GPU clock is still shooting up and down very erratically...1700 MHz and then down...up and down...this is at idle with nothing running except internet explorer as far as I can tell.

This is truly interesting, because I notice my issues mainly arise during Blade & Soul - another NC SOFT MMO. I think it might have something to do with pore optimization with windows relay latency and in game development. Not a lot of players have these cards yet so I think it may be a waiting game. After trying 4 separate cards I cant blame them any more, and it seems to be driver or application side at this point.

kboost w. precision xoc 6.0.4 works fine here, same gpu. It only requires reboot if I put the evga skin on msiab and 'hack' to use kboost.

So you can use K boost on Non-EVGA card how ??

Since you ruled out the OS and GPU possibility, I can suggest the following:

(0. Try disabling the XMP profile just in case...)
1. Try another PSU
2. If the above doesn't help, try another motherboard if available
