Since moving from a 4870, every day or so i get a bsod. I updated drivers today and since then ive already had 2 nvidia related bsods. Before the driver update, the bsods were ntoskrnl.exe or ntfs related (although some were caused by a bad oc, sometimes it happened on a good oc) .

Here is my last one i just had:


A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nvlddmkm.sys


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000003d (0xfffff88002f1ad00, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000,

*** nvlddmkm.sys - Address 0xfffff880103b6ad4 base at 0xfffff8800fef3000 DateStamp

I was stressing an oc earlyer and i got a bsod related to that nvlddmkm.sys file. I also got it when just browsing the internet. It never did this on the old card, and i never had any ati driver issues (other than 10.12 which was pants) and both the nvidia drivers ive used do this.

Could it be something to do with my chipset or is it just crappy buggy drivers?

I'd remove the driver, use ccleaner to remove all garbage stuff, reboot the rig and re-install the latest driver available on nVidia's web page.
