Vista- Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered

Hey Guys,

Recently I have recovered windows vista to original factory settings and from then

onwards i am getting "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered"

message and then automatically shifts to Safe Mode and returns to normal mode and after

5 to 10 minutes getting blue screen physical memory dump related to display drivers.


The above scenario is happening even if I have latest updates.


Any help would be appreciated

You have nvidia video card and the software for it. In normal mode go to nvidia site -select your model number and download the latest drivers.

Better use this option to automatically detect driver. Open this website in internet explorer.

Go to device manager and check under display. How many display adapter do you have.

Also i think the WDDM certified drivers only might work in your computer.

I can login in safe mode, Can we unstall drivers in safe mode?  If yes what should be the next course of action.Could you please explain in detail

ded9Commented:
boot the computer in vga instead of safe mode.

1. Download

http://www.ursoftware.com/dlds/public/yusetup2010.exe

2. Select pro option.

3. Uninstall nvidia software.

4. It will go through 3 stages. Make sure you complete those steps.

5. Restart the computer

All traces of nvidia will be removed and install the latest nvidia drivers.

I will search it for you...but perform these steps.
