For almost a year on a Dell 8930 W10Pro Navidia GeForce GTX 1060 I've been getting periodic blackouts for few seconds. I cannot reproduce the error "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." I often get it in word2016 but also when there is just Outlook and Firefox running.
I have tried just about every suggestion offered in the forums: 1. DDM'd all Nvidia software, rebooted in safeM, pulled the latest driver off the Dell site, have internet unconnected, reinstalled. Did this at least three time in the last six months. Tried all these other suggestions https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/game-ready-drivers/13/179540/display-driver-nvlddmkm-stopped-responding-and-has/1304012/
, save the registry change and change monitor refresh.
I've seen nothing new since 2017 posts. There does not appear to be a "fix" at either Dell or Nvidia. Dell tech support plays the same song over and over: change the driver, change the driver....
The problem seems widespread enough but there appears to be no answer.
