I've been scouring the internet for different fixes and I have yet to fix my problem. Earlier this week I discovered that the file nvlddmkm.sys bsod'd my computer, so i went to reinstall the last nvidia driver, 306.97, but it wouldn't install. I tried previous versions as well and they do not work. I had to do a system restore to get my drivers back but now 310.70 came out and I tried again but it still will not install the driver and I've done uninstalls, driver sweeper/ driver fusion, ccleaner, safe mode installs, combofix, spybot s&d, malwarebytes, and esnet online scanner to try and remedy this. I also am installing using a clean installation.
I do not have system restore points that go back far enough, I talked to Nvidia's live chat and they said its a hardware issue even though the card is 3 months old . The card worked perfectly before but new drivers increase stability and performance and only the drivers fail, the card was perfect.
