ASUS NVIDIA GTX 550 TI BSOD in nvlddmkm.sys

System is as follows:

MSI 880GM-E43 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
2 PNY Optima 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (8GB total)
Corsair 500W PSU
ASUS ENGTX550 Ti/DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 1GB
1 case fan
Running Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I've loaded the drivers that came with the video card, removed them, grabbed the latest from NVIDIA's site, loaded them, removed them, and finally tried the oldest stable driver from NVIDIA. All of which net me a BSOD in nvlddmkm.sys with an error code of 116. When I say that I removed them, I used DriverSweep to do so. I could boot into safe mode with networking to get the drivers, but at some point, I've given up. I'm thinking RMA the card and hope that it's the problem, but using some of the old drivers allowed me to boot to a black screen and log in at least. Wasn't able to do anything from there other than shut down though.

Has anyone had the same setup and had it work? What am I missing? Any help is appreciated!

  1. If possible, it'd be great if you could test the card in another computer. Also, I'd suggest giving memtest86+ a spin or three on your computer.
