nvlddmkm.sys error

Hi, guys

Need your guys expertise on this one.

I recently switched out my ATI 5750 graphics card, and put in my Evga Geforce 9800 gt. So I could get more performance in my computer. I installed the latest drivers version 314.07 newest ones, but now when i play certain games for example such as Day Z fav one. I get the Blue screen of death. I have a mini dump of the BSOD.

  1. Hey,
    I'm new to this forum and am by no means an expert with regards to your problem, but what I can tell you is that I have a similar problem.
    {nvlddmkm.sys} I have windows 7 pro. I've gone to device manager and uninstalled my Nvidia display adapter and drivers. And restarted my computer, which allowed a reload of drivers.
    upon restarting after updating to a newer set of drivers; my OS freezes and never makes it to desktop. I have to then restart again and press f-8 to load last known good settings, which reverts back to the former drivers.
    One time {nvlddmkm.sys} I got a message that windows could not authenticate. So I went to the Nvidia folder and deleted{nvlddmkm.sys}, and it worked.
    Also windows update for Nvidia freezes my computer.
    So I stay with the old driver and the card works great. No problems. I just thought newer meant better.
  2. im confused why you went from a 5750 to a 9800gt? the 5750 would be as fast, if not faster in many games, and also has dx11.
    Did you uninstall all AMD/ati drivers before you installed the new card? use driversweeper to get rid of them properly. Use CCleaner to clean up your registry.
  3. iam2thecrowe,

    I'm sorry,

    I meant and ATI 5450 512mb, I find with the Geforce 9800 GT I get way more fps. I did uninstall all the ATi drivers, even updated the bios. I'll attempt using ccleaner.
  4. test your hardware

    now that everything else is running faster to esentially "feed" that faster video card there pushed faster = faults show up in faulty/failing hardware

    its a nvidia driver error, although it could be bad memory, i would try going to an older driver.
