Hello all,

Has anyone dealt with "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding"

My computer keeps crashing, and cyberpower does not reply to my emails. If anyone can give me any pointers, i would highly appreciate it. Thank you

I would try updating the GPU driver 1st. Goto the NVIDIA page and search for the latest driver for that GPU. Or you can select the page to auto-detect your GPU, which requires Java. It will prompt you to install Java if you want to do it that way, but it's prolly easier to just select the latest driver from the list. Select "clean install" under custom install, which will completely remove the old driver first in case it is corrupted. Does it only happen during gaming?

If it doesn't Light Up, Turn On, or Plug In, I don't want it!

GPU driver issues are one of the most common causes of BSOD's.

As stated, first try a clean install of the GPU newest drivers. Unless you really use 3D drivers, I suggest doing a custom install and not installing them, if that is a current option.

If you still have issues, you want to find out what is causing the problem.
