Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered – nvlddmkm nVidia Driver


So after installing Windows Vista, I’ve been getting the following error occassionally: Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered. Sometimes my system will freeze for a little while then the screen will go black and reappear, sometimes the screen will just go black and come then come back up. Either way, when the screen comes back up, the Windows Vista Aero theme is no longer enabled – all window transparency is gone.

I’m starting to wonder if my video card just doesn’t have enough juice to hack the Windows Vista Aero theme – 256MB PCIE 7300GS card should be able handle it though, right?
Has anyone else encountered problems with the nvlddmkm nVidia driver?
Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Nvidia Driver Update


Okay, I haven’t found a fix yet, but my computer has been running perfectly lately. Knock on wood. Only occassionally, will I start it up and see little dots all over the login screen – this is when I know that I might as well not even login because Windows Vista will just hang, freeze, and or Blue Screen.

  1. The display driver drops out on my HP PC for a few seconds, it’s not a great problem, only happens once a day, can happen with normal use, I don’t play games or have cards.
    I do have a second HP pc and it works fine no problem at all.

  2. I have a Dell XPS M1530 and about three months ago I updated my laptop, which wa srunning vista 34bit to windows 7 pro 64 bit (clean install) and I had to update my graphics card through a Dell patch so it would support the Windows 7. Everything was working fine, great infact until this week when I kept getting the message about how the display card had stopped working and had been recovered. I turned the laptop off and after a couple of days it was ok. Then it stared to happed again. the computer crashed a couple of times and blue screen came up memeory dump and rebooted etc and then finally a blue screen saying something about a hardware malfunction and that I need to contact my hardware provider. Now there is nothing. When I start it up there is a white screen which slowly fades into black. Prob is that I have upgraded the laptop to win 7 so Dell won’t even consider helping me. Is there anything I can do, such as buying a new graphic card or something.
    Please help.
