Error on Display driver nvlddmkm

Lately, when I find myself playing a more demanding game, my screen freezes while the sound still works perfectly. After a few seconds my screen flashes and everything gets back to normal on screen. I have taken a look at the notification that prompts me when this happens. I get this error message: “Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered”. I have surfed the internet and understood that it might be because of a motherboard circuit that heats up. However, I am not sure. My video card is Nvidia Geforce 8600 with the latest drivers installed, OS Windows 7 x64.

  • This is a frequent problem reported by the users of Nvidia. It is an overclocking ussues with these cards.
  • You can do a workaoround, following these steps:
  • Open the Nvidia Control panel

This should resolve your issue

Hi Matt!

I have encountered this problem with my computer before.  I was playing a massive combat online game when my screen froze up for a second and it went back fine but I got the notification displaying that same message.  I tried uninstalling my video card and unplugging it from its slot then plugged it back and reinstalled its drivers but it did not solve the problem. One thing I realized my computer got overheated at times so I think this might have an effect on my operating system.  So I decided to reformat my computer and since then I was not able to encounter that same problem.
