Hello All,

 

I just got a desktop assembled (Intel i5-3330 CPU, Board: Intel DB75EN, Windows 7 32 Bit, RAM: 4GB DDR3, Transcend), for general home use. I got a NVIDIA GeForce 210 video card along with that. 

 

I get this error every few minutes:

 

"Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 320.49 stopped responding and has successfully recovered"
 
After which I get a BSOD. 
 
I have the latest drivers installed. I have tried the forums, nothing has been of much help.
 
Should I get a better graphics card instead?
 
-CF

You should put it in another computer and see if the card is faulty (most likely).

Meanwhile use the integrated video and maintain heavy load to push the limits (memtest, Prime95).

 

If it's a generic no-name, might try swapping the power supply.

I have seen reports that v320.49 doesn't play well with older hardware.
It gave me a few issues (screen flicker, stuttering) on my Gigabyte GTX 460 (1GB).
I went back to v314.22 and everything is working ok. See if that helps.

The issue is indeed more common with GeForce 400 series and derivatives, though there have been complaints from GeForce 500 series, 600 series, and even current (7xx) series owners as well.

 

I have a GTX 550 Ti, and the 320.49 betas (and the later now-current 326.01 WHQL Forceware release) have been as painless a set of drivers as I have ever used - and I'm coming from AMD (where I had had largely NO issues with Catalyst, and that goes back to the original 3D Rage graphics chipset).  As to why this long-time fanATIc went Green, it can be summed up rather succinctly - price, price, price.  This GTX 550 Ti (refurbished) cost me $63.49USD, including taxes.  Had an AMD HD5770/HD6770 been available for the same price, in the same condition, I would have pounced on it.  So it's not about issues with AMD, for the simple reason that I didn't have any.

I have a Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC and I had the same problem with the 320.49 drivers... From what I have seen on various other websites it seems the 320 series of drivers have major issues with some graphics cards. So I reverted back to the 314.22 and so far I have had no issues with these drivers.

I have had a proper look through the windows logs and it seems to be caused by nvlddmkm, which is a component of the Nvidia drivers. If you random lock ups or BSOD or sometimes get the message 'Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 320.49 stopped responding and has successfully recovered' pop up.

 

Check your system logs for this message...

 

The description for Event ID 14 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

\Device\Video5
!06d7(2648)

 

If you do have these issues reinstall the 314.22 drivers make sure to select 'Custom (Advanced), once opened click the Perform a clean installation check box' as this will uninstall the 320.49 drivers properly. Custom (Advanced) also allows you to select what components of the Nvida drivers you wish to install too.

Latest news... I have been onto Nvidia website and they have just released 326.19 (Beta drivers). I have not installed them so can't comment on how well they work yet, I will wait until they go WHQL certified first. If any one has installed them please leave a post on here, informing how well they work etc.. thanks.

Well it's nice to see Google works then... obviously the 326.19 drivers also has some issues like the 320.49 drivers. I was thinking of buying a new graphics card; now it just might have to be a AMD 7850 instead of the GTX 660, that I was thinking of buying.

320.49 is the latest WHQL, and 326.19 is the latest Beta...I've had zero issues on 320.49 with my Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti on Windows 8.1 x64

Yes I know that. I was more referring to PGHammer's statement of 326.01 WHQL drivers, which don't exist.
