    Continuous BSOD // VIDEO TDR FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys)


    Hello,

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10, since upgrading I'm having pretty regular BSOD Crashes where the following error message appears;

    VIDEO TDR FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys)


    It appears to happen at completly random times, could be watching a youtube video, opening a reddit page or just playing a song on itunes. I've updated to the most recent Nvidia drivers but to no avail. I also tried to follow the following instructions from this youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrOKlh9fC9g [1] ), however its still happening.


    If anyone could help me that would be amazing as my computer is currently pretty much unusable! Specs are below, thanks in advanced!


    Intel® Core™ 2 Quad-Core Processor Q9550 (2.83Ghz, 1333MHz FSB, 12MB cache)

    4096MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [4x1024]

    Hard Drive 1TB NCQ SATA (2x500GB) 7200Rpm Dual HDD Config Raid 0 Stripe

    Single 1GB DDR3 nVidia® GeForce™ GTX285 graphics card

    PCI Card Ageia PhysX 128MB

    Exactly the same BSOD here with nVidia GTX 850M and Windows 10 Pro.

    On Windows 8.1 I had that problem, but rarely, but since I upgraded to Windows 10, it's catastrophically, my computer BSOD randomly, mostly in short time after restart - I cannot lunch Photoshop either, it causes immediate crash/freeze.
    And yes, I use Photoshop for job, and I cannot use it at all!

    Before BSOD - I can see error notification that nVidia driver has crashed but has been recovered successfully, but then same message appears once again and my laptop crashes to BSOD.

    As temporary relief I found that re-installation of nVidia drivers helps, but it lasts as long as I don't hibernate/restart/shutdown my computer.

    I am facing the same issue after upgrading to Windows 10.

    This issue is primarily being observed by Laptop users with Nvidia Graphics Cards.

    I found a solution.
    In fact, you don't have only a Nvidia graphic card. You also have a Intel Graphic Chipset (Like Intel HD Graphics 4600) that don't correctly work with W10. I disabled it and I put my nvidia card "primary" in the settings.
    (I admit, it's not a solution, it's a replacement, waiting for Intel to correct the issue)

    I may be wrong. Go check in your system parameters to see if you have an Intel Graphic in your graphic cards.

    i have gotten this issue too and i do have a laptop with both a dedicated graphics and intel chip. i will see if setting it to primary works for me. Dont want to do it since i run on battery a lot and this will drain faster

    Hi there sorry for reviving an old topic.

    I recently got a new laptop with below specs
    I7 6700hq
    16gb ram
    Gtx970m
    1tb hdd
    256gb ssd
    Windows 10 64 bit

    I got this Nvlddmkm.sys error within an hour of booting the laptop.
    After tinkering around, i realize the nvidia geforce experience program was a 32bit version whereas windows was 64bit. Has anyone encountered this and if this is a known problem? Are there 2 diff geforce programs for 32/64bit respectively?
