    Continuous BSODs, TDR_Video_Failure


    Hi,

    Hoping for some help. I've been getting pretty continuous BSODs with the error TDR_Video_Failure (nvlddmkm.sys). Sometimes it'll take awhile and other times I'll get them back to back.

    I've run Furmark for 30 mins on my resolution with no BSODs. Then I'll jump on WoW for 20 mins and I'll get one with the same error. Other times I won't even be near my computer and I'll get one.

    I'm running the newest graphics driver 341.81 and was getting the error on the last driver (I believe 341.70) also. I have also uninstalled the drivers multiple times with a clean install on just the driver with the same result.

    Not sure what to do

    Any help?

    It is a stop 0x116, a display/graphics related issue.

    Do two things.

    First, Stress test the graphics card (GTX 260) with furmark and let us know the result. FurMark - GPU Stress Test - Windows 10 Forums

    Also, Uninstall the installed display driver using Display Driver Uninstaller. Then install the 355.82 WHQL only.

    Let us know for any further BSOD after doing it. Further steps might be needed depending on the results.

    Hey Arc,

    Thank you for the reply! I ran furmark again with no problems or BDOS.

    I moved on to uninstalling the driver with Display Driver Uninstaller and completed that with no problems. My problem came with trying to install 355.82 WHQL, my device isn't compatible so I get the NVIDIA Installer cannot continue.

    Any advice?

    Sorry mate. I did not realize that 341.81 is the last driver for the 200 series cards. So, the remaining option is to go backwards.

    Try the 341.74 WHQL. It should work.

    Thanks again Arc.

    I'll test it out and update if I get another crash.

    Hey Arc,

    Its still happening. I have attached newest dump. This time I was monitoring my GPU temp to make sure that wasn't the cause but it was only around 67-70c while I was playing WoW.

    22 bytes is the folder header only, the uploaded zip does not contain anything.

    I have figured Windows 10 and my computer don't get along. I finally got tired of the BSOD that I reverted back to Windows 7 and am running fine.

    Thank you for the help but I guess either I'll wait to move up again or just keep on moving along with Win 7.

    Thanks Arc!

    Yes, that will be a good decision for that computer.
