    BSOD Driver Power State Failure


    Hey guys,

    Ever since I updated to windows 10, my computer automatically installs some Nvidia drivers from their servers. From past experience I know that my computer can get random BSOD's with the wrong Nvidia drivers installed (WinDBG always pointed towards nvdllmkm.sys). So previously when their was an Nvidia update that would cause crashes, I could install a previous version that I knew was working, however if I do this know I'm forced to go to Nvidia builds before the windows 10 update and afterwards windows update just reinstalls the windows 10 version it thinks I need.

    So instead of trying to install previous Nvidia versions, I want to go into the root of the problem and find out why I'm getting these random BSOD's (BTW mostly happens when I'm watching a show, so could be temperature related?). Furthermore, I would prefer to stay on windows 10

    Sincerely,

    Mauroq

    Hi Mauroq,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    I see you have KMSpico, is it used for Windows?

    I believe I had to use it for my office installation.

    Please uninstall office and remove KMSpico.
    Counterfeit installations contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave in unexpected ways.

    Check my sig for how to disable driver updates through windows updates.

    If you still get a bluescreen caused by nvlddmkm.sys driver after disabling driver updates, disable the Nvidia Streamer Service in services (search: services.msc)

    The problem still persists. Just to be sure I re-runned the log collector.

    The cause is the Nvidia Video driver again.
    You do have the newest driver I guess?
    If so, try an older version and see if it helps.
    Code:
    4: kd> lmvm nvlddmkmstart             end                 module name
    fffff800`2e700000 fffff800`2f1ef000   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
        Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
        Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys
        Image name: nvlddmkm.sys

    I unistalled my Nvidia drivers using guru3d's software, and am currently installing the driver version 341.44 (last driver I know worked). Unfortunately I don't know any windows 10 Nvidia driver that doesn't cause issues for me. BTW the OEM Nvidia drivers are even older than the 341.44 version.

    WIth laptops I usually suggest to only install OEM drivers, but the last time I suggested that, the OP couldn't boot windows normally after installing the drivers.

    Before you switched to Nvidia drivers, were you capable of using the OEM drivers without problems?
