Nvidia GeForce 8500GT BSOD Nvlddmkm.sys Error

» Any time I try to install video drivers, I get the same BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys. I have tried all kinds of drivers from the default one provided with Win7. All give exactly the same fault. Including driver updates and elimination of older versions of the drivers have been suggested. My system has never had any problems running Windows XP.

» Nvlddmkm.sys file is part of the Nvidia® graphic card's display driver, usually found under the following file path: C:\windows\system32\drivers. If found at this location, you can be sure that it is a legitimate file and not some kind of a Trojan.

Many Windows 7, Vista, and XP users whom are experiencing STOP errors (blue screen crashes) related to this file, complain that these crashes occur randomly, and in many cases right after either reinstalling Windows OS, while playing video games, or right after installing new graphic drivers. Always hoping to fix problems yourself, look around on the interwebz where many people suggested it was a problem with the newest Nvidia driver, so you played around with different versions and even down clocked the GPU as suggested by others - nothing's working. Since Safe Mode runs perfectly, this is neither a hardware issue nor a heat issue.

If you are still getting the BSOD, freeze screens /black screens, then another rather easy fix is to copy a good updated nvlddmkm.sys over, DLL Suite can be used well enough. DLL Suite is an advanced DLL files fixer designed to fix all the daily computer problems related to DLL files, EXE files and SYS files.

    Never use drivers provided by Windows Update unless the manufacturer does not offer anything that looks like it will work.

  2. JAMES HALE replied on February 14, 2013: » Every time I use Driver Sweeper, for deleting old driver files. I install new drivers, and after System restarts, Microsoft logo appears, blank screen, and after 30-60 seconds, I get the BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys. I have updated BIOS, and checked my RAM for errors with Windows memory diagnostic tools. No errors found.

    My system worked just fine for a year and few months, everything was perfect-and then this error appeared. I reinstalled Windows 7, new drivers update, but no success. Please help

  3. MARK HARDIN replied on February 15, 2013: » Can you zip up the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder and make available (provide link) via Windows Live SkyDrive or similar site?

    The following link has information on using Windows Live SkyDrive: If you have problems zipping the minidump files copy the minidump files to another location such as a folder on the Desktop.

  4. JAMES HALE replied on February 15, 2013: » I have updated it just after last BSOD. Latest BIOS is version 0805 released on 11/11/2009. But still no effect. I get the same BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys.
