nvlddmkm.sys BSOD
I guess that this irritating nvlddmkm.sys BSOD crash bothers quite a few people, so in the next few minutes I’ll explain how to permanently solve this error. I’ve researched this topic for quite a while so this is going to save you a lot of time and frustration.

About this file
It is part of your Nvidia® display driver installation, and it is located under the following path: nvlddmkm.sys fileC:\windows\system32\drivers

Description of the problem
Blue screens of death crashes (STOP errors) associated with this file usually occur on all popular Windows platforms: XP, Vista, and even Windows 7. Crashes might occur randomly or at different situations such as immediately after installing Windows, while trying to install new video display drivers, or while playing video games.

Other reported problems related to this nvlddmkm.sys are that it involves in slowing down Windows startup process.

Source of the problem
The good news is that there’s one general point of failure that causes this problem – that is a driver(s) problem. I deliberately wrote driver(s) and not just ‘driver’. Indeed the first and most obvious possible point of failure is your Nvidia® display driver; however it might be another problematic driver such as a motherboard driver that might be causing all that trouble.

From some reason your Nvidia® display driver and/or one of your other system/motherboard drivers are either obsolete or corrupted.

How to solve the nvlddmkm.sys BSOD
Warning! - Don’t manually try replace that file under any circumstances by another one. Many users try to download that file from random sites, and then they experience other problems. It just doesn’t work that way.

In order to solve the problem you need to make sure that your Nvidia® display driver as well as all your system drivers, and motherboard drivers aren’t outdated/corrupted, and if so, replace them with their ‘healthy’ and most updated versions.

Doing that manually is a time consuming, too risky, and inaccurate task. (You can never tell which are the most updated and exact required drivers). Anyway, I found that the safest (and by far the fastest) way to replace those problematic drivers is by using a reliable drivers repair tool.

To summarize - in order to repair this nvlddmkm.sys BSOD run a quick drivers scan and at the end see which drivers are causing this error, then install their latest, official, and most updated versions.

A little request...
Since each of you got a differently configured OS, Id like to know the exact symptoms that you encounter with this problem. Feel free to post this information at the bottom of this page. Thanks.

 
   
 

Tip – In order to avoid various problem in the future, I highly recommend you to periodically (say once a month) verify that all your drivers and I mean all of them, including your Windows, hardware devices, etc. are intact and most updated.

Hi,
I had the following error this afternoon: STOP: 0x0000007E...
nvlddmkm.sys - Address FFFFF88005D381DC base at FFFFF880058DB000, Datastamp 507db70d
I've tried looking for the nvlmddmkm.sys file, but apparently my laptop does not have it. I can only find the nvlmddmkm.sy_ file, in my Nvidia file folder. Should I just reinstall the driver? I did that the second time this happened, and apparently it hasn't fixed it (this is the third time). Although, I did find three other older versions of the nvlddmkm.sy_ file, which I deleted. They are sitting in my recycling bin as I type this. My laptop is a Lenovo T420 running Windows 7 64 bit. Thanks.

Hi Luke,

Where did you get that driver from? Anyway I suggest you to run a quick drivers scan via the above tool - see if it indicates anything regarding NVIDIA, if so replace that driver with the suggested up-to-date driver. Let me know if that solves the problem.

Yaron.

i got "There are no items to display." from Driver Manager on ParetoLogic PC Health Advisor.

I guess there is nothing to update but this problem is still happening.

Yaron Aug 19, 2012

In that case the problem might occur due to a corrupted NVIDIA display driver so I suggest you to do the following:
(1) Remove your NVIDIA display driver
(2) Restart Windows
(3) Run another drivers scan
(4) The missing NVIDIA driver should be detected and it should let you download the latest certified version of that driver that matches your specific hardware

Let me know if that solved the problem.

I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia and I'm still getting the blue screen.

Admin Jul 24, 2012

Hi Keith,

First you need to uninstall your NVIDIA driver, then restart Windows, and then install the latest compatible version of your NVIDIA card - did you do that?

Also, you might have downloaded an incorrect/incompatible driver - after removing the driver run another drivers scan via the above drivers tool - it should notice the missing driver and suggest a matching (compatible and certified) replacement driver for you to download.

I'd also suggest you to scan all your other drivers (via the above drivers tool) to see if any of them are outdated/missing. Replace ALL outdated/missing drivers and see if that helps.

Let me know if that solves the problem.


Keith Jul 20, 2012

I get the same thing when trying to play any game (AoE III, Sins Of A Solar Empire, etc.). The screen will go dark momentarily and then I'll get hit with the Blue Screen.

Same as Tim Lee, screen goes black then long delay and BSOD with the nvlddmkm.sys as the problem. Happens during video game (BF3) and during flash player videos.


Tim Lee Jul 3, 2012

Every once in a while our screen just goes black and then a blue screen with a bunch of stuff on it including the nvlddmkm.sys show up ... I will try and fix it now and let you know.

Thanks,

Tim
