Hi guys, i know this problem has been up for nvidia graphic users for like i dunno how long..

but, do any of u guys know how to fix this?

here goes my computer specs:

Acer Aspire 6935
Intel® core™2 Duo CPU P7350 @2.00Ghz 2.00 Ghz
RAM: 4.00GB
vista 32bit
nvidia 9600m GT

errr dunno hw to gather the rest of the specs. lol.

so.. i always encounter this nvlddmkm problem, while workin with my 3d modelling software, rhinoceros. and i desperately need help here.

*woops! okay, the problem is it says: 'display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has succesfully recovered' and then it will stop the program i used, Rhinoceros, from responding as well*

and yeah....
i found that some people suggesting to lower down the clock speed of the graphic cards.
install the latest directx, or update the driver.

i did all those (except the clockspeed, coz i dunno how to do that), and it din work...

if you guys have any experience on this, with the same laptop, or using the same program before u encounter the same problem (yea rite). please please please help me...

You have not really given a description of what the problem is, other than to call it the "nvlddmkm problem"

Try scanning your memory for errors. http://memtest86.com/ . Download and burn the iso image to a disc (if you need help with that, let us know). Restart your computer with the disc in it,and make sure your computer boots off of it. Let it run overnight, or for at least 2-3 hours.

I don't know if this will help but I found this,

Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding -- FIX-- - Dwai
03-Mar-07 06:31:00

I have found and fixed the problem today. This is what appears to happen.
during the installation of the most current drivers 100.65 Vista, an OLD file
nvlddmkm.sys is copied into windows/system32/drivers and not the current one
in the install. As a result the new drivers are attempting to access a file
dated 11/2006 instead of 2/2007 ver which is in the newest WHQL
driver ver 100.65 vista 32.

Fix: Go to windows/system32/drivers and rename nvlddmkm.sys to
nvlddmkm.sys.old. Go to the nvidia directory and find the file nvlddmkm.sy_
and copy it to windows/system32. Using the cmd window (DOS box) type
EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys. When the expansion is complete, copy
the new nvlddmkm.sys to windows/system32/drivers and restart the computer.

Your computer should now work properly.

You will notice that any uninstall and reinstall of nvidia drivers will not
remove the old nvlddmkm.sys file and will not overwrite it with the newer
version. You have to do it manually. I do not know why this happens but who
cares as long it is fixed.
