I tried installing a later version of Nvidia driver, and the games I frequently use stop working with the newer version, so I had to download an older version just so I can get the games to run.
I want to know, is there a way to find out if that was a one time deal, or if it will be a recurring problem? I really really don't want to mess with my graphics card drivers, considering the last time I tried to do that, with both my laptops, most of my games stopped working.
I did have a problem with my Nvidia video card before, but I fixed it by reinstalling the same driver that came with my laptop. Tried installing a version later than the one that was initially on my laptop, but when I did that, my games just don't work, so I just installed the one that came with my laptop from my ASUS site. I have an ASUS laptop by the way.
As I said, I want to know is if this problem will happen again. It hasn't happened again yet.
What is NVLDDMKM.sys doing that would cause the driver_power_state_failure bugcheck? Is it hardware related? Are these kinds of things supposed to happen at least once, and be normal? As I said, I do not want to mess with the drivers, or change any configuration with my laptop, because the last time I did that, I can't play my games anymore.
I guess I'll do something about it when this problem happens again and more frequently, and it is from NVLDDMKM.sys
So far, unless you can tell me otherwise, this problem is a one time deal, and probably won't happen again in a long time. If anything I would probably just reinstall the same driver from the ASUS site.
