ok this has been going for for FAR TOO long this is the final FUC*** moment

 

what i have found out/tried so far in my 2 years of observing/trying to solve this issue:

reseating the RAM results in 2-4 weeks of BSOD-Error free experience, but after that the "Nvlddmkm" BSOD/Freezing/Black screen RETURNS

purchased a new graphics card, this resulted in 2-3 MONTHS of BSOD-Error free experience but after that yes "Nvlddmkm" BSOD's etc RETURNED!

new ram also did NOT Help and i have run a memory test

system restored

old/new nvidia drivers with DDU

msconfig unchecked all startup items

tried safemode and it does not bsod

ran harddisk check

mbam full scan hasn't found anything and haven't been infected in years

 

Current Problems:

BSoD's (culprit being blamed on "nvlddmkm.sys"

Black Screen (This can sometimes happen instead of the BSoD) and might appear at startup too (not always)

Gaming / Audio STUTTERING /

 

SPECS:

nvidia gtx 960 / i7 950

windows 7 / 8gb ram

motherboard : GA-X58A-UD3R

 

MINOR PROBLEMS:

For some reason .DMP are NOT being produced!

HOWEVER they are available at C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\WATCHDOG (which is what iv'e uploaded/attached)

either way i have now installed "kb2716542" which will hopefully fix the no dump issue from now

The WD dumps are usually reports that are going to Microsoft.

Most often I find that they are related to video errors.

In this case (as in most cases) they are reports of STOP 0x117 errors.

These errors are actually BSOD errors without the Blue Screen.

They are associated with the message (from the system tray) that the Display Driver has stopped responding and has recovered.

If it hadn't of recovered, you would have had a BSOD and the error would have been a STOP 0x116

Please follow these troubleshooting suggestions:  http://www.sysnative.com/forums/bsod-kernel-dump-analysis-debugging-information/35-video-tdr-timeout-0x116-0x117.html#post29532
Also, please monitor your temps with this free utility: 

 

SpeedFan v. 4.5.1 and later (free from here:  http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php ) can log temperatures in a CSV file:

To make it work you have to do BOTH of the below:

1. Enable logging in general: Configure...Log...check "Enabled" then click on OK to save.

2. Enable logging for specific checks: Configure...Temperatures..left click on each sensor, then click on "Logged" at the bottom of the Window (for our purposes we want them all) then once you've selected "Logged" for all sensors, then click on OK to save.

The log will be located at C:\Program Files (x86)\SpeedFan

Naming: log files are named SFLogYYYYMMDD.csv, where YYYY is the year (four digits), MM is the month (2 digits, zero padded) and DD is the day (2 digits, zero padded). If a file already exists by that name, the file that already exists is renamed according to the following naming scheme: SFLogYYYYMMDD-CCCC.csv, where CCCC is a increasing number. The new file is then created with the standard file name scheme.

Notes: whenever you change the options related with logging, SpeedFan starts a new log file.

NOTE:You may want to turn logging off when we're done - as I don't know it's impact on performance or on the system.

 

More to follow, but I may get interrupted.

We just had a granddaughter and I'm waiting for my wife to pick me up to go to the hospital!!!

After the most thorough and aggressive dust clean I have ever done, I am no longer getting any errors/problems

However I will report here if there are any new issues relating to the same BSoD. Thanks for the reply/useful info either way.
