Nvlddmkm + Graphics Card Update

  1. Feb 27, 2010 #1
    Hey guys,

    Recently my computer has been hit with the nvlddmkm.sys error. Basically the screen blinks black every few minutes and then finally the monitor dies on me and requires a reboot before I can use my computer again.

    I have found a temporary fix, by deleting the nvlddmkm.sys file in System32 > Drivers.

    After rebooting my computer however, the Graphics Card Update rolls back as if I never installed the updates.

    I have a GeForce 9600 GT and the latest driver version is 196.21.

    That's the update I try installing.

    Basically, if I don't delete the nvlddmkm.sys file, it won't roll back but I will be persisted with the error.

    If I do delete it, I must re-install the update every time I reboot my computer.

    All help appreciated!

    What if you install older driver?
