Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding -- FIX--

Hi, Tibery-OS
Open a cmd prompt and run the command expand /?
Ending an extension with an underscore character is one way of indicating
that the file is compressed and can be expanded. You have to figure out for
yourself what the underscore should be changed to, but often it is kind of
obvious.

When Tibery-OS attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a
Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at
the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home near spilled
sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal
gasoline and plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.
The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the
best laugh he'd ever had.

Just tried this exactly as the OP specified and makes no difference.
Tried with latest driver:
"163.75_forceware_winvista_32bit_international_whql"

Expand etc worked and updated the file.
Still crashes in any game after a few mins unless i underclock by about 10%.

Assuming it really is a power issue with these cards needing 600 + watts?

Expand the file in the NVIDIA directory NOT the System32 one. Once the file has expanded THEN move it to the System32 folder.

C:\NVIDIA\WinVista64\163.75\IS>EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys
Microsoft (R) File Expansion Utility Version 6.0.6000.16386
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Expanding nvlddmkm.sy_ to nvlddmkm.sys.
nvlddmkm.sy_: 4634314 bytes expanded to 9673120 bytes, 108% increase.

After a few days of nightmarish attempts to fix this; including buying a new, higher wattage power supply; adding another case fan and trying out different nvidia driver schemes I've finally found something that looks promising:

I jettisoned the nvidia drivers and installed the omega version. (http://www.omegadrivers.net/)

I'm on Vista 64-bit. Looks like I wasted some cash getting parts maybe I didn't need but at least I appear to be back in business.

Well done! As Anthony Robbins says, "Repetition is the mother of skill".

Do you techarena moron dipsticks even look at the date of the post you're
replying to???
Do you know what a complete sentence is. Are you familiar with punctuation?
What does this have to do with Vista? It's a Nvidia problem!
