  1. How does this work for people without integrated graphics? Unistalling anything Nvidia results usually in a dead card until drivers can be reinstalled.

  2. None of the methods works.I think reballing works

  3. Did all above but still happens. Stupid nvidia

  4. When I got this error I was because my heavy video-card was bending in its port – I fixed this by lying my case on its side instead of vertical, no error anymore. Just MAKE SURE there is adequate airflow if you lie it down.

  5. Doesn’t work, the best you can do is restart your pc and try and update to the newest drivers. I get this error because certain steam games don’t like nvidia hardware and when you update any of these games it results in a blue screen with the error shown above. Seriously nvidia fix your software,
    p.s. steam please fix this issue if possible.

  6. Could you please mention which game don’t work well with Nvidia hardware from steam that you know of?

  7. I tried a number of these steps with no luck. I have been having multiple daily BSOD’s playing Lord of the Rings Online for months and this morning was literally crashing after every 10 seconds of gameplay. Finally, I tried uninstalling the NVidia programs from the control panel. The system seems to have auto-installed the graphics driver back for me. It went from version 442.53 to 398.36 and I have been playing an hour now with no issues so far. Best of luck!

  8. I tried everything listed here including reinstalling Windows and yet the problem persisted until I “disable” my Intel Display and just keep NVIDIA running.

  9. I just had to deal with this headache and terrible ghosting as a result, luckily I solved it in less than an hour. I had used DDU in Safe Mode then installed the latest Nvidia driver- no help. I cleaned registry and caches- no help. I tried SFC and DISM tools with Command Prompt (As Admin)- no help. I removed devices not present in the system- no help.
    What finally did it was going into my TV menu (I own a Hisense 55UG7) and in Settings>Advanced Menu I selected Clear Cache. Voila, my ghosting is gone. I think what caused it was a system update in my display which botched something in the Video Scheduler as I did see a notification about new features pop up when i went to the home screen of the TV.

    Hope that helps anyone having this issue.
