Question about HP Media Center PC 873n (P9875A#ABA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

HP 873n, had Display driver nvlddmkm error, now won't boot

The computer was running very slow, we received the error "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding " and it would stop responding. Rebooting several times did not work. I booted in safe mode, deleted the display driver and rebooted. It started up, said it was looking for the driver for the display card it found and hung up. The monitor went to sleep and it has not booted cleanly since. I have a USB optical mouse that does not light up when plugged in now.

    Unfortunately, I can no longer boot the PC. I disconnected everything, and it won't even go to a post screen. As I mentioned, the USB mouse isn't even getting power. A quick flash when the PC powers on, then nothing. I disconnected the hard drive to force a non-system disk error, but still nothing. Will not boot at all.

XP operating system?
Have you ever defragmented the computer?
Have you updated the video drivers?
A good source for updating your drivers is called Driver detective.If your video card is an nVidia card, then go to their web page and update the drivers and then go to Microsoft and update the DirectX drivers.

This is a know issue and there is know known solution to this. My take on this is heating problem and vista power management.

its a big mess and different things work for different people. My take would be to update the nvidia drivers and hange the power settings in vista. Control Panel> power management> balanced.

For more possible fixes see http://i.nconspicuo.us/2007/03/28/nvidia-nvlddmkm-vista-driver-fix-here-is-the-solution/

    same as earlier..
    did you overclock anything on the pc?? the cpu or the gpu clocks or the fsb??

    try posting with only the keyboard and mouse connected and see what happens..

    press F or delete button to access the bios and restore defaults there.

    Call up HP and have them walk you through NVram jumper clear on the motherboard.

    let me know how this goes.......

Help.............. my system shows bluescreen Technical information stop: 0x00000116 (0x80c4c510, 0x8c106a30, 0x00000000, 0x00000002) nvlddmkm.sys - adress 8c30DA30 base at 8c22f000, datestamp 4b0764b5


nvlddmkm.sys is nvidia graphic card driver files, first off download latest driver form nvidia official site..get it here...use drop-down list to fill the model of your graphic card and OS..
If you can not boot from your system normally you can enter to safe mode instead, then remove all previous nvidia drivers that installed on your laptop, also you can do manually remove nvidia installations folder include 'nvlddmkm.sys'..You have need to restart your laptop to make changes then install new driver you have already downloaded...

Display driver stopped responding NVLDDMKM.SYS


Hi,

The problem is not the hardware but basically a driver that is corrupt. The graphcs driver thats crashing is one for nVidia, the fix for this is an easy one.

Restart the laptop and repeatedly tap the F8 key. This should take you to an advanced boot options screen. Use the cursor key to navigate to Safe Mode and hit the enter. The computer will start up using basic display drivers so the nVidia drivers won't load and crash the machine.

When the comuter has booted right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter2_bing.gif and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots2_bing.gif in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Acer Support2_bing.gif website or perform a Microsoft update and see if there any updated drivers for the nVidia graphics.



Regards.

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding how to fix this problem.


This problem can be caused by 2 things, a problem with ur nvidia drivers, or with ur nvidia hardware. When does this problem happen? if u cant even start windows, its a hardware problem(had it 1 month ago and had to replace my video card), if u can start windows normally but sometimes this happens, try downloading the last driver available for ur videocard.

Problem with display in DELL XPS M1530


Your video driver crashed. Have you installed a video game or Fusion tv tuner recently. deinstal and reload your video driver. holding down the F8 key while booting go into control mode (which doesn't load drivers) delete app, then load drivers from your CD.

Display driver stopped responding


For this issue , You need to boot in safe mode by tapping F8 key and go to safe mode with networking (As internet works in this mode). Try installing the Driver again from the following website "http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html"

OR click on the following link


javascript:%20checkAgreement('http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload/download_confirmation.asp?kw=&url=http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/179.48/179.48_notebook_winxp_32bit_beta.exe');

Hope it works.
Cheers

My Hp PAvilion DV9000 LAptops screen keeps going blank. If I hook it up to and external monitor then it works.


YOUR INTERAL DISPLAY ADAPTOR MAY BE GOING BAD, HAVE U TRIED REINSTALLING THE DRIVER , IF SO ITS UR ADAPTOR OR THE SCREEN ITSELF WHICH IS NOT A BIG PROBLEM REPLACING. THE EASIEST THING TO DO IS ASSUME ITS THE MONITOR. DOES IT DO THIS IMMEDIATELY OR DOES IT TAKE A WHILE. WHEN U HOOK UP THE OTHER MONITOR DO BOTH SCREENS WORK.
