Vista x86 BSOD with nvlddmkm.sys

2008-02-01, 22:17 PM
Hi,
 
Searched this forum, but did not find any specific posts mentioning this, however, I've found plenty of other hits on sites complaining about NVidia related blue screens.
 
I've got a brand new T61p that will blue screen when returning from sleep or hibernation. From the factory, I've got the 7.15.11.5685 video driver installed, which includes the Forceware version 156.85. System is a T7300 CPU with 2gb of RAM.
 
Would be great to have the ability to sleep or hibernate with this notebook.
 
Thanks,
Andrew

Hi.  Did you ever get this resolved? 
I have a brand new T61p with NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M, and I have the exact same issue.  Running Vista Enterprise and when I resume, I get the BSOD on NVLDDMKM.SYS every time.  I am also running NVIDIA drvier 7.15.11.5685, which was published last year.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Same problem here. T61P, 570M, 7.15.11.5685, Vista Enterprise 32-bit, 4Gb RAM. I even tried to apply Vista SP1. It still crashes, but I think not as often as before. BIOS upgraded recently, all Lenovo updates installed.

Hello,
 
What BIOS revision are you running?

Re: Vista x86 BSOD with nvlddmkm.sys

I just got my T61P yesterday, configured as below.  I get artifacts (looks like thick dashed lines moving around the windows) when running Vista with the Vista default theme.  I was also getting an internal error when running the PC Doctor memory test against the 570 card and the BSOD NVLDDMKM.SYS error 50% of the time when PC Doc ran the wire frame test.  CalIed Lenovo support and was instructed to downgrade my driver (same install as above threads from factory) to the 0146 released in 1/08.  Did this, and now I pass the memory test but still have the artifacts and BSOD running the wire frame test.  I do not see any artifacts when running in windows classic theme, but experience the same BSOD with either one.  I was not instructed to yet by Lenovo, but I've checked my bios version.  The only bios available on the website is older than what was installed from the factory.  I received a 2.12 bios and the Lenovo support site only has 2.10 as the latest.  Not sure what gives there, but I must be current.
 
I plan to call support back to see what it is they recommend next, but there seems to be an issue with the nvidia drivers and Vista.  Any ideas here would be appreciated.

Are you seeing the same artifacts around the windows, and checkboard patterns in elements of the sidebar when you're running the Vista theme?  If you change to the Windows Classic theme do the artifacts go away?  Can you also post what BIOS version you have?  I have 2.12 and the most current version of the Lenovo support site is 2.10.
 
Personally, I find it unacceptable that a laptop could be shipped by Lenovo that so clearly exibits this behavior?  Who thought that this was "acceptable"  behavior in a Thinkpad?  I'm afraid to migrate from my T41 for fear that I'll be losing all my configuration work.  If I wanted this kind of frustration, I could have saved $400 and ordered a Dell.

I installed Vista SP1 and a new nvlddmkm.sys version 7.15.11.7431 which came through Windows auto-update.  I no longer have any issues with suspend resume, and I never saw the other artifact/drawing issues on my unit.

What is your BIOS version?  I have 2.12, which is not even available on the Lenovo support site (version 2.10 is available for download).  Just curious given the differences between symptoms that are presented.

I have BIOS version 2.10, and nVidia driver v. 7.15.11.7431, both the most current available. I have changed both memory modules (2*2Gb) and the harddrive. I have tried Vista x86 SP1, now running Vista x64 SP1. Still crashes, BSOD or just stops. Some times related to docking. Might be related to VMware Workstation.
