Nvidia Kernel Mode Driver Crashing

September 21, 2014 at 10:14:08
Specs: Windows 7, Intel i7 3.4GHz / 16GB
The recent Nvidia Drivers, including 344.11, caused my computer to be very slow, to lock up, and to have kernel errors that lock up the computer and black out the monitor.

No solutions came from Nvidia.

Just before my last lock up, my Norton service told me that the Nvidia Streamer Service was using all of the resources (i7 processor, 16GB, 3.4Ghz) I went into Task Manager, Services, and permanently disabled Nvidia Streamer Service. This solved my problems.

Nvidia did not attempt to solve the problem or put this out as a fix. Apparently they decided to throw away their core business of video cards, and screw those of us who bought them, in favor of some half baked gameing idea.

I urge you to stop buying Nvidia video cards.

You did not mention what video card you have.
You can try to roll back to the next older driver for your card/system.
Make sure you use the correct driver for your system (Windows 7 64bit, etc).
Personally I have not had problems with NVidia drivers (except one minor issue that was solved by rolling back to an older driver until the next version was released) but have had trouble with Norton as far as system resources is concerned.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
