So ever since I had my PC built, even with the 7300GT, every time I'd atl+tab out of a game, or quit one, it would say that "Driver nvdlnmmam" or something like that, "has stopped working but has successfuly recovered". Now, I just installed an 8800GTS over my 7300GT and first GTA:SA broke, now WoW has stopped working even after I've repaird and verified it an everything.... I still get the aforementioned driver error too... Is it a motherboard error, or what!?

 

 

Edit: Here's the WoW Error

This application has encountered a critical error:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
Program:    C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe
Exception:    0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 001B:0563C7CE

The instruction at "0x0563C7CE" referenced memory at "0x2242250C".
The memory could not be "read".


WoWBuild: 8606

Download and install driversweeper.Uninstall driver reboot. After the restart run driver sweeper and clear out the exitsing drivers. I like to also go to C: and delete the nvidia folder as well. Now try to install the driver of choice. Might i suggest a cuda driver then ya could put that card on the HotHardware Folding@Home Team

Hope that helps

I actually tried Driver Sweeper because my friend had a similar problem and that fixed it for him, but when I do it, Driversweeper says that there's some directory access error and doesn't work.

Are you using Vista ? If so right click on the driver sweeper icon and run as admin. If on xp try from safe mode. Let me know if it works

 Have you run Memtest and verified that your memory is working properly?

I would try that first then uninstall the game and reinstall. It looks like one of the game's DLL's  is trying to access a part of memory it shouldn't.

 

As an aside. I have never heard of driver Sweeper. I have always used Driver Cleaner Pro with good results.

Driver sweeper is new and free for either xp or vista. I stopped using drivercleaner when they charged for pro to use on vista. Do they still do this or is it free again?

I haven't used it for Vista so I don't know. The pro version is free for XP though.
