Well since a beautiful recovery of a new graphics card...around 5 to 6 weeks later I started to get multiple driver related BSOD's.

Graphics Card: EVGA GT240 DDR3 from *original* EVGA 8500GT GDDR3
)
PC: Velocity Micro Promagix T1000

ISSUES:
1.DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009F (0x00000003,0x87767030,0x879B9030,0x865E78F8)

2.Nvlddmkm.sys 0x00000116 (0x88758510,0x8F8EDA30,0x0000000,0x00000002)

3.DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
0x000000D1 (0x0000000C,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x90E63A5F)

WHAT IS EACH ONE SPECIFICALLY AND WHAT USUALLY CAUSES THEM?????

QUESTION CONSIDERED

Would reformating my Hard-drive and PC as a whole clean my system of these BSOD's?

How do I avoid them?

Who should I contact to have the best chance to fix this issue?
EX: Fry's repair, Joylap PC, Central Computers, *who's trust worthy???*...etc
*PM me to rtrlew@hotmail.com if this type of advertising is not permitted*

Do you think that the difference in graphics card memory could be the cause to some of the problems i'm getting

GT240 *DDR3* from 8500GT *GDDR3*

Keep in mind that my errors do not happen consistently...same as most of the other people with the same types of BSOD's...they tend to happen randomly which drives me crazy.

ANY HELP WITH BSOD DESCRIPTIONS WOULD BE OHHH SO APPRECIATED!!!!
TRY TO ANSWER AS MANY OF MY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE =)

THANK YOU

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Try this Driver Sweeper and then reinstall your drivers.

I already did that this morning, I'll see what happen


This is what I did
1. I uninstalled my current Nvidia drivers
2. went into safe-mode and used Driver Sweeper...I had a few rogue drivers which I cleaned out and then rebooted.
3. I started up again and install my latest Nvidia drivers and rebooted as required
4. For the Wifi BSOD...it hasn't happend today so I might keep that driver on there until it come up again if it ever does, if it does then I'll uninstall it.

Do you think that reformating my computer will clean me of these offending drivers? I might consider having someone diagnose it and reformating it if I can't solve it myself with tips.

Well, all we know is that one error came from wireless driver and the other one from nVidia driver, so whatever you do, you have to focus on those two drivers.

Ok well do you recommend that I uninstall the stated offending drivers?

If so *which I will most likely do anyways* I'll try to give some feedback on the later outcome of the computer and tell if I've had any errors since.

In the long run...if nessesary, will reformating delete the offending drivers that may be causing my issues? I'll probably have someone I know do this for me because he's one of the people at his work that does this as a part time job *reformating PC's, Hard-drives...etc*

Since you did what Dan suggested and it didn't help, I'd probably go for fresh Windows install.

Well I have done what Dan had stated....uhh I haven't and wont say that its not working because I would like to see if the errors persist, thus I have not given my computer enough to state whether or not the ideas fixed my problem or not....

As I stated I will be giving feedback to allow you the chance to see the progress whether it gets worse or better.

As far as I know the *driver_power_state_failure happened when I was playing NFS Shift and once when turning my computer off.

I don't know why I got the *driver_irql* because I've never had problems with my wifi connection, but ohh well I guess it happened and I cant say it didn't XD.

*nvlddmkm.sys* happened when I started up my computer one morning, but I don't see how starting up my computer caused that error, but I wasn't the only one who had ever gotten it on boot up....in fact most of that issue relates to ppl not being able to boot up in Normal windows because of the BSOD.

I'm starting to question things that have happened recently that could've caused some of these issues...sometimes I come to wonder if the damn repair.exe for the game Allods online messed up my computer =O because surprisingly I had never had any BSOD before then!!
