Hello! My son has recently been playing Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2 on our family PC. He encountered a problem while playing, as in a flash of black screen that he disregarded as lag, and now when our Geforce 8500 Gt is enabled, i cannot run my computer in anything other than safe mode. I can run it in normal mode if i disable the device. I do not know what to do, if i need a new graphics chip or if its a simple directx 9.0 or 10.0 fix. please help! the following link provides an image of the error that comes up when i log into safe mode.

Hi,

It seems that you are experiencing blue screen errors, please do the following:

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. :thumbsup:

Try uninstalling the current video drivers...and installing fresh or updated video drivers.

Please...post the detail, as previously suggested.

Any BSOD is important and it helps if a pattern can be seen...in those situations where users have many BSODs.

Did you try uninstalling/reinstalling the video drivers?

You are running Windows Vista correct?

Your problem is related to your Nvidia brand video graphic drivers.

The culprit or driver is this one. Caused By Driver : nvlddmkm.sys File Version : 7.15.11.7824
I have the same file on my windows 7 computer but my version is the following 8.17.12.5896 it is a Windows Vista and Windows 7 driver, therefore your driver is out of date and should be updated to the latest driver.

Go to the Nivida web site and if you need to, let the automated program on Nvidia's web site auto-detect your current video card's driver.

Here is the link. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us Please allow this program to run by clicking the yellow bar at the top of your broswer and choose allow, this is only displayed in Windows Internet Explorer 7 or 8 with Windows XP SP3, Vista or Windows 7.

Allow the auto-detection to run, it will point you to the correct updated driver.

Bruce.

Thank you all for your help. The last thing i did was update my nvidia like Bruce said, and while that seemed to fix the problem outside of the game, he just tried to play and said that the same thing happened again. He got into the game and then he saw a black flash then the game screen, completely lagged out. It seems something is still wrong with the driver or my chip.
