HP Pavilion m8100n
Its been changed up a bit over time. Hard drive has died so I have a 1tb now. Inserted a GTS250 for gaming, and added a stick of ram (4gb total now).
Now onto my issue.
The first BSOD, I managed to snap a picture. It showed something about nvlddmkm.sys. Read up a bit and figured it was my video driver. Uninstalled that and tried install fresh
nVidia drivers. Their auto driver detector figured I has a 520 LE install, so I got myself the appropriate driver manually. It didn't install because it said it failed to
find compatible hardware. I let windows auto install it and everything went fine.
Pc worked fine for the whole day. Today, I got to use it a whole 6 or 7 minutes and it BSOD'd. This time however, it rebooted itself too quick for me to see anything. Then it
hung at the HP logo Which its liked to do when I get BSOD's in the past.
Possible Solutions I thought were the drivers which turned out to be no. Only other thing I can think of is RAM. Heres the thing. I've been through taking it all apart multiple times
in the past. In fact I've had a history of getting things like this happen, usually routed to my ram. I've taken everything apart and run MEMtest more then I care to saw. Never has
anything popped up, and I'm still using all the original memory that this PC came with. I'm nearly certain its not the ram.
If anymore info is required, I will gladly provide it. I have a phone and netbook I can hop on if this pc tanks again...guess I can consider myself lucky there.
