I decided to sign up on this forum because the issue I am facing has, at this point, confused me to no end. Below I'm putting my system information and at the end of the post I will add the full story. As well as this I have attached the Sysnative report and the Performance Monitor report. Thank you!
· Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64-bit
· The install disc required an earlier version of windows, so I installed 64-bit Windows XP Professional.
· My system is custom built by myself, and is about three years old.
· When the problem first occurred and I was unable to find a solution, I went ahead with a fresh install of Windows 7, going through the same upgrade from XP process as stated above.
· CPU: AMD FX-4130 Quad Core 3.80GHz
· Video Card: My issue first began occurring with my EVGA GeForce GTX 650 ti 2gb card. I assumed the issue's root was a problem with the GFX card itself, so I sent it off to EVGA for a replacement under warranty. At the current moment I am using a Galaxy GeForce 8400GS 512mb card.
· MotherBoard: ASUS M5A78L-M LX Plus 760G Socket AM3+
· Power Supply: Diablotek DA Series 500w ATX
The problem began about five days ago at this point when I was playing Guild Wars 2. My screen went black for a moment, flashed back on, went black a second time, showed only the cursor, and then crashed. When I finally booted back up and checked the minidump file with WinDbg, it showed nvlddmkm.sys as the problem. A quick google search revealed the problem was with the Nvidia driver becoming unresponsive. I attempted all of the suggested fixes, including wiping drivers. A fresh install of the card's drivers had no success, so I attempted a fresh install of windows. Once again to no avail. I decided to try one last thing to check if the issue was the card itself by plugging in my old Galaxy card, listed above. The system ran fine with it and I did not encounter the BSOD again. With this I decided to move forward with a replacement of my EVGA GeForce GTX 650 card, which is about 2 and a half years old. However, what drove me to this forum was that upon booting up my computer tonight, about two nights after putting the Galaxy card in, my computer received a BSOD on start up. The source of which being none other than "nvlddmkm.sys."
This has me very worried that the issue causing this isn't my graphics card, but another part of my system. I have had very few issues with this custom built system, except for a faulty RAM stick. Could the issue be my motherboard, or my processor? Or is it possible my RAM could be bad? I've never had issues with my display drivers until now. Any and all help would be much appreciated. If you require more information (such as the minidump file), by all means ask. I'd like to get this issue resolved.
