So basically it happened a few months back. From the blue I kept having these blue screens while playing games that usually wouldn't have caused any problems. I can play some games fine, but others make me crash after a good fourty minutes or so. When I get a BSoD the sound stutters, the monitor goes black and looses signal and I have to restart my computer. I suspect there's something wrong my with nvlddkm.sys driver (because the BSoD sometimes tells me that something was wrong with this driver), but I've tried updating, removing it and whatnot without any success.

I'm experiencing the same problem as you, but it seems to be only in Civ V. I believe it's a driver issue(I believe). What games does it happen in? I'm currently in talks with EVGA if I should RMA or not, so I'll let you know if my RMA helped.

World of Warcraft, Sims 3, Team Fortress 2 and Witcher: Assassins of The Kings.

Odd thing is, I experienced the same problem with Left 4 Dead 2, but after entering "-w 2014" in the game bootstrap parameters it stopped crashing... (Read it somewhere on a L4D2 forum).

I've been scouring forums left and right about BSOD issues related to games, and for the most part I believe it to be directly associated with nvidia drivers being buggy(most recent ones). I'm still waiting on my crashdump analysis, but I think trying older drivers on a clean install will help.

also, im not sure about your drivers, but make sure you choose "clean install" and don't install the 3D or HD audio portion of the drivers. I've heard they cause some issues as well.

I use DriverSweep to smoothly remove my drivers. I uninstalled my drivers once again and put in the newest Nvidia drivers and I was able to play for two hours straight, until I got a BSoD. I'm suspecting that it might be my computer overheating, but I'm not sure.


Going to try using older drivers.

OK. I tested my temperatures and my GPU and Processor (CORE)'s temperature is skyhigh! GPU clocks for over 70 degrees Celsius while in idle mode and my core up to 55 degrees Celsius. I tested playing some games (World of Warcraft in this particular instance) and my GPU went up to over 100 degrees Celsius, now that's a lot and may be the reason I'm getting BSoD.

To be frank, I've never really opened my chassi and cleaned out the dust simply because I haven't paid attention to it seeing as it's more of a casual gaming computer of mine and my other one is my work computer which I tend to take more care of. I've had the computer for two years or so, so tomorrow morning I'm going to clean all the fans and whatnot, see if the temperature lowers, or perhaps it's too late to save the computer (seeing as overheating shortens the life length of the hardware!!)...


Wish me good luck guys.

You're getting BSODs because of your temps. 100 C is really pushing it. Try cleaning it out with some compressed air.

Hi -

All BSODs have bugcheck 0x116 = Video TDR timeout & name NVIDIA.

If the system is still under warrantly, contact the system manufacturer.

Run Speccy so we can see temps - Download Speccy 1.11.256
- "File" | "Publish Snapshot" | Paste URL into your next post

Also, virtual devices such as Elby are not helping you here.

You should update to Windows 7 SP1

Regards. . .
