BSOD from Graphics card

Q: BSOD from Graphics card

Hi.

I have had an BSOD here coming from my Nvidia Graphics card.

I run the Widows 7 Ultimate 32 bit here.

Computer is an ASUS P5Q Deluxe mobo, and the Graphics card is a NVIDIA Gefore 7300 LE. RAM is 4G.

The driver is the latest from NVIDIA per their automatic indetification service.

I have attached the report from Windows Debug.

What can I do to handle the issue ?

Preferred Solution: BSOD from Graphics card

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD from Graphics card

From what I can tell, it's showing as a failed driver/no driver. Have you downloaded the latest driver from Nvidia's website? Try pulling the card out: power down and unplug, remove card and reboot, let windows install onboard gpu. Then power down again and unplug, reinsert the card and boot up. Make sure you have the latest driver and install that driver.

Hi guys,
Some time ago I purchased a Asus Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Graphics Card and immediately after installing it I encountered BSOD issues. I tried the numerous guides on how to potentially sort this online (uninstalling and reinstalling Nvidia programs/drivers in certain orders) but never fixed the problem. Sadly I lost the box and receipt, so it's now a paperweight.

Now, I decided to cut my losses and try a completely different card in the hope that the problem would no longer happen. Not wanting to use Nvidia again I opted for the Sapphire Radeon R7 250.

All was well for the first day, however I then got a BSOD. Sadly this has now continued time after time.

I tried getting Display Driver Uninstaller and uninstalling all the drivers that it allowed me to. I am currently running the PC with no graphics card driver (as far as I can tell) and I just have the basic look to my Windows 7. I came home today and once again I have had a BSOD.

My reason for wanting a new graphics card is that I'm running a dual monitor setup, when I'm on the on-board graphics card with a single monitor there are no issues at all.

Any help is hugely appreciated, thank you in advance!

Hi,

I've completed a new custom build, but have had problems with BSOD from the beginning with any installation of Intel Graphics drivers or the installation of any graphics card.

When I first completed the build, the XFX-7950 Black was installed. I booted to BIOS without issue, but when I inserted the Windows 7 (64 bit) it would boot through the windows logo screen but immediately BSOD right after going to the first install screen.

I removed the graphics card, and was able to complete the full Windows install without issue. I updated Windows and the drivers on the system but as soon as I installed the Intel 3000 Graphics driver, it would BSOD on every restart. I recovered back prior to the Graphics driver install and installed all other drivers. I updated the BIOS to the latest version.

I have reattempted the XFX 7950 multiple times in different slots, but with the same results. I also attempted my Radeon HD 4550 from my old computer but it gave the same results. It always boots through the Windows logo screen, but BSOD within a few seconds of reaching the password screen.

I broke down and installed Driver Whiz, which did detect multiple outdated drivers that I had not caught, but none of these fix the issues.

I've attached the requested zip. I don't think all BSOD's are showing up, as I've had to use recovery points after installed drivers didn't work. The last .dmp on 19 JUL was a Intel Graphics driver install attempt that I pulled off in safe mod... Read more

A:BSOD with install of Intel Graphics driver or install of graphics card

I recommend for future reference never to use driver discovery software like Driver Whiz. They have a propensity to install erroneous, buggy and/or outdated drivers. Finding drivers for your hardware should always be done manually.

Anyways, while I don't see any specific pattern for the crashes, I do see at least some of them are during disk I/O. That's when I immediately got suspicious of your Crucial SSD. If you have not already, the very first thing you should do when installing an SSD into a PC is to update your SSD's firmware, followed by your BIOS and any chipset/disk controller drivers. This is necessary as initial SSD firmware often has a habit of causing issues, which frequently is resolved when updating it.

If that all doesn't work, then it's time for some other hardware tests. Start with 7 passes of Memtest86+, followed by Torture Test on Blend for 9+ hours with Prime95. If those don't turn up anything, then replace either your motherboard (most likely culprit) or your SSD drive.

Long time lurker. And sadly my first post has to be about BSOD. =\

So last month i bought a new Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX760 to be exact. Not gonna lie when i installed it i did not get rid of my ATI drivers until a day later. I know bad. But anyways got rid of them and all went super well. Until 3 days later i got a BSOD Bad Pool Header. Ignored it the first time. Went well again for about 3 more days. Same thing BAD Pool Head. Then after trying random things from the net it went fine for a week. But then all of a sudden I get BSOD Memory Management(did the windows memory test all came back fine after i was able to get back on) .... Reboots then BSOD Bad Pool header. I then tried to just reinstall Win7 from my disc but my luck kept going and just got that error 0x00000024 or something say files corrupt. PLEASE HELP ME =\
Build as follow:

OS: Win7 Home 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
Ram: Corseair 8gig
MB Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H
Graphics: New one - Nvidia Geforce GTX 760 Old one - Radeon HD 6850

Also this is an Entire Costum build other than the HDD and Old Graphics Card (radeon HD 6850)
Side notes: Only happens when playing games for a while. And as of now i have the old card in now but even then every thing is all whacked. Cant open most the games on my computer. Most being all but Rift.
Need anything else just ask.

Hello, for the past couple months on my desktop, I have been receiving constants BSODS regarding various graphics drivers. Here is what I've already tried:
replacing the card entirely
updating the drivers from the ATI website

I have been getting multiple blue screen errors and I am about 80% sure that it's the graphics cards. I get these blue screens at complete random. Random such as completely idle on desktop with nothing running, restarting computer, putting computer to sleep, shutting it down, while play a game, etc.

A few errors I can remember are stop errors:

I launched assassin creed revelation and my PC just froze. After restart there was no bios screen but all fans were running and in my mobo only one LED was glowing(D1 was on and D2 was off and my mobo manual said that this is due to memory error). So I cleaned RAM and tried again but same problem. I removed graphics card and it booted successfully and works fine. So I guess the problem is with graphics card(HD4870).

And just a few minutes back I reinserted the graphics card and tried to boot. It didnt boot for a few mins but I just waited and after 3-4mins it booted. But there were some patches of pixels here and there on the screen. And while starting windows it crashed(BSOD). Due to the pixelated screen I could not read the BSOD properly. I again tried booting and again it didnt boot immediately but after a few mins and while loading windows again BSOD. I tried booting again and same result.

While searching google I saw lots of BSOD posted over here. So thought of posting. I think the graphics card is dying. Since the screen is pixelated I don't think the graphics card can be repaired. Or can it be repaired? I will be inclined towards repairing it if possible or else I need to buy a new graphics card. I am uploading the SF_Diagnostic_Tool zip file. Kindly confirm if the problem is with the graphics card alone or whether other components are also affected. Without the graphics card the PC works fine. No BSODs. So I guess only the graphics card is the culprit.

I've had my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card for about a month and a half now, and for that first month everything was working just fine, but the past couple of weeks I get what I first thought were random BSODs but after a while I noticed it was only happening during times when I was either using the GPU heavily (Gaming/Video editing and encoding) or when I was changing driver settings.

Hi Guys,
So I'm fixing up a laptop at work that is DRIVING ME UP THE WALL.
Basically, the laptop Blue Screens whenever I wake up from sleep mode. Seems like that could be simple enough to fix. But here's the other thing - is also happens at random, especially when I reinstall my Graphics driver.
Here are the things I have currently done in order to try to fix it.
- Manually set virtual memory
- Restarted in SAFE MODE, uninstalled graphics driver and reinstalled latest graphics driver (The laptop did not crash while installing the update in safe mode). When I returned to standard Windows 7, it still crashed on sleep.
- Attempted to remove/re-install graphics driver NOT in safe mode..blue screen occured.
-In SAFE MODE, ran Malware Bytes to search for issues. None were found.
- Updated the hard drives Firmware (Was running Agility OCZ 3 which has a known bug causing BSOD's) Still crashes.
- Ran memtests, chkdsk -r, prime95, sfc scannnow (Ran as Admin). No issues found.
- Removed RAM sticks and let them sit for a minute (A bit of a long shot)..still crashes.
The thing that I have not been able to do is go the the BIOS and change the power settings for Hybrid sleep to S1 which I heard was a good idea. There does not seem to be any options in the laptops BIOS to control any advanced power settings.

hey everyone, i keep getting blue screen and have tryed loads of things and have no idea how to fix it. another user on here said that it was the graphics card crashing so i have done the following completely removed graphics drivers with driver sweep and installed latest versions.
run a stress test with heaven d10 benchmark and it crashed within 30 secs each time.
i have also been told it could be the power supply which i thought before, so i replaced the original 500w with a new 650w around 3 weeks ago. any idea what i need to do now? i have uploaded the nessassary files.

A:BSOD new graphics card?

Yeah, you are getting a video TDR problem.
Given you've already taken the appropriate steps with the power supply and the driver.
I'm going to have to side with the card being the source of the issue here.
The only thing I can think to try software side, is running driver sweeper (the latest version it's no longer supported on guru3d.)
Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

and install the previous version of the nvidia driver. As the software debug does show that the nvidia kernel is what's crashing.
This could of course just be because it's sending instructions to the card and getting the wrong answers too.

Hey,

I keep getting the Blue screen of death when I use my new graphics card. Its a SAPPHIRE HD 3450 512MB.

I am currently using the one which came with my PC which is built into the board. I had Vista at the time put in the new card. I then installed the software from the disc included (the screen was slow responding until I installed the software) and I updated to the latest driver for it and after about 10 mins my screen went fuzzy then reset. I then got a report saying I suffered the BSOD.

So I took the card out, uninstalled the software then went onto the official Sapphire site and got it off there and redone it all and say thing. I then took the card out and left it in the box for 1 week.

Now iv upgraded to Windows 7 and re-done it all. This time, instead of seeing a fuzzy screen I actually saw the BSOD (I didnt before) and had to restart. I then got the BSOD again. It happens about 20 mins after the system is up and running.

The box says its vista compatible but it didn't seem to work. The card isnt second hand.

What can I do to get it running?
Thanks.
 

A:BSOD when I use my new Graphics card

Uninstall all the drivers you installed for it, then use Drivers Sweeper in Windows Safe Mode to remove any traces of them, download latest drivers from Ati site: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
Install card, install drivers, you should be good to go. If the problems still are there, you probably have a DOA card.

Note that you should also probably disable the onboard graphics from BIOS when you use the add-on card. Before doing so, try running your computer while in BIOS for about half an hour, just to check that it doesn't crash or make your screen fuzzy there.

So here's what happened. My mom, angry at my bad grades, banged my laptop against the ground while it was on. Later after getting it back from her I noticed some problems with it.

First the outer casing is messed up. I managed to kind of 'squeeze' the casing back into place. Probably kind of hard to understand so I'm attaching images of the outside of my laptop.

Next I noticed something else. My laptop screen would sometimes randomly turn black (sometimes freezing for a split second before it does) for a split second and reappear. Then a message would appear on the bottom saying that my graphics card driver (or something like that) failed and was restored. This started happening more and more.

Next, sometimes instead of my driver being recovered my laptop screen would turn black for a few seconds then I'd get a blue screen. I forgot what the blue screen said but I remember it said something about failing to recover my graphics card or something like that.

Now my computer won't even start up. I always get a blue screen while it's starting up and even if it does start up I get a blue screen shortly after it does. I've got a screenshot of the blue screen.

I'll be attaching images of the casing and blue screen shortly.

Model: Fujitsu AH532/G52
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
6 GB RAM
Intel Core i7-3612M CPU @ 2.10Ghz

Hi there,
 
I bought a used Dell Latitude E6520 a couple of months ago under rather dubious circumstances. When the guy I bought it from got it out from where it had been sitting, he tried to boot it, and it would almost immediately die in a BSOD. He thought it was a HDD issue, so I told him not to worry about it, as I was getting a 512GB SSD to put in it. After I got it home, I tried re-installing Windows 7 x64 on the original HDD, and it would work till Windows Update had installed all the newest updates. Then all of a sudden it would just die, and wouldn't re-boot. So, I just waited till I received my new SSD, then did a clean install, and voila, all my problems were gone! I didn't have any problems with BSOD, or slowness, or anything!
 
Until about a month ago...
 
All of a sudden, it has started acting up again. The first time, it just flashed a BSOD and re-started. No big deal. But the second time, when it tried to re-start, it showed an error: "No boot media found" That scared me! I realized that I hadn't made a backup for probably 2 months, and I was afraid it was all gone! But after letting it sit for a little while, I tried re-booting again, and thankfully, it worked! Needless to say, I immediately did a full backup of the SSD! After re-booting the second time the screen was all messed up, the resolution was set to 800x600, and when it finally booted, it "detected" the graphics card, and WU downloaded and installed the driver for it.

I had a previous thread where I had problems involving my old ATI graphics card, and it ended with having to replace the video card. I replaced the video card, and I'm still having some problems.

The card I have now is a Nvidia card, and when I try to run this Nvidia program to change the card's settings, my computer crashes. Not when I change the settings, but when I try to open the program. It's a little strange to me that I've been having GPU-related errors with two completely different video cards.

EDIT: I was looking up the errors and I guess the program (nTune) is known for causing these errors. I'm going to try another program.

Hey, so I just got my new stuff up, i7 930, x58 sli micro, 6gb corsair dominator ram and an ssd from intel.

I already have this graphics card; GTX260 c216

I havnt tested with other games at the moment, but I get the bluescreens when playing Battlefield Bad company 2, I can play for hours and then I suddenly get it. The Bsod message varies actually, sometimes its IRQL not less or equal, other times its pagefault in nonpaged area, or sometimes even "dx1mm.sys" error

I know it's the graphics card because I had same problem on my previous build (yes I did format after installing new hardware), but I didnt bother to ask for help for it before now.

When I used the nvidia driver 196.21, it the fps in the game was horrible. So right now I am using the beta driver 197.13 which works great except for the bluescreens (GOt bluescreens with the 196.21 aswell).

Well.. anyways. Heres the minidump file

This crash was caused by cng.sys. I would be extremely concerned as the only references I could find to it show it as a virus. I would run an in depth virus scan. After you have and nothing shows we can investigae any future bsod's

Hi,

I've had my current PC for about three years. Around this same time late last year, I had to replace my graphics card as it died out on me quite suddenly. My PC originally came with a 256 MB nVidia GeForce 8400GS, but I upgraded to 512 when my older card died out.

Since the card replacement, things were working fine up until just recently, when I've been having a random BSoD pop up. This has happened twice so far. Here's some info on the crash:

Hello,
I recently purchased parts for a new computer i built myself.
I have successfully installed windows 7 64bit on it and is running perfectly. I can do almost anything on my computer that isn't graphically demanding I.E. watch videos, browse the web, download files, etc:
But whenever i attempt to run any games, my computer instantly freezes and gives me a BSOD. The game will last about 2-4 minutes before crashing. I have a feeling that it is my graphics card that is giving me this BSOD because when i removed it and booted with the on-board graphics card, the games all ran and didn't crash. I have re-installed drivers, updated drivers, and moved the card to different slots, but all to no avail.
Any help or ideas is great appreciated.
By the way the card is an Nvidia GTX 660
Thank you for your time,
Masstec

To cut a long story short, I'd sent my computer off to Currys/PCWorld (where my dad works) for them to do a full diagnostic of my PC (because my graphics card was faulty a few months ago).

Through/by no choice of my own, I was given a new graphics card - an ASUS ATi Radeon EAH5770 CU core, 1GB GDDR5 (powered by a HD Radeon 5770 = not bad I suppose; at least it's much better than my old GeForce 8800GTS)

I found out it needed updating, and (I can't remember why or how I managed it but) I did that through Steam; but then I got a BSOD message

(perfmon.html is included in the zip file)

-Windows 7 X64
-Not the original OS (was Vista)

Title says it all. I installed a new graphics card, after first uninstalling the drivers and the ATI catalyst control center thing, shut down the pc, took out my old graphics card and put the new one in. Started up and within a few mins, I got a BSOD with the error for the following: wdf01000.sys
I'm rather worried that it might be the new graphics card, although I did also try to use my USB DVD R/W at the same time, which didn't load well, but I doubt its to do with it but here's hoping.
Although I've booted the PC again without the USB DVD plugged in and the graphics card still in, and it seems to be fine (around 20mins so far as of writing this). But better safe then sorry.

Hello,

Lately my ACER laptop has been resetting itself randomly. This has happened during playing a game, surfing the net, watching a video etc. Laptop shuts down, opens up again but nothing comes up on the monitor. Several seconds later the same thing happens. I'm not pressing any buttons at this point but the laptop goes into the cycle of starting and shutting down until monitor shows up again...or, I'm guessing, when the graphics card successfully kicks in.

The reason I'm posting this here in the BSOD forums is that when windows starts the following error message comes up (in Turkish but I assume it won't be a problem for you guys to get the gist):

You are right.

A stop ox116 is a display related issue. And you have the latest version of the display driver installed. So not altering it at the first time, but will do that too, if situation demands.

Make it sure that the hardware components are not overclocked.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Let us know the results.

Hello,

My boyfriends computer has been having some problems, I know a tiny bit about computers (more than bf anyway who basically only knows how to turn it on and off haha) so have been trying to fix it but having no luck. Whenever the graphics card is enabled then the computer will BSOD on startup. The only way to get into the computer is going into safe mode, disabling the card and then restarting. On the BSOD it says "attempt to reset display driver and recover from timeout failed" and the error "STOP 0x00000116" and something about "atikmpag.sys"

I've reinstalled windows from fresh multiple times and the error persists. I read somewhere else about editing the atikmpag thing and moving it or something, sorry I can't remember what exactly it was, but it didn't work. The graphics card drivers are updated and so is windows, but still the BSOD will come when drivers are enabled. The issue originally started when my bf was playing a game and it BSOD'd and wouldn't start up again

I've attached the zip file here if someone can please look at it and tell me what is wrong, do you think a new graphic card is needed as this one is dead?

Hello,

Recently, my pc is lagging so much, meaning everything is slow, clicking, opening files and all that. I thought it was my RAM or Processor, but the thing is it was my Graphics Card. Then just now I turned off PC and tried to get it back on, but sadly it won't boot up and only appearing on screen was "No Signal".

Then, I thought it could be my Graphics Card, you can see what I am using in my specs. So what I did was I removed my Graphics Card, and then put the plug into the VGA then I successfully boot up without any problems and lags. However, I cannot stay without Graphics Card, because I'm an online gamer and my game won't work without Graphics Card, it works with VGA but the game is very laggy and I cannot play anymore.

Now, I want to ask if the Graphics Card was dead or not and I have to replace or I just need to do something. I have attached the minidump file in Windows/Minidump folder. Also the SF Diagnostic.

I hope you could help me figure out my problem and what to do.

Thank you and best regards to all people here.

Edited:

I forgot to tell that after I removed my graphics card, I'm still receiving BSOD, my screen will crash then Blue screen then off.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
If these two tests come free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following... Read more

It looks like you are using the release candidate still. If you are using a crack to prevent it from expiring, it may be the cause of this trouble, but even if not, you should purchase the official version.

There's a similar thread already on here by someone else without reply but i'll try again.
Last week started getting problems, especially when playing media.
Gradually things got worse (black screens/BSOD's) until pixelation problems started and eventually i lost graphics. Took card (GeForce 8300GS) to friends who tried on his machine and still bad pixelation so concluded card was bad.
Today bought new card (8400GS.) Windows auto installed new drivers and prompted me to restart. Upon restart i got a BSOD when i should have got a login window. Stop 0x00000116 + an error code nvlddmkm.sys
I can boot in safe mode OK and i can also disable the driver from safe mode then restart windows normally and all is fine (apart from obv low end graphics.) So, i then installed a driver from nvidia website and tried again...... same problem (BSOD + Same error.) So i tried the driver on the disc that came with.... same problem
I took new card to friends and it works fine on his machine.

I'm running out of ideas. Can anyone help?

Cheers

Update:
Had a play with my ram. Took out 1 stick and rebooted PC..... worked fine, no BSOD
Swapped sticks and rebooted and again, no BSOD
So.... seems it's working only with 1 stick of ram and BSODing with 2.
Any ideas what this points to? Is it PSU? The PSU def seems quieter with only 1 stick.
Current PSU details:
(+3.3V & +5V = 115W max) Total output continuous shall not exceed 250 watts
This is gonna be a spare PC for d-loading music/movies and maybe playing media on TV at some stage. No gaming.

If it is a PSU problem????? could i get a different, less sapping graphics card rather than replacing PSU?

Welcome to TSF

There are no mini dump files

so
Click on Start > Right Click on COmputer > Properties > Left hand side Click on Advance system settings > Click on the Advanced tab > On the bottom you will see "Start up and revcovery > Click on Settings in that section > Change the "Write debugging information to "Small memory dump" Also uncheck "Automatically Restart"

Once that is done
I want you to download and run "Driver sweeper" Uninstall the Currently installed Video Drivers
Reboot
Download and Install latest drivers from Nvidia's website for your Graphics card
Run driver verifier for atleast 36 hours to see if there are any other BSODS follow the instructions you have already before posting and post the mini dump files

What is the return policy for your power supply? If its still returnable, i would return and get either XFX, Corsair, or Seasonics power supply 80+ 650w+ ( I would get a 750w 80+)

Anyway, my problem is simple, my laptop has a button to switch my GPU (Geforce) on, but it means only the card is on, but it does not mean in any way the computer will use the card.

In the old days (such as XP), the computer will always use the Geforce card...

So I am just wondering, anyway to force this to happen? Most games i play don't even use it and i feel a little frustrated to paid 300USD for a card that does nothing!

I tried doing the setup on the menu which is app by app, but it seems some app just have that option greyed out.

Also my Intel Card seems to be facing some issue to be honest and from time to time it kicks me out with BSOD (Memory Management > Hardware issue when diagnosed), or simply C++ Runtime library error.

Thanks a lot in advance

A:Dual graphics card - BSOD etc....

Alright, let me see if I'm understanding the situation correctly:

You want to use the dedicated card over the iGPU, correct? I'm not entirely sure how laptops handle the switching process, but you might want to try disabling the iGPU from within the BIOS. However, despite having just recommended that let's clear up a few things.

1. Fill out your system specs. It'd be a lot easier for me (and everyone else) to help you.
2. Are there any drivers for the card installed?
3. What was the cause of the BSOD? I'd hazard a guess at it being IRQL Not Less Or Equal (driver related).

Just recently, things such as YouTube videos or just general games have started freezing up my computer. While playing Synergy (Half-Life 2 mod) my computer constantly froze, until it crashed with a BSOD but i do not recall the code, and i would prefer not attempting to create a BSOD again.

I have uploaded the (hopefully correct) ZIP file created by the "dm log creator"

The past two days now I've been constantly getting distorted horizontal lines across my screen that frequently lead to BSOD, as well as an error message about my video card:

Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver ATI Radeon Family stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

I've tried reinstalling all the catalyst graphics drivers from 9.3 up to the latest 9.11 (using mobilitymodder for anything past 9.3). I also tried uninstalling everything and letting Win7 find the driver for me but still I get the same problems every time a graphics driver is installed. It's only when I run in safe mode or with no graphics driver installed that there's no problem (except for the screen being huge and no areo).

Is this really a driver problem, or is my video card dying? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm a student and NEED this laptop to work. I took a screen capture of the information (also attached a .txt file with dump info):

I recently installed a new gtx970-sc in my gaming rig. After random amounts of time playing games (usually over an hour), the graphics driver "nvlddmkm" stops responding. Most of the time the driver recovers but a few times it has crashed my computer to where my monitor receives no signal, while the computer is still running but frozen. Even if the driver recovers, I have to restart the game b/c it causes the game to crash, losing my progress in the game.

I have used ddu and did a clean install of my graphics driver.
It happens with at least 2 different games(Witcher 3, GTA:V). It hasn't happened with League of Legends yet (although i only played a few games), and I haven't had much time to play other games.
I am using Afterburner to under-clock the card back to factory settings. It seems to reduce the occurrences of the problem slightly, but it doesn't remove the problem.
I have ran FurMark Burn-in test and it ran just fine, 34 FPS @ 74?C max.

I suspect either it is a faulty GPU or my PSU cant handle the power requirements with the new card(even though it meets the 500w requirement). I went ahead and ordered a new PSU, but it's not here yet, so I cant rule that out. If someone would take a look at my dump files and let me know what they think the problem is I would appreciate it.

After one of the crashes(on 5/25) I noticed the event viewer said windows did a bugcheck.

Hi, im kinda new to forums but i need some information about my PC built.

two weeks ago i bought myself a MSI r9 290x Gaming and tried everything to got it running. (drivers bios update etc). it says its bsod error 124. my old gpu works just fine (radeon hd 7850).

now the weird part. ive tried this card in three differend pc's from some friends and it gives the same error. now i RMA'd the card and got a new MSI r9 290x (the firm tested the card and said it was faulty) and this one it also giving me this same error. the error occurs only when doing things like, starting up a game it crashes almost immediatly, when surfing on the internet is also crashes. (like when downloading Directx driver of streaming youtube)

the error code does not appear when i disable the card or when i boot it into safe mode or when the AMD drivers are not installed.

does anyone know what i can do?
my specs are:
CPUcooler: tt Spin Q VT
GPU: MSI r9 290x 4GB gaming
CPU: AMD FX-8530
Housing: Tt Commander MS-I bk ATX
MB: MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) 760G RGVSM
HDD: 500GB
RAM: D3 8GB 1600-11 DragonRAM K2 GEI
PSU: Coolermaster B700watt

I got the dumpfiles here, they are all exactly the same.

P.S the second MSI r9 290x gaming has been rma'd to the firm and came back with positive test results.

A:BSOD 0x124 only with new graphics card

Hi, Tokke89 and welcome to Seven Forums, I will try to help you if I can. A 0X124 is a general Hardware error and it gives no specifics of what the hardware is. It can be caused by failing Hardware or by a bad driver making hardware act like it is failing.

Could I get you to complete your hardware specs in the lower left of your last post. Just click the 'My Hardware Specs' and there will be a link to update them. What I would like is Manufacturer and model of you hardware so I can look it up if needed, and specifically the PSU and CPU Cooler. Please add those as well as any other hardware connected to your computer.

I would ask your friends to test the card in their machine again for a couple of days and try to test their card in your machine.

Also, if you don't mind, please run the BSOD posting instructions
www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/96879-blue-screen-death-bsod-posting-instructions.html#option2 and upload the file here, it is much easier for us. This will tell you how.

Hello, this is my first attempt at making a thread on these forums, so bear with me
Ever since I have upgraded from my trusty HD 6790 setup (2 in crossfire) to my GTX 780 (evga sc acx edition, if that matters) it has been a nightmare.
I originally had Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my PC, it was hard to get anything done, it would BSOD pretty much all the time, and just getting logged in was a pain, I tried multiple drivers and even tried an older driver with an inf mod.
Upgrading to Windows 8 made things a bit better, but games were jerky, crash-y and froze alot; formatting my data drive sorted this. I still got alot of random BSOD's until I upgraded my motherboard and cpu.
I went from an ASUS P7P55D-E PRO with an i3 530 to a Gigabyte Z87X-D3H-CF with an i7 4770k
I'm currently running the latest driver, I have also tried different drivers with my new setup, apart from the older one as I can't get it to work on 8.1.
My BSOD's occur every few hours, the bug check string changes alot, but the crash address is pretty much always ntoskrnl.exe (got this in win7, too)

This is the best my pc has ever ran with this gpu, crashing every few hours. I tend to just be browsing the web, or leaving it idle when I goto sleep when it BSOD's.

The only thing I can think of now is a bad power supply or bad card, although I highly doubt this as my psu ran fine with my crossfire setup + is 750w, then again, it isn't the best psu ever.
It's a powercool 750w psu, not modular, I can't find it online. ... Read more

Hey guys, I'm pretty computer savvy, however I am having issues with BSODs. I've run memtest, I've run primetest, I've run Super Pi. They all come back with no errors. I've updated to the latest drivers, device manager shows no issues. I've installed a new SSD because I thought it was the Hard drive failing.
Still BSODs with a clean copy of Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 10.
I am not overclocking... Oh I bought the new processor, put it in. And then returned it and got a new one because I thought the processor was faulty.
I've run it on the onboard graphics and taken out the graphics card cause I thought it may have been that, it wasn't. I've switched the memory around in the slots. I've run SFC and CHKDSK... I ran Driver verifier... I am at a loss at what to do. The funny part is that I'm an IT major and can't fix his own damn computer haha any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.

A:PC has BSOD when using Integrated Graphics Card

Hello and welcome Annie yes my friend you have a graphics driver problem. Now to get details of the system see my ditty
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example. Though a Google for that NVidia you quoted gives me the motherboard but try it anyway.


Disregard the top bit and look at Other components and my pic just click on the square for example motherboard and it will give you in depth details model serial no etc etc

PS Have just found this it is probably the driver you need NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 307.83 Driver WHQL now try it but you may have to uninstall the other but try it first.
