Looks like it's something driver related (something nvidia, probably display) try updating your drivers or downgrading.
If you can, check your temperatures for your CPU, video card, etc because sometimes it's a result of overheating
Its nvidia yo. Did you recently update your drivers ? If so downgrade it. Bc new nvidia updates aren't good for old cards.
have you installed or uninstalled anything recently? What were you doing when you got BSOD? As Tony said, sometimes it can mess up a driver. Also, might want to run windows repair (from the installation cd), as if one of window's files got messed up, this would fix that.
It started when I patched League of Legends...
And I uhh, *ahem* don't have a windows installation cd...
I tried updating the video card drivers, still BSOD.
Try downgrading to an older version. As Drunk Cat said, new drivers + old graphics cards can equal bad things (even though the new driver supposedly works on your card)
Nezzie needs @Churma T-T
EDIT: Tried old drivers, just says it can't find compatable hardware...
EDIT2: Now the up-to-date ones say they're not compatable either D:
Try this one. Make sure you completely remove the current drivers you are using now, then install these. Do this all under safe mode. http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/71704/en-us
I was getting to Windows fine, sound was back, bg was back.
Started uninstalling NVIDIA stuff. Wanted me to restart after every uninstall.
Uninstalled 3 items, reset twice, BSOD.
Opened in safe mode again. 2 NVIDIA items had reinstalled themselves?
Can't uninstall in safe mode. Can't get to windows anymore.
If you download this you can check your temperature, https://www.piriform.com/speccy or hwmonitor. You should see where they are when the bsod occurs. (Unless of course you can't get in then...) Is your computer dusty? Has it been cleaned anytime in the past? Any fans not spinning.. etc.
Pretty certain its my graphics card at this point
EDIT: @PeNguiN I see nothing on here mentioning temperature. Also the BSOD isn't when i'm ON my PC, it's at startup. Every startup. Unless i'm in safemode or on my onboard graphics
Have you tried opening up your pc and looking at the graphics card to make sure it's not loose or that something may have burnt a little?
No because i'm fucking retarded and have no idea what i'm looking at.
I'm going to bed. PC problems are such stress -.-
Hello @Nezumi so the issue is with your video card. Looks to me that the GPU has traces which probably failed on it or it is overheating which you possibly can fix depending on the PCB layout of your card. I would unseat the card, if it has a fan on it, clean it out with canned air, re seat the card and see what happens. If it still fails, it is a bad Nvidia card, hit up the manufacture to see if they will replace it and if they won't then have @Tony the Tiger!! :grin: buy you a new one.
Also open your computer and take some photos and post them, I will point you to the video card.
may want to run chkdsk and just make sure a bad sector on ur hdd isn't corrupting your files. Simple before replacing hardware.
