Windows 7: Yet another nVidia BSOD thread

Yet another nVidia BSOD thread

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a driver issue:

My Dell laptop was been running stably for about 3 years.

I was using my computer today when I got a random BSOD, and I recognized the nVidia driver name. Whenever I tried to restart Windows normally, I get the same BSOD right after Windows starts to load.

I restarted Windows in safe mode, uninstalled the display driver, and then ran DriverSweeper to make sure everything nVidia was gone. Restart. Windows starts fine in normal mode, using the Standard VGA driver.

I went to nVidia to download the latest drivers (v280.26). I installed the latest driver without any extras (ie - just the "Graphics Driver" and not 3D Vision or nView), and did a "clean install" which overrides any profiles and uses the default display settings. Restart. Same BSOD on restart, every time.

Now I'm just using the default windows "Standard VGA Driver." Windows is running stably.

Anything else I can try? I think this may just be my GPU going down in flames.

Computer:
Dell Latitude D830
Quadro NVS 140M
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit



Edit: Computer is 3 months out of warranty ><

Hi Tempered please uninstall the 280.26 version of the driver with driver sweeper again and use an older version of the nvidia display driver that you know worked. It is my opinion that Nvidia's newest driver has some serious issues with it. I don't think your gpu is going bad but rather just a buggy driver that's all..

Hmm... I'll try. Note that I was using the "old" drivers (I want to say 195.xx, but I'm not 100% sure) when I got the first BSOD, and then BSOD on startup every time. That was only the reason I tried to update to a newer version, and that's why I suspected a hardware issue.

I will try older driver versions from the nvidia archives, though. Thank you again.

Yeah that would be a place to rule out from, cause many people here with the same driver have been having video issues..

I tried several drivers (185.85, 195.62, 260.99, even the original Dell driver: 175.xx). Same thing every time. BSOD with normal windows startup.

I guess this means a hardware issue.
