Windows 7: BSOD after installing new power supply

BSOD after installing new power supply

My last PSU went out and once I installed my new one I am getting BSOD while playing TERA (MMO game). It happened twice within 30 minutes of playing. I never had blue screen errors until now. I am skeptical that the cause is something outside of the PSU replacement but I won't over look the possibility. I've analyzed the dump files but I am not sure how to fix these. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello BHoffman.

If it is really caused by PSU replacement, it will not be traced inthe dump; but shuffling with another available PSU may lead you to some direction.

The dumps somehow indicates to the Display driver.
Code:
fffff880`025b0c68  fffff880`04952b39Unable to load image nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
 nvlddmkm+0xb4b39
And the driver is old, also it is somehow problematic.
Code:
fffff880`0489e000 fffff880`05345000   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image path: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image name: nvlddmkm.sys

I would suggest you to install version 314.22 WHQL and see how it runs.

I've already tried updating drivers to 320.49 as I seen same thing you did. Also, I didn't have any of these issues with anything 4 days ago before my power supply went out. I ran prime95 and all good there. Reseated all connectors then ran kombuster for 30 minutes without it crashing or any signs of bad graphics card, then assumed a lose wire was the culprit. Started gaming for about a hour and then the blue screens resumed again. I'm attaching more dump files that have occurred since my initial post.

Decided to just return this cheapo PSU and get a silverstone 700w. Atleast then I'll know I have a reliable brand. Will update if problem persists or not.

After returning the PSU and installing the new one, I didn't receive any BSOD until today (6 days). Seems to only happen when I try to start gaming. I recompiled logs from diagnostic tool. If anyone has insight on how to fix this would be appreciated. Thanks

Uninstalled ATI Catalyst and all seems to be working fine for now. Will update if more BSOD continues

Onboard GPU is AMD. I uninstalled and did not update those drivers due to me never using it. I noticed after reviewing my dump files, that one of them mentioned an ATI driver.

Hi,

Just to clear up any confusion, your on-board GPU is not AMD for that motherboard
according to ASUS : M4A78T-E - Motherboards - ASUS

Your on board GPU is a: Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 3300
PCIe Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
CPU: AMD Socket AM3 ;Phenom™II /Athlon™II /Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
Chipset: AMD 790GX/SB750

There is only one update for the ATI Radeon, which is dated 2009 and I suspect is the one you have installed,
but you may try to update: M4A78T-E - Motherboards - ASUS

Hope this helps

cheers

Dave
