Windows 7: Getting crashes again while playing games.

Getting crashes again while playing games.

So I have been getting a lot of crashes recently.

I just bought a new hard drive because my old one was giving me problems.
Reinstalled windows 7 (64-Bit)
Installed drivers and everything.

I honestly think my card is overheating since there is absolutely no cooling what so ever in my case.

I opened up the panel and have a fan on the highest speed blowing cool air into the open panel.

But I think my card is overheating.

Please give me details on this blue screen and I would love to have this fixed as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance,
Cherry

You're using driver version 326.41 which is in the BETA stage.


Roll back your drivers to a more stable release, I suggest 314.22.
Download | 314.22
When installing select Custom Settings (Advanced) and uncheck:
  • 3D Vision (all of them).
  • HD Audio.
  • Nvidia Updates.
  • Don't install Geforce Experience.
  • Do check Preform a clean installation.

Now as for your lack of cooling:

Download Speccy and post a screenshot.
  • One while idle.
  • Second while under load.

Launch Speccy and let it sit at the desktop, while playing a game for 20 odd minutes or so tab out and take a screenshot.

I started crashing again after reinstalling the drivers.

I even updated to 320.49 drivers.

I think it's my graphics card now.

Can you elaborate about what was happening during the past four days?
Also upload a new scan of SFDT.

Well sometimes I just straight crash and other times I crash to the desktop where it says. Nvdia Kernel Mode driver has stopped working and windows has recovered.

Anyways here is the folder.

You didn't follow my suggestion about posting Speccy's summary window.

-========================-



RAM is a possible culprit.
  • Follow this tutorial about Memtest 86+.
  • The test is an overnight test, let it go through 8 consecutive passes.
Note   Note
Pay close attention to Part 3 of the tutorial is errors are found.
