Hi,

I attached a screen shot of the Furmark stress test and I can't really tell what it's telling me but the numbers (except 'frames') didn't seem to change much...

Also, here is the Speccy link:

This system is overheating.
Attachment 337410
And this heat may cause BSODs for sure.

Dismantle the computer. Clean the inside very carefully. Clean all the air vents and fan grills so that it can blow the hot air out efficiently.

While re-seating, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.



If you cannot do it yourself, get it done by some local tech.

Also get a cooling pad for the laptop. It will control the heat upto some extent.

Let us know the situation after it is done. Better let us see another speccy screenshot.

Hello,

My laptop cooling pad arrived today and the temperature went down about 20 C. I will update you on how it goes. In the meantime, I just have a quick question, are there any NVIDIA driver versions that won't crash? Especially because my laptop doesn't crash when I don't have a NVIDIA driver installed... It's just really slow. Uninstalling it fixes everything, but with the NVIDIA driver, the games run much more smoothly.

Nvidia driver (display as a whole) may crash due to a lot of reasons, and the driver itself is only one of them. As you are asking, I can say you that I have noticed a driver that never crashed on itself. NVIDIA 314.22 WHQL. But that is old nowadays.

If you want, you may give it a go. But if display failed with this driver too, then you and we have to understand that the source of the issue is not the driver.

** ATM I would suggest you to observe the situation after the reduction of system temperature.

Hello,

I have had no BSOD crashes. You sir, are a genius. If a crash does occur, I'll try out the different driver and if the problem persists, I'll come back to this forum. Thanks man

Best,
