Windows 7: BSOD possibly from Nvidia nvlddmkm.sys Driver

Well, I guess if no one has any further suggestions, I will try reinstalling windows 7 soon.

I currently have no other suggestion then my focus on the PSU since I would like to rule that out.

It seems as though something else is causing BSOD now....I started computer today, turned away for a minute, the computer was sitting on desktop not running anything, and the computer BSOD again.
This time from ntoskrnl.exe, Critical Object Termination. This happened twice last week when I was attempting other diagnostics and fixes. I attempted to zip the minidump file and it failed telling me I do not have access.....

With all these issues adding up, I think it's probably best just to reinstall windows...then I'll have a better idea if my GPU is truly the original culprit.

You could try a reinstallation of Windows, but I'm familiair with the 0xF4 crash as a hard drive crash although this time it could be something different as your hardware is a bit old and old hardware can suddenly fail.

Well, I tried reinstalling Windows 7, and upon installing the video drivers from my EVGA install disc that came with my GPU, I immediately started getting the nvlddmkm.sys STOP 116 BSOD again....which is how this all started.

I installed BlueScreenView again, but it doesn't load any files, so I can't post that....but managed to get a picture with my phone

Looks like I'm screwed... So the question is, which components do I need to replace? The GPU, the Motherboard, the Hard Drive? Everything? I'd rather not have to pay the local repair shop to diagnose it if I can get away with simply buying replacement components myself, if possible...

Look at all that artifacting on the screen. Thats a sign of bad VRAM or dying GPU.

Do you have a store near you where you can return the graphics card within X number of days for no penalty?

That way you could grab another card, slap it in, see if it works and if it does you can keep it.

If you still get the failures you know its not that card and if you want, you can return it.

The artifacting is only from me taking pictures of the screen with my iPhone. It is not visible at all on the screen itself.

A 0x116 could be caused by the PSU when the GPU doesn't get enough power, this happens with a failing/faulty GPU or one that can't provide enough power.
My point, try a PSU that certainly does work.

Well, I might be able to convince my brother to bring his PC over for me to test my GPU. I believe his has an older Nvidia card, like a 450 TI or something. If I put my 560 TI in, is there any risk of it installing conflicting drivers or risk of other damage to his PC? I've installed components before, so I'm not worried about me physically damaging anything, just any corruption to my brothers computer.


Also, if I'm forced to buy a new GPU, I want to get a newer model. Is there a website or anything that can tell me what GPUs my motherboard could handle?

You say it, an older GPU, I would first check if it is compatible with your system and otherwise (your GPU compatible with his system) before doing anything at all.

Pick Parts, Build Your PC, Compare and Share - PCPartPicker is a good site where you can check most things.
