Have you checked that 'automatically restart' is not checked in 'Startup and recovery'

l have the same error. Only my PC just goes off with no warning at all and it will do it everytime l log in to windows and in about the same period of time....

l have not yet found an answer but l was thinking in run the elevated command prompt and run the System file checker.

Hi and welcome

this one is pretty straight forward. Probable cause was your v ideo driver and specifically the nvlddmkm.sys file.

You should use their un-installer to remove all the fragments of this driver, Then download and install a fresh copy and install it

If you are overclocking stop

Let us know if you need help
