PC black screen and back (lockup). Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped

Hi, my problem is that when i play games like Call of Duty and WoW my pc sucks for a bit and comes to normal. It shows "Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding...." but in games such as League of Legends it runs normal. I ve changed the Hard Drive and CPU fan and 4 giga ram recently. The Processor : Intel 2 Duo E4600 2.40ghz. So what can i do..?

Bottleneck is probably combo of your CPU, [what video?] and motherboard chipset. [southbridge/northbridge which effects it all]

I'd try upgrading the chipset drivers and BIOS of your motherboard, found on your motherboard's web site, FIRST.

That CPU is a bit low for gaming, LoL is probably well optimized code and lower requirements as a result.

Not knowing all your hardware.... Fill in the specs, you can run msinfo32.exe from Start | search box and get the info there. Video card will be listed under Components | Display.

Guessing without it, that you could use a video card and CPU upgrade, that CPU is circa 4Q/'07 so it has seen better days, whole system replacement is probably in order, to catch up to 2013 gaming.

Looking on newegg just for an idea, this is the only LGA775 slot CPU (same slot type as a E4600) even available, and it's a refurb: (plus no guarantee your motherboard supports it, without looking it up.)

If your motherboard even has a PCI Express x16 slot, what version is it, 1.0/1.1/2.0? will likely limit a video card choice, also, let alone the PSU in it.

You are pretty light with that GT430 video card for Direct-X centric games, to see how bad, compare it to mine here, I assumed that was a OEM GT430, there were two other choices, likely matters very little:

GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 7950 3GB – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

Mind you, ^ I have a top tier card.

Even jumping to a old Nvidia mediocre GT460:

GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 460 1GB – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

or

mediocre Radeon HD 7770:

GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 7770 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

Just know you likely need higher Watt PSU as well, if you get a new video card.
PSU Calculator here, get the video card watts off that hwcompare listing.

TDR wise, hmmmmm

Or did you mean Data Transfer Rate: DTR

It throws a wobbly when a GPU takes longer than 2 seconds or something to render a frame and the driver crashes. It stops the whole computer from crashing when it does happen though. You can disable it in the registry, but I wouldn't advise this as if you're getting serious problems with it, implementing a workaround won't really help matters much.

What you could do is try a full driver reinstall with the latest Nvidia drivers.

Download Driver Sweeper and the latest Nvidia drivers

Uninstall graphic drivers.

Boot into safe mode and run Driver Sweeper

Boot back into Windows once that's done and install the new drivers and check the "Clean install" option and see how you get on.
