Windows 7: BSOD Skyrim. BCCode 0x000000d1

BSOD Skyrim. BCCode 0x000000d1


As I'm playing Skyrim my displays will show lots of fancy colours at times, and sometimes white squares and sometimes it will BSOD. The time I can play is random, everything between 5 minutes to a few hours.
I've got my display drivers up to date, and my graphics card is around 60-70C while playing.
It only happens in Skyrim for me.

All information provided

I would like some help tracking down the faulty driver that is causing it (I think it's a driver, that's what googling 0x000000d1 gave me anyhow)

Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard.

I am guessing you have updated the nvidia graphics driver very recently? I would suggest you to go back to an earlier one, that was stable.

And, try to reduce the game preference levels to normal or minimum.

Also , take the test.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark also strongly recommend to uninstall winaso registry optimizer. Any such programs are not needed, but troublesome.

Thank you!

Yeah I did it last week at some point. Have been trying a couple of older drivers but they seem to be worse than ever.

I already reduced them to normal, haven't tried minimum yet though.
My GPU temp never exceeds 75C while playing either.

I took the stress test, results attached.

I've got Skyrim running atm, tabbed out and nothing happens right now, but if I enter the game again, it'll almost right away show me all the pretty colours before the screens turns black and I come back to Windows telling me that my Graphics Drivers crashed.
I dunno if that says anything about my problem...


EDIT: It's solved. Turned out to be that the graphics card was given to little power from the PSU.
I gave it some more and haven't had a crash nor a hint of one since.
Thanks for you help though Arc! It's really appriciated when someone shares their knowledge!
