Windows 7: How can I pin down, and if possible fix this BSOD error?

How can I pin down, and if possible fix this BSOD error?

Hi guys, this may be rather long-winded but if you would read through all the information before replying I would appreciate it, as it may answer some questions you may have.

I have been experiencing these bluescreen errors for a couple of months now, and have tried many solutions to pin down the problem, all with only temporary success if any at all.

The computer I'm experiencing them on is optimized for gaming, and is mainly what I use it for. These bluescreen errors only occur in newer games, I.E they do not occur outside gaming or when playing older games.

I've checked the mini-dump, and each time I appear to have a different problem. The first time I checked it essentially told me that it was a memory problem, stating that memory was referenced, but a bad address stopped this from happening, and caused the crash. "Module name: Memory Corruption" (which would be a hardware issue).

The latest check says it is a driver problem. Unfortunately I no longer have either of the dump files, but I will upload them when I experience the problem again. The dump file essentially said that a driver was detected as suspicious, and windows shut down to avoid any further damage. I believe this driver to have been the Nvidia graphics driver that I re-installed back when I originally thought a driver problem was the only cause, though I never experienced this error with it before.

I understand my descriptions weren't very clear, but as I said, the mini-dump files have since been lost, though I'll upload them if the problem occurs again. Any help you can provide would be appreciated, thanks.

How old the graphics card is, and its brand/model?

You may change the priority settings of the games, set texture etc to low or medium as a test.

Are you overclocking? If so, get rid of overclocks and see if anything changes or not.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Also, is the power supply adequate? Make it sure. And monitor the temps too, using Speccy.

For the next time, let us see the dumps, coz a stop 0x50 causes due to various reasons.

The card is an Nvidia Geforce GTX 560, and has been in use for about 5-6 months now. I'll upload the next dump I get ASAP, and run a few tests with furmark. Thanks for your reply.

ntorkrnm.exd - What is it, and how can I fix it?

Hey all.

Maybe some of you saw my post yesterday about experiencing blue screens frequently over the past couple of months, the description I gave was unclear, and wasn't of much use.

However, I now have something more solid to go by. Using software known as "bluescreen view" I have been able to to track down the source of my bluescreen error to a driver known as ntorkrnm.exd

After searching this up on Google, I have found absolutely nothing to do with it. It's as if the driver doesn't exist . If you can provide some help as to what it is and how I can fix this issue, it would be appreciated.

OS Windows 7 home premium, as you can see on the side. It's a relatively new PC, only 5-6 months old.
