Windows 7: BSoD caused by nvlddmkm.sys

Yes, you'd need to do the backups recommended in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Read it to know what's involved, and ask back any questions.

Right now I don't have how nor where to backup all the info here, is there any other way to check what's the issue? Or would you recommend to do this step right away?

You should always have your data backed up in case of HD failure. Here is free method to Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with Skydrive - Windows 7 Forums

Once the files are backed up I would do the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If the problem persists after reinstall you'll know its a hardware issue and can deal with that then.

For what you're experiencing you should try to burn them as soon as possible, it is always nice to have backups.

It is relatively easy to burn files of any sort to removable medium such as USB Flash Drives or CD/DVD "R", "RW's".
  • Place the medium of your choice in its respective drive.
  • Open Explorer
  • Pick the folders/files you want to copy and drag them to the drives location.
  • You should see a pop up asking you if you want to burn or add more files.
  • When satisfied, click on burn, let the burn progress until finished.
  • Repeat until finished with all the folders/files you need to save.

USB Flash Drives vary in size and you could purchase one to fit the amount of files in GB's you need to copy.
Here's one from CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - for $15.00USD
Staples from 15 to 60 USD i.e. 500Gb divided by 32GB = 16 flash drives

DVD's will only hold 4.7GB of data, but they are somewhat more durable than flash drives. Staples DVD+r's
Again you would have to match the amount of GB's you need to burn to the amount of DVD disks you would need. i.e. 500Gb divided by 4.7GB = 107 disks

I only used 500GB as a reference point yours may be larger or smaller.

I see greg just posted, the skydrive is another excellent option, for first time users it is limited to 7GB, but you can purchase more storage if needed.

Thank you both for replying again. I know how to do backups and all that and I try to make backups of certain info since it took me a long while to get it all just to lose it at a HD failure, the issue here is that I have, at least, 70 gb of info that I need to backup but I have no dvds to burn it into nor enough Flash drives to back up everything and I don't have the money to buy either of them right now ^^;

I'll see if I can get enough dvd disks to burn all the data soon and I'll try the reinstall once I get them

The practical modern method to back up that much data is an external HD or another internal HD.
