Windows 7: Random Bluescreens - ntoskrnl.exe (Computer is really loud while BSOD)

04 Mar 2013   #11

Windows 7 64 bit Professional

I guess I found the problem..

There was a problem between the PCI-E of the power supply and the video card.. I disconnected it, cleaned the dust and connected it again.. could this be the reason?

I had 3 BSOD in a row after booting W7. After the third BSOD the screen said, that i have to plug in the power or something like that ..

But I still don't know if it's the problem of the PCI-E cable or the video card.. did anyone have this problem before?

Hi Blizzii,

The 'power supply' message reflects an issue with either the inability of the 'Power Supply Unit' to meet the power requirement of the graphic card; or the graphic card not getting sufficient power due to either a loose physical connection, faulty power supply unit or a damaged cable/connector. Please ensure that the physical connections are properly seated. You may want to refer to the 'Installation Manual' of the display adapter: (You may want to check safety instructions in the manual)

Please share the make/model of the Power supply unit being used. As I stated in my previous post, try running the display through the 'Integrated display'; should give us a fair idea about the 'Motherboard health'. You may also try using the 'nVidia GTX 660 TI adapter' with another PC, if available. That may help you to isolate the 'GPU' as the possible cause of failure. You may also want to check if you could arrange another 'Power Supply Unit' to test with this unit. It will clarify your doubt about the power cables/connectors being the culprit.

Do reply with the findings.
