Windows 7: BSOD, dxgkrnl.sys

20 Mar 2013   #1

BSOD, dxgkrnl.sys

Hello, i keep getting this error, my pc shut down and then i turn it on again, but it won't load, so i restart it and it finally works.
I tried this video to help me (How to Fix/Repair Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) - YouTube)
I found that dxgkrnl.sys causing that problem, it should be DirectX driver, or something. I'll add more info if you need it to solve this D:
It should have something with ntoskrnl.exe, i thought i should just delete it, but i read somewhere that it's dangerous
Also my pc becomes REALLY loud, tries to restart and then turn off. Do you think it can be because of overheating? (Then i try to turn it on, but it crashes while loading Windows)
