BSOD help!

Ok, I've been getting nvlddmkm.sys BSODs 5-90 minutes into playing Mass Effect 2 on my new computer. Any ideas on what's wrong with my computer?

Before we start scouring the dumps have you updated your gfx drivers or removed and re-installed them yet, if not then thats where i would start, go to nvidia website and obtain the latest for your hardware

All dumps report 0x116 error, have a look here for a bit more info, defo a gfx issue

Hi and welcome all of these crashes are virtually identical. All were probably caused by your video driver. The system attempted to re-start but the car did not restart quickly enough

I would
Download and install a fresh driver and run a \
system file check
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

If you are overclocking stop
I would also download Gpu-z to keep track of the video card temps

Good luck
