Hello again! My PC just BSOD'd again. It is showing the same nvl something.sys error again. And the fan is still on the blow fast then normal routine.
Please help again.  :smiley: Thank you as always.

@karan: I only bought this at 2009/2010 so I can't really do that.

Really slammed today so I didn't have time to check, but I forget, is the video card onboard? or is it a separate card?

Reason why I ask is nvlddmkm.sys is a nvidia driver file, most likely for graphics.

So perhaps a bad driver, or a bad video card.
If the video is onboard then it would mean a bad motherboard.

Thats just it. If a PSU isn't providing enough power it can do the same thing!

The fun part of finding the problem :tongue:

So before we go the bad motherboard route we need to replace the power supply just to test. Any chance you can get your hands on one from another system?

Without having parts to swap and test it is going to be really hard to pinpoint which part is causing the trouble   :sad:

I'm really sorry. :sad: BUT here is something urgent that will help a lot! Now my PC is turning off by itself! Yes turning off! Happened 3 times just in the same hour or so or less. Could it be Windows or hardware? :omg:

Just turning off could be motherboard or power supply.

That is most likely hardware, just like Shane said. I don't have time right now, but I give you details on how to make sure your computer is set to display an error message (BSOD) tomorrow and after that is working you can see if a blue screen comes up. If nothing comes up even after that is set up then that points to it being the PSU or motherboard as well.

When starting up windows you need to hit the F8 key.

When the boot options for windows comes up you can choose disable auto restart.

If you can get inside windows then do this,
(Assuming your on Vista or Windows 7)
Right click on computer and choose properties.
When that opens click Advanced system settings on the left.
On the advanced tab at the bottom is startup & recovery. Click settings for it.
In here is a check box for automatic reboot. Turn that off.


Now this is for what Evan was going to show you. But if I understand right you computer was already showing the blue screen. And your computer isnt rebooting it is totally turning off. Correct?

Thanks Shane for telling him what to do. That is exactly what I was going to instruct him to do and I was thinking the same thing about it just turning off. I just wanted to cover all bases.

Yes Shane! It just shuts down then when I turn it on Windows says it shutted it down or it just recovered from an unexpected shut down. Also, no BSOD when it turns off. I will change the settings now. What do I do next?

Start saving for replacement parts :wink:

You have bad hardware. Either motherboard or power supply. No way to tell without swapping them out.

UPDATE! I recently opened up my PC to repair my out of sync optical drive and discovered a dust full of dust inside the PC. So I decided to CAREFULLY wipe them out making sure I don't take anything important off and then the filter of the fan had dust too so that was the only time I took out my vacuum to remove it. Now It seems like the fans aren't blowing anymore.  :cheesy: I guess sometimes we just need to do some spring cleaning.
