    What a train wreck of a thread.

    Have fun getting asked the same questions as in your previous thread (that you seem to have abandoned for no reason) all over again, OP. By the same people, probably. :facepalm:

    Cuteee, If I were having the issues I'd start with
    1. Clean the card - Done
    2. Perhaps check the hard drive for errors.
    3. Is it a recent install? Perhaps check the system, either Dism or sfc /scannow.
    4. Check the drivers. I'd get the hardware ID and the model. Ise the Hardware ID to check catalog.update.microsoft.com for the latest drivers they have, I'd pick Windows 10 drivers first, if none the Windows 8, then 7. Download them direct and unpack them and install right from device manager. Or go to NVidia and look up the latest drivers they have. Personally with older cards I don't install the software, just the drivers option.

    This error is almost always caused by a hardware problem. The last time it happened to me it was my video card. I could tell because it mentioned a file called "nvidia.sys". I tried a new driver but it didn't help so I replaced the video card and then everything was fine.

    Unfortunately, it seems like the Windows 10 version of the BSOD contains a lot less information that would help you track down the problem.

    Maybe we don't think it is HD, you've made it very clear what you think, ever hear song "Let it be",
    It applies. makin.ditch is doing fine helping him.

    No need to believe. Just look at the event viewer for any disk error, if no errors there, no disk problem, no matter if the disk is 15 years old or bought yesterday. Simple as that.

    Not true!! As an example: if there slow sectors on the HDD, it's mostly not reported anywhere! And that's just one (the most common) of the unreported problems!!

    If there are slow sectors, windows becomes slow not BSOD because a disk error.

    My guess is that hardly your problem comes from the HDD, anyway if you want to be sure launch a chkdsk /F /R.

    That will report for any dead sector, and will mark them as unusable

    I have the program "Intel Desktop Utilities" and there I see if the HDD is ok.

    Why use a third party utility when there is a simple command which does the task reliably since the days of the DOS?
