Hello,

I've had my computer bluescreen several times recently but haven't added any new hardware or done anything else obvious that could have brought this on. (I'm using Vista). Before it dies normally I will get about 8 thick lines or so across my monitor (they move and print screen doesn't pick them up) and suddenly I can't watch anything in full screen any more because the image is too slow.

I saw that you have been able to help others with this issue and asked them to send you the minidump files so hopefully the attachment works and is what you're after.

I'm aware that these could be unrelated things, but I'm also no good with computers so I thought I better mention everything - and who knows you may have a suggestion for the other thing anyway.

Thanks for any help you can give me!!

Hi, I checked a couple of the minidumps and both of them said "Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys". This is an Nvidia driver. Ensure you have the correct and latest drivers. If these fail to resolve the fault then perhaps it is hardware related. Maybe the card is overheating? Open your case and check the fan on the graphics card to see if there is lots of dust on it. HTH :) Gower IT
