Hi, not sure if this is in the correct section, but here goes!

I recently installed an Nvidia GT 220 into my system, and ever since I have been getting frequent BSOD's (all stating NVLDDMKM.SYS)

After some searching, I discovered that it was an Nvidia driver, I have tried the most recent drivers, aswell as the oldest I can get, all do the same.

A friend of mine said that it could be my PSU if it's not a high enough wattage (I think its only a 250w but I will confirm in the morning)

Really stuck on what to do now!

Computer specs are:

It's a HP dx2300
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 @ 1.80GHz
RAM: 2GB DDR2
MB: MSI 0A90
GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 1GB


Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


EDIT: When windows reboots, I get a message saying "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"

if it 250w power supply, that could be your problem, what video card did you take out?

Hi, Just checked and the power supply is a 250w.

The card I removed was a ATI Radeon X1650.

What sort of wattage PSU should I replace mine with?

Thanks.

I think a new more powerful PSU will fix the problem.

What OS are you running, Do you have the latest service packs + hotfixes installed ?

according to Nvidia, Minimum Recommended System Power 300w. That card uses a maximum 58w.
i'd say if you can afford something a little bigger than that. It could solve the problem. as long as there is nothing wrong with anything else.

I will pick up a 400w at least PSU tonight then, and let you know how I get on.

Thanks.

Hi again.

I replaced my 250w PSU with a cheapy 400w one, and I think it's fixed the problem!

Thanks a lot for your help!

Unfortunately, it's not fixed it!

Now I'm thinking it could just be a faulty card?
