CAT andMUM Files
« on: January 14, 2016, 10:06:20 PM »
Hi,
Am new here and have big problems, (maybe Video card on way out) but lets fix one thing at a time.

My Pre-scan shows I need three files.  Can you help please?

Text File attached with full dump.

Cheers

Dennis

Odd, i dont have those 3 files in my file database.

What problems are you having exactly?

Hi Shane,

I have an older Desktop PC which was originaly powered by XP, later updated to W7 and about 3 mths ago to W10.

Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E6650 @ 2.33GHz
Installed Memory: 2.00 GB DDR2 PC-5300 (667Mhz)
System Type: Windows 10 Home 10.0.10240 32-bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-S3L
Display Adaptor: NVIDEA GeForce 8500 GT
Driver: 341.92

I use it for emails, internet searches and heavy spreadsheet work and other software associated with my interest in Genetic Genealogy.

Three days ago it bombed with VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE nvlddmkm.sys
It was impossible to boot unless in SAFE Mode.

I tried a restore to a few days before and ran various scans including Tweaking.com scans to no avail. I tried a driver install over the existing drivers. Still no good.

An interesting thing I noticed was in the boot screen, which shows what devices are connected, it would often show text where some letters were displayed one position lower, eg it would show 'TRB 0.0 Hnrt Bntrlr' instead of 'USB 1.1 Host Cntrlr' indicating the rt most binary wasn't always being recognised.

It appears I may have found a possible solution:-

    Go to http://www.geforce.com/drivers and use the "Auto-Detect your GPU" to ensure you have the most appropriate Driver, and save to your PC.
    Go to Control Panel, Add and Delete Programs, and delete ALL NVIDEA Drivers. (I had five,
    NVIDEA Graphics Driver,
    NVIDEA 3D Vision Controller Driver,
    NVIDEA 3D vision Driver,
    NVIDEA NVIDIA GeForce Experience,
    NVIDEA PhysX System Software
    Reboot the computer normally, which will now start in Low Resolution.
    Now go to where you have the saved latest Driver, Rt Click on it and "Run as Administrator". Choose 'Custom' and start the install.  Choose only the Graphics Driver.
    Reboot again and hopefully all will be well again!


I now have only one driver installed:-

NVIDEA Graphics Driver 341.92

So it appears that my problem was a corrupt driver and as I don't do any Gaming, I probably don't require the 3D drivers.

I had suspected my Graphics card may have been on the way out ... have to wait and see if all is now well.  At least I can boot to Windows 10 in Normal rather than SAFE mode.

There was known problems with the nvidia drivers when 10 came out that was blue screening, so testing the newest drivers is th ebest way to go. If it keeps happening then it might be the video card. But for right now I think it may have just been a crappy older driver.

Hi Steve,

Still getting intermittant problems, more particularly first thing.  Perhaps it is lesser of a problem with a bit of warmth in the box.

I do think the old video card is suspect, so I have ordered a new cheap card, a Asus GeForce GT210  Silent 1Gb DRR3 which will perhaps use later drivers, more in tune with Windows 10.

Cheers and thanks

Dennis

Just a final for this one .... yes, the new Graphics card has solved the problem!

While I vacuumed out the box at Christmas each year, the underside of the old graphics card had a fan I was not aware of and was FULL of dust!  My problem was almost certainly due to that.


Cheers and thanks,

Dennis
