i'm on my vista home edition x64. laptop. turion-52 4gigs of ram geforce graphics.

model number of laptop hp-dv9000 series.

so whats causing my crashes? its because of the geforce on the go grpahics. brings up this error.

nvlddmkm.sys failure. causes my grpahics card to stop give me bsod and restarts my computer constantly but boots up fine but later crashes agen. so far i researched the whole google area and i can't find a fix.

update and rollbacking drivers does not work.

technically there is no solution to fixing this problem so everyone says and even nvidia can't find a solution.

heres something the windows error report posted:

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini111508-02.dmp
C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-114333-0.sysdata.xml
C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Temp\WERE520.tmp.version.txt

should i send it back for warranty and see what happens or ask for a hard reformat and hope that it solves the problem? thanks all

could be a few problems

1) Driver issues with your Geforce moblie
2) Defective Graphics card, which causes the BSOD's

If rolling back drivers didnt help, or using newer drivers, i'd say the mGPU is going out.. and send in for a replace laptop.

send it back under warranty. You could have one of the defective GPU's that hit the news a few months back.

Try drivers first, boot up in safe mode to install them. Otherwise, I am with Mussles, go for the RMA.
