See update post #61 on page 3. _________________________________ Yesterday I was playing New Vegas on the laptop and I got a nvlddmkm.sys blue screen i.e. driver error. However, after I restarted the laptop I got artifacting in the bootscreen, windows didn't load and I got the same nvlddmkm.sys blue screen. The only way not to get the bsod was to restart in safe mode, and then restart again in normal mode. After I restarted in normal mode the laptop behaves as usual, I tested it out by playing Fallout 3. Then I tested it out by playing New Vegas and as soon as I loaded the game the screen went full of pink artifacts and again I had the nvlddmkm.sys bsod. _______________________________ Do you think my graphic cards are dying (8800M GTX SLI ) Or is it a driver problem? Or is it a bug in the New Vegas game since I get the BSOD only when I try to play only that game? _______________________________ Btw this started happening without no explanation. Where I was gaming I don't have internet access so there couldn't have been some wacky update... Also I've been using the same nvidia driver for months now so nothing changed there. As well, I had been playing New Vegas with no problems on the laptop the previous day I clocked a couple of hours.
