    LD,

    If you haven't updated the Nvidia video drivers recently, and this issue just started, something in a recent Windows patch may be causing a conflict with the existing driver. It looks like it is attempting to write to kernel reserved memory space, which is causing the blue screen.

    Have you checked for an updated Nvidia driver for your video card?

    -Skylark

    P.S. are you by any chance running Vista?

    ya vista,

    I just updated the video card to latest and the motherboard nvidea driver said i didnt have those so nvidea drivers are all up to date.
    I also downloaded memtest and ran 2 of them overnight. which didnt find anything.

    I guess I will wait and see if it crashes again.

    There is a known issue with some Nvidia drivers where when Vista updates, it doesn't get rid of the old version of nvlddmkm.sys and the mismatch leads to the crashes. I found several cases where the resolution involved manual updating of this particular file but to do that we'd have to get specific about your driver. If you experience the crashes following the driver update, we can go into it deeper.

    yep just crashed again - but this time everything just froze for 5 mins and i then gave it the 1-finger salute (pushing in and holding the power btn)

    I would like to try to update the driver file as you said. is there a guide somewhere?

    Can you provide the exact specs for your video card, and your operating system?

    Right click My Computer, choose Properties --> General

    Give the info under "system"

    Right click My Computer choose Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager

    Expand the entry for Display Adapters, right click your adapter, choose Properties, give the info on the General and Driver tabs

    Here are a couple of discussions which may be related to your situation, but I wouldn't suggest following anything in them until we know more about your setup.

    Article 1

    This one is a couple years old and I don't think is exactly what you are experiencing other than the apparent freeze you mention now, but might be part of the issue since people are still reporting this type of thing 2 years later:

    Old Known Issue (Vista TDR messages/freeze/black screen)

    Your recent crash (12/1/2009) is NOT video card related. NTOSKRNL.exe is, essentially, the operating system itself. The error, attempt to write to read only memory is usually/very often indicative of bad/failing RAM.

    The 8/4/2009 crash was video card related, yes, but that was 4 months ago. ;)

    Kernel crashes can be caused by windows updates as well. I've seen this recently. Uninstall any windows updates installed just before the first crash and see if it clears up. Also, download ccleaner and clean temp files, as well as registry. (This is the only registry cleaner I will personally vouch for).

    http://www.ccleaner.com/download - Use the "Alternative download" link.

    Looks like a memory issue of some sort, could be RAM or video card memory. Might be software too you can wipe your OS and reinstall to be sure :)

    I would look at the PSU, a dieing PSU having voltage irregularities cause these things which effects perfectly good ram. I would also do a chkdsk on the HD. If you have a solid state drive, do not defragment. This causes the same stuff.

    One issue I had recently with an issue related to a similar video card causing crashes I ended up having to:

    Power down the system
    Remove said video card
    reboot system
    remove drivers for said card
    reboot system
    turn off system
    Put card back on Mother Board
    Turn back on and reinstall with latest drivers

    That was the only way I corrected the issue.

    Not saying that will fix your issue, just sharing something similar that was occuring with me.

    I have also seen a similar issue where the someone had to download a new bootvid.dll because it was corrupted, but I cannot find that posting now.
