well, you can reboot and see if the event errors continue, but we are getting off track

You need to get your hands on another power supply. Surely you can find someone with a PC you can borrow one from....

Congrats, I thought I'd seen every error message. That one is new. And, I cannot find any reference to it anywhere

Are you sure that is typed correctly?

Double click the error, hit the COPY button (looks like two pieces of paper) and then paste it (ctrl V) into your next post

you added an 8

This is KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED error and is usually the result of a bad driver


Just because you have the most recent drivers does not mean that a driver error was not added.

Did you get a CD with drivers when you bought the PC? Consider using the older drivers.

You said earlier that you used the most recent nvidia and chipset drivers,,,,where did you get them?

i8 dont have a cd for the machine with drivers etc .

and the drivers im using are the from the nvidia website both display (graphics card) and chipset nforce1/2
driver.
i have also tried using the drivers cd that came with the graphics card which did not make a difference.

are there anymore tests i can perform to rule anything further out? before i shell out on a new PSU of wattage still unsure which to go for ??

Well, I would get nothing less than a 350watt power supply, and 400 if you can. Stay away from the cheap ones (I'd still prefer you test with ANY one though)

You could also try connecting the PC to a completely different circuit, just as a test

One other thing--did you remove the previous drivers before installing the newest?

Download driver cleaner pro from here:

http://www.driverhea...ead.php?t=76416

Install it.

Start > Control Panel, choose add/remove applet

Remove any drivers or utlities for your card.

Reboot into safe mode, by tapping f8 key at startup, about once a second...you will be given a text mode menu....choose safe mode

Run driver cleaner pro and select the video driver you had from the drop down menu and let driver cleaner wipe out all the remaining files from the uninstall.

reboot into normal mode...cancel the hardware installation wizard.

Use the driver setup routine you downloaded above to reinstall the driver.
