It's empty in this folder I think ccleaner has cleaned it by accident. What tab do I uncheck in ccleaner so it doesn't do it again is it memory dumps?

 

This morning after seeing it was empty I reinstalled the win 10 driver and then checked in

device manager/displayadapters/Mividia geforce 9600 gt/properties/events

and it says
Device PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0622&SUBSYS_104319DA&REV_A1\4&15f80c0a&0&0018 requires further installation.
 
I thought this is a bit odd as I downloaded the latest driver from nividia and did a full install of the cards driver.
The history also lists previous driver installations with the same further instillation needed message, sorry i over looked this before.
Thank you for your help Freebooter.

Uncheck Memory Dumps from CCleaner.

Uninstall currently install graphic card driver and reinstall latest graphic card driver.  After you have install the graphic card driver check the driver state from Device Manager.

If you get a BSOD please zip and upload the BSOD memory dump file.

Hi HolyCowZ,

 

Sorry for late reply i was very busy, i had a look at the memory dump file and last BSOD cause by graphic card driver.

Can you use SpeedFan to monitor temperatures in you computer overheating can also cause BSOD.

If you are overclocking please revert back all default settings for overclocked devices.

If your computer is not custom made than install latest graphic card driver from your computer manufacturer website make sure to uninstall currently install driver before installing new driver.

I've not overclocked anything.

I did a clean install and removed the old driver before installing the windows 10 version back from the Nividia site.

Can't imagine it's an overheating problem as it doesn't do this when using vista, windows 7 or linux on this machine. It has only ever done it on windows 10.

I will monitor it though.

The fans inside are clear of dust and the GPU is also clear.

Thanks

 

Edit 45 mins later stressed the gpu running a game, video, browser and a few applications with active gui's at the same time it went from 36C to 37C and for a tiny amount of time 38C all blue arrows going down which I am assuming is cold and good.

The pc has also been on all day since 7 this morning so it would have been a normal temp before I began the test should I keep testing? Not sure what to do as I have never used speed fan and can't find much about it to do with gpu heat test. Looked at how to use it on you tube but they all seem to be about ajusting fan speed. 

sorry for the non technical terms

Thank you

 

Edit 2 I have just done patch Tuesdays updates and in them was a Nividia update so I'll give it a few days to see if this recent update will fix things if that's ok?

I have run speed fan for hours now non stop and had a video or music playing while I gamed it's been a hard stress test and it never went above 39c so I guess it isn't overheating.

 

I hope the update whatever it is does the trick to seems to have installed a lot of other nividia stuff to 3d vision some 3d photo thing physx software and update 10. something along with a new driver. 

Thank you very much for your help :)

UPDATE + SOLVED:I found the cause in the end. It was caused by  a failing GPU. Funny thing is it passed all the bench mark tests. I had to play a gpu intensive game to see the tell tale signs textures not showing replaced now and again by one colour and the stuttering when things got to intensive.
