Hi All,

I recently started experiencing application crashes when using my 3d rendering software, sometimes even when not actually doing anything with it, just open and idle. I started looking for a cause relating to the software itself, and on the software forums they suggested i update my video drivers. Having not updated my video drivers for at least a few months, i figured why not.

The problem i have now (which may or may not be related to the app crashes) is i cant update my video drivers without getting a BSOD. The driver install gets to the point where the display drops out temporarily, and from there i get the BSOD. I tried 3 different driver versions, all the same. I have not yet tried removing the drivers completely first, as i wanted some input before i do that incase i get stuck with no video drivers after doing it.

Bluescreen view tells me it is SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, caused by nvlddmkm.sys.

Rest of my specs are:
Windows 7 64bit
i7 4770k
Twin GTX 780s
32gig corsair platinum 1600
samsung 840 evo SSD
Gigabyte G1 sniper 5 motherboard

Any help is appreciated

Ok, a reboot after the other link above and ahve now successfully installed new drivers. Hopefully this fixes the crash in my rendering application also.

Thanks for your help

No worries. Your Power Supply is a real good one. Some threads though the PSU might have been a problem.
