I didn't know what to name the thread, because i have no idea what the problem is..
For a week, i`ve been getting a BSOD right before the welcome screen. and it usually happens like this:
I boot the PC > BSOD and restart > PC runs fine.
If i shut it down, it happens all over again.. The error in the BSOD has something to do with nv"something".sys. probably the display driver
Since that BSOD problem started, i had this other problem where games are horribly stuttering (both sound and fps) when i run them,
but then they run fine after restarting the PC.
However, starting yesterday, the stuttering stayed even after restarting, it just won`t go away..
The sound doesn`t stutter only during gameplay, it does that also during the intro movies, and even the windows welcome screen!
Also, while playing a video on wmp (or any media player), both video and sound stutters whenever i refresh the desktop. (it also happens with mp3s)
GPU and CPU temps are fine.
I tried reinstalling windows, but it didn`t fix it.. I even got a BSOD during it. (after one of the installation restarts)
My rig is:
Q6600 G0 @2.4
XFX 9800GTX+ 512MB
WD 640GB HDD
4 GB RAM
Windows 7 X64
everything is at stock speed.
I`ve been googling this for hours now, and i got nothing.. so any help would be really appreciated.
