  • dxgkrnl.sys bsod uo to 7 times in 30 min

    my computer is crashing CSS either to desktop or mostly a BSOD, as frequent as 7 times in about 30 min last night, i have a dell i9300 with a 6800go, temps are under 65c when this happens, i have loaded the stock driver from dell, omega drivers, XtremeG drivers from guru3d forcewares from nvidia, and all do the same thing... a CTD usually happens first but thereafter it is a BSOD.... this is freaking annoying and i have no clue what to do, i have checked every tech/laptop forum i know of and nothing... help? please!!!!!!


    also, i used to be able to play at 1650x1080 at med settings and get 30fps, now i am at low settings and 1024x786 on all low and fps dip to 4fps in massive firefights at times



    system specs: dell inspiron 9300
    2.13ghz pentium m
    nvidia geforce go 6800
    windows vista
    2gb ram

      Clean the dust from your system innards if you can (can of compressed air). 65C sounds hot for a GPU. After I cleared the dust from every nook and cranny of my PC, my GPU temps dropped from 75C to 59C on heavy load.

        dog: i removed the pin mod, tried the old cpu, neither worked, exact same symptoms
        acreo: this is a laptop, and 65c is a standard temp for the card (i checked and 75 is still normal temp), as for dust, this thing doesnt have a spec of dust in it.

        another note: i kept trying the brute force technique of drivers and i found an Xtreme G driver from guru3d that was 4 or 5 older than new, it stopped bsod, but every hour or so it will still CTD, this i can handle, better than load game.. buy weapons, start to move... bsod.. rinse repeat.. this makes me think that the temp monitor is wrong because the longer i have the computer off, the longer i can play before my ctd, temps never show above 70, and the card itself says it will stay stable up to 97 (in which it then shuts down supposidly)

          Was the RAM a recent addition? BSODs are usually a problem with memory (or a fault PSU...which doesn't really apply with a laptop).

            Re: dxgkrnl.sys bsod uo to 7 times in 30 min

            im begining to think it is heat related to the gpu, yes temps are fine, but what if the temps not next to the temp probe are high, with this current driver, i have eliminated BSOD completely.. (none in 2 days compared to every 5 min for an hour) and i went all day with only 1 crash.. but i only played one hour at a crack for 4 or 5 hours total, if it IS the gpu overheating which i truly think is the problem, ill be looking for a new gpu (i have my new comp parts comming by friday for my desktop so my laptop will be retired b ack to on-the-go gaming/productivity once again) but there is 1 seller on ebay selling new 7800gtx go for 380 shipped, buy now or best offer, it is extreamly high... anyone have one for sale?

              Tonk, since it's a dell, I'd recommend calling dell to see if they have any compatible graphics cards for your laptop. Dell is frequently quite expensive, but I sincerely doubt theyre going to try and charge you 400 bucks for a sub-top graphics card.

                to get the same card from dell is about $240 plus shipping, but thats for a 6800 again, if im gonna spend money on a gfx card, im not gonna break even for performance, if it costs 250 to break even on performance, or 375 to get a very good boost, its worth 125, i do have to bios flash to an xps bios, but simple enough

                  agreed, or even if no new ram, old ram could be faulting

                  nvidia tools and run, ntune it has stress tests built in, dont know if it will work on proprietary boards.

                  I'm confused, a laptop with a replaceable gfx card?

                    yes, link to 7800gtx here

                    pretty much only a select few models of laptops from dell have replacable/upgradable parts (great modders) from parts in the next model/higher up model in the series

                      MOST Dell laptops have the option for modular video cards. this is how they offer diiferent cards during the ordering process. the only way to get a non-modular vid card is to get the intel x3100. Also, most of the vid cards for Dell have the same connectors, so other than bios restrictions and form factor, they are interchangeable between laptops (in the same generation... a 1530 xps vid card is the same for the 1730... though the layout of the physical card may differ. I have found that even the screen connector from generation to generation is the same a lot of the time. I tried a 9300 wuxga screen on my e1505 (1 generation different.) and the plug fit. I did not want to risk either my 1700.00 laptop or my 350 screen, so I did not try to power on.

                      the point is that Dell is moving very fast toward standardization in the vid card market for thier own benefit, but indirectly, everyone will benefit.

                        see if you can rig some sort of vid card cooling setup for your laptop. Whisky had a thread about some home brew pvc pipe and fan setup he used iirc. Also, try underclocking the card. Do what you can to rule out temps.

                        My guess is there is a driver issue. Based on your reduced fps in games at lower res, I am thinking after all those troubleshooting driver installs you have some bogus drivers still sitting somewhere screwing things up.

                          I suggest using a program like RivaTuner if you're going to underclock. Some cards have issues when underclocked (ex: no display, etc.). Underclocking might also result in BSODs.

                              this is how I do driver updates:

                              uninstall old drivers via control panel.
                              boot into safe mode
                              run driver cleaner http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745 or http://www.drivercleaner.net/
                              boot into normal mode
                              install drivers
                              reboot and test.
