BSOD probably caused by Asus EN9800GT GPU

  1. Hi all,

    I have the following hardware configured:

    K9N MSI mobo
    Asus EN9800GT 1GB graphics card
    2x250GB Raid Stripe built on WD Hard-disks.
    EZCool 450W PSU
    AMD AM2 Processor 5600x2

    Recently (After I've upgraded Nvidia drivers) I've been experiencing BSODs
    which probably are related to the Nvidia graphics card, what I don't know is if it's software or hardware related.
    Three of the errors are "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION" and one is "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" (in the attached files)
    I always see in the error logs the nv4_disp.dll mentioned. I've done some digging on this and I saw there some kind
    of loop in the Nvidia driver which has been fixed ?

    The BSOD mostly occurred when I played Wolfenstein or when the game is paused. From what I can tell it doesn't happen in other times. I've looked into the GPU temperature and it easily reaches 70 degrees Celsius during load, is it reasonable ?

    I'd be glad for any help or insight about the attached minidump logs.

    I can't read your minidumps.
    Post them separately, please.

    What fixed this is nv4_loopfix.
