  1. Hi Everyone,

    This is my first time to post on TechSpot - hopefully someone can help me . . .

    I have recently built my pc :-

    ASUS P5K Premium WiFi
    Q6600 Quad Core
    5GB Ram
    ASUS EN8800GT graphics
    320GB Samsung HDD

    It appears to be restarting itself upon booting ? Sometimes it boots first time, sometimes go round in cirlces for about 3 times - then asks me to enter safe mode etc etc.

    I have the following details :-

    Problem signature:

    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.
    Locale ID: 2057

    I also have the Minidump file is this is of any use to anyone ? ?

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Yes! The minidump is very important for us to be able - hopefully - to find your cause.

    The more minidumps you can provide the better.

    See the Manage Attachment buttons below.

    Firstly thank you for my first reply to my first post !!!

    I have attached the minidump file as suggested.

    Hopefully it will shed some light.

    Some additional info is :-

    It always goes to the windows moving bars and just before the vista circle icon appears it then restarts.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Your minidump points to nvlddmkm.sys which is an Nvidia display driver and many people are experiencing issues with this driver.

    Here is one example:

    Some people are receiving this issue because Vista was not installed properly. This may be your case considering the lasass.exe was also named in your minidump and that is a Windows security process for the ability to log in.

    And you haven't been able to even boot in.

    Others have cited the Dreamscene and they disabled it.

    I wouldn't fool around with any processes though until you have a better understanding with solid fixes for this issue.

    Google nvlddmkm.sys and read up on it.

    Thanks for the update.

    I have downloaded the very latest ASUS Nvidia drivers (70mb+) and installed it.

    My computer has now booted first time !!

    I have only tried this 3 times so far and each time it appears to be working ( once was 12 hours later ).

    I shall post an update in the next few days to let you know if this has fully sorted the problem.

    NB - Since updating the driver Windows starts quicker and runs faster.

    Thanks for the assitance.

    Route 44,

    It's been nearly two days and well over 15 restarts and everything is working fine.

    Looks like your advice and the installation of the latest drivers did the trick.

    Thanks for all your help.

    to Route44,
    Hate to ask but I am having BS after sleep (pc), thus I am reluctant to add any new hardware, RAM, video, 2nd HDD... Here are 5 minidumps that may give light to this problem. I would appreciate if you would take a look at them.
    dell is NOT much help and I would try to decipher but came across your postings and couldn't resist sending note to you.

    Welcome to the forums. :wave: For future reference if you have any issues you'll find that you'll get help quicker by starting your own thread. :)

    The good news on your minidumps is that all five are consistent in that all point to the same culprit: e1e6032.sys

    This is a Network Driver for your Intel(R) PRO/1000 Adapter. I would say that you need to update your drivers.

    Appreciate the welcome message and advice. Thanks for taking a look, is it posssible my modem is processing a higher number of errors as I have recently been having a bit of trouble with my cable connection, resulting in a run on sentences and a new modem.

    i will try the driver, but I didn't see one at dell support.

    Thanks again.
