    I did not focus on your 2nd option, a small typo in my post.

    I did not meant the part of replacing an old GPU with a new one, on that part I have nothing to say at all, it was focused on this part
    So my suggestion is: try any Radeon (not necessarilly new one) instead of GeForce card

    hey guys,

    The problem persists, even though it appears to occur less frequently. Is switching back to windows 7 an option then? For me it is because i dont really care about windows 10 too much.

    @valihrach it means the system was unable to recover the drivers, not the hardware, the drivers are the one communicating with the hardware. It has many causes, maybe not always graphics related but all I have seen are 100% graphics related and I have seen a lot
    @j00p, that is a decision up to you

    axe0 says: "it means the system was unable to recover the drivers, not the hardware"
    MSDN says: "The GPU scheduler calls DxgkDdiResetFromTimeout when it detects that a hardware time-out occurred."

    waste of time

    From msdn
    the operating system's GPU scheduler calls the display miniport driver's DxgkDdiResetFromTimeout function to reinitialize the driver
    I said the system was unable to recover the drivers, I did not say why DxgkDdiResetFromTimeout is called. The system can only recover the drivers, not the hardware

    Would adding another one of the same gpu (SLI) help in this case?

    In all situations I've dealt with it is recommended to not use multiple GPUs unless it is for testing purpose, i.e. not using them simultaneously.

    It would not help, if any problem occurs we need to figure out which is causing problems what is an unnecessary extra step for troubleshooting.

    Yea ok. Are there any other options i could try before i go back to windows 7? As a last resort ill try and buy a second hand radeon card that is comparable to this one.

    Im getting the feeling Nvidia is trying to force me to buy a new card.

    It is recommended that you upload a new zip so we can have a better look at it.

    I've only given 3 suggestions, 1 BIOS update and 2 driver updates. What things are tried in the few weeks?

    Hey there guys im back again. Had to finish stuff for my studies and moved to a new place
    so i didnt have that much time to focus on this BSOD problem.
    I am still willing to fix it and so far i have tried to go back to several previous versions of nvidia drivers without success.
    I also updated my GPU driver to a recent august version, the problem still persists.
    Today i updated the BIOS version of my P5N-D motherboard without success.
    The BSOD's seem so occur less frequently and they occur when i watch stuff on YouTube and when i play Fallout 3.
    So i do you guys have any more suggestions that i can try? And is posting a log file still useful after 3 days of no BSOD?
    I really appreciate all the help so far.

    Greetings and thanks,
