hope that some techie-demigod around this forum is able to help me with this strange crashing pattern.
It started yesterday evening while playing a Dead by Daylight on steam. Suddenly, while trying to leave the game, the screen went black and the GPU fans instantly went to full power. The only way to exit this state was a hard reset. Those things may happen I thought to myself
I rebooted and started another session. Again, upon leaving game, the machine produced a B(lack) Screen of Death. I tried a few more times, each attempt endling in the same result.
Fed up with it I switched to playing Total War: Warhammer. While alt-tabbing to look something up on the net, the box again went to hell.
So I fired up my HW and Event monitors to dig for the root cause. Hardwaremonitor looked unsuspicious. The were no recorded power peaks or drops and while the internal tempreture was pretty warm (around 77°closed and 61° with opened side panel) while running furmark, its nowhere near to the GPU max temp of 95°. After closing furmark - guess what - Black Screen Of Death.
In the event monitor, I found some errorcode 0x00000133. I have no clue of debugging but with the help of a youtube tutorial and WinDBG I was able to analyse one of the crashdump files. There I found something thats saying DCP_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and that was referenced to a NVIDIA driver file "nvlddmkm.sys".
So I completely removed all NVIDIA stuff with DDU and re-installed the latest NVIDIA driver package. This had no effect. So I again removed all NVIDIA files and installed a 3 month- old driver package. Again after closing a performance-hungry application or app => Monitor loses signal => GPU fans go nuts => Only way to exit is hard reset.
While idling, surfing, or watching videos the system runs absolutely stable.
What is this? Is my GeForce dying? All available dump,log and config files attached.
I am clueless and you are my last hope
