    System Service Exception BSOD while playing games. nvlddmkm.sys

    Hello, over the past week, maybe two weeks. I have gotten a couple of BSOD while playing a game. It has happened with Assassin's Creed Origins, Destiny 2, and now League of Legends. I tried Display Driver Uninstaller on safe mode to see if maybe it was a bad driver, but I am still unsure if it would be the driver as the error I got was exactly the same

    Stop Code: System Service Exception
    What Failed: Nvlddmkm.sys

    Everything I have looked up says somewhat different. From display driver to failing graphics card to even a failing power supply. My power supply is the oldest thing on my computer, its Antec Earthwatts Green 650W that I bought back in April of 2012. I do eventually plan to get a new one, but right now I am not able to do that for reasons I won't go into. It is high on my list of things to do when I get the money to do so.

    With that in mind, I want to try and see if maybe its isn't a failing power supply. So I am hoping this crash log will find something that maybe I didnt see or if anyone else has an answer. Thank you!

    That driver if for your graphics card, best to totally remove the nvidia driver program and re download it fresh. Im sure someone will jump on and ask for a dump and find other things but that particular driver is for nvidia matey :)

    The dump definitely shows a problem with your graphics card/driver:

    There is a newer driver available: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GeForce Game Ready Driver

    Version: 388.43 WHQL
    Release Date: 2017.11.30
    Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit
    Language: English (US)
    File Size: 441.41 MB

    I suggest completely uninstalling the Nvidia display drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) from WagnardMobile (near bottom of page) then install the latest shown above. Then do a custom install of only the NVidia graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

    See if that gets rid of the problem.
