I have a Compaq Presario 6608AU laptop with Nvidia GeForce 7150 / nForce 630M. After what is usually 3 to 4 hours of usage, the screen sometimes goes blank - after a couple of minutes there is a BSOD saying that the display stopped working.
What could be the problem?
I get the same problem on Windows 7 as well.
ADDED after Analysing BSOD mini dump on BlueScreenView:
BlueScreenView says that the crash always happens because of:
FileName: NVIDIA Compatible Windows Vista Kernel Mode Driver, Version 177.13,
The crash happens in C:\Windows\system32\drivers\dxgkrnl.sys, the DirectX Graphics Kernel and usually occurs when I use Google Chrome and VMWare.
Temperature Update (I used SpeedFan software for this)
CPU(AMD Turion): 60C (AVG) GPU(NVIDIA Geforce): 80C (AVG). I am using a laptop cooler; before this it used to be +5C.
Should I try Vista 64-bit?
