I was on my PC and suddenly my computer shutdown and booted into a bsod. I suspected it was the gpu because of the dollar signs at the beginning of the boot and so I proceeded to install the latest driver for my 560Ti, didn't work, tried an old driver from a little more than 6 months, also didn't work.

Having done the process above I tried it again with Display drive uninstaller, with no luck.

Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

  • 560TI is an older card, maybe it is damaged now after the years of usage. do you have a CPU with integrated GPU (Intel i5/7) to test if this onboard GPU works? – magicandre1981 May 25 '18 at 13:53
  • I think its defaulting to integrated graphics. By the screen is like 200x200, not sure how to confirm its working. – Usernamehere May 25 '18 at 18:07
  • nvlddmkm.sys means nVIDIA driver. so look if your CPU has integrated GPU – magicandre1981 May 26 '18 at 7:38
  1. Reboot
  2. Hit the F8 key at least once if not 2x a second.

A boot menu will appear.

Boot Menu 3. Select Low-resolution video (640x480)

if that fails retry with

  1. Safe mode

If that fails leave a comment, and I will add further instructions.

  • There is no VGA mode and I am able to get into safe mode w/ networking etc.. – Usernamehere May 25 '18 at 4:10
  • @Usernamehere Sorry its "Low-resolution video..." – cybernard May 25 '18 at 4:15
  • I clicked enable low-resolution video and it went direct to blue screen then booting into safe mode works. – Usernamehere May 25 '18 at 4:22
  • is there anything to do in safe mode? – Usernamehere May 25 '18 at 4:42
  • @Usernamehere - I would use windbg to determine the cause of the crash, which is more likely a driver, and then make sure that driver isn't loaded. The reason Safe Mode worked is likely that problem driver was not loaded – Ramhound May 25 '18 at 13:53
