The 8400GS is a low end piece of crap. More than likely, your problem is driver related. That info would be displayed on the BSOD. To view the BSOD, you need to disable "auto-restart".

thank you i will try that. I will let you know how i get on with it
ok i tried that and i wrote it down. system diagnositc utility, memory check for mismatched memory, and try changing video adapters.
****STOP: 0x0000007F (0x00000000.0x00000000,0x00000000
beginning dump of physical memory
physical dump complete

thats what i get so i looked it all up. my monitor always displays *no signal* but always has so could this be the problem as well? or is it that when i got the pc i experienced BSOD and the company just added more memory without doing a check? i am lost really but not thick lol so i will try anything that you guys can help me with =)

That's not all the message...there should be some text that goes along with it.


"The most common causes of a STOP 0x7F are:

* Low-level hardware corruption, such as corrupt memory (RAM)
* Mismatched memory modules
* A malfunctioning motherboard"

Try testing your memory with memtest86. If any errors are reported, the RAM is probably defective:

i tried that site and i couldnt get it to work on here it just kept opening multiple windows and wouldnt load. I wrote everything down from the BSOD and it didnt say anything else. I got a second messge from the next time it blue screened and this is the message. STOP: 0x000000D1 0x000000D2, 0xB685F818, RtKHDAUD, SYS-ADDRESS B685F818 basa at B67FS5000, datestamp 44a23cee.
there was nothing else on this BSOD just to say the dump part which was the same as the previous. Also in the nvidia settings its set to video settings and not nvidia one. Is this a problem? the thing is this card was ok in my last pc and i didnt get this BSOD so idk. when it first happened the engineer just inserted more memory as he said he *thought* it could be that but didnt look at any error messages on the pc itself...... I was just hoping that i could fix this problem myself without involving them again, I know that they built this but i would have thought they could have done more for this problem and now its out of warranty!!! lol they gave me 3 months
