    Asus Gaming Laptop G60JX Blue Screen

    I am so glad i found you guys! People told me that the experts are in this forum!

    I have a :
    ASUS Laptop G60JX
    Window 7 home premium
    Nvida GeForce GTS 360m


    Every time i get on the internet for a few minutes, my computer goes to a Blue Screen and gives this message:

    NVLDDMKM.sys
    0x00000116

    and then it restarts the computer and when i get on the internet again, it does it again.
    Is my graphics card bad? i updated driver from Nvida, but it didnt affect it, so I reset my whole computer
    back to factory settings and it does the same thing.
    Need help please!

    I would bet it's probably a bad graphics card, but try the old driver first.

    I read in reviews that this particular card is very picky when it comes to updates. It's best to try a known good driver to eliminate some factors.

    If you look back at the older g-series that had the gtx 260m you would find similar issues. These laptops ran hot due to a poor thermal design. Prolonged high temperatures result in damage.

    You can either try to replace the card (it might not be worth it considering the age of the G60 series). You can also upgrade to a more recent computer (g53/g73/74) for a reasonable price.

    If the older driver doesn't help, I agree that it's probably a dying graphics card.

    Yes, just remove everything Nvidia related under display adapters. It's pretty easy to replace the video card, it depends on how the computer comes apart. The older g-series G51vx and G71gx had the same GTX 260M but the G71 you had to completely disassemble to get the video card out.

    You also want to consider the price of the card and finding one that is confirmed to be working. With all the time and money you are going to put into the repair it might be a better idea to upgrade. Either way we'll be around if you have questions.

    If you want to make sure you get properly rid of the current graphics driver before installing the older one, try Display Driver Uninstaller. Download it from here and follow the instructions. That link is to the latest version.
