Default BSOD with nVidia GT 220

Hi, not sure if this is in the correct section, but here goes!

I recently installed an Nvidia GT 220 into my system, and ever since I have been getting frequent BSOD's (all stating NVLDDMKM.SYS)

After some searching, I discovered that it was an Nvidia driver, I have tried the most recent drivers, aswell as the oldest I can get, all do the same.

A friend of mine said that it could be my PSU if it's not a high enough wattage (I think its only a 250w but I will confirm in the morning)

Really stuck on what to do now!

Computer specs are:

It's a HP dx2300
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 @ 1.80GHz
RAM: 2GB DDR2
MB: MSI 0A90
GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 1GB


Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


EDIT: When windows reboots, I get a message saying "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Hi, Just checked and the power supply is a 250w.

The card I removed was a ATI Radeon X1650.

What sort of wattage PSU should I replace mine with?

Thanks.

I think a new more powerful PSU will fix the problem.

What OS are you running, Do you have the latest service packs + hotfixes installed ?

according to Nvidia, Minimum Recommended System Power 300w. That card uses a maximum 58w.
i'd say if you can afford something a little bigger than that. It could solve the problem. as long as there is nothing wrong with anything else.

I will pick up a 400w at least PSU tonight then, and let you know how I get on.

Thanks.

Hi again.

I replaced my 250w PSU with a cheapy 400w one, and I think it's fixed the problem!

Thanks a lot for your help!

Unfortunately, it's not fixed it!

Now I'm thinking it could just be a faulty card?
