I got BSOD for the first time. Help.
I have been gaming and web browsing on my Dell Inspiron 7567 Gaming for a few months now, and have been loving it.
However, during a particularly intense session of watching YouTube, the blue screen of death popped up.
The stop code was PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONAGED_AREA.
What failed was nvlddm.sys .
I ran sfc /scannow in command prompt, and nothing popped up.
I also check to see if there were any new GPU driver updates, (since what failed is related to NVIDIA drivers), but GeForce Experience said they were up to date.
Now, my question is, what does that (Stop Code and What Failed) mean, and should I be worried? What can I do to fix this? And is BSOD normal?
Some questions that you will ask and answers I will reply:
Q. Have you been tampering with the parts?
A. No, and I don't plan on doing that anytime soon.
Q. Does you laptop overheat?
A. No, it gets warm when I put my hand over the fans sometimes but never to the point where it's uncomfortable to use.
Q. Do you overclock your laptop?
A. No, and I don't plan on doing that soon.
Q. Have you tried updating drivers?
A. Like I said, I have received no new updates.
Thank you for reading and I hope you can help. Will update soon.
Is this a good question?
