That could be causing it.
Il do what you say and post the results later. Thanks for the suggestions.

You can also try this fix after installing the driver:
Go to windows/system32/drivers and rename nvlddmkm.sys to nvlddmkm.sys.old. Go to the nvidia directory and find the file nvlddmkm.sy_and copy it to windows/system32. Using the cmd window type EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys. When the expansion is complete, copy the new nvlddmkm.sys to windows/system32/drivers. Then restart the computer.

The uninstalling and reinstalling drivers won't delete the old nvlddmkm.sys files, it won't overwrite it with the new file version, too. This must be do manually. I found this fix on the net when I was searching for the fixing my machine. Now I run the stock Nvidia driver on my present notebook without any problem. My motto is: If ain't broken don't fix it.

Hope it will fix your machine. Cheers...
It keeps saying can't open input file nvlddmkm.sy_

What are the normal temps for p-6831fx unplugged?
post #1375 of 2327
So i was just on the gateway live chat looking for help. i told them i seemed to have high temps( idle around 70c and under load up to 100c). And this guy said he did'nt think that was too high. Now im no computer whiz but to me that seems high and based on what ive read here it certainly is.

Yeah, that's pretty high even for a laptop, mine never idols higher than 60c.

When's the last time it was given a thorough cleaning?

I bought it refurbished only a week ago so dust in the vents or fan seems unlikely. What are your cpu temps idle and under load? Ive read on this thread people reporting 40c idle and 60c running games.

Ive ran 3 different monitors although speedfan seems to report a slightly lower temp than the others it still reaches well above 80c just browsing the net.

Is your CPU usage at idle high?

I think your GPU HSF might be clogged with dust. Feel if there is any air blowing through the heatsink where the gpu is

I sent it back, getting a replacement. It actually gave out on me, i contacted the shop that i bought it from telling them the problem and once again i was told by these supposedly in the know people to ignore it and keep using it. So i did and it just went dead after a couple of hours. Then i demanded a replacement, it was his advice after all.

I'm actualy shocked by the incompetence of these technicians. My local tech ran a diagnostics the day before telling me it was fine which i insisted he was wrong about.
He asked me where i got my info and i told him the net(you guys) and he said pay no attention. Good advice huh.
