Hello to you all at Tom Hardware. I've got a major problem with my computer.
Please forgive the long message, as I simply don't know what maybe relevant to solve this.

My computer simply will not boot windows 10 as of approx 12th of February 2021.

However first of all this is my computer spec:
ASUS P9X79pro (LGA 2011)
Intel core i7 3930k Sandy Bridge 3.2GHz
Cosair 4x4GB vengeance DDR3
EVGA Nvidia GTX560Ti

2 weeks prior to the problem, I upgraded RAM to 4x8GB Cosair cmy16gx3m2a1600c9r vengeance pro series DDR3 1600Mhz. And for a week plus the machine functioned without a issue. Then windows released a cumulative update from windows 10, and almost a day later I run into problems.

Windows simply would not boot as normal.

Instead BSOD screens occurred with either nvlddmkm.sys failure, or win32base.sys or PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA etc

Eventually after alot of going and froing removing all other drives, so only the ssd dvd drive are present. Trying both the original 16GB ram and the new RAM etc.
I went for a clean installation of windows10 both from my windows USB or from windows creation media tool. Both failed to boot windows, instead cycling through its 3 attempts then reverting to the blue screen with troubleshooting options.

I can boot windows into Safe Mode, and have run sfc /scannow, DISM.exe clean-image tests. I updated drivers via iobit, dud various memory tests via windows internally, and memtests utilities. The Ufei bios didn't show errors with any of the RAM or other hardware still attached to the motherboard.

Just for the hell of it, I also made a clean install of windows 7 with no problems booting up windows, and no crashes. However when I upgraded to windows 10 from there it reverts back to the same failure to load windows 10.

I fixed the missing nvlddmkm.sys code in c:/windows/system32/drivers folder, created from the via Nvidia drivers website.
This did work only once in booting windows, but soon crashed. Returning to the troubleshooting page.

Could there be a conflict with my graphics card?

People have suggested plugging the monitor directly to the motherboard as it might be a graphics card issue, but I cannot see how to do this.

Or has the recently released windows10 update caused this problem? (Wouldn't clean installation solve this?). There have been reports of recent updates causing BSOD loops but for different reasons than mine?

So I hoping someone here on your forum my have a suggestion of a way to solve this riddle.

I thankyou all in advance for any advice you may have as to how I can solve this issue.

All the best

Will

You say that you booted into safe mode, have you tried reinstalling the drivers?
Yes I've used "iobit driver booster" to search for and update all the out of date drivers. A total of 73.
I've also gone directly to the Nvidia drivers site to download the most up to date nvidia drivers.

But as Nemesia has pointed out and I've subsequently researched the geforce gtx560Ti card is classed as EoL by nivdia. With drivers not updated pasted 2018. It begs the question why did it fail just now? When its run fine for so long after the last driver update of 2018?
As Nemesia it maybe a conflict with the new update of 2021.

It may explain the BSOD failure of nvlddmkm.sys which is nvidia too.

Or the ability to boot windows 7, but not windows 10. Mmmm

I'm in the process of sourcing a graphics card to test this issue.

Thankyou very much for your suggestions

Why are you trying to install third party software to "boost" speeds? Its never a good idea to try get more speed out of them than the manufacturer had intended it to go, this is probably the reason for the problem you're having

I'm not looking to boost the any speeds with third party installations, merely using the "iobit driver booster" to detect out-of-date drivers replace them with the most up-to-date version on my machine..

The GTX650i is a very old gfx card, there is no point in trying to search for new drivers for it. Nvidia have stopped support for it, no need to search for more
