    2-GPU NVIDIA GTX295 (Driver:342.01) Suddenly Shows Only 1 GPU Active


    In my rather ancient system I've been happily using both GPU's of my GTX295 for years (10+) and suddenly this week I only see 1 core registering in Nvidia Control Panel and Device Manager etc.
    As I never got any temperature alerts I can only assume 1 core has failed. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the driver. Am I right?

    Remaining core is happily running at 60 -80C. Windows is totally up to date: 20H2 v19042.782

    Sorry, just realized this should be in the next section. My bad.

    :)

  2. BSOD after the NVIDIA GPU is activated

    For the past month i've been struggling with an issue on my laptop, related to its GPU.

    Whenever my NVIDIA GPU and the Intel GPU are activated, and the NVIDIA GPU isn't under stress for about 5 minutes, (by "under stress" I mean using programs that require detailed graphics and a lot of graphical processing) the BSOD will appear showing the
    message error "NMI_HARDWARE_FAILURE".

    Somehow I've tackled the issue of the BSOD by deactivating the NVIDIA GPU and solely use the Intel GPU, whenever I feel the NVIDIA GPU isn't required for my actions.

    Even so, it is annoying to have to activate/deactivate the NVIDIA everytime i need it.

    I have already used programs such as WhoCrashed and BlueScreeView to understand better the causes of these crashes. Those programs say that the leading cause of the BSOD are the files "hal.dll", "ntoskrnl.exe" and "PSHED.dll".

    I would like to know if there is a way to correct these errors and how should I proceed to correct them.

    My laptop specs are:

    Acer Aspire 7 A715-72G-79XK

    CPU: Intel i7-8750H

    GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050

    RAM: 16GB

  4. 2-GPU NVIDIA GTX295 (Driver:342.01) Suddenly Shows Only 1 GPU Active

    Screen goes black on NVIDIA GPU 1 in apps.

    In my device, there are two graphics processing units one is Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 as GPU 0, and other is NVIDIA GeForce 940MX as GPU 1. In most of applications and games, when I switch GPU 1 and start to use the app, the screen goes black. But still
    apps continuous to run, as detected from there sound effects.
