Bought a new corsair VS 450W psu and it works flawlessly wit the new adapter, I've updated my guide too. It's running stable and haven't experienced any problems since 3-4 days.

I can say that this is really stable now. Smile

When I turn on certain lights or turn off certain equipment the pc crashes (video tdr failure nvlddmkm.sys).I did several try crash when I operate the extractor hood of the bathroom, or the automatic shutters or the air conditioners.I bought a pair of ferrite bead but the problem does not go away.

I also tried to cover the power cables with aluminum foil, but the problem does not go away.

I have tried both with ferrite and with aluminum. I did like 2 other users on this forum.
Below I put their pictures.

Suggest test a PCE164P-N03 inexpensive mPCIe adapter with better static insulation and/or a different PSU with power filtering.

Thanks for the reply

1) PSU: corsair VS550 is it okay?
2) is it possible to work / play with the PCE164P-N03?

 

is this ok? Amazon PCE164P-N03

I'm going to try ferrite beads tomorrow (hopefully) but wrapping the interconnect cable with aluminum foil worsened the problem by a lot! It now crashes immediately when starting furmark instead of crashing after ~5 minutes. Has anyone encountered the same? Or can anyone explain as to why that would happen?

  • @amirul_aiman, actually I did get ferrite beads and they did nothing. However, I do have a PC with an mpcie motherboard and I tested it with the exp gdc and it worked flawlessly, so I think the issue is from my laptop.

In my case (Lenovo Ideapad 320-15IKB, EXP GDC 8.0 GTX 1050 Ti  400W PSU windows 10 pro 1909) i have same troubles with screen freezing, reboots and black screen and restore with TDR error when clicking ligts switches, freezer restarts e.t.c.

 

1. I bought a cheap UPS and waited for it to be fully charged

2. I attached both a laptop and PSU to it. (only PSU didn't solve the problem)

After that there were only problems with suddenly black screen and restore with TDR error.

3. So i go to the registry  HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers and set key TdrLevel=0 (disable TDR)

 

since then 3 weeks everything is fine

hope this helps someone
