Default Something very odd

Hey guys I recently completed building my computer and everything was fine and dandy but about a couple of days ago I started getting the BSOD. I forget exatcly what it reads, something about a page file in nonpaged area and then nvdia.dll at the end, Also when i downloaded rivatuner it says it did not detect any supported drivers, so I'm sure it must something to do with my drivers.I tried reinstalling but nothing happened. Could it be a BIOS problem, because i did'nt touch the BIOS.

I would reinstall your Windows first then see if it solves the problem. IF it still happens, well you can try to update your BIOS to the latest version.

Download DCPro (free) and clean out vid drivers in safe mode.
Double check ram settings volts and timings.
The rivatuner message just means the drivers havn't been put on the list yet, most times RT has worked fine for me when I got that messege.

is there a 750W PSU you can troubleshoot with? I love corsair PSU's but perhaps that 550 isn't putting out the juice?

Usually any reference to a file, means its causing the problem. Boot into safemode, uninstall everything nvidia, run the nvidia cleaner just to be safe - then redownload and install the driver, make sure its for the correct os.
