Windows 7: BSOD when leaving computer on for a little while

BSOD when leaving computer on for a little while

I've been getting some BSOD errors relatively frequently recently. This is on a recent (week or two) fresh windows 7 install. x64 full retail version (MSDNAA). My hardware is about 4 years old or so; I've written the hardware details into my profile.

I've upgraded the GPU, SSD, Audio card, RAM, and network card over the years. It appears everything is working hardware-wise, except for the new network card (Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adaptor). The device manager says it's working, but It won't allow me to connect to the internet through the card. I know the hardware is functional however, because I was able to connect with it using an ubuntu live disc. The reason I wanted to upgrade the card was because the motherboard network connection wasn't allowing me to connect at Gb speeds (despite being labeled as NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet). I have also upgraded my Intel SSD with the latest firmware. I'm not sure the problem has anything to do with this, but I figure more information can't hurt.

Hopefully this information will help you help me, I appreciate your time and assistance.

Thank you.

This crash was caused by your video driver. You have verifier enabled and it named the video driver as the cause.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.


Also you should turn off driver verifier to test the new driver.


Let us know if you need help

Thank you ken,

I've deleted my existing verifier settings, downloaded the latest drivers from the NVIDIA website, and was about to clear the old drivers with your suggested software but just wanted to make sure I select the correct ones. There are a few NVIDIA drivers listed:



Should I do the NVIDIA display and PhysX only, or the ATI display as well?

Thanks again : )

EDIT: Also, should I re-enable verifier after installing the new driver?

Hi,

I can see stop code F4 in your DMP, You might want to check out this article:
KB 977178 You receive various Stop error messages in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 when you resume a computer that has a large SATA hard disk

For your question above regarding enable verifier, if BSODs keep coming, yes

I've ignored this problem because it really hasn't come up much, but recently it's been happening about every other night if not every night when I put my laptop to sleep. I think I've attached the zip file with my minidumps correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
