Windows 7: Crash/Restart, Possible Graphics Card Issue?

Crash/Restart, Possible Graphics Card Issue?

Hi Guys,

I wonder if anyone could help me. Recently I've been having issues with my computer randomly crashing or restarting. There's no blue screen as such it just seems to restart.

The Action Centre claims there's a problem with my Graphics card but can't seem to find solutions.

I've attached a folder with the crash logs etc.

Any help would be great thanks,

Nick

Welcome!

It does appear to be a graphics issue. Check out this article on bugcheck 116: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Install these nVidia drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL

I see your very old (2004) Broadcom wireless drivers are blamed. Please update them to the latest version.

Install these chipset drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.51 WHQL

Remove Semantic 2009 (known to cause BSODs on Vista and 7 machines): ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

Replace it with MSE: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks again for taking the time to look at my problem.

I removed the Norton and Installed the MSE. Then I installed the NVIDIA Driver and Chip Sets for a second time but it hasn't helped.

I'm now having an issue with my Graphics Card not working. The Action Center acknowledges there's a problem but doesn't have a solution.

Can anyone recommended any course of action Or a Driver that might work?

I attached the new System File zips etc.

Thanks again

Nick

Here's what the Action Center reports:
Quote:

1. Verify the correct driver is installed.
2. Try updating the drivers using Windows Update.
3. Check with the manufacturer for an updated driver.
4. Attempt to uninstall and then reinstall the device using Device Manager.
Try removing your graphics drivers with Driver Sweeper, then reinstalling these ones: NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL
