Windows 7: BOSD when playing video

04 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1
BOSD when playing video

This is my first time actually seeking help from a forum. I have a pretty good working knowledge of computers. Most of my troubleshooting has been resolved by seeking the internet for common problems. This time (after weeks and months) I have reached the end of my rope and hope someone can help me.

My machine (Lenovo T410) works like a dream except for a BSOD’s when trying to play video. I can play flash video just fine. If I try to play a DVD in the DVD player, I get a BSOD as soon as the WMP starts to load the movie. It will also die with mpeg, avi, 3g2 and other various videos within browsers. (Not sure what type they are). This is only the file types that I know for sure. Again, flash videos play fine, in and out of browser. I went as far as disabling windows media player and windows media center and then downloaded other players such as VLC Player to see if this would make a difference. It didn’t. Same crash every time.

I do have a dedicated video card which I disabled in the BIOS to make sure it was not the issue.
Note: My T410 came with Home Premium which I upgraded to Ultimate. They sent me the disk, but with x64 it upgraded (unlocked additional features) with the new serial number without the need of physical upgrade.

I have put together the files in a zip as instructed. I appreciate the time devoted by those that do so much in these forums to help others. I look forward to getting this figured out. Thanks a million.
