This problem can occur at any time (when i'm browsing the net, playing games or when i am not using my laptop but it is on.)
OS: Win 7 Home premium 64 bit original install OEM
CPU: Intel Core i7 -740qm 1.73GHz
Graphics: NVidia GeForce GTX 460M
I bought this laptop at the beginning of the year.
-This problem has been going on for a few months
-After this issue occurs, when i turn my laptop back on, windows reinstall drivers for all devices attached by USB.
- I have tried numerous system restores, reinstalling or updating some drivers.
No DMP files included in upload try this method.
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
