I have an Acer Aspire all-in-one, model Z7561. Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Purchased Monday October 17 2011,so is still under warranty.
Blue screen on start up,but recovered and is running fine right now.
An app called "Blue Screen View' shows the error is caused by ;nt kernel & system. Driver
I guess I need a new driver.any suggestions will be most welcome.
My skill level:semi-computer literate. By that I mean I can pretty much get my computer to do what I want, and can usually (eventually) fix faults,although I sometimes need help.
PS I have an app called 'Slimdrivers' whic has identified 17 out of date drivers
. I don't want to install all of them ,just this one.But,I can't recognise it on the list.Any suggestions would be welcome.Would also welcome suggestions for any first rate (FREE) driver repair/update software
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
