Windows 7: near daily BSOD- possibly video streaming issue?

near daily BSOD- possibly video streaming issue?

Hi- i've been having issues with my laptop BSOD-ing for months now, to varying degrees. it seems that some weeks it will happen as many as 2-3 times a day, while other weeks much more rarely. but recently it seems i can't go 3 days without a crash.

from what i've noticed recently, it always seems to be during video streaming- youtube skype, etc. today it crashed twice in an hour on apple trailers, which is what prompted me to get off my lazy ass and do something about it. However, i've only been paying attention to the video correlation for a week or two, and i watch a lot of videos online, so it may very well be coincidental.

It seems that a negative side effect of buying an expensive warranty for my laptop is that i am really careless with it. it has fallen to the floor while on numerous times, i use it on my bed as it gets hotter and hotter, etc. just a warning that i am aware that this very well may be a physical issue that needs to be corrected. but fingers crossed that its just a shitty driver or something i can correct without having to send it in.

anyway, here are my specs-

Lenovo T-410 bought summer 2010
Windows 7 Home Premium x64- OEM- original os on system

and i've attached the zip folder of dump files.

ps- i ran the performance monitor twice- once right before i did the crash dump thing and a new one immediately after, for good measure. the second one said i'm missing the log of a third of my events- (10,000 files!) is that a side effect of you guys's crash dump thing? is it something to take seriously?

thanks so much in advance!

Intermittent BSOD, possibly video card issue?
Hello, I've recently set up a "new" (refurbished) PC for a client of mine, and it has been intermittently blue-screening with a locale id of 4105 coming up. While I'm pretty competent with computers in general, this is one aspect that I'm not really used to dealing with, so I thought I'd post here...

BSOD (possibly when playing video games)
Hello everyone. I hope someone can help me. Windows 7 x64 Full retail version. Original OS. Brand new system less than 1 week old. OS was also installed less than 1 week ago. As far as I can tell, I get BSOD'd only when playing video games. (Steam is also active.)

Streaming Video Issue...
Ok, so I'll select a file, say "Family Reunion 2009.avi". The video will play, and sometimes it'll "Lag", or sometimes it'll turn to a black screen and stop playing. It does it with all formats, and I have the most trouble with encoded MKV/MP4 Files. Such as my Dragonball Z collection, they're a...

Streaming Video to 360 - Strange Issue
Just a question for anyone else who streams video files to your 360.. The videos are playing OK, but where the thumbnail on the left should be, there is a big O with a slash through it.
