Windows 7: BSOD on new Win 7 installation.

BSOD on new Win 7 installation.

Hello there forum, upon returning to my pc I found a dialog box stating "windows had just recovered from an unexpected shutdown". As to what I was doing before this happened I can't answer because I left my pc to take a nap and upon resuming from sleep mode I was greeted with this message. May I mind you that it happened before and I did a fresh install of Windows as I had recently installed a new graphics card and I didn't want conflicts with old and new drivers. Could the upgrading my graphics card be the cause? Thanks in advance

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.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* 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.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* 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.

Several things have to be updated before we can even begin to lo0ok for the underlying cause. You have drivers from as far back as 2002

Code:
ultra.sys    10/9/2002 12:29:50 PM        
smwdm.sys    11/29/2005 2:30:22 PM       
secdrv.SYS    9/13/2006 9:18:32 AM        
scmndisp.sys    1/17/2007 5:25:59 AM                           
VSTCNXT3.SYS    10/15/2008 8:29:13 PM

Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

As far as my outdated drivers go how do I go about correcting this. And when I finish running the stress test should I post the stats? Thanks
