Windows 7: BSOD playing Diablo 3 (maybe other games), error 0x0000007a

BSOD playing Diablo 3 (maybe other games), error 0x0000007a

found your forum through google. I cant solve my problem
Everytime I'm getting BSODs while playing Diablo 3 for 5-10mins but its happening after I reinstalled Windows 7. I dont have any other games right now to test maybe its caused by Diablo 3 but it worked perfect before the reinstallation. The graphic card driver could also be the problem. I installed a unofficial driver v302.59 from LaptopVideo2Go.***
for my GeForce 8600M GS but its listed as supported.

Hope you can understand my english. I'm thankful for any help!

BTW: The Seven contains files from the SF Diagnostic Tool and Pictures from CPU-Z for more information

Due to the age of your hardware, check it for compatibility with Windows 7: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads -> Download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

Problem Devices:
Android Phone	USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0CA2&MI_01\6&21E53ECD&0&0001	The drivers for this device are not installed.
Please install the above drivers.

Problematic Software:
sdwinsec.exe	c:\program files\spybot - search & destroy\sdwinsec.exe	1020	8	200	1380	23.06.2012 17:17	1,10 MB (1.153.368 bytes)	14.06.2012 17:05

  • Spybot Search and Destroy is not the best malware/spyware utility. Take a look at Good and Free system security combination. for better options (many of which it looks like you already have).

  • We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

For laptops, it is a good idea not to install graphics drivers from any source other than the laptop manufacturer support site for the laptop model. Graphics drivers are especially finicky for laptops since they are designed specifically for that model and its power scheme. Other drivers may, and probably will, cause problems with the power scheme.
