Windows 7: a few BSOD, reasons for each appear not to be the same

a few BSOD, reasons for each appear not to be the same

Hi I'm new here. I built my system about 3 years ago. But in the last year I've had a few BSOD.

So today I had some time to try and find out what might be the cause. So I found an article at HowToGeek.com that said to run a program called BlueScreenView. What I see when I run this program are nine different dump log files. And not all appear to be the same reason for the BSOD.

I read the Sticky at the top of this forum and have hopefully followed instructions correctly for attaching the files that will help to determine what might be wrong.

So I'll assume that you looked over the files I attached. If so, were all the BSOD associated with the video card driver?

The latest dump pointed to the video card driver as the cause of the BSOD. The other pointed to system driver which are unlikely to cause crashes. I also noticed that your graphics driver was out of date by a year or so, hence the need to update it.

Yes, after looking at that info a bit closer I did not like the fact that it contained info about my IP addresses.
