Windows 7: BSOD at seemingly random times.

BSOD at seemingly random times.

Hey all, thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I recently purchased this MSI laptop about a two weeks ago. At first, I would occasionally crash while playing a video game and I thought nothing of it; however, now it appears I get a BSOD at literally random points in time, whether gaming, watching a movie, or even making a thread to post on here! (happened a few minutes ago).

Attached is the zipped file with quite a few minidumps. A few point to the same file as causing the BSOD, but I have a feeling it may just be pointing at random files to blame.

Fingers are crossed hoping someone can help!

Hello and welcome aboard, Browny .

I would suggest you to to enable driver verifier .

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

information   Information
Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.


If you get another BSOD after enabling driver verifier, please upload it for us.
