Windows 7: BSOD after hardware change

BSOD after hardware change

For the past two days, I've been getting BSOD on my PC for the first time in months. It did it twice yesterday and twice in about three hours this morning. Each time it has occurred when I'm watching a video on Hulu. The screen goes distorted, and I just hear this buzzing noise from my speakers that continues after the bsod hits. Makes me think it has something to do with my graphics card.

Last week, I installed a brand new network card in my computer. Not sure if that has anything to do with this. However, I did have to remove my graphics card temporarily to move some cables around and fit the new card in place.

And two days ago, I updated to the latest drivers for my graphics card. Next day the first two BSODs hit, so I rolled back the drivers. But the BSOD is still hitting me now.

I've attached my dump to the file, and hoping some of you people can help point me to the source of the issue.

Thanks!

Hello Gossamer!

The zip you uploaded does not contain any dimp files.

You make it sure that a crash creates a dump.
  1. Go to Advance System Setting
  2. Under Performance .. click on setting ...
  3. Go to Advanced Tab and then under virtual memory click change
  4. check "Automatically Manage paging file size for all drives"..... click Ok and ok
  5. and if asked to restart do so....

Now you should be able to create a minidump on a computer crash.

Upload it in the next time

Huh, I already have that option checked. Not sure why it didn't create a dump file. Double-checked my settings to, and it should be creating kernel dumps.

Okay, so taking a closer look at the BSOD. It says "Uncorrectable hardware error". The screen shows it making a dump file, but I can't actually find it on my computer. Searched my files for .dmp files, but the last one I have is from April.
