BSOD assistance needed. Seems sleep related?

Hello, I believe I am getting a BSOD when the computer goes to sleep (it is my Dad's of course so it is hard to tell) and I tried removing the new memory that was installed and went back to the old memory which didn't help. Also disconnected my DVD drive which didn't help. Please take a look at the dump file. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Please uninstall Norton. Norton tends to cause BSOD-s and often in the situation you describe. Please uninstall it the Norton Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test. You may install it back if we know it wasn't the reason of the crash.

Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.


Perform a System File Check:
  • Click on the
  • Type CMD on Search
  • Left click and Run as Administrator
  • Type SFC /scannow
Full tutorial here:

Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:

Update the video card drivers:
Code:
Driver	c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys (8.17.12.5896, 12.58 MB (13,187,176 bytes), 7/10/2010 6:38 AM)
METHOD:
Quote:
Click on the Start ► Control Panel ► Programs ► Uninstall a program ► Uninstall everything related to; NVIDIA and restart the system. Delete remnants of its drivers/older drivers using Driver Fusion/Sweeper
Link: NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products


Reduce items at start-up. Nothing except anti-virus is required:POst back results.

upgrading the video driver seems to have done the trick. <cross fingers>. No BSOD since that change. Thanks KK for the help!
