Hello and welcome to 7F .

What I'm seeing is the graphics adapter failing to "wake up" from an idle state over several driver
version, your laptop features nVidia's Optimus technology which is designed to conserve power
by switching between the integrated graphics and the more powerful (and power hungry GPU chip)
and that is what the OS is failing to do.

Other Verifier enabled dumps show a couple of drivers at fault, one of which is known
to be BSOD inducing with the 2009 version which you're using, but those are not
the more pressing matter.

I'm pretty sure you can't disable the optimus feature but I'll ask other members for more assistance
on this subject in case there is something I'm unaware of .

Please update the information in your Sevenforums system specs.

The easiest way to do that is to follow this tutorial: System Info - See Your System Specs

Thanks

Thanks,

Is this a custom built machine? Please make one small change to indicate either custom build or manufacturer (HP, Dell, Asus..) and the model # - Click on any members My System Specs link (lower left corner of any post) to see how they entered the information.

You'll have to manually enter the information here
Also, please post the following system information: Speccy snapshot. The more information about your computing environment, the better members can help you find a solution.

Yes my PC is custom built and I don't know how to find out the model number if you could help me with that.

Thanks Chayce,

There is no model # then - it's a custom rig.

Mobo pages posted just for reference.

It has been suggested in other threads that Intel® Smart Response Technology (IRST) might cause BSODs. I've also read posts regarding BSODs with JMicron controllers are present.

Let me look around for more information on that.

I'll probably have to ask for more help, hang tight.

Updating Intel drivers might help, see what the Intel auto-detect option suggests

Support > Intel Download Center

Intel® Driver Update Utility: Automatically scan your system for up-to-date drivers and install them quickly.

Thank you Slartybart .

WindowsChayce, Let's try this shall we?
Quote:
Global Profile Settings
Global profile settings are accessible from
within the NVIDIA Control Panel, under the
Manage 3D Settings->Global Settings
tab.

The Global Settings Preferred graphics processor
attribute value can be either
1) Integrated,
2) High Performance, < We want this to be set as the active setting.
or 3) Auto-select.
When the Preferred graphics processor attribute is set to Integrated, any
application that has a profile which is set to Use global setting, or any application which
does not have an associated profile will render using Integrated Graphics. Likewise,
if set to High Performance, applications matching the same criteria will render using High
Performance Graphics.
If the attribute is set to Auto-select, then the global profile setting
is ignored, and applications with profiles will render using the default value for the
given application, and any other application will render using Integrated Graphics.
Please set that and work with the PC as you would normally and see how things go.
Let us know !
