BSOD, could be related to drivers needing to be updated.

Hello everyone. I have been getting BSOD's a lot lately, and I believe it could be due to some of my drivers needing to be updated. However, I have included a Mini-Dump for further examination, and to possibly rule it out completely. Help would be appreciated. Thank you so much. As mentioned, I believe it could have to do with updating my drivers... and I'm not very tech savy, so if anyone could recommend on how I can manually do it safely would be great.

Hello - thank you for the warm welcome!

OK - I figured this driver has been the root cause. I took a look at the page and am slightly confused as to which one I should be downloading.

Is there anyway you could help navigate me to the right one? If there's any information I can provide to make this easier, please let me know.

Cheers!

Hello. Sorry about that. Here's the updated Zip file. The grab all option just kept copying the DMP files , so I did it all individually. The system info button didn't seem to work, as it said the file couldn't be found. So I used a program provided through the form here to just manually add in everything about my system in a text file. The last two buttons in the program didn't seem to work either.

Hope there's enough info in here to help you out OK. If there's anything else I can do, let me know.
