Windows 7: Random BSODs - started after fresh Win 7. NVIDIA drivers at fault?

Random BSODs - started after fresh Win 7. NVIDIA drivers at fault?

Hey all!
So, during Christmas, I received an 850 Pro as a gift. After the upgrade, I installed a fresh copy of WIn 7 ULtimate, as well as all the required drivers. I started experiencing BSODs after I put the computer to sleep or wake it up. It does not happen all the time, but 3 out of 5.
Blue Screen Reder shows NVIDIAs drivers to be the cause. Not sure what to do, because I did downgrade to earlier gpu drivers that worked before.
The system was rock solid before the upgrade and fresh install.
The logs are attached, as per instructions.
Really hope someone can help me out, thanks in advance!

Hi There,

You are right about the Nvidia drivers, Uninstall that one for now.

Seeing as this is laptop your best option is to just install what ever driver Microsoft finds through windows update.

It may get offered in the several rounds of updates you are missing as well as SP1,

Code:
Host Name:                 DIODIA-PC
OS Name:                   Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 
OS Version:                6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
OS Manufacturer:           Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration:          Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type:             Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner:          diodia
That should be the first thing you do, get SP1 and all the updates following it.

Downloading SP1 now. If I uninstall NVIDIAs driver though, the laptop is virtually useless due to really bad resolution... Any workaround?

Actually, don't even bother with that right now, just get SP1 and all your updates installed.

Installed SP1 as well as all the updates associated with it (ran the update twice, because the update had to update...) Unless there is a quick way to check for stability, I will have to monitor it for a week or so, to see if the previous behavior of BSODs has changed. Thanks for the help so far!

You're welcome.

Yeah, just monitor it and see how things go, there might be more updates that become available too.

Let us know how things go.
