Hello

I have these random Blue Screens for long time. I re-installed the laptop and these random Blue Screens remains mainly when starting up or first minutes up.

Asus N61Vn
Win 7 Professional x64
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9000 : 2 GHz
Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset +ICH9M
DDR3 1066 MHz, 4GB SDRAM
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT240M , with 1GB VRAM

Can you help me to figure out what could be the causes?
Many ttanks.

Hi amandioantao,

Welcome to the 7forums.

As all the crashes are 0x116(VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE) or 0x117(VIDEO_TDR_TIMEOUT_DETECTED) the crashes are as it looks right now caused by the graphics drivers.
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from your manufacturer ASUS. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.
Below is just for later reference.
Code:
0: kd> lmvm nvlddmkm
start             end                 module name

Hi there,

I have bad news. Unfortunately the laptop keeps freezing. But now is not saving dump files.
Any tips?

Thanks very much.

A freeze is not a bluescreen.
What are you doing at time of the crash?

Yes, you are right. Let me explain.
When I first started my post, I had blue screens. After video driver change the laptop started with these freezes. It does not allow me to do anything else than power off the laptop. This happen mostly in the windows welcome screen. When I manage to get inside windows session this freezes happen randomly. I can not tell you a pattern because there is not one. What a problem!!!!

Axe0, I appreciate your time on it. Many thanks.
