Windows 7: BSOD randomly occuring. I cannot find it happening with specific prog.

BSOD randomly occuring. I cannot find it happening with specific prog.

I get bluescreen, but not during using any particular program at the moment. I'm not 100% sure if Mozilla Firefox has been on every time the crash happens. This started about 3 weeks ago. Perhaps twice a week at first, then 4 times yesterday. Nowadays it happens every day.

When it has happened, I have usually been listening to music with DVD player or watched streaming videos in the net (youtube or other streaming).

I ran 2 different memory tests.

Sometimes, the computer crashes once per day, sometimes 4 times in 15 minutes. Then again, I've used the computer without crash for 10 hours straight! I simply do not understand the problem.

I've enclosed the asked DM Log Collector result and I've managed to snap 1 photo of the bluescreen, which sadly misses a few letter/numbers (it's can only be seen for a few seconds each time).

Hello Lane and welcome to 7forums (Suomi!)

Hm from the screenshot it seems you have driver verifier enable which is mostly used when you want to know what is causing the BSOD not the other way around O_o but you can follow this:

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Thank you Boris, I'll have to try disabling the driver verifier then.



EDIT: Oh, didn't see your flag when I wasn't logged in Kippis!!!

Okay, I tried to disable the driver verifier as told in the instructions. When I go to "display existing settings", every line on the left hand read "no". Is it now as it was meant to be with those instructions?

This crash is called DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION what refers to driver verifier caught a driver that was misbehaving.
Yet this crash may appear with and without driver verifier enabled as the description says

NOTE: May occur in Win7 and later w/o Driver Verifier being enabled

Thanks axe0.

One thing I now notice, although BSOD index reads it's for Vista, is that I had a cord plugged into USB port! Hmm, I took it off earlier today, and voila: no crashing after it. I listened to music again on DVD drive and watched streaming video. No crashing...

Okay. was away for a few days. Now, something happened, and I think it might have been the reason for BSOD:

I got a message from Windows, that said "Graphic card stopped responding". Before this, the screen went black for a second or two.

When I had this BSOD, the picture swapped between my monitor and my television, to which the PC is also connected to. If I had worked on my monitor, I had to turn on the telly to check out if the PC screen was on it and type my password...

So, I think I need a new graphics card...

You could try updating/reinstalling/trying older versions of the drivers, then try another graphics card.
