Windows 7: BSOD - Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop

BSOD - Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop

Hi, I get random BSODs from time to time... I suspect it's something to do with my video card drivers for my vostro 1500's 8400m gs but i'm not sure. I used the ones listed on nvidia. Device manager shows no driver problems.

Any help would be appreciated, dump files attached.

Win7 Ultimate X64

Both dumps report 0x124 error BSOD Index

I would start by checking fans and heatsinks are clean of dust and checking system temps

Thanks for your help.

My temps seem acceptable and the fan was working fine and vents were clean but i took a vacuum to it anyways. According to Everest the temps are:

44 for chipset
43 for aux
42 for DIMM / ram
51 for GPU
35 for HDD

i can't get accurate temps for my CPU because it was an engineering sample with improper sensor (shows as 25)

all temps in celsius. I had this BSOD with win 7 before, but I did something like update a driver and it went away... but i had to reinstall win 7 for other reasons and BSOD returned. I will mess around with drivers again
