BSOD: Video + BIOS Update or Thunderstorm?

On a VAIO F11 laptop, I updated my video driver yesterday, the BIOS this afternoon after Sony issued a notification about possible overheating & the fix & a few minutes ago there was a thunderstorm nearby & I got a BSOD. The laptop is connected in an UPS & wired to the ASDL router.

I attached the .dump file, maybe you guys can help me to determine the cause?

Thanks for your time.

Look like you have all drivers up to date. The bugcheck code 3B, this usually indicate system service, device drivers, graphic card....(may be memory?). Does BSoD occur frequently after the thunderstorm? I would wait for the next BSOD...
You have this old driver, please update it, Window 7 doesn't like out of date driver:
Code:
SFEP     SFEP.sys     Fri Aug 03 12:35:53 2007 (46B2BEB9)
It belongs to Sony Firmware Extension Parser driver, please download and install fresh copy of it

Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff800033ee0f3, fffff88007e67dd0, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!ExFreePoolWithTag+43 )

Thanks Tuan for your reply, I'll check it out & report.

BSOD is extremly rare on my VAIO F Series, the last time it was due to an ExpressCard/34 Powered eSATA with the infamous JMB36X JMicron chip.

"...I would wait for the next BSOD" - Hopefully it will take for ever.

I have seen BSODs sometime occur to protect your data etc...I've seen it occured and haven't come back again (on my friend's computer) for quite long.

Will keep in touch
