Take them one-by one.

To update the nVidia drivers, use the widget at the bottom of this post.

Don't worry about pcouffin.sys, spldr.sys, gearaspiwdm.sys, or amdxata.sys. They are Windows drivers, and there is no way/need to update them.

You no longer need to worry about the Semantec drivers, as you uninstalled Semantec earlier.

The only other one you need to worry about is RTKVAC.SYS, which is your Realtek AC '97 driver. Look on your computer manufacturer's site for an update to your audio drivers.

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

No DMP files enclosed


We really need the actual DMP file.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

BSOD

I have an attached zip for someone to see what is causing my windows 7 to have a BSOD, I recently unistalled Nortons and put on Kaspersky Internet Secuirty 2011, im not sure what causing these blue screens unless my motherboard is the culprit. It was designed to run on XP. I did upgrade to Win 7 a few months back.

My pc is custom built it has a ECS Motherboard 2GB of DDR2 200gb HDD Nvidia 5200FX video card 1.6 Duo core processor
