Windows 7: Freezing after startup (Not in Safe Mode)

02 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Freezing after startup (Not in Safe Mode)

Hi, I've been working on this problem for about 5 days now.
I have a compaq presario SR100
Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64
AMD Anthlon 64 3500+ Processor
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics Card

I've had this machine for about 3 years now, and it's been running Windows 7 for close to a year. This was the same OS and version as i just put on. I did a routine reformatting to help speed up my computer. Setup ran smooth until it was preforming initial setup, where is had a BSOD (Driver_irq_not_less_than_or_equal). I haven't had a single BSOD since. After startup everything ran smooth. It wasn't until my first update where i began to have some issues. After startup (3 minutes in) my PC would begin to lag completely. This would occur for about 5 minutes until it would completely freeze, requiring hard boot. nothing else has been installed besides Windows Updates.

I have the minidump file here

And the Event Viewer Log of my machine the run where it did freeze up. There are a lot of, Installing Failed, errors but that's most likely because i cancelled the installer at one point.

If there's anything else needed i'll be happy to provide.

Your .dmp file is blaming nvlddmkm.sys( nVidia Video drivers) as the cause of this crash... Completly remove the drivers with DriverSweeper and install the latest version ... Your current driver is from May, 2009

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
