Windows 7: BSOD + Graphics Card

BSOD + Graphics Card

I have been getting multiple blue screen errors and I am about 80% sure that it's the graphics cards. I get these blue screens at complete random. Random such as completely idle on desktop with nothing running, restarting computer, putting computer to sleep, shutting it down, while play a game, etc.

A few errors I can remember are stop errors:

-0x000000a
-0x00000019
-0x000000D1
-0x000000D7

And many more. I was told that it was most likely my graphics card driver, which it's not considering I'm using the computer with only my integrated graphics card now.

Is it my graphics card or no?

My graphics card: NVIDIA 9800 GT (1GB DDR3)

Thanks in advance,
Eblim

Love to help but no dmp files included in the upload. Try this method.



To enable us to 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.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

There is not a minidump folder in the windows folder. Minidumps are in enabled as well.

Thank you for your reply.

If you are using CCleaner, make sure it does not delete dump files.
Check in :\Windows and :\Windows\System32 folders. They sometimes can be ended up in one of those folders.

If there is no Minidump folder in :\Windows, create one as Minidump

The name in the Advance Tab under the startup and recovery settings dump file is called "%SytemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP".

Where would that be located? I'll create a MINIDUMP folder as you requested.
