Hi CS and welcome.

While it is difficult to give a definative answer from a single minidump your points towards a memory fault caused by your video driver.

Re-installing your driver with the newest version available using the below instructions should help

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Super helpful sir!

I would definitely do that. But before i get my hand dirty (not), I attached several other minidumps, as you can see, all in the last 1-2 weeks, during which I installed SSD (switching from a faulty HHD).

Would you also take a quick look at them and see if it was the same issue or are there several issues together, so i could take care of them all at once

Again, super fast response and helpful forum -- i truly appreciate that!

Hi CS and welcome


You are correct this time it is a classic video card reset (BC116). Basically it means that your computer attempted to reset the video card and failed. A driver re-install using these directions should help
