Windows 7: Random BSODs sometimes, last occured during bootup.

13 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Right now it's working as it should in my side. Do you have Asus Graphics Switch Installed? Basically what you should have done after installing Windows 7 would be:
1. Install Asus Graphics Switch
2. Select optimus mode in graphics switch and restart
3. Download and install Intel VGA Pineview Driver V8.14.10.2364 for Win7 from there ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Eee- ASUS Eee PC 1015PN
4. Intel VGA driver installation should prompt for restart, do it.
5. after restart run asus graphics switch and select optimus once again, restart
6. download Nvidia Graphics Media Accelerator Driver V8.17.12.5912 for Windows 7 & XP from the same site -> ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Eee- ASUS Eee PC 1015PN.
7. Restart and start installing the latest drivers from asus.
8. After installing all the driver everything should be OK

And, as I know, the Nvidia driver from asus is quite old, if you want the latest nvidia driver YOU STILL NEED TO INSTALL the driver from asus first. After a successful driver install, you may update to the latest driver from NVIDIA site and EVERYTHING SHOULD STILL BE FINE!

So, basically what I meant is that you should try switching to OPTIMUS MODE and make sure your netbook does not get access to the internet as it would download and install the crappy drivers from microsoft. AND THEN INSTALL THE NVIDIA DRIVER FROM ASUS and later you MAY install the latest driver from NVIDIA.
Please respond!

HELP! BSODs right after bootup finishes
I have no idea what's going on... Everything was fine on Friday. I leave, come back, turn it on today (Monday) and it crashes every time. Boots fine in safe mode w/ networking. My catalist control center stops working on bootup right before the crash, too (if that helps). thanks!
