Windows 7: Random BSODs - Sorry, won't know the error code till it happens again.

10 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSODs - Sorry, won't know the error code till it happens again.


I have followed the instructions on this site and attached the zip file I create with SF Diagnostic Tool. Unfortunately I can't post the info that popped up after the crash in windows until I next get the bsod. Next time it happens I shall edit this post with the info.

I am not good with these kinds of things and really need help at finding out whats causing the crashes. This is my main workstation I wish to start using (its a new build pc) for 3ds max/v-ray work. I have reformated and reinstalled windows twice and it's still happening, I really hope it's something simple like a driver issue. The system is a Gigabyte mobo z77-ds3h, 16gig 1600mhz ddr3 ram, i7 3770K ivybridge, running win7 ultimate x64.

I really hope someone can help as this is becoming a pain and I really need to get some work done
Many thanks to anyone who takes the time to help me, it is much appreciated.
Kind regards

Please uninstall:
Start Menu	Default:Start Menu	Default
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public
Known to cause problems with W7.

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+f5b87 )
Seems to be blaming your display driver. Please uninstall, and reinstall with the latest version.

After post back results.
