Windows 7: Unknown BSOD's in my daughters comp

Unknown BSOD's in my daughters comp

My daughter was having problems, and after some discussion I realized she was having BSOD problems, apparently a lot of them. I have not witnessed any of them, and she knows mostly nothing about computers so could not describe what had happened.

I have checked her updates, and Window's, Avast and Malwarebites are all up to date and have been run recently. I THINK the drivers are up to date as well.

Dump files are attached, and CPUZ as well.

One of the cause of the BSoD can be outdated drivers for the NVIDIA card,
0: kd> lmvm nvlddmkm
start    end        module name
9301e000 93a9bdc0   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys
    Image name: nvlddmkm.sys

Please follow either of the method below for re-installation of latest drivers:

Option 1
  1. Download and install Driver Sweeper:
    |MG| Driver Fusion (Driver Sweeper) 1.2.0 Download
  2. Select option 2 for NVIDIA.
    Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
  3. Boot into Safe Mode from Advanced Boot Options:
    Advanced Boot Options
  4. Type in Driver Fusion in Search
  5. Remove all components of your NVIDIA drivers
  6. Boot normally now, and install the latest drivers from the
    auto-detect program you downloaded.
    (Requires Java)

Option 2
Direct Download (from unofficial website):
Download NVIDIA Forceware 306.23 WHQL Vista 64 - for 64 Bit windows
Download NVIDIA Forceware 306.23 WHQL Vista - for 32 Bit windows

Use the common way for uninstalling via Control Panel -> Programs -> Uninstall a program

I'd recommend Microsoft Security Essentials in place of Avast! antivirus.
It's known to cause BSoDs on some systems.

In addition, Run this tool and delete anything it finds:
Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

Run the system file checker for finding and fixing the integrity of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run Disk Check on the hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:
Disk Check

Keep us posted, good luck

Thanks Koolkat,
I set up a backup drive for her to backup her music and pic's and such, and when the backup is done I will run the rootkit etc, and update the drivers. Last time she had a virus we ended with corrupt file names, and lost a lot of files (thus the new backup drive).

This may take a day or so, she is working a double shift today.

I switched my laptop from Avast a while ago, but her computer ran for a long time without any problems, so I am going to hold off for now. Both my desktops have had no problems (well, not that I knew of till recently) If the errors are consistent with what I saw on my laptop, I will switch her to MSE.

My dad has expensive construction software that he needs on a day to day basis, but his laptop is dying and very slow. Currently his laptop runs Vista x86, and I wanted to give him my laptop that runs 7 x64. Could I swap the hard drives so that its an easy transition, or would that not work? Thanks...
