Windows 7: laptop BSODs, several hours apart, unknown cause

02 Mar 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

The computer just bluescreened again, and it turns out its done it a few times since I thought it was fixed, just not with me, so I didn't know. I looks to have only happened a few times, and it seems like its usually when the computer is beening woken up from hibernation.

Looks to be the same old problem, all recent dumps are same error code and all blame nvidia drivers, have a look at this snip, its a summary of all your crashes

Heres an output of the most recent one but they are all identical, i have highlighted the important parts

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff8800f8b8310, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8802235d308, Exception Record Address

First you can see the actual driver reports to not be loaded properly, this can sometimes indicate a problem with the driver not being installed properly or is not compatible on some level

The last part you can see tells us the driver is dated from oct 2012 so is not the latest, the problematic one was dated around dec 12/jan 13 but i believe that has now been superceded so it may be worth trying one last update as before

Update your graphics drivers to the latest ones, its best to uninstall old drivers then run Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling then install new drivers from here Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers option 2 is easiest as will auto detect what you need.

Failing that some manufacturers make custom modded drivers for there machines (dell for eg) so may be worth checking into this also

Lastly you need to keep an eye on your temps for your gfx card as this could still be a hardware fault
If you want to check your card out you could try Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark while checking temps
