First BSOD on Ultrabook Laptop W7

I was just playing a game which I doubt is optimized correctly but I ran into a BsoD just now.
Not sure how to address the issue myself since I don't know how to open a dmp file but here goes.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 10d
BCP1: 000000000000000A
BCP2: FFFFF80000B9C970
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFFA8007463E40
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

Files that help describe the problem:

I was not able to grab CPU-Z or MSINFO32,
the link was a misdirect and the msinfo32 always led to some sort of crash with sfdiagnostic tools.

I'm unsure what the driver is related to, please upload the MSINFO32 file, so I check which program it belongs to:
  1. Start
  2. Type: msinfo32
  3. File, Save
  4. Place the file into a zipped folder
  5. Upload in your next post - Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

my msinfo32 crashes when trying to save or export.

It will attempt to and hang halfway into the load then crash.

What should I do to get you your information?

Open a elevated command prompt, and then type this command:

Ok that command seems to create the file and open up msinfo32. I still however cannot save or export. The txt file is there but it is completely empty.

On the other hand, I am almost done copying and pasting everything msinfo32 has into a notepad but it is very difficult to navigate through without the find function.

I also pinpointed the problem to the display tab in msinfo32. Whenever the loading bar gets there or I click on it msinfo32 will crash.

I have uploaded what I could organize well enough under notepad.

The tab for software is not in this list and I am trying to find a way to accurately and cleanly organize what it says.

Thanks for the file, I have an idea, load the MSINFO32 file and then type in the kbdsim.sys driver into the search box (Find What), and then copy and paste what the driver links to.

Wow! I must have bad luck, when I did that msinfo32 crashed.
I believe anything that queries / checks the display tab will crash my msinfo32.
I am attempting to search manually. (Which is working out)


NAME: kbdsim
FILE: c:\windows\system32\drivers\kbdsim.sys
TYPE:Kernel Driver

Update: I have searched every single tab using the find function except the display tab that crashes msinfo32. This was the only successful search.

The driver may be related to a program called Blue Eye Macro, I would either remove the program or check for any updated versions of the program if you have it installed.
