Windows 7: BSOD 0x000000d1 0x0000003d

09 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
BSOD 0x000000d1 0x0000003d

I'm having trouble tracking down the source of my problems here. I keep getting freezes accompanied by a loud annoying noise from the speakers, prompting me to shutdown manually, but occasionally getting a proper BSOD result.
I reformatted and reinstalled the OS first, I've been under too much stress to diagnose properly. After updating and getting my drive back in order, the problems persist. Though this suggests a hardware issue, I can't find any part to assign blame to. I ran a full memtest and came up clear. Long story short, I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with the hardware RAM despite the somewhat random nature of the problem. Even IE likes to crash at random, but high end games might decide to run perfectly for hours.
I now suspect some random driver to be causing trouble. Researching the few BSOD codes I could extract suggest an update from Windows Update itself might be causing trouble, some had success reverting a USB driver. That... seems less likely, but I suppose it is possible.

Well, my head is not in the game so I figure I'll throw up some Diagnostic reports on here and see if anyone wants to lend a hand. I've yet to be steered wrong here, and just discussing it often pulls an idea from my own noggin.

SO: random game/browser crashes (app failure) or full freezes (requiring hard reboot) with occasional BSOD includeing error codes 0x0000003d and 0x000000d1

Seems there's a problem with your GFX card.

Do you have onboard video? If yes, plug the cables and tell us if you still get BSOD

Seems that, although my recent reformat solved the issues I WAS having, the sloppy nature of the procedure created new ones.

Upon reading the suggestion to bypass my GPU, I looked deeper into my drivers with a more clear head. Checking Device manager, I noticed undefined devices.
Seems I failed to install proper drivers for my motherboard after that last reformat, and installing the latest driver suite for the motherboard (M3N HD/HDMI 15.45 Win7/Vista 64) seems to have cleared up the problem. I updated some other drivers while I was there, but I assume that was the one causing trouble... not that it matters.

I'm an idiot and failed to check and update my drivers before posting. I'll chalk that up for mental fatigue. Thanks for the reply as ANY reply never fails to jumpstart my brain. In this case, the "surely my GPU hardware is functioning fine... I wonder if it is still under warranty... I'll need to thoroughly verify it is a hardware issue over software before I consider replacement... I'd best check all the relevant drivers... BINGO" finds the proper course of action. Seven Forums wins again, and I didn't even get to using onboard video or sticking another GPU in there.
