BSOD Playing Dragon Age: Origins, error 0x0000007E in dxgmm1s.sys

I had just started playing DA:O when all of a sudden I get a BSOD, no other games have given me any problems in this year.

Your nVidia driver has been flagged.

fffff880`02bd2460  fffff880`10144aa0Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Download this earlier version from here and follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems for the cleanest possible install.

Uninstall DaemonTools, a known cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
3. Double click the executable to open it
4. Click the button shown below

If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.

This seemed to work, can you recommend a good alternative to DaemonTools?

Off the top of my head I can't. Start a thread in General or Software to see if any of our other members can, but don't use any software that uses SPTD.

Glad to hear your BSODs are fixed, could you please mark the thread as Solved if you're happy the issue is resolved.
