Windows 7: BSOD / "Lockups" Dump File Review Request

BSOD / "Lockups" Dump File Review Request

Hello all,

I was hoping I could get one of you to take a look at my minidump file (attached). I'm getting intermittent BSODs (although it typically just manifests as a "lockup" rather than actually taking you all the way to the blue screen). The event log has been pretty unhelpful, but I have noticed a pattern where I see messages relating to the video and network drivers at roughly the time of the BSOD. I manually updated all of my drivers (although it seems odd that the installation didn't handle that). Knock on wood, but I haven't had another ocurrence as yet.

Thanks very much for the look!

Here is another poster with an equivalent problem in terms of symptoms, though the cause in their case is almost certainly different:

You may wish to review the info in that thread in case the crash repeats itself.

Default "Browse for file" location in web browser "choose file" box
Hi, how can I change this? Some background - this may not be the issue I need to solve at the end of the day: I believe the location is causing crashes, since I blew up lots of Library registry values (in an attempt to remove them from the OS), and I think it defaults to the library page....
