Windows 7: BSOD every 2-3 days.

So far - 2 days of work and quite a bit of downloading - and no BSOD. I'm not sure what exactly did the trick but something tells me the updating of my usb modem drivers is the key.

Thank you for your help so very much!!!
If anyone needs the drivers and the soft for this particular modem (I doubt but why not...) - let me know I'll send them to you.

Thank you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):):):)

Thanks for the report!

It could be the anti-virus as well. Either way, it was definitely network-related, and I'm glad you got it done with.

If you need anything else, don't hesitate to post.

Hi again
It seems that I have another problem now...
I get BSOD after my screen freezes or once it didn't start and went to BSOD right away. it seemed to be due nvlddmkm.sys. I upgraded the driver but it still happening and now worse then before. My screen actually shut down today for 30 min. Then started working again... (not sure if it's related...)
I'm attaching the dump file (just one this time. I had BSOD before today 2 times but I only got today's dump file for some reason).

Thank you in advance!

Hello again Nina,

I am wondering if perhaps your GPU is overheating. Could you possibly test your temperatures with Speedfan, after some heavy usage?

Does Speedfan test GPU?

Yes, it does, provided the GPU has a sensor.

Thank you for your quick reply!!
Actually yeasterday the screen died completely and for 3 hours there was nothing but just the backlight on it, not even the logo or splash light. Then I removed the battery, pressed power button for 60 sec then pluged computer in and it started. A lso I replaced my nvlddmkm.sys with the one from nvidia folder (nvlddmkm.sy_) by using extract.exe in cmd. Working so far.
I checked the speed as you asked, attached the pictures for you. The one on the left - is the computer at rest, nothing major was running. The other one - the Pinnacle Studio was loading.

Thanks again

I believe those temperatures support my theory. I suggest taking a can of compressed air and blowing out the air vents on the laptop. If you're good with a screwdriver, and don't mind opening up your laptop, you can also try to clean out the dust in there.

If you are dust-free, and still getting temps like that, I recommend investing in a cooling pad.

So you think this nvlddmkm.sys problem comes from the overheating? The freezing of the screen and all?
I actually have a cooling pad (logitech), but I'll go ahead nad open the computer up to clean it.
Thank you again
I'll keep you posted.
