BSOD Video driver crashing

Q: BSOD Video driver crashing

I am running windows 7 Home 32bit. My Laptop is Samsung r530. The Video driver (Mobile intel 4 series has been repeatidly crashing since last month or so. I have just updated it as well but the problem is still there. The BSOD occurs from few minutes to several hours after booting.

Please see the attached performance and dump reports.
(NOTE: I haven't reinstalled the windows since last 1.5 years and it is the same OEM windows that came with the laptop.

Preferred Solution: BSOD Video driver crashing

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD Video driver crashing

These were related to audiodg.exe A known problem especially before SP-1 is installed. You may have to google the problem as I dont remember the exact cause (has something to do with enhancements)

In addition to the Audiodg please update these old drivers.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hi all,
I am playing some tutorial videos on Vimeo through a website - however the videos crash after just a minute or two - with the message...AMD driver has stopped working - now recovered. The video can then be played with soundtrack only - no video??
My computer is a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC - 64bit OS - running Windows 7 Home Premium.
Is it also possible to turn off (remove?) the AMD Driver - and just use Windows Video Player (however this sometimes crashes too
on other videos - but it plays the vision and sound when it recovers.(should this Windows Driver be updated too - if so - Where? How?
Any help and suggestions greatly appreciated...
I have tried to download a Free AMD Driver update - including in the search term - "Free AMD Driver update from original manufacturer".
There are many AMD driver updates - all claim to be Free and authorized versions.  However, they all seem to ask you to 'register' - name and email - and the Free Driver download is usually free for only 7 days.  Question: Is there really a Free download for the AMD driver - or will I just have to pay to get it updated?
Also, could I remove the AMD driver / program - and just use the Windows Media Player? Would it still work on Vimeo?
I do notice the Windows Media Player also crashes at times - but when it recovers - it plays both video and soundtrack. Maybe it needs a driver             ... Read more

Hey folks, I posted a day or two ago with a very specific problem, a STOP error I start receiving ONLY after installing drivers for my Radeon 9800 Pro 256bit/256mb video card.. The stop error is "STOP 0x0000007E(0x00000005,0x00000000,0xF7C8270C,0xF7C8240C)"

My computer had started to freeze up, so I reformatted and now this. Well, I put the card in another computer, and the same thing happens only after updating the driver. I can't find any information, and I'm actually trying to contact Sapphire for repairs, or a return.. But I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas, or opinions. Do you think the card is damaged? Could it be a card bios problem? I had flashed the bios to XT ones, but flashed back to a newer PRO one. Not sure why it would just go bad after so long, unless its become seriously damaged.

Hi! I'm having some trouble with my display driver crashing when video files are played. Sometimes the driver recovers, but other times it ends with a BSOD.

I am running Windows 7 x64, 4gb RAM and a ATI Radeon HD5870 with up-to-date drivers

The driver crashes when
- an embedded video, such as on youtube, attempts to play
- during the Windows Experience Index tests (fails during video processing)
- playback of some video files in Windows Media Player (error message states not enough memory)

The video files in the Windows/Performance/WinSAT folder for example don't all crash.

These all crash in WMP:

This doesn't:

They ALL play in PowerDVD 8 and Quicktime.

The BSOD log's also point to one particular driver, dxgkrnl.sys

The ATI driver is up-to-date and I've tried updating DirectX as well. Even tried reinstalling the OS over the top of the existing installation.

Any ideas would be great because I'm all out!

Are you overclocking your video card?

Read other 9 answers

Recently I have been experiencing frequent crashes in-game followed by 5-10 seconds of hang time. When I first built my PC last Christmas I would never have one, but in the last month or two it is almost every time I play. I posted the kinds of errors I get in the picture below. If I don't crash I usually get artifacts in game, distorted and glitched images, instead.

I believe it is caused by either my Memory (1GB Corsair PC-5300 (667Mhz) Value RAM)
or my video card ( Evga, Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS 256Mb)

I temporarily had access to 2GB more PC-5300 but it was from a different brand not Corsair, but I thought what the hell and put it in with my other RAM while I had them. I no longer do and am back to my 1GB Corsair PC-5300 (667Mhz) Value RAM.
I did try to overclock my video card but not with the intention to keep it over clocked, just to see what performance it could achieve.

I did both of these things around the same time so I don't know when it started.

It could be drivers or other settings in Windows XP but I doubt it because I just reformatted a few days ago and still crash just as much as I did before reformatting.

My guess is the memory but I'm not 100% sure. Any Ideas what I should do first?

Maybe I'll do a stress test.

Hey guys,

I realy need your help with this. I've already updated the drivers, and even tryied a previous version, but just keep crashing in the windows 8.1, Thanks!

A:Nvidea Video Driver Crashing in WIndows 8.1

There are no crash dumps included in the file you posted. If you disabled your pagefile, re-enable it so the system can make crash dumps.

For now, really the only advice I can give is to install all latest drivers from motherboard site, even if Windows 7 drivers are the latest, and uninstall both ESET and McAfee, then use their removal tools from their sites also.

Set Windows Defender and Windows Firewall to Automatic and start them too.

That should take care of the 0x117 tdr timeouts I see. (Video going down, crashing the system because it could not restart.)

Hello. Is anyone else getting video driver crashing in W10 on a Lenovo ThinkpadP50? I just got it last Tuesday. So far, I didn't get any get hardcrashes. I just get a brief pause and then its bottom right notificationabout its video driver crashing and restarting. I have all the updates from Windows Updates. I read that MS providedrivers from there? Is it because of the heat (almost 90F degrees in myroom during the heat waves)? Thank you in advance.

My computer is pretty decent. an fx-850 8core/4gh, r280x and 10gb ram. here's the issue. I'll be playing a game and it will crash. screen goes black, resolution is refreshed, audio remains. sometimes I get a message "your video driver has crashed and has recovered". firs thing you should know is that some of my games don't do this at all such as darksouls 2. shadow of mordor usually does this over an hour into. Lords of the fallen usually takes half an hour but it just happened within 10 minutes. Here's the tricky part. Alien isolation did it as well but after turning down the graphics it does not do it at all. So I figure this solution could work for other games as well. no luck. Two great examples are the greenlit games "no more room in hell" and "the fifth day". both of these titles are pretty low end in graphics, but they are unplayable due to this problem. the second game never crashes however it just continues to turn black and than it actually recovers only to go black again. So in essence the problem is very complex. I have tried altering settings in AMD catalyst manager with no luck. I than did a complete reinstalled of my system and installed all of the updates available. I also tried other drivers for my card. I thought perhaps the system is overheating but that was not the case at all. Any ideas at all. please, even crazy theories, im nearly certain it's a defective GPU.

Hi, is anyone else experiencing daily video accelerator crashing on T410 Windows 10?  I have two units and they both crash after resuming the display after auto screen turn off.  I have tried all the suggestions online from all over the web and nothing works.  I hope that Lenovo will do something about this.  Or, does anyone know how to stop this annoyance?  Many thanks.

A:T410 Windows 10 Intel Video Driver Crashing

Welcome Gigglez
1. Is your T410 comes with only Intel GPU or both Intel / NVIDIA Optimus?
2. Is your existing drivers installed automatically by Windows or is it downloaded and installed from Lenovo Support?3. You could download and install a newer version of Intel HD Drivers*. Download and install NVIDIA driver also if it comes with it.*As T410 is already more than 5 years old, Intel and Lenovo may not provide supports and newer drivers to match newer version of Windows.If this 3 steps does not resolve your problem, you may have to revert your T410 to Windows 7.

My monitor displays this image every now and then "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered
Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

For some reason it gets worse and worse. At a certain point it just freezes. I got this video card only a few months ago so I doubt that it's about to die. What can I do? It's already given me a few BSODs this morning. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Thanks for the help!

Alright, so I used to randomly get the whole 'Display driver has stopped working but has successfully recovered' message, but not too often. It always 'seemed' like it happened during a youtube video. Now, I have since upgraded to a 2 monitor setup, and the display driver crashing seems more frequent. Again, it seems to me as if it occurs during a youtube/flash video (I tend to have a -lot- of browser tabs open, a lot being youtube. Well I had a few display driver crashes and succesfully recovers (screen just goes black for a second then goes back to the desktop with that message), followed by a BSOD this time. The rest of my info is on my System Specs tab. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks! Note: I think during the BSOD it said something along the lines of atikmpag.

A:BSOD and display driver crashing

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

For the past week my HP Probook 6550b has been having some problems. At random times, usually around 5-10 minutes after boot up, the display driver crashes. The first few times it would crash but Windows recovered only for it to happen again a couple of minutes later. Now it just causes a BSOD crash and either Windows restarts or I have to kill the power.
Anyone have any idea what my problem might be?

For security and stability Windows defines memory areas as "executable" where programs can run, and "non-executable" where data is stored, but programs are not allowed to run.

Last night, video apparently stopped being rendered while I was playing. Rather than crashing, I still had audio from the game.. I could still move and hear my character moving.. but I had no video. All I could see was what was behind the game, ie: firefox, and another program. So I end-tasked the game to try and search for a possible cause and solution in firefox, only to discover that the three tabs I had open weren't being rendered either. They were just blank, white pages, and firefox had to be end-tasked. It continued to do this, and I was essentially unable to use firefox.

I tried running Minecraft, and had a blank, white window appear rather than the launcher login screen that normally appeared. I restarted, and everything was fine. Because I was using an older video driver, I updated to the latest version available.. and it didn't help. I rolled them back to a much older version, and that didn't help either. I'm currently using the original version I had installed, which I had no problems out of until this random crashing started.

Today, however, during a session of TF2, I actually had a BSOD. I didn't catch everything from the BSOD, but the event viewer reads:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000109 (... Read more

I've been having frequent "display driver AMD has stopped responding but has recovered" messages along with full computer crashes and bad artifacting in most programs I run. Full BSOD crashes are random, but drivers going unresponsive and artifacts happen more often in certain programs. Sometimes I go for a day or two without even a stutter but earlier today I didn't even last 20 minutes before my computer crashed and rebooted by itself. It doesn't matter what I do, playing Civ 5 in both 8.1 touch mode or normal DX10&11 mode on high settings (artifacting and bad driver crashes), or just leaving it alone (it crashed by itself with no programs running after about an hour) or going through photo viewer (bad artifacting after around an hour). I checked my temps and usages in speedfan, and I'm not even getting 60% cpu load, 70% memory used, or temps that are even close to overheating. I haven't put anything new in or messed with settings, so I don't think it's not a power problem. There was only one crash that I had where it actually prepared a dump before it shut itself down proper, the rest were complete hangs or instant shutdowns.

When it does fully crash, like when I was watching youtube, it hangs on whatever sound was playing for a few seconds and either scrambles the screen or gives two tone vertical lines like http://i57.tinypic.com/xqb6sg.jpg, then the screen goes black and the monitor doesn't pick anything up, and my speakers don't play any sound, even thou...

A:BSOD, driver crashing+recovering, and artifacts

You have a NETGEAR WG111v3 Wireless-G USB Adapter:

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

FYI - as your wifi drivers date from 2007 and 2009, I'd suspect that this is the primary cause of your problems (but other possibilities follow)

Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Start with these free hardware diagnostics. Pay particular attention to the video tests.
Be sure that you have updated to the latest video drivers.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.

NOTE: these symptoms were from the previous release of OverDrive. The new release uses the same driver name, but is dated from 4 November 2013.

Hello, Windows 7 Forums. I wish I could be making a first post on happy terms. Sigh. But in searching for possible solutions to my problem, I found this forum and have learned some pretty nifty things, so I'm hoping I might find at least a little help here.

I'm not a TOTAL technophile, so please bear with me. But. About a year ago, I purchased a brand spanking new Gateway computer. Intel core 2 Quad processor, 6 GB DDR3 Ram, 640 GB HD, Windows 7 (obviously), nVidia GeForce GT 220. That's off the top of my head. As soon as I get the chance I'll post a full report from CPU-Z, I've got my baby turned off at the moment and having a sleep.

If it helps at all to know, I'm not a hardcore PC gamer or anything. There's a couple games I have on the system (and I mean "a couple", my free harddrive space is like... in the several hundred gigs yet!) and they fall WELL beneath the system reqs. But that may be completely irrelevant.

SO. The first problem I had was many months ago, when I brought my baby home and got her set up, I did the whole driver/software thing, and when I got to the GeForce driver, I had some trouble. All of a sudden the screen was PACKED full of garbage, not just a few, but MILLIONS of cluttered pixels flashing all over the place, making everything completely unviewable.

I very quickly rolled back the driver to the next most recent version, and everything was fine. Months go by, no problems whatsoever. Fast forward to just this past weekend. I'm goo... Read more

A:Crashing/BSOD issues, probably driver related...

Well, I did a few good scans, swept a whole bunch of garbage out of the registry, even managed to get the dump files with no problem, with my display settings set to "Classic Windows". I thought, hmm, maybe that's all it needed was a bit of cleaning.

So, I change back to a more...appealing, modern Windows 7 look. I fire up a video player, because my TV's recently died and I'd love to catch a movie.

HANGS. AGAIN. No messages, no warning, no nothing. Just immediate hanging, and I have to pull to plug to shut the machine off. It proceeds to do the exact same thing. Twice in a row. On the START UP SCREEN.

Why. WHY. Augh. Here's the dump files and etc.

Hi All,

Im new to this forum so not sure if this is in the right topic.

I have an Acer Aspire AX3810 running windows 7 home premium 64bit. I have 7gb DDR3 Memory and an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.

A few weeks ago before upgrading windows and my memory I began getting BSOD errors about the graphics driver on boot up. This would occur every now and then and then boot up normally with no problems at all during running the system.

This problem seemed to occur out of the blue. I noticed that there was a new driver released so tried updating it, but still had the same problem. I upgraded windows and added 4gb more memory. This still has not assisted. the problem is now nearly every boot up, with the system going to BSOD, then re-booting itself then straight into windows and everything works fine, graphics card shows as working, driver shows as working and up to date.

Does anyone know why my driver could be crashing on and only on boot up. Its getting rather annoying now.

Kind Regards

Hello there!

On my freshly installed Windows 7 notebook I am still having random Starcraft 2 crashes (maybe once a week or two). As part of the attempt to figure out what is causing this I have run the Windows built-in Driver Verifier (Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable)

I am not even able to boot into Windows itself, after consecutive BSODs and accompanying reboots. After disabling Driver Verifier in safe mode I am able to attach the results extracted from the SF Diagnostic Tool.

Some other information that may be applicable to my situation.
- Windows Memory Diagnostic passes no problems.
- Windows is not tweaked in any way - msconfig, ccleaner, services, etc.
- CPU, GPU temps are normal/acceptable - under SC2 GPU is 71C, CPU 86C.
- However, the Intel HM65 chip is 90C under load, and 75C while surfing/watching video. There is no heatsink on this chip.
- Short tests by Seagate SeaTools all pass (have not run the long tests).
- Running Error Scan in HD Tune also didn't show any errors.
- According to SMART I do have End-to-End Errors (value is 86), from what I've read this may or may not mean anything. Could these errors register due to the HD not having optimal physical connection? I noticed overnight the computer was acting sluggish with low IO performance, which turned out to be a physical connection issue - just had the slide the HD back in a bit.

TIA for any help!

A:Computer BSOD - randomly crashing - DRIVER IRQL LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO

Duplicate thread http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...need-help.html

I was playing Dota 2 on my laptop when I saw several small pixelated artifacts moving on the screen. I decided to alt-tab to see if my eyes were playing tricks on me, and the screen went black and I couldn't do anything. The screen was slowly flashing for awhile until there was a popup saying "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered."

It continued to flash until I got a BSOD saying DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (igdkmd64.sys). I rebooted the computer only to have it do the same thing on the start screen with the artifacts still there until I got a BSOD again.

I'm now typing this in safe mode since I can't start up normally because of the constant crashing. Can anyone help me?

A:BSOD playing a game, display driver constantly crashing

Hi jadz45122 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: ffffe000c3c42010, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff8005b490d90, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 000000000000000d, Optional internal context dependent data.

So, according to the dump file, the 3rd argument is 0 which means the operation completed successfully yet the system crashed. Sounds strange right?
According to your description, if you are getting artifacts, that would be most likely a hardware problem.
Could you please perform the Furmark and check the temperatures?

I don't know where to even begin with this, but my laptop is almost unusable now. It started about a month ago with a few freezes each few days, mostly when watching videos online. It went on like that for about 3 weeks, but this last week has been awful.

It's freezing and/or blue screening over 2 dozen times a day. Sometimes it will just completely lock up and give me no choice but hit the power button to restart it. Whenever it does actually blue screen, I get the "A clock interrupt was not received on a second..." message. And it's not creating a mini-dump file for the crashes either. I've set it to do a kernal memory dump, then to do a small memory dump, but either one won't happen. After it blue screens, it just sits there saying:

"Collecting data for crash dump....
Initializing disk for crash dump...."

But the percentage numbers never pop up. It just sits there and I have manually turn the laptop off and back on again, with no crash dump file being created. I've let it sit there up to 15 minutes before with nothing happening. This why i'm not attaching a dump file log, since there isn't one to begin with.

I don't know if this is related, but during this time the display on the screen has been flickering quite a bit when I first turn it on. If I jiggle it around a little, I can normally get it to stop.

Also within the past week i've had a lot of mini-freezes, a black screen, and then it comes back with a message saying "Display driver NVIDIA... Read more

A:BSoD-Minidump not being created, Freezing, Display Driver Crashing

As an update for today, my laptop has froze 6 times in the last hour, only 3 of which has lead to an actual blue screen. It's still not creating a dump file. I even downloaded the file to add to the registry to create a small dump file, but it's still not doing it. It's like the computer freezes after going to the blue screen.

It also seems like it's only freezing when I use Chrome. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but that didn't help. I don't know if it could be something to do with the browser or not. I will try running memtest overnight tonight and see if that comes back with anything.

A:Crashing at random, BSOD Driver Power State Failure


All Driver Power State Failure errors.

They all blame the disk controller, and a driver usually seen in Firewire/USB BSODs.

Therefore your external drives (or more likely programs that access them) are at fault.

Number one on the list are the Norton remnants that are still being loaded on the system (probably from the "free trial" that comes preloaded on most OEM systems).

Remove these remnants of Norton:


Download the Norton Removal Tool (NRT); save to desktop. Boot into SAFEMODE - NO Networking. Tap F8 key during boot-up. Then go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the NRT icon and select Run as Administrator.

When complete - re-boot.

NRT - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

If that fails to stop the BSODs then get rid of AVG too


Download the AVG Removal Tool (ART) from here (make sure you get the appropriate version) -> save to desktop.

Boot into SAFEMODE - NO Networking. Then follow instructions to remove.

When complete - re-boot.

A:BSOD - video driver problem?

Hello pandasaurus and welcome to seven forums.

I don't see any dump files in the folder. Make sure the system is configured to create dumps.

How to get to Startup and Recovery:

Through Startup and Recovery
1. Open the Start Menu.A) Right click on the Computer button on the dark right side and click on Properties.

B) Go to step 3.

2. Open the Control Panel (All Items view) and click on the System icon.

3. In the left blue pane, click on the Advanced system settings link. (See screenshot below)
4. Close the System window. (See screenshot above)

I've been trying to resolve a BSOD at startup error.

Win 7 Ultimate on newly formatted HD.

1. have installed updated chipset and bios on MB.
2. Installed Win 7 and got BSOD (pointing to nvlddmkm.sys)
3. removed video driver and restarted with generic driver...system booted fine.
4. Let win 7 update, and got BSOD again, pointing to nvlddmkm.sys
5. again reverted to generic, and this time updated using the nvidia driver executable file on their website.
6. BSOD pointing to nvlddmkm.sys
7. verified that memory, MB, etc. was part of the approved set from ASUS.

My hardware:

ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution with anywhere from 2 to 6 gig, depending on when I tested it.

Core i7 920 cpu

Nvidia GTX 285 video card

1TB SATA HD in IDE mode. (Someone previosuly told me to try AHCI, which was a red herring)

Anyone have thoughts about what to try next? I'm using the 64-bit version of Win 7, but have the same issue when I have tried the 32-bit version.

Have also tried one rev back of nvidia drivers, with same results. I can run Win 7 in generic video driver mode, but it crashed if I try to use the manufacturer's driver for the video card.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Added minidump file, per the kind link below on how I should have asked for help.

A:BSOD at start (video driver....)


Probably 0x116 stop error, unrelated to driver version for video card.

If you're overclocking anything, set to default speeds for testing.

I keep getting a BSOD crash everytime i play a 3D game for more than an hour. First i get minor artifacting. I hope its not the video card. i have had my computer for just about a year and have been getting this problem for about 2 weeks. I rolled back 2 video drivers, and still get the error. i will attatch my minidump.

Well these were caused by two things. Your video driver which is current and may in fact be crashed by what I suspect is the actual cause. WNDA31vx.sys driver which is your wifi driver is both old and I suspect what is really crashing.

I would un-install both completely and install fresh copies of bot.

I would also run a system file check to repair and verify your system files
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

If you are overclocking stop

Hey guys,

So recently I've been getting quite a few BSODs from my 6 month old laptop.
For the research I've installed bluescreenview to see what is causing the crashes.
Here is the logs for the most recent crash I had (Which is about 20 mins earlier):

A:BSOD Probably related to video driver

Hi circle26.

Update the display driver to 332.21 WHQL.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results. For any further issue, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (SP2)
HP Pavilion tx1220us Tablet PC (2 years old now)
nVidia GeForce Go 6150

So this all started a year ago, after a video driver update from Windows Update. Since then, whenever Vista enters/exits a full-screen operation, it shifts out of Aero (resulting in a black screen for 5 seconds, most noticeable with calling UAC).
I've been trying to rollback or get a better update for the driver ever since (especially because Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says the driver needs to be updated), but have had no success.
A couple months ago I tried installing a video driver with a modded INF. As a result, problem still not fixed, and screen orientation functionality disabled.
Since then, trying to update the video driver (from HP, HP Recovery, and Windows Update) results in a BSOD half-way through (stop 0x7F,(0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0)). Then Windows fails to start, and executes Recovery Manager, which repairs and succeeds.
Obviously, if I didn't try to update the driver this wouldn't happen, but I'd like this to be somewhat resolved when 7 comes. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

do you happen to have some of the dump files from the BSOD's? they are usually located in c:\windows\minidump, can you zip them (*.dmp) and upload it to us using the attachment icon (its shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form

win 7 is already out and does have a better handle on drivers, especially in 32bit... Read more

When I open some programs (chrome, skype, steam, games in general) the screen goes black and either comes back saying my video driver crashed and recovered, or just restarts and windows says I had a bsod. I never actually get to see the bsod. It also can happen when I first load something that uses flash. (youtube video, twitch.tv stream) It can also happen when I call someone on skype.

It does not happen consistently, I can go a couple days without a bsod, I can get 4 in an hour, and it isn't the same program resulting in a crash each time. The last one was when I opened starcraft 2.

BlueScreenView points to dxgkrnl.sys+5d000

I've tried different versions of the graphics driver with no success. I made sure directx was up to date, no change. Driver verifier did result in a bsod. It stopped all together for about a week when I updated my bios, but now it's back in full swing.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD - Video Driver related?

Recommendations:Crashes were all 0x116 crashes. You have swapped drivers, but make sure to follow the instructions for cleanly swapping them laid out below.

BugCheck 0x116
These crashes are DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run a system file check to check Windows for corruption: Click Start Menu
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Right click Command Prompt
Click Run as administrator
sfc /scannow
and press Enter
Once it is complete, make note of the message. If it says Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and post back
If the message does not say Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations., restart your computer and do steps 1-6 again.
You may need to do steps 1-6 up to three times with a restart in between each run to resolve all corrupted files.
If you still have corrupted files after a fourth run, post back here with the following:Click Start Menu
Click Computer
Open your C: drive
Open Windows
Open Logs
Open CBS
Copy and paste CBS.log or CBS (it may not have the log extension) to a location you will remember.
Compress (zip) the CBS file and attach the .zip file to your next post.
