Blue Screen error : device driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently bought the game Dead Space 3. was playing fine until the Blue Screen Error came up.... cant really remember everything but its something about "The system is shut down abruptly due to device drivers which is trying to corrupt the system" and also something about Kernels .... (sorry for my bad memory) ....

    This problem had occurred roughly 3/4 times after initial installation then after that there's no more such error UNTIL recently I installed another game (DmC)...... played Dead Space 3 again after installing DmC and this Blue Screen Error appeared once again. (sorry if its a little confusing)

    PC specs:

    Windows 7 64-bit

    Intel Core i5-3210M

    10GB DDR3 RAM

    Nvidia GeForce GT630M (using latest drivers) 

    anyway, here's the full details of the error:

  • We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
    You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.
    If you are overclocking stop.  (chances are if you dont know if you are, you are not)
    To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

    The procedure:

    * Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
    * Zip up the copy.
    * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
     *Please upload them to a file sharing service like Skydrive or"Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
    Link for how to  upload below.

    To ensure minidumps are enabled:

    * Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.

    * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
    * OK your way out.
    * Reboot if changes have been made.

    This one crash was Related to nvlddmkm.sys nVidia Display Driver.  I would re-install newest driver available.

    You are also running two malware apps simultaneously (McAfee, and Kaspersky).  Never a good idea.  I would remove them both and replace with MSE

    McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's. 

    I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

  • Thanks for the advice, will try to re-install my graphics driver. Regarding the McAfee, I've tried uninstalling some time ago but the program just doesn't seem to appear under Programs and Features. So any idea how can I get rid of it once and for all ? I know this seems a little off topic but thanks anyway. 

    Edit: Sorry, didnt check your link before commenting. Thanks again
