    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    4 of your minidumps crash at nv4_disp.dll. This is part of your Nvidia graphics card drivers. they have a bugcheck of EA.

    0x000000EA: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

    A device driver problem has caused the system to pause indefinitely (hang). Typically, this is caused by a display driver waiting for the video hardware to enter an idle state. This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter, or a faulty video driver.

    As you can see from the above, your problem is either the graphics card drivers, or a problem with the card itself.

    Try updating the drivers and see if that improves the situation. If not, it may be your cards ram is fried.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
