  1. Hi my computer has been randomly going to BSOD and showing me an error code...stop 0x000000D1 then like 3 more in () after the this one. Can anyone tell me what this is and, hopefully, how to fix it. This usually happens when I'm playing World of Warcraft and something during Dragon Age.

    I'm running windows 7 64bit, custom built pc.

    Thanks I appreciate the help!

    0xD1 errors are usually caused by faulty drivers. I suggest doing the following...

    1. Download Driver Sweeper free version to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay; just leave all other drivers alone.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.


    * By the way, I really like Dragon Age. :D
