PC resets (minidump files attach.)

  1. Previously, I had the same problem (PC resets) but the culprit was the video card and I've changed it.

    Now WHAT??

    Is there someone kind enough to take a look at the minidump files?

    The first and last minidumps are caused by this file bdfsdrv.sys
    BDFSDRV.SYS is a part of BitDefender Internet Security.

    All of the other minidumps are caused by nv4_disp.dll which is part of your video card drivers.
    I would uninstall both, and reinstall the drivers and your video card.

    thanks fastco for your help.

    I think that the minidump files which are caused by nv4_disp.dll are old because the new video card is ATI and not nVIDIA. So the problem was caused by BitDefender.

    Ellulbrian,if you switched to a different card brand, then uninstall all display drivers, then use Driver Cleaner to remove all traces of them, and then reinstall the drivers for the ATI card. Fastco said your nvidia drivers also caused crashes, so it is possible that the ATI and Nvidia drivers are conflicting.

    Uninstall your old video card drivers and make sure you have all the new drivers for your new card.
