    Opened the dump file and it says probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe (nt+8baf2)
    I attached my dump file.

    F.Y.I. the mods will most likely move this to the BSOD forum.

    Your error code is 0xA and these are caused either by hardware or drivers attempting to address a higher IRQ Level than they are designed for resulting in system crashes.

    Unfortunately it only cited a Windows OS driver and OS drivers are usually too general to be of any help in diagnosing a problem. They function more so as saying there is a problem rather directing to what is causing the problem.

    1. What were you doing when this problem occurred?

    2. Did you add any hardware?

    3. Did you install any new software or update your software?

    4. What security software are you running?

    If you have anymore recent minidump files that you can attach please do so.

    While waiting 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 and remove ONLY 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.
