  1. Im not new to 7 but i am new to its bsods.. I woke up to it (A Bsod). Had no file name or what had happened... Read up the minidump... Whats going on here?
    More info:
    ntkrnlmp.exe ???
    VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT (... Not even...)
    UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (What's this?)
    EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT (Sounds bad just reading it)

    Also: Im running windows 7 and what is this?! VISTA?! Really? How the hell? I have Ubuntu on dual boot but not vista...
    Could overheat cause this?
    It was heating up like a beast last night while playing some games... (Maybe I should wait till I get home if that's the case)
    Hopefully it over heated. I can't afford getting it fixed AGAIN.

    I think I figured it out. It hasn't happened again. Im afraid to try and force it to BSOD to test it...

    What did you do to resolve your issue?

    Restarted and put a fan under the computer. Im still unsure if it was an overheat issue. Other sites say its a hardware issue... Im just thinking something got too hot... I accidentally left it on a blanket last night... I fell asleep in front of it.

    Overheating will certainly cause these issues. If a fan has stopped any more crashes then I would say heat was the problem.
