BSOD - Anyone good with minidumps?

  1. Hi. I'm new here, and I have a problem with my computer. BSOD.
    Helluva way to introduce myself!

    Basic and brief introduction of recent history and current problem:

    I recently upgraded the following hardware:
    Motherboard: MSI K8N Diamond
    Video Card: XFX GeForce 7800 GTX (UDD7)

    I eventually found out that my PSU was insufficient in more than one way. It had only 20 pins, and the motherboard had 24 pins. The PSU was only 360w.
    I experienced that the PSU would shut itself down under heavy load..

    So I upgraded again. New PSU:
    Thermaltake Purepower 680w, 24 pins..

    I also got a new CPU-cooler:
    VapoChill Micro Ultra Low Noise

    After installing the new PSU, the computer no longer shuts itself down. Since the power was sufficient. However, I sometimes get a BSOD.. but not immediately. These BSODs are very rare. One per day so far. They only occur after every basic software driver is installed.

    Event Viewer logs:

    2nd of October 2005
    Event ID 1001
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x100000d1 (0xcc773317, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0xb02f78d4). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini100205-01.dmp.

    3rd of October 2005
    Event ID 1001
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x8790d208, 0x8790d2a8, 0x0a140004). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini100305-01.dmp.

    The minidumps can be found here:

    More info:

    As I observe the event viewer, every time the savedump happens.. I also see something happening under "Application" at almost the same timestamp:

    2nd October:
    System: EventID 1001 = Savedump 00:54:09
    Application: EventID 1800 = SecurityCenter 00:54:19
    Application: EventID 0 = ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM) 00:54:19

    3rd October:
    System: EventID 1001 = Savedump 20:29:21
    Application: EventID 1800 = SecurityCenter 20:29:31
    Application: EventID 0 = ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM) 20:29:30

    It could just be me, but these seemed connected somehow.
    I have uninstalled Nvidia Forceware Firewall.. I heard it was... problematic
    So far so good, but it's too early to tell. I only get something like 1 BSOD per day anyway..

    The culprit is nVidia Firewall. De-install nVidia Firewall and install other firewall.

    BugCheck 19, {20, 8790d208, 8790d2a8, a140004}
    Probably caused by : NVTcp.sys ( NVTcp+1d9f )

    I did HOPE someone as astute as yourself would comment, but I didn't expect it. I'm honored to have your help. And you are a great person who helps people without asking for anything in return. The least we can give you is the recognition you deserve, as a great tech support expert, and a very nice guy. :)

    Thanks so much. It just confirms my suspicions.. I already did uninstall it..
    and so far soo good! :D
