Windows Vista BSOD assistance needed

  1. Hi everyone!

    I was just curious as to why my computer has been BSOD'ing recently. It occurs randomly. While I'm playing a game (Unreal tournament 3, Bioshock, etc...) as well, what I found most weird was that I was just surfing the internet and it BSOD'ed again.

    Would any of you kind folks be able to assist?

    The Error copy is:
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6001.
    Locale ID: 4105

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: a
    BCP2: 00000002
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 81E94354
    OS Version: 6_0_6001
    Service Pack: 1_0
    Product: 768_1

    Files that help describe the problem:

    ... and I believe you will also need the latest minidumps which I have attached.

    Thanks for the help!

    If it helps, I also ran 2 online scans (TrendMicro's and F-Secure's) which didn't find any viruses.

    Have you checked the system temperature? Sounds like you have overheating problems.

    According to HWMonitor and CPUZ max temp of all 4 cores during gaming is 68, 66, 65, 63 degrees celcius; max temp on the vider card (geforce 9800 GTX) is 67... is that still too hot?

    Both crashes are caused by CX88Vid.SYS. This looks to be a video capture driver, maybe by Conexant Systems, Inc? You'll need to find out what it belongs to and then look for an update.

    Probably caused by : CX88Vid.SYS ( CX88Vid+1107d )

    OH MY GOD!!! Thank you!!! Uninstalled and tested and no longer crashing!!!

    When I built my new computer, I tried moving my MSI TV @nywhere tuner. After multiple tries of installing, it just wouldn't work. For the life of me, I don't know why I never took out the hardware and removed the drivers! Hahah! BAD MARK!!! :p Anyways, thatnk you guys for your posts and thank you peter for taking the time to check out my dump. (Hehehe... that sounds funny ;)

    Take care guys...
