I just got a bsod, running vista x64. It appears to have been my video card, a geforce 8800gt, updated drivers already, wasn't running hot. Here is the error report:

might want to go in in safe mode and remove service pack one, its a little bit of a long shot, but ive heard it not being compatible with some games that work fine pre service pack one, and considering you have a 8800 im assuming you're gaming what would really support this was did it BSOD while playing a game? worst case scenario it isnt it, you uninstall it, and have to waste an hour to reinstall it in any regards a little more information would be handy, like does it BSOD on startup? or when playing a game? when the computer gets hot? too much of a load on the PSU? that would help in a diagnosis otherwise you might want to contact your card manufacturer, you might have a faulty card

in addition to Comp wiz's post, you may want to try and roll back your drivers to the previous version. New drivers, not always the best answer.

Sorry, I forgot to mention it happened randomly while I was surfing or something like that. I have not had one since and I haven't had one while gaming.

If you were gaming, I would start with checking the temperatures at time.

hmm.. and you comment my reading skills...

[quote=error41;4553452] I haven't had one while gaming.

anyway, if its at random times, it might be a heat issue and it might not be as random as you think did you have your computer on for a long time the last time you BSODed? would it be possible you had another video card you could try it with to see if thats generating too much heat? Also, how much time did you allow between blue screens? like did it blue screen after an hour, then you restarted and it blue screened again after 5 minutes? because that would most probably be heat and i know you said you havent had one in a little while, but if you were getting them at least even semi-regularly you might want to be a little worried, because BSODs should not be a common occurance

Actually rookie, error41 and i have already discussed it. So if that comment was a dig, now you may want to consider your personal remarks at the moderators to come as a forewarning. Watch it. :D Have a nice day.

Rookie. :rofl:

Update, so I didn't get any other bsod's per say, but I was playing UT3 for about two hours and suddenly, the screen froze, there were also these small, horizontal lines of different colors scattered around the screen if that makes any sense. Than the monitor lost its signal, and I restarted. Would that just be an overheating issue because it was the inner ring of hell in my room at the time.
