Try installing the latest chipset drivers and graphics drivers from Intel web site:

The faulting module igxpdv32 belongs either to the graphics card or the on board video card.

OK, I will check that out.  Thank you for helping me.  What bothers me is I don't know how to decipher a minidump, and that I have to depend on others to help me.  It would be great to figure it out for myself.  I understand that it takes a good deal of experience, but if you could tell me what caught your eye, it would be a start.  Thank you again.

Hi Scott-

This one is easy to the point of trivial. The stack is a list of instructions the current thread is currently processing in reverse order. Each time one piece of code calls another piece of code (generically speaking), that code gets "pushed" onto the top of the stack. The topmost entry on the stack is the code that last executed when the machine crashed. In your case we don't have what are called symbols (they make this alot more legible), so the debugger gives us the module (e.g. dll/driver/exe/etc) and the offset (how far in) the executing code is at.

This is not a rule of thumb by any means but for what you have here it works. If you look at the top of the file you'll see all the commands that whatever generated this ran. !analyze -v in particular is a great starting point.


Thanks,
