Windows 7 BSOD 3B

Hello Everyone,

Recently I crashed from a BSOD 3B and I've been trying to find the cause, maybe you guys can help me out.

Here is the memory dump:

Best Regards,

Danny

Hi

3b is usually a graphic's driver (display adapter/video driver), other possibilities include but are not limited to antivirus/antispyware/security programs and even memory (mapping).
 
BCCode: 3b    0x0000003b
 
Cause: This error has been linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics driver’s crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code.

Try update ur graphic's card driver

Hope it helps

Unfortunately I already have the latest driver for my video card! (NVIDIA 560 TI 2GB)

If someone can have a look at that memory dump, I'd greatly appreciate it.

How is your monitor connected? (i.e. DVI-D, DisplayPort, etc.)  Just as a shot in the dark, you may want to try running in a slightly lower resolution and see if it still blue screens.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

BugCheck 3B Probably caused by nvlddmkm.sys.txt

If you have the latest drivers roll them back. If there are still issues the drivers may need a clean install in order to function properly.  This can be done by running the latest driver package and choosing "Custom installation" and check the box labeled "Perform Clean Install" which will remove previous drivers and perform a clean install.

Make sure you only install Nvidia drivers you need

nobusCommented:
that points to
IMAGE_NAME:  nvlddmkm.sys which is part of the Nvidia driver

did you update the driver  - a s asked?
if you did, try to uninstall it completely, and install an older driver to test

btw - you can hook the minidmps here also -attach as file

dzambranoAuthor Commented:
Yes, the driver is at its latest. I will try using an older driver.

Check for stability and stress test with this tool. Run Benchmark user settings.

Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\  (might be easier using a command prompt).  See if it has a massive amount of files.  There is a rootkit virus that produces thousands and thousands of files here that hang up a lot of the anti-virus programs.  Just fixed one presenting with BSOD among other issues and that was the key to being able to start getting rid of it.  Once you get remove the huge amount of useless files, the programs can do their thing.  

The command from this link helped me (using a different path):

It appears the overclock I had previously set the card to several weeks ago never reset back to default settings. I've since reset the OC and everything appears more stable, no crashes as of yet. Hopefully this was the culprit.

nobusCommented:
ha- you never gave us that info .. difficult to find that then..
but yes, that seems like a very plausible cause

Rob MinersCommented:
Yep, that'll do it. :)

Sorry for the trouble, could have sworn I reverted the OC!
