Recurring 0x00000016 blue screen error

I recently had to replace the hard drive in a laptop. I cloned the old drive over to the new one, but now my user keeps getting a blue screen error. I already tried completely removing and re installing the video drivers but that had no effect. I also ran a chkdsk to rule out any data corruption but the errors continue.

I can't seem to reproduce this error. I have tried running video bench marks and they run fine without any issue. I have attached the latest minidump.

it points to the video card
maybe the clone contained the error )-  so you copied the problem over
try running sfc, or a repair :

or just do a fresh install, or factory reset - AFTER a backup

Well I fail to see how start up repair would do anything. The system boots just fine. I can a SFC scan last night but it came back clean. I also ran an offline virus scan which also came back clean. I'm really hoping to avoid a reload if at all possible.

>>  I can a SFC scan last night but it came back clean  <<   did you check the sfc log?  it does not report problems..

may i ask why the disk was replaced?  if it went bad during power outage, or a lightening storm - the motherboard may have taken a blow too

I ran SFC though DaRT

Everything is on a surge protecter. I ended up just resetting the machine back to factory default. I'm not sure yet it that resolved the issue or not. I suppose if it did not, then the problem is hardware related and there is probably not much I can do.

Ended up just doing a factory reset and it seems to have resolved the issue. I hated having to do that, but I was spending to much time on it.
