Igdpmd64.sys - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Mini Dumps attached - Can someone tell me what is causing this.

Check if update KB2670838 is installed - or might be causing that in some cases.
Igdpmd64.sys seems to be an Intel graphics driver. Can you update it?

I remove it and it comes back automatically.
Does that be it does not uninstall, or it is re-installing?

it seems to be reinstalling
That fast? Go into  Windows Update, set it to not install automatically, and then uninstall again.

I set it to not install updates automatically.... Uninstalled KB2670838 ... uninstalling this KB also uninstalls I.E and downgrades it to I.E 8.  after reboot KB2670838 is not longer there but I need I.E 10 or higher.. I install I.E 10 and the KB in question returns and so does the BSOD
That patch is required for IE10 and silently installed with it. You can try IE 11 ;-). If you cannot, try if up- or downgrading the video driver helps, as suggested by stefünfan.

@Qlemo:  Uninstalled KB again,  Rebooted,  Installed I.E 11 and KB still gets installed.

@nobus:  AMD Radeon HD and Intel HD graphics is showing under device manager as display adapters.
i'm curious to see the result here, since i just happen to have an HP laptop with the same problem - suggesting the same KB to uninstall

Looks like uninstalling the entire ATI suite of drivers and apps fixed the problem. No BSOD even with KB2670838 still installed.  This Dell laptop has a Intel graphics card yet dell drivers website was detecting ATI card.

Going to leave this open until monday afternoon.. Just in case :-)
Do you have an additional GPU?
Avatar of Goraps

ASKER

Not that I am aware of... How can I tell?
What is your exact Vostro model? But the 3000's should have only Intel integrated GPU.
Avatar of Goraps

ASKER

Vostro 3450
Okay, this one was sold with an additional AMD Radeon HD 6630M. Thus you'll get the ATI drivers.

I would look at the BIOS setup, maybe there's a option disable either one of your GPU's.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

The computer in question has not blue screened since and I cannot get another dump in order to continue with this question.
i posted the solution - update video driver - so why delete it?
of course it does not blue screen anymore now..it's fixed
