Hi all,

I have an NEC E3100 notebook which works perfectly in every way except when I access videos on line. It then freezes & I get a BSOD. I've taken photos and they can be seen here: http://picasaweb.google.com/dudley.geoff/N...ueScreenOfDeath

I ran Memtest for 12 hours thinking it was a memory problem but there were no errors. I can play DVD's ok. The annoying thing is that the BSOD is random. Sometimes I can access videos ok, sometimes not. The same thing happens when I run the notebook off battery or mains.

My wife has the previous model, an NEC A2100 and has no problems at all.

Any ideas are welcome. --gwd

Most likely cause is (IMO) corrupt video drivers. Try uninstalling them, then installing a freshly downloaded copy from the NEC website:;model_id=215

Ensure that you download the correct one for your system (945 vs 915). You can probably locate the information for this in Device Manager (Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the + sign next to display adapter and this should show you the model of your video adapter.
