Hey all,

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop and I recently went to the Dell website to update my drivers, since I hadn't ever done this. I updated my video driver, network driver, etc. And everything worked fine. Then, though, there was an update for the BIOS listed under the same section, so I decided to do that too since I was updating everything else. Well, everything seemed fine, the update manager closed all programs and then shut off the computer and did the update, but the next time it started up I got this error:

STOP 0x000000D6
Driver attempting to access memory beyond the end of allocation

Everything still works fine when I boot into safe mode, or even safe mode with networking (I'm on it right now), but Windows won't start normally without getting this error. Should I just go back to the old BIOS version? If so, how can I do this? Otherwise, anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

From what I am finding you possibly have corrupted video drivers. I would recommend you go to the Device manager and uninstall your video drivers. Reboot your computer and install them.

Was there a filename mentioned in the text of the BSOD? If you'd like, you can analyze the output of the memory dump using some free tools and post the results here. First, search your hard drive for files ending in .dmp and find the most recent one. Then, visit this link for instructions on how to analyze the dump file and then copy/paste the results to your next post. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74712/how-to-find-bsod-error-messages/

Hey, thanks for the help. I tried uninstalling my video drivers and reinstalling them and that seemed to do the trick. Thanks a lot!
