First off, I hope this is not considered a double post. I have been all over this website to find out what is considered a double post and find nothing regarding that. Nor anything regarding paid subscriptions and what they are.

I finally had it with the application crashes with Adobe Premiere Elements and decided to remove it from my system. I then downloaded Sony Vegas 30 day trial. I also downloaded the lastest video driver from Nvidia for the GeForce 9500GT card. I used Vegas for about 4 hours last night and no problems. This morning I was looking at my email from MicroS Outlook and then looking on the internet and BSOD.

I ran a minidump and the following is what I came up with. It sounds though either the new downloaded Vegas software or the driver is locking up my computer. Am I right on this? How do I fix it? I tried to restore at earlier restore points before the BSOD and my system can not complete the system restore for some reason.

Here is the minidump.

Stolen answer from somewhere, Yahoo I think:

"That's a Microsoft DX bsod and usually caused by the vid card and DX conflicts. You do have DX 10 installed I hope.

Overclocking will cause DX bsod's. Are you oc'ing the vid card?

Uninstall direct X and reinstall it.

Latest version of the nvidia drivers installed?

Vista Ultimate would like 3gig RAM much better in the 32bit and 4gig in the 64bit version.....

Good luck."

Also I saw on another site when I googled dxgkrnl.sys that one person found the problem was fixed by replacing his RAM. I would try the DX fix first.................

I have just downloaded the latest Nvidia driver from July 2009. I have 4 Gig Ram and now I'm lost on your comment about overclocking.

I don't know anything about clocking and have read a little but am very confused. I spoke to someone else who told me not to goof around with those settings.

Also, how would I find out if I have DX10 installed?

I let Vista 32bit update on a regular basis. So if it's something from Microsoft I would (know I shouldn't) assume that I do have the latest and greatest.

I can tell you that since I removed Premiere Elements and switched to Sony Vegas, it (knock on wood) has not crashed again. But yesterdays crash was when I was just looking for something on the net and only had Outlook opened.

Open the Run box and type dxdiag and click OK
If it asks you if you want to check for signed drivers, let it check
Click on the System tab and at the bottom it should tell you which version you have
