I have a Windows XP SP3 restarting every seven days. In c:\windows\minidump from August 2013 to May 2015 I have minidumps files every seven days, for example:


Is this common? The reason of the BSOD is igxpmp32.sys driver and the proccess is iexplorer.exe. The strange thing is that BSOD is periodic, every 7 days.

Best Regards and thanks in advance

What is the stop code you are seeing?


Would you mind uploading some of the minidumps?

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
