Sorry, it's high pollen here and my eyes are having problems (I've got some pretty severe vision problems)
The BIOS date is 08/04/2014
The date on the website is not necessarily the date of the version.
I'm uncertain of what they mean by Rev A - but it won't hurt to try to update it - if it's the same version the program will tell you so.
In general, BIOS updates for W7 and earlier aren't as critical as updates for the BIOS/UEFI in W8 and later OS's. W8 and later OS's are designed to be more tightly tied into the BIOS/UEFI than previous versions - that's one reason why Microsoft forced OEM's to sell W8 and later systems with UEFI.
Don't delete drivers - it can render your system unbootable.
I have a procedure to make this a bit safer - but I don't think that you need it just yet.
We'll keep an eye on the Glance product to see if it keeps appearing.
FYI - it's possible that some other company is using the Glance drivers - so you wouldn't notice that it was installed.
The script that generates the red color doesn't translate well with the forum software here (it's slightly different BBCode than other forums use).
I'm hoping that the developer changes the code in his next release, but haven't heard from him recently.
In this case, you'll see the [COLOR=RED] tag before the drivers that were highlighted
The only instance in your dump file was the Glance driver
Don't worry about it being a bit more technological than you expected - that's why we're here.
If anything confuses you, feel free to ask about it (although I may end up talking your ear off! :0)
In general BSOD troubleshooting involves fixing some things, then waiting for more BSOD's, then fixing some more, etc
While fixing we're also keeping our eyes open for patterns that emerge.
In most cases we fix a BSOD issue within 2 pages of posts. For the more complicated BSOD scenarios it can take 4 or 5 pages.
There's only 3 things that can cause BSOD's (actually 2, but I broke it into 3 because of the frequency)
- 3rd party drivers (over 90% of BSOD's are due to this)
- hardware (less than 10% of BSOD's are due to this)
- Windows problems (less than 1% of BSOD's are due to this - as long as Windows Updates are fully up to date).
Many BSOD's are very simple - one thing causes them and when we fix it, the BSOD's stop
Other BSOD's are more complicated - and are caused by several things.
In those cases it may take longer to fix the BSOD's - and even after they're stoppd, there may be other errors that need fixing before the system is fully stabilized (such as black screen errors, or crashing applications).
Should the system continue to BSOD, zip up the contents of C:\Windows\Minidump and upload it with your next post.
If you have trouble zipping it, copy it to your Desktop and zip it up there.
