Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone could help me with this problem. Forgive me if there is another topic posted about this as i have been unable to search back for the past month to check.

I am receiving a BSOD error on logoff. I have been so far unable to catch exactly the culprit of it as it flicks to quick for me to see. It usually only happens after a user clicks log off to return to the welcome screen. It doesn't do it if you "Switch user" or restart the machine. Only on logoff.

My machine specs are as follows.
Dell m/board with pentium 4 2.8ghz processor. 1.5ghz of ram (512 + 512) + (256 + 256) running in dual channel, all DDR 333 sticks. All have been memtested. 120gb SATA hdd, 120gb IDE hdd, LG DVD multi and LG CD/RW drives.
I repair computers for a living and have so far tried everything i could think of. I have run multiple virus and spyware scans, both remote and local (drive removed). I have individually tested each stick of ram, and chkdsk /r'ed all drives. All fine, have also run spinrite on hdd's.

Does anyone have any ideas on what may resolve the problem, i am at wits end trying to fix this, and i heavily rely on this computer for my work, and can't afford the time or parts to rebuild my second machine.

Check your Event Viewer for a record of the BSOD. It's been my experience that most BSOD's are related to driver issues. In this case, I'd suspect your video drivers - so updating them would be a good choice.

ForceWare Release 95
Version: 96.85
Release Date: October 17, 2006
WHQL Driver

Looks like their still using their original driver, which i don't think is squeezing as much out of the card as it possibly could. The site has said for the past few months that they will be releasing new drivers for the FX series soon, but soon has stretched out to about 3 - 4 months now.

edit: im running 32 bit vista sorry.

How to locate BSOD messages: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

The best driver for your video card is (IMO) those WHQL certified drivers that nVidia releases - they are the most stable and are (FWIW) required when troubleshooting. Beyond that, you can try other drivers - but the stability won't be as good as the nVidia one's. But you may find that you prefer the other drivers because of their performance - your choice :huh:
