Blue Screen of Death

Hi All,

 

I'm having issues with my computer randomly crashing and rebooting itself (aka the Blue Screen of Death).

 

I have an HP EliteBook 8740w, i7 1.73GHz, 16GB RAM, with a Quadro FX 2800M graphics card running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and SolidWorks 2011. I've tried various graphics drivers to solve the problem (including the SW approved one), but the only thing which stabilises the system is to run it under the Windows Classic theme.

 

I can't say for sure, but the problems seemed to start after I installed SP4... but this may be purely a coincidence.

 

I'm wondering if anybody else out there has the same system and is experiencing similar problems.

 

Cheers,

 

Bruce.
