Got to admit, I'm a little stumped. This one is pointing at your Nvidia display driver software

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.[/B][/U][/COLOR]  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff8800f469ec0, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff880031f6858, Exception Record Address
Arg4: fffff880031f60b0, Context Record Address

I suppose it could be a corrupt driver and normally I would suggest getting the latest driver available (download again), from Nvidia.
And then use DriverSweeper in safe mode (very carefully) to remove it then perform a clean install just to be sure.
I did notice that your BIOS looks like it's dated.... 01/22/2008. I believe there is a more current version released 8/12/2011. Take a look here EVGA Download Center you may want to consider an update.

Thanks, at this point I'll try anything. :) I'm going to reinstall my nvidia and update my bios. Latest's I found was in '09 so you may have mistyped the 2011? P33.


Noob Whisperer
Actually I was reading this page
EVGA Download Center
Driver Version: P33

Release Date: 8/12/2011
Driver File: Download
While you're awaiting another Blue Screen (not), would you download the free versions, install and update both
Once installed and updated, reboot into safemode and run a full scan using both simultaneously. ( just out of curiosity)
Good luck and keep us posted

Ha, that's weird. It's the same one I downloaded. On the search it's 09 but when you click on it it's '11. My pc info says 09 tho. :) I'll run those scans in a bit butttttt....after updating, my pc freezes on safe mode. On cnp something. I'm trying to fix that so I can uninstall nvidia display drivers in safe mode. Googling. XD

Actually went to safe mode now after doing a check disk and fix. The malware scans didn't bring nothing up besides tracking cookies and I reinstalled nvidia. ^_^ Here's hoping it's fixed...
