    Weird BSOD on Windows. Have no idea what is causing it


    Hello!
    I bought a new Alienware 17 a few weeks ago and i'm having unexpected crashes.
    I've tried updating the BIOS, the drivers (Storage, etc). Uninstalling some applications, etc. I tried to see whats wrong by googling but even trying what they state still causing a bluescreen (or two!) daily.
    I've run a test on the RAM, but it seems to come up clean.
    Might be my Antivirus (Avira?)
    So the last two bluescreens happened like this:

    I was playing Garrys mod, on skype, screen froze. Bam, bluescreen.
    Next, was opening adobe after effects, on skype. And it froze, said it wasn't responding and maybe 5 seconds later, bluescreen.

    Although, not all happened during skype. Some even while i was asleep (4am)

    I have around 12 crash dumps. They all seem to be mostly by the same two/three system processes.

    Anyways, thank you for all the help i receive. Attachment 70185

    If you have any Dell program, please remove it temporary for the time of troubleshooting
    When did you check for the last time for driver updates?
    The most recent dump seems to be caused by the Nvidia display drivers and when I check for drivers I see a few driver updates that have been released a few weeks ago.
    My recommendation is to check all drivers Dell provides for updates.

    Hey Axe.
    I got another bluescreen last night. ( i attached the new file). Attachment 70397
    I've been updating my display driver (NVDIA) to the most recent one. I'll try update it again and see if that fixes the issue.
    Thank you, by the way, for reading the dump file. I've been looking aimlessly for some form of direction in what the problem might be.
    The strange thing is it's constantly different bluescreens. Does that not mean it might be a hardware issue?
    After the bluescreen my CPU makes some really weird cpu noises. It sounds like a plane or something.. Is this normal after a bluescreen?

    Edit: Driver is the most recent update. Others don't seem to have issues with the driver update. What about the other bluescreens?

    Depends on what bluescreen it is, there are some who experience different bluesceens but these bluescreens are memory related what would mean driver issues usually.

    There is a reason why I suggested to check all drivers, there are more drivers which require updating.
