    BSOD searching for new hardware in Device Manager


    Hi all,

    Man man, what is wrong with my laptop?
    In device manager every hardware is shown correctly without a sign or error
    that there is something missing.

    But when i click on my laptop name and search for changed hardware. BAM i got a BSOD.

    Here are the logs!

    Thank you

    All your BSODs were caused by nvlddmkm.sys which is a driver for your Video from Nvidia. I've noticed the driver date is 02/10/2013 which is pretty recent but I would suggest to re-install the Video driver.
