    BSOD after updating to windows 8 from windows 7 or not sur


    My MSICX61 laptop started getting BSOD after I updated it from windows 7 to windows 8.
    I think it started when I also started playing game on my laptop. games like bioshock/2k and lol.
    I am not really sure if the reason for the BSOD is the update or the games that I played..
    I updated the drivers of my graphics card regularly using nvidia geforce experience but I still get BSODs.

    Thanks for the help in advance! I hope you guys can help me fix this issue that's been bothering me. This laptop haven't been with me for a year and it's already faulty..

    thank you for the quick response. I uninstalled avast! , set windows firewall and defender to automatic.

    however about the intel storage driver update.. I downloaded a file from intel.com and extracted it but the folder it came with didn''t have any exe file.. so that's it? Attachment 36503

    I've successfully updated my Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 135 from Intel.com.

    there is also a problem with the audio codec driver update..

    Disregard Realtek HD Audio codec message and install.

    At Intel.com you can download the version with .exe installer, or use Device Manager for what you have now.

    You're welcome.

    iaStor iaStor.sys Tue Nov 29 22:39:19 2011 (4ED5A567) still the same.

    Uninstall McAfee Security Scan plus and Driver Detective.

    I would also update bios to newest, just because.

    About this:

    "I updated the drivers of my graphics card regularly using nvidia geforce experience but I still get BSODs."

    You should uninstall all video driver software for Intel and NVIDIA. You have switchable graphics and you can't really play with drivers like that.

    Install the latest graphics package for your laptop model, from it's maker, after. The Intel and NVIDIA drivers must work together as part of that package.
