    BSOD - IRQL only when Nvidia driver is turned on


    I bought a computer in December from powernotebooks, but its a sager. I get random blue screens mostly when gaming but sometimes even when on desktop or surfing the web. When the Nvidia card is turned off, and the onboard one is only running, the computer will never crash, when I turn the NVidia on the crashes are almost immediate.
    Stats:
    I7 @ 2.4
    12 Gig ram
    Nvidia GTX 770m / Intel Hd Graphics 4600

    Here is the latest dump:

    Hey there,

    Grab all tool hasn't been used, so working with very limited info here.

    Update Realtek card reader driver:

    RtsBaStor RtsBaStor.sys Mon Dec 24 02:25:54 2012 (50D80382)

    Update bios to latest from maker's site, then set bios to Optimized Defaults.

    If issues persist, uninstall NVIDIA video driver and install the driver from the laptop maker's site.

    If they mismatched RAM modules, then that right there is your issue.

    Yeah I apologize, is there anything else you need from me info wise or want me to post any other specs? I have talked to Nvidia on the phone and did some trouble shooting, ultimately they said it wasn't their problem as they aren't the manufacturer of the card, sager is. Sager told me I had to send it in to them to take a look so I was seeing if anyone here had an idea before I went through all that trouble. I also might even just send it back to where I got it and get a refund before I send it to sager to take apart and try to fix since it is brand new.

    No, nothing else for now. Just check those RAM modules too, with CPU-Z. If they are all not exactly the same (12 GB is an odd number for RAM) then making them all so by removing whatever physically, will fix it.

    Also, I updated realtek driver, I don't see a bios driver anywhere for my computer.

    I guess I'm an idiot, every time I try to install that, It asks me if I want to install the 8 malware apps that come with it, if I decline it says cpu z has been interrupted... lol

    It doesn't have any malware. There is even a no installation file available. Just download, click it and it runs.

    Even the installation file itself doesn't try to install anything but CPU-Z itself.
