    Hi,

    Could you please run Display Driver Uninstaller from this **LINK**? Once those are uninstalled, see if the BSOD's are still continuing or not. If the BSOD's continue then the problem must be something else as the dump file provided by you is still pointing to the "nvlddmkm.sys" which is your NVIDIA Graphics Driver.

    Disable Dell Airplane Mode Switch and remove Cyberlink software so as to make sure that they are not behind this.

    Keep me updated.

    Is there any way to just disable the Cyberlink software, because that is fully activated paid software bundled with my computer, and I want to keep it.

    In that case, just rename the driver to something like "ClDriver-bak.sys" so as to have a backup. Also, what was the result once you uninstalled the Display Drivers?

    I haven't uninstalled the display drivers yet. I wanted to ask a few questions;
    1. Is it safe to uninstall my display drivers?
    2. Why do I have to use the tool from that website to uninstall them? Can I just do it from the control panel?

    Thanks

    Yes, the driver removal process is safe, although after the removal, the display might be a bit wierd with the resolution but you would be able to work just fine.

    The tool is recommended because many a times, the un-installer from the Control Panel leaves residue files which could cause problems. I hope this helps

    Hi,

    I also posted elsewhere about this matter and the person helping me read the minidump and said that it was only the NVIDIA driver causing problems, not anything else. He suggested that I try older or beta versions of my graphics driver to see if that would solve the problem.

    Seeing that NVIDIA has a beta download available for this graphics driver, instead of experimenting with older/beta drivers I figured that I could just wait for the beta driver to be officially released and upgrade to that. I'm not desperate to be using this thing on battery power right now, anyway.
    Thanks for all the help, I couldn't have done it without you!

    In the BSOD Analysis, I don't think that one can directly tell that the cause is this or that due to it's nature . In no way I am disrespecting the person of other forum but according to me it's just like that. So, in the end did you manage to solve your problem? Did installing the latest BETA Drivers fixed it?

    I haven't installed any drivers. I figured that instead of installing beta drivers, I'd wait for the official driver to be released to upgrade to. I don't like messing with beta stuff.

    I updated my NVIDIA drivers from the official NVIDIA site, and the problem persists.

    Minidump attached.
