    Windows 8


    Hello guys,

    I am not a great computer guy, so please forgive my rather amateurish description.

    This BSOD only started some time about a week ago, which became frustrating despite I am a casual gamer it was probably the busier periods a university student could have and nothing goes better when you have 3 essays to write and your laptop just keeps on BSOD.

    Most of them come with the error of System Thread Exception Not Handled while Video TDR Failure only happened once, with the similar setting happening. Before the BSOD, the screen usually will flicker, as in goes black, and then backlight lights up and thats about it.

    I also did my own share of research. Since most of them pinpoints that it could be solved by updating Nvidia driver, I've probably done that 5 times with 2 times uninstalling the driver. However I am not quite sure whether uninstalling the driver from the Control Panel is correct as I dare not to uninstall from the Device Manager.

    I've uploaded the bugcheck analysis but am unable to analyse it, hoping you guys can help shed some light with this issue as I am still in a pretty desperate period as a university student.


    EDIT: Dump also uploaded.

    From my own experience installing all the different program features in the Nvidia package can cause a lot of problems. I would only ever suggest installing what you actually are going to use in the driver package.

    You can uninstall via the control panel it won't hurt anything.
