    Computer keeps crashing when using media center extender


    I have a computer I use for media, mostly it is just running windows media center. I then connect to it using an extender to watch tv and other media from my computer. Tonight when I tried to watch a show it crashed several times. Looking in the event viewer I can see that it is actually crashing quite a bit on its own. I ran the utility from the BSOD instructions and I'm attaching the resulting zip.

    I downloaded the windows debugger tool and it is seeming to point to nvstor.sys which looks to be my nvidia motherboard. This is an older computer, and the driver through nvidia say they are for vista and windows 7; however, microsoft says that the motherboard is compatible. I'm in the process of downloading the driver anyway and I'll see if it makes a difference. Hopefully that is the only issue. If there is anything else anybody can add I'd still be appreciative with any help.

    Looking through the event viewer and reliability report, I also don't see any crashes before March 10th. So, that makes me think that a windows update may have caused the problem. I got a couple of updates on the 9th and a lot of updates on the 10th. I wish it was easy to tell which update might have caused the problem.
