Hi,
I just got a "silent" BSOD. I want to say that while I was using VMware Workstation 11 (Windows Vista RTM in the virtual machine), my computer restarted quickly and didn't show a blue screen,but I got Minidump files.

STOP: 0x0000007A (0x0000000000000004, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA800B6CC4E0, 0xFFFFF960001C10D0)

The Minidump files are attached. I will also give a screenshot to diagnose the issue better.

Was the driver installed by windows? If so uninstall it and use manufacturer's driver instead.

No, I installed it by myself. It was in a drivers folder which contained the device drivers. Someday I found a problem with the WLAN device (it could not connect to the Internet wirelessly but through wired it could) and I solved it by going to the Lenovo Support page with the drivers and I installed the newest one. Then it was OK with no problems.
