[BSOD] HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC

HP Recommended

Product Name HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC

Product Number A3G61AV

 

Operating System MS Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

 

Error Message

Critical Events (8)

- Windows "Windows Stopped Working" (1)

- Windows "Video Hardware Error" (6)

- Windows "Shut down unexpectedly"

Please notify me if you need additional information for these reports.

 

I do not remember making any changes when this started happening. The first time it blue screened, a week or two after I got the laptop, I let it restart and continued on hoping it would not happen again. It happens almost daily now, even when graphic intensive programs are not being ran.

 

In addition all of my video drivers are up to date.

You have switchback graphics and the intel part of the graphic solution will use some of your system memory.  I would start you notebook and tap the F10 key and enter the diagnostics and run the hard drive and memory test.  You may even want to download a memory test program that you can run overnight like memtest86:

I ran the memory test and it said it passed. Was it supposed to do something? I did not run the hard drive test.

 

I will run the memtest86 overnight and respond with the results tomorrow morning.

It never hurts to run the hard drive test.
