The problem for me was flash video, would cause it every time.

If I was playing a game and then tried to play a video in youtube on a second monitor it would blue screen. The recommendation was to disabled hardware acceleration but that didn't work well it did but in the combination with this: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=363233

What are you doing on your laptop before you get the blue screen?

I'm actually not sure as this is someone else's computer. Will ask them to try and remember.

Catalyst driver crash, so either an issue with the driver, or the GPU is faulty.

Hi guys, a new BSOD screen keeps coming up now once I removed the Catalyst Control Panel completely... BSOD every 5 - 10 minutes. Anybody know the meaning of this new one please?

Thanks in advance!

That's the graphics driver. Not the Catalyst Control Software - that's the software that you use to control the card. The driver is how the kernel communicates with the hardware. Removing the CCC just removes a layer of software control.

So update the driver from the official HP site, and if it carries on doing it, video stress test applications. Try from within Windows first, then if it keeps BSoDing, then get Hiren's boot CD and try it from outside Windows.

What do you mean by "video stress test applications"?

Thanks.

You could try FurMark or Video Memory Stress Test. There are a few others too. Hiren's boot CD contains a few memory testing applications for the video card that can be done outside the OS if the BSoDs continue to be produced by testing.

BSoDs are likely due to driver corruption (hence updating the drivers), and graphics card memory errors. They're unlikely to be produced by GPU errors. The error you have, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, is a memory error. If you can rule out the graphics card then you may want to test the memory with memtest86 (on Hiren's), but it's unlikely to be system memory.

If the driver update doesn't fix it, and if there are no memory errors on the card or system, then back up everything and reinstall Windows. Because that will then rule out all software and driver errors, and if it still does it, it's a hardware fault that hasn't been picked up.

Looks like a typical HP GPU fault to me - if your drivers don't fix it (most likely they won't) then you could try reflowing the GPU otherwise looks like replacing the motherboard/laptop

Reflowing the GPU? What does that mean?

I really hoped I wouldn't have to reinstall Windows.. So many applications to have to reinstall again!

On 7 you can do a refresh. It'll keep your files and leave a list of programs to reinstall on your desktop. My Windows installs are a PITA to fix that way because of all the non-installed programs that don't appear in the refresh list. :)

Meh, looks like I will just reinstall Windows from the HP recovery partition and see what happens. Hopefully it will be sorted then!

Thanks again for all your help guys! Much appreciated!

This video is a good demonstration (not for your particular model but a good example of how to do it) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VldNJ7IvWhY

But eliminate all other possible causes first as this really is a last resort.

Note that the reflow can completely bugger the whole thing so I accept no responsibility etc....
