    Ok, ya those do contain GPU errors.
    Code:
    2: kd> lmvm nvlddmkm
    start             end                 module name
    fffff880`10222000 fffff880`10ed0000   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
        Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
        Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys
        Image name: nvlddmkm.sys

    I don't have a symbol file for nvidia dumps, so that's all I can really tell.

    If you've done a complete OSRI or factory restore, its likely something is wrong with the GPU and it could be hardware based.

    But again, I would still blame the game source as the fact that no other game does it, and they all run on the same APIs, I would think the game is the problem.

    My recommendation? Switch to Witcher 2. Its a better game ;)

    And the fact that it only happens in one part of the game. T_T

    Well I'm ramboing the entire thing, rushing through anything that occurs in the swamp saving every time an important event happens. :))

    I still do hope that nothing is wrong with my gpu. It would be a pain to have it brought oversees and all. :/ seeing that the country i'm staying in right now has no alienware repair centers. (philippines as an exchange student)

    Well let us know what happens! I think its just the game, but time will tell. I think you'll survive if you have to move on to something besides Witcher, even if it is a great game :)

    I've been numb to the blue screen, whenever it is downloading or playing games which requried full speed of GPU, such as shogun 2.

    Your system bluescreens when downloading? Sounds like a big problem to me. Shouldn't ever get a BSOD unless there are hardware problems or bad software problems. Or overclocking too much.

    UPDATE:
    After looking around on the internet for other viable solutions I came upon a suggestion that I should overclock my GPU. And Yeah it did work. I havent had a blue screen in days. I'll update once I get blue screen.

    Wow. Never heard of overclocking fixing any problem. Usually causes problems. Interesting.

    UPDATE: Yeah I haven't crashed and I breezed through the swamp. So definitely something to do with me changing the GPU variables.
