If it is 0x3b, it is likely due to memory corruption of some sort. But that isn't much info you provided. There should be other Events listed under Application or System with more info.

Is this BSOD reproduceable?

this bugcheck is mostly caused by graphic card drivers. The ATI Catalyst 10.12 was an example where you get often 0x3b crashes.

the nVIDIA driver seems to be the cause:


An exception happened while executing a system service routine.


Arg1: 00000000c0000005,

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+5282b )

Install the latest nVIDIA driver (275.89) for your Quadro FX card, because your driver is from 2010 (Version 258.96):
