seems this might be confined to drivers for the gpu and/or monitor profile
edit: also came across this...informative:
The resolution is the same, you need an updated driver file for some piece
of hardware on the system. Not necessarily video, but something. The error
means that at some point in the driver file code sequence a pointer (some
value stored previously in system memory) is referenced that doesn't exist
or whose value is meaningless to the current operation. Sometimes this will
cause a loop as it attempts to correct itself (sort of an else/then bypass),
and for others the system will just simply stop (hence the BSOD) as it
doesn't know what to do.
