  1. hey guys I saw the great community help here a decided to post my urgent problem. I got a BSOD last night for the first time in forever and I thought it was nothing, but then they would keep coming up 5 mins after I reboot every single time. The newest software I have is MusicNotes from almost a week ago. I cleaned registry with CCleaner and RegCure, still BSOD (I'm writing this in Safe Mode). attached are the last 6 minidumps (they're prob all the same)
    Thanks for the help!

    Check the memory using Memtest86. Let it run for at least 7 passes...

    that wont fix the problem, only identify it, right?

    Yes, this testing will tell you if the memory is causing the BSOD's

    ok, it just finished the first pass, took 18 mins and 0 errors, so I'll update in a few hours if I don't cancel it

    I let it run for 8 hours and after 10 passes, no errors were found. can you make any sense of the minidumps?

    I haven't been able to read minidumps on this new system yet... run Check disk on your C drive and enable a check on restart

    Can you remove MusicNotes and see if the BSOD's stop?

    yea, I also updated to a new version of HandBrake the same day (Jan. 19) so I'll remove that too if MusicNotes wasnt the issue

    well it's been almost an hour and no BSOD. i guess removing the MusicNotes suite solved it (I hope). Do you think if I reinstall it, I'll get the BSOD again? Why would this only happen to this computer when my other computer with this installed doesn't crash? PC's are a mystery....

    Make sure that the version of MusicNotes is proper and compatible with Windows 7. The website should tell you
