    What is your computer's complete specifications ?

    This dump cited memory corruption as reason for the crash. Please download memtest, and run 10-12 passes on each RAM module separately.

    Still getting same BSOD

    Windows and memtest86 find no problems with memory
    Boot into Safe Mode,
    Start Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Aceess,
    Firefox, Ultraedit, etc no BSOD after 6 hours

    PCMark basic benchmarks - passed

    =============
    Playing music with MediaMonkey, I can reliably reproduce BSOD within a period of 1 to 3 hours.
    Latest minidump attached

    SWAGs

    Audio setup

    My system is using this, instead of Intel Audio on chip.
    Audio Driver for Intel Desktop Board
    Product Detected Realtek High Definition Audio
    Current Driver Installed 6.0.1.6307
    ALC889

    I do not see a way to switch to Intel High Definition Audio
    Award Modular bios v6.00PG BIOS settings

    -> Azalia = auto gives me realtek, = disabled no audio

    Is this normal

    Again memory corruption is what caused your crash.

    I would suggest you to run your system on one RAM Module for a while and see how your system behaves. Sometimes memtest is unable to find any issues with RAM even when they are there.

    Resolution

    Memory fine. Reinstalled Windows 7, no more BSOD. Thanks for the help
