  1. I've been reading most all of the messages on this board but I have not been able to find a solution to my BSOD. The lockups are very random and unexpected and I've probed the temps and voltage and things seem to be in tolerance. I was wonder if someone can read my miniDumps to see what might be the problem.

    Go here and follow the instructions on testing your memory and hard drive for errors:
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic51365.html

    ...are you over-clocking? All the minidumps are the same:
    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    ntoskrnl.exe

    I had experimented with OC in the past. I just ran the Mem Test with 2 passes per 2gb memory with no errors. Going to check on the Power supply now....

    Here's the Spec... I ran prime95 for a few hours and the voltage and Temp did not seem abnormal...

    Is Windows 7 fully updated including the optional updates? How about the video cards drivers?

    Occurrences are random. Frequency is < 5 times a week. Only time will tell. I also redid my page file by setting it to 0 and defragging my drive then setting it back to being managed by windows.

    No BSOD in one week! Amazing! I'm not too sure what did the trick?

    Just got the same old BSOD this morning. No indication to any driver except ntoskrnl.exe... No hardware was changed. However there was a warning in the Event Log about 2 hours before BSOD

    ID: 6, Application Name: Microsoft Office Outlook, Application Version: 12.0.6607.1000, Microsoft Office Version: 12.0.6612.1000. This session was terminated unexpectedly.

    This was new and did not show up in the Log over the past 2 weeks.

    Are you still getting these BSOD's relating to Office?

    Had another BSOD 2 days ago that was not related to anything.... The steps I took 3 weeks ago seemed to help. Is there something that will log BIOS stats so you could see any changes before a crash? I have ASUS PC Probe II and I ran it for a while and saw no problems.

    If these infrequent BSOD"s keep happening, you could try raising the memory voltage (VCC) is the bios a notch or two

    I took it off of Auto and changed it from 1.50 to 1.56. Let see if this helps... Thanks again for your support...

    Okay thanks kbeattyamx,
    If you still get a BSOD raise the Memory VCC a little more
