  1. Hi all, I'm wondering if a kind soul would help me with interpreting a couple of these minidump files into English :)

    I've just started experiencing daily BSODs, and I've run Windows Memory Diagnostics and Memtest86+, both of which come back clean.

    Thank you guys so much.

    Have you checked the hard drive for errors. Can we have your systems specs?

    What would you recommend for HD testing?

    It's a stock system, plus an additional 500gb hard drive, 8gb (4x2gb) mem, 500w psu and radeon hd 5550.

    I just ran SFC / SCANNOW (cant attach url for information, due to post limitations) and it came up clean. I ran it four times just to be sure.

    Your problem BSOD's are not caused by a malware infection. What program is being used for virus protection. Are you running more than 1

    Hard drive testing:
    go to Computer, right-click on the C drive. Select properties, tools, check for errors, and set a disk check for the next start up

    Hard drive scans complete, twice... no issues.

    I ran another memtest because I read that it can be inaccurate if run just once... still not a single error.

    Here are the latest two dump files, which occured between my first post and now.

    Two things I'm noticing:

    1. "ntoskrnl.exe" is the top line of every dump file
    2. In the dump files, it says that ntoskrnl.exe has a date of June 22nd.. that's almost 3 months ago. It's worth mentioning that I have NOT been crashing for 3 months, this just started within the past week or two.
