  1. I had some issues with a BSOD about three months ago and I was told that the hard drive was causing it. So I had it replaced and everything has been find for about a month and a half now but now all off the sudden I'm getting them again. I'm starting to think it could be my RAM But I'm not sure I'll post the Dumps for anyone interested in helping. and Thank You in advance.

    Looks like a video card or video driver issue, but you haven't mentioned anything about your computers specs

    Remove the video drivers and re-install them

    Try installing the same Nvidia driver from the link I posted, right over the old driver. The driver will uninstall the current driver then install itself
