    We need some clarification here: Are the only times you have ever received a BSOD is when your accessed your external harddrive via firewire?!

    I keep all of my files on my harddrive and looking back I noticed that at all times I'm either listening to music from my external when a BSOD occurs or if I am browsing through folders on my external.

    I can't remember if the early bsods occurred while I was accessing it. So i can't really say for certainty that every time it was.

    It was just a random thought since I'm trying to figure this out. After several months of this, I'm seriously just trying to find anything to figure out the blaime of it.

    Edit:

    Okay, I attempted to go and update teh drivers for my external harddrive. It's a lacie d2 quadro 1 tb. I didn't realize it had specific drivers for it so i downloaded them and when i did my tablet/mouse and keyboard all stopped working. I had to use a ps/2 connector to set my keyboard up for it to be registured again and when i uninstalled the lacie drivers, control of my tablet came back.

    I didn't research the company on this external since I've had it for quite some time. I just had it as a backup incase my computer crashed and then as a storage so that i could easily wipe a computer if need be without losing personal files.

    Another BSOD out of random. This time it was when my computer was in standby mode. I only knew it had happened because I got the 'windows recovered from an error' popup when I started my computer back up.

    I was searching around and considering running a driver verification since it seems to be pointing at another system file this time.

    I had to zip the file since it was over 1 mb

    Another bluescreen randomly. At first there was a crash. The screen froze while I was messing with a scanned image. I restarted it and then photoshop didn't recognize my graphics card in the performance preference. Then after a moment with nothing running except one messenger it did a bsod.

    This is the 3rd time in 2 days.

    I know that I've been having issues with this for a while but I seriously could use some opinions. I'm not sure what to do.

    Had to zip it cuz it was over 200 kb

    got my hopes up ymulla lol Good luck at solving your issue

    I did the memory86 test overnight again with no errors even though the last memory dump said it was a memory corruption. I'm starting to lean towards it maybe being the motherboard again? That or still an issue with my graphics card.

    I'm guessing that no one in the forum wants to help anymore or are stumped as to what my issue might be.

    Either or I'll upload the last minidump again. I'm just at a loss for what I should do now
