    Zip up 5 or 6 of the most recent dumps and attach here. Look in c:\windows\minidump.

    The forum accepts the dmp file format as an attachment (100KB limit). You can attach 5 at a time.

    if you suspect bad ram, run memtest 86+ from a floppy for at least 7 passes.
    any errors indicates bad ram.
    The vast majority of BSODs are caused by bad drivers or bad ram.
    only a minidump will show if you are having driver issues.

    In the meantime I suggest running crap cleaner registry repair

    Your dumps are from July '05. The problem is caused by a camera driver - snpstd.sys. Do you still have this driver insatalled? Otherwise see if you have some newer dumps.

    saltheart: Your crash is caused by Zonealarm. Update Zonealarm to see if it solves the problem.

    I think its a Sony USB camera driver, or part thereof.
