PC keeps getting BSOD's randomly

  1. Ok, hello all.

    My home pc keeps giving me blue screens. I have attached the minidumps.

    They happen randomly. It is not from performing a specific task or running a certain type of program. It just happens randomly. Please if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

    Can't find anything. Run HiJack This, latest version, and give us that log.

    The usual causes of intermittent, unpredictable BSOD's are driver errors, inconsistent CPU fans, power supply pauses or dips, too much or too little thermal paste on the heat sink, or unmatched memory modules.
    What is the brand and model of your power supply?

    I can knock the options down possibly, the MiniDumps indicate a 0x7F error and a 0x4E error.

    The 0x7F error mentions a Intel Graphics Driver as the probable cause "ialmdnt5.dll" and the 0x4E error notes the cause as "memory corruption" so it looks like a Driver Error as raybay has mentioned.

    Try to Update your Graphics Drivers to the latest version, or if they already are at the Latest Version then remove them and reinstall them.

    The 0x4E error helps a bit because it seems to be isolated to either the RAM cards themselves or Bad Device Drivers.
