Seemingly random BSODs, Win 7, various errors

  1. Hi,

    This looks like the place to get help. I've followed the advice in the stickies first (apart from any that will void the warranty) but still have the issues.

    This laptop (Advent Modena) is about 5 months old, no problems until about a month ago when bsods started.

    Used the built in recovery to return it to when I received it but they are still happening, sometimes straight after boot, sometimes when I open Google Chrome, sometimes I can use it for a couple of hours without issue and then it will bsod.

    Thanks for any help, it's driving me crazy now! :(

    My minidumps are below.

    I left Memtest running last night and stopped it after 15 passes with no errors.

    I know that Memtest says that in a tiny number of cases it won't detect faulty RAM, but would you be confident the RAM was okay after 15 passes?

    I'm now debating whether to do a full reinstall of Windows 7 (not using the manufacturers recovery partition like I did yesterday) but am worried that if I have to return the machine after that they will refuse it as it doesn't have the original install on.

    What would you do in this situation?
