Sudden constant BOSD...

  1. Hi I had my computer for about 2 years now, everything has been great with it. All of a sudden a week ago I got a BSOD and ever since then I have been getting them constantly. I even got them trying to go into safe mood. However after a few in a row the computer then works fine for a while. I also did a disk error checking and a Memtest both came up fine. I scanned for viruses and spyware using: malwarebytes, avast, and supper anti-spyware. All hardware in the computer is stock and I did not add any hardware or software for a long while. I also updates all drivers after it began with no improvement.

    Please Help =\


    My computer is a Emachines model: ET1831
    Windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601
    CPU: GenuineIntel Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz Intel586, level: 6
    2 logical processors, active mask: 3
    RAM: 4025729024 total
    VM: 2147352576, free: 1954770944

    This is the information I revived from WhoCrashed:

    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\121811-16738-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7CC40)
    Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x0, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8800F16796F)

    Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

    This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.

    This is a e Machines, and because you have checked the memory and C drive you could try reloading Windows 7 fresh. Do you have a restore partition on the hard drive? If you do, you could try doing a factory restore. If you have a CD or DVD for restoring the computer boot from that to begin the Windows install

    Ok so the computer froze in the boot screen and didn't turn on for about 10 minutes. I haven't reinstalled windows because I'm sure it would freeze trying to do so (it freezes during system restores and even with the windows cd in). However then it randomly work fine again. Also when it froze, even in the boot screen, the screen is weird colors.

    Do you think its hardware? And if chkdisk and memmtest are fine what could it be?

    It could be the power supply or motherboard too

    Yea this is what I was worried about. How would I be able to find out if one of these are causing the problem?
    I really cant afford to buy a new computer right now. =(

    I just got this error message today...
    Problem: Video hardware error
    Files that help describe the problem:
    WD-20110323-0208.dmp
    sysdata.xml

    View a temporary copy of these files
    Warning: If a virus or other security threat caused the problem, opening a copy of the files could harm your computer.
