Three BSODs in the last month

  1. I have had 3 BSoDs in the last month and am not sure what is causing the problem. If I remember correctly, it named ntoskrnl.exe as the problem file. I will attach all 3 of the minidumps from the last month. The Blue screens seem to happen randomly as far as I can tell.

    Here are my computer specs:
    Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz
    8GB DDR3 1600
    600W PSU
    1TB SATA II HDD
    PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 1GB
    Gigabyte GA-770T-USB3 motherboard

    Edit: Apparently, lots of other people have had trouble with this motherboard. Perhaps I should try flashing the bios?

    Very random BSOD's for sure... What antivirus program are you running?

    Microsoft Security Essentials and Spybot S&D.

    Try this

    I suggest you to try the following tips:

    Update graphic drivers
    Update sound drivers
    Clean junk from your computer
    Repair Windows registry keys
    Clean computer from viruses

    For repairing registry install a 3rd party software Reginout.

    I got a bluescreen again while I was gone a little while ago. Here's the latest dump.

    Before I got the bluescreen, I did the following:
    -installed new video and sound drivers
    -downloaded all windows updates
    -flashed to latest bios
    -repaired registry using reginout
    -cleaned computer using Ccleaner and reginout
    -did a scan using Spybot S&D

    I'm now gonna do a scan using Microsoft Security Essentials and the above program mentioned.

    I uninstalled Spybot, used the temp file cleaner, and scanned with MSE. No viruses. Maybe uninstalling Spybot fixed the problem. I guess all I can do is wait to see if it happens again. Any other suggestions?

    "Any other suggestions?"...

    Only if the BSOD's return ;)

    Just got another BSOD. It happened while I was gaming. I was playing counterstrike source for about 10 minutes when it happened so I doubt it's heat related. Plus I was playing Dead Island for 3 hours earlier with no issues. I got the blue screen when I went to exit the game.

    Here's the latest dump.

    Edit: I just looked inside the computer and one of the sticks of ram wasn't locked on, on one side. Could that cause the blue screens?
