Unexplained bsod in windows 7 - Help

  1. Hi guys,

    First post here - I've recently upgraded to Windows 7 and keep getting BSOD's at random intervals. Sometimes I may be playing a game, sometimes just copying files, the crashes don't seem to happy when I'm doing anything specific.

    I've used WhoCrashed to try and analyse the dump files (attached), but it doesn't really mean that much to me, I was hoping someone could help me pinpoint the problem. My system worked fine on XP, I only get crashes in Windows 7. Was wondering whether it could be a hardware problem with the RAM (since only 3GB of RAM are detected in XP, but in W7 the full 6GB shows up - maybe there is a problem with one stick - what do you think?)

    Thanks in advance for any help, it's very much appreciated.


    System spec:
    Intel i7 920 @ 2.67GHz
    MSI x58m motherboard
    ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5
    OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 Low-Voltage Triple Channel (OCZ3G1333LV6GK)
    OCZ StealthXStream 700w Silent SLI Ready Power Supply
    3 SATA HDDs

    Just noticed there's a separate section for BSOD's - can a mod please move this? Thanks
