Vista 32-bit constant BSOD - different error every time

  1. I am currently running in Safe Mode because David Silverman knows what is wrong with my computer.

    Whenever I try to boot in normal mode the computer BSOD's within 3 hours, a different error every time. I have scanned the computer with avast! antivirus, LAVASOFT ad-aware, Spybot, and CCleaner, there appears to be no malware on my HD.
    Certain Programs that seem to cause it:

    • Firefox
    • VirtualBox
    • Minecraft
    • Steam
    • Chrome

    Anyway, here are my specs:

    Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP 2
    3.00 GB of RAM
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.01 GHz
    Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce 6100 nForce 430

    I'm assuming that will be all you'll need.

    I have tried to do a complete reset, but the crashes continued shortly afterwards.
    It works perfectly fine in safe mode.

    Your comment re: David Silverman eludes me.
    The fact that you are able to run in Safe Mode indicates to me a high likelyhood of software or driver incompatibilities.

    It will be helpful if you post a zip of your most recent dumps.

    This post will provide some helpful starting information for you...
