  1. Hi all,

    I seem to be getting a couple of random BSOD's.

    It happened about a month ago 3 times, and then I just got another one today. I haven't installed any drivers or software really either.

    Would anyone be able to interpret the minidump file for me please?

    Thanks!!

    Win32K.sys...

    Not much we can say just with one minidump. This is pretty generic. My generic thought... Test your memory using Memtest86. Open the case and clean the dust and debris from it. Make sure the fan(s) are clean and running normally

    Its a laptop, and the fan is running well.

    Bluemouse,
    it would be nice if you gave more info in your post(s)... I am not a mind reader. Since this is a laptop and the fan is running, are you sure it is not overheating? Did you run Memtest86?

    Yeah, sorry, I thought the dump would be more helpful.

    It isn't overheating, but I only did one pass of memtest. Haven't found the time to let it run for 12 hours yet :S
