  1. ok everyone, this is one that I can not figure out, for the past few days, I've been receiving these BSOD, and I haven't done ANYTHING to the configuration to my computer. No hardware changes, no software changes, Nothing... I downloaded a program called BluescreenView to try and look at the minidump files, but alas, it doesn't make sense to me. I am noticing a faded red line over the file Ntoskrnl.exe on each of the dumps at the top... but I am not sure how to fix it.

    Each time I get a blue screen its either when the computer is at idle and we're not even on it, or we are just searching the web (facebook, youtube) nothing to serious for the computer at all...

    My computer specs are

    Hi Chris, I'm in the mountain time zone too. You might want to test the memory using Memtest86:

    Create a boot .iso DVD and run the memory for at least 7 passes. Any errors are not good, and you may want to test each module separately

    Have tried the latest Memtest86 and no errors found. since then the errors have gotten worse. I tried a startup repair using the windows 7 repair disc I had made and now i'm getting blue screens with the NTFS.sys file in error... oi

    NTFS.sys... this indicates a hard drive problem. Go to the hard drives manufacturers support and download their test software. Make a bootable CD or DVD and boot from it to start the hard drive test before Windows loads
