Intermittent BSOD when coming out of standby

    I would like some assistance with interpreting a couple minidumps

    Randomly when I come out of standby I get a bsod with details:

    * *
    * Bugcheck Analysis *
    * *

    This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
    the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
    as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
    Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
    coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
    /NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
    hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
    If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
    system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
    Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
    Arg2: 00000000, The address that the exception occurred at
    Arg3: 891636dc, Exception Record Address
    Arg4: 891633d8, Context Record Address

    Debugging Details:

    EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at 0x%08lx referenced memory at 0x%08lx. The memory could not be %s.

    All MiniDumps list 0x7E Errors and are caused by "dxgkrnl.sys" which is the Direct X Graphics Kernel.
    These Errors are normally caused by Hardware Incompatibility, Faulty Device Drivers Or System Service and possibly some software issues. Try updating Direct X and Graphics Card Drivers.

    And also run one of the Memory tests below
    Memtest86 -
