    It is the OPINION of most of the members of this forum that the most reliable method to read the dumps is with Microsoft Debugger. You can see that the results are different. Why not post yours too and I can give my opinion. If we go by your report your driver is not the true cause regardless of what bluescreen shows. That information is based upon my experience with dozens and dozens and dozens of BSOD analysis.

    I didn't know different methods to read dumps given different results. I'm not familiar with BSOD and how to read them, but what do you suggest I try next? Do you still think its a hardware issue based on these new BSOD? Should I still try to run driver verifier adding on one driver at a time to try to identify the source or is that a waste of time? I actually tried disabling volmgrx.sys in driver verifier but it still bluescreened so it follows with what you mentioned that volmgrx.sys is most likely not the source.

    Thanks again for your help.

    If you run driver verifier for 36 hours and it is a driver problem, the driver will be revealed. Lets work as a team. Run verfifier for 36 hours give me the dump reports and tell me the driver that you see. If each report shows a different driver and/or shows a Microsoft driver that it a strong indication of hardware.

    The problem th running it for 36 hours is that immediately upon startup I get a blue screen with the mini dump I last uploaded. It occurs every time I startup with driver verifier enabled. I would have to go into safe mode to disable driver verifier in order to get back to the desktop.

    Disble the verifier, then boot in safe mode. If you do not get a BSOD there is another course of action that we can try.

    Even with the verifier enabled, it does not BSOD in safe mode. Once in safe mode I disable the verifier and can restart the computer normally. Now with the original BSOD w/ hal.dll, that occurs intermittently and about once in every few days.

    Either start disabling non-essential drivers in the device manager (in safe mode), or selectively enable driver verification with verifier.

    I disabled all non-essential devices in device manager, and with driver verifier enabled it still gave the same BSOD. I'll now try selectively disabling driver verification.

    Okay so now there is only one driver that is causing the BSOD on startup with driver verification enabled and its ntoskrnl.exe. If I disable that, there's no BSOD with driver verification enabled. So what could be the cause of this?

    Edit1: I wanted to clarify that all other drivers were enabled except ntoskrnl.exe in driver verifier and the BSOD did not occur. Please note that all these new BSODs only occur with driver verifier enabled.

    I have attached the latest BSODs in case they are any different.
