    BSOD - Critical_Structure_Corruption (109)

    Over the past few days I have been getting a blue screen on my laptop with the error message CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION. It happens when I am performing any sort of task and can be as frequent as one every few minutes. It seems that the frequency of them has reduced slightly but I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me what might be causing them. I've pasted the contents of one of the minidump files below.

    Thank you in advanced.

    This bugcheck is generated when the kernel detects that critical kernel code or
    data have been corrupted. There are generally three causes for a corruption:
    1) A driver has inadvertently or deliberately modified critical kernel code
     or data. See
    2) A developer attempted to set a normal kernel breakpoint using a kernel
     debugger that was not attached when the system was booted. Normal breakpoints,
     "bp", can only be set if the debugger is attached at boot time. Hardware
     breakpoints, "ba", can be set at any time.
    3) A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.
