    Hi PieJie and Welcome to the forums,

    I was able to analyze only 2-3 Dump files a bit nicely and each one points to a hardware problem. On looking at the BSOD's at general, almost each DUMP has got a different BugCheck code associated with it. Since, I am a newb, I cannot thoroughly analyze as the seniors but one thing which I found common that there are many errors pointing towards Bad Memory i.e. Bad RAM like a bad address or a user program trying to access Kernel Space. I could be seriously wrong but could you please run MEMTEST and post the results here?

    Here is a nice guide which you could follow on how to run the Memtest - Tutorial: How to use Memtest - TechSpot Forums

    Also, if you can access the RAM slots, please make sure that those do not have dust in between by removing all RAM's and blowing some moisture free air into the slots and test again.

    In the meantime, as time permits, will do further analyzing

    Thanks blueelvis,

    Unfortunatly i have finals this week and the next one so i kind of need my PC even if i is just working like it is now. Being a laptop getting to the RAM is kind of hard but I will check that and the MEMTEST out when my finals are over.

    Thanks alot and I hope hearing of you when my finals are over,

    Yup, dreaded exams :P


    Sure thing, you could try and check the RAM for errors after exams. Till then, I ll try to do some more work on your Dump files

    And yeah, ALL THE BEST for the exams

    The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
    - borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
    - BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
    - overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
    - compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers)
    - low-level driver problems
    - or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

    You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics
