In the meant time, does the driver verifier present information in any other way than BSODs that I could send to you? Logs perhaps?
    Nope, the Driver Verifier presents the information in the Dump file only as it keeps on checking the Driver which is causing problems and then make the system Bugcheck. Now, since the BugCheck captures all the available information at the time of crash, we most likely get the driver offending.

    You need to run Driver Verifier for atleast 36 hours continuously and do your normal work. If you know what causes the crash then keep on doing it repeatedly.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^.

    I have no new BSODs and I have not been able to run the PC continously for 36 hours yet. I have had a number of spontaneous hard resets though with about the same frequency of the BSODs previously. Perhaps the driver verifier is interfering with normal BSOD handling causing a hard reset?

    Are you getting any BSOD's? If yes then please post back a freshly generated SF Diagnostic ZIP file so that it could be analyzed.

    Please make sure that there are no loose connections in the system by re-plugging all the cables.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^.

    As I said in my last message, I have had no new BSODs while running the driver verifier last week. I disabled the driver verifier last night and I already have 2 more BSODs, so I strongly suspect the driver verifier was stopping the BSODs from occuring. Since the driver verifier was not running while I got those BSODs you are unlikely to find anything new, so I did not attach them.

    I checked the cables, did not find anything wrong.

    I ran IntelBurnTest, and found that it did not always return the expected results. I am now trying a small underclock (instead of the default configuration) to see if that fixes my issues.

    Were you overclocking your system? If yes, then please reset everything to STOCK Settings by going to BIOS Settings and then resetting everything to default.

    What kind of results are you getting in the Intel Burn Test?

    As stated in my last response: I did use the default BIOS settings (and I have been using those settings through this entire thread up to that point). Now I'm using a small (10%) underclock instead.

    As I understand Intel Burn Test runs some calculation 10 times (by default) which has a known answer. A deviation from this answer must mean a failure. On the default BIOS configuration Intel Burn Test on the Standard setting would give a failure on the 2nd/3rd run. With the underclocked BIOS configuration Intel Burn Test on the High setting (even more demanding than Standard) returns the expected answer all 10 runs.

    I have not experienced any BSODs with the underclock. I will wait a couple of days to make sure.
