    Enable Driver Verifier and wait for another crash to happen.

    Ok. Doesn't Driver Verifier push the computer into a BSOD quickly? I've read where it can cause an endless loop of BSOD's. Just want to make sure I don't render this PC useless by enabling it... Thanks so much for the reply!

    **Quick edit. Do I enable it on all installed drivers?

    That's why you ought to create a system restore point prior to enabling it. And it can be manually disabled. Here are the instructions: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Yes, it does, that's the point. That is what helps us identify the cause of the crash.

    I went through the steps and my PC restarted. I chose Create standard settings > Automatically select all drivers installed on this computer > Finish. Wish me luck!

    Driver Verifier is quite a detailed topic as there are many features and methods used by it. The results vary from drivers being monitored, features enabled and the functions which drivers are performing. The BSOD loop occurs when you set the flag for DV to hook onto a driver which is loaded on boot, if this driver misbehaves DV brings down the system; now because this driver is loaded on boot the system is enclosed in a loop.

    I recommend not enabling Low Resource Simulation and Force Pending I/Os, the reason for this is quite complicated, although to put it briefly: they create an unrealistic environment for the drivers which causes them to operate irrationally, creating a false positive report on the drivers if they misbehave.

    You never seemed to have run memtest, I highly recommend you do so as it seems like bad RAM to me.
    I see a misaligned instruction pointer, usually caused by failing memory; the details of which I will not go into as it's quite long. I suggest you memtest86 for no less than 8 passes.

    Memtest was going to be my next suggestion.

    Ok. Do I need to re-do the Verifier since I had already started it prior to finding the instructions? If yes, do I need to delete the settings, restart, and follow the sevenforums instructions? I was in in the process of that, but I stopped.

    Regarding MEMTEST 86: I have it loaded onto a USB stick. It's drive I: and when I open that drive, there are four files listed. Then, I went through Settings > Changed PC Settings > Update and Recovery > Recovery > Advanced Startup. I told it to boot from a USB device, but I have no idea which one to choose. I have six UEFI devices listed:
    UEFI OS
    UEFI: Samsung HD103UI (assuming this is my HD)
    P0: ST1000DM003-1ER162 - listed twice
    P1: HL-DT-ST DVD+/- RW (assuming this is my DVD drive) - listed twice

    I did have an IOMEGA external HD attached via USB that I've unplugged, along with a Logitech dongle for my wireless keyboard/mouse. Should I choose UEFI OS?

    No, you can disable it for the time being (at least while you are memtesting) Try adjusting the devices until Memtest starts booting up.

    I finally got the PC to boot from my USB drive. It's about 20% done on the first pass. I'll report back if there are any errors after 8 passes. Thanks to the both of you. =)
