    3 BSODs in 1 Month, Seemingly Random


    I have a refurb Acer Aspire laptop that I use lightly -- no gaming, mostly just surfing and word processing.

    I'm not sure what was going on when each crash happened, but it's possible I had a lot of windows and programs running at once.

    I think the code was 0xa00001. There might have been more zeroes than that.

    I've read much of this thread, and you guys are amazing.

    DRIVER VERIFIER

    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please read and run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.
