It could be a driver problem, bad RAM or a bad pagefile. Set your pagefile to nothing, reboot, then set it back to the original value and reboot again. Check if the issue is gone. As pagefiles are kept on the HD, it could also be an issue with the HD or it's file-system. So you should also test your HD using it's manufacturer's diagnostic utility, and if that finds no faults, run chkdsk /x on all the drive-letters. Also run memtest 86+ to test the RAM. You'll find those tools on the UBCD:

If it's being caused by a driver you can also zip you'r last 3 *.dmp files and upload them via the link below:
Can you give more details before the crash: Recent installations, etc. and also

Zip there files located here and upload them here.


Try running a system file check by:
Start Button-> Search-> Type "cmd.exe"
Wait for search to find "CMD"
Next, right click cmd.exe and select "Run as Administrator"
Type: sfc /scannow and paste the results here for everyone to see.

#2 if you bluescreen while running again
Enter "Safe Mode" and select command console and type sfc /scandisk from there.

The more info you can give to better inform us. The better we can help you out.
