I have an HP 8440p which keeps blue screening.  Can some one give me a hand with these minidump files?  I am new to working with them, and don't quite know what I'm looking for.  I can post more minidumps if need be.
thanks.

The two I looked at refer to rsafal.sys that belongs to Altiris Recovery Solution. Try re-installing that software.

Can you try removing it temporarily to test?

Please post mini dump if you still get BSOD.

Get Autoruns here. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902

Open it and select the Drivewrs tab. Locate the rsafal.sys entry and disable it then restart the computer to test.

Again, please post mini dumps if you still get BSOD

You might see it if you maximize the window and widen the Image Path column to see the file names.

Update - I have an identical system with the same problem - Both started immediately after installing Windows Updates.  I'm goin to see if I can isolate the update causing the problem.

I would try removing the drivers for the display adapter and then restart the computer.

Should I reinstall them after the reboot, or wait to see what happens?

They might automatically re-install or we might have to locate the drivers for it. Let's see what happens.

Removing the Windows Updates from this month seems to have solved the problem.
