Windows 7 Professional
Various BSOD crashes and system instability - Windows 7 Pro

Hello all,

I am having BSOD problems, and have been for a few months now. For the most part, they are random and fairly sporadic, yet today I had two within five minutes.

My system is a HP and runs Windows 7 Professional. The BSOD's themselves vary each and every time. There are 5 crash dumps in my minidump folder, although at my last count I've had more than five BSOD's, as the system has froze several times on the BS, so I had to shut it down manually and obviously the crash dump didn't complete.

I've already checked RAM and my HD for errors, to rule them out. I'm aware though that that doesn't mean they aren't to blame. Also, I've not installed any new software/hardware since the BS's started, of for some time before the first, so I'm pretty sure it isn't that.

Lastly, for a while before the first, and ever since, the whole system seems to be getting more and more sluggish, slow, unresponsive, and generally a pain to use. It also seems to freeze fairly often, without a BS appearing.

While running Windows (and MSE in background) only, it appears to be using around 1.1Gb of RAM. Don't know if that's normal Windows behaviour, or that it might be indicative of some problem.

Due to the general instability of the system, I'm fearful I might have come across some form of Virus or Malware that MSE can't track, though I sure hope not.

Lastly (apologies for the huge post) I've attached all of the crash dumps from the system, and hope that someone smarter than I can make head or tail of the problem.

Cheers in advance!
