Every once and a while i'll be able to correctly eject the hard drive and the error will stop but usually after plugging in or ejecting the hard drive will cause the error to begin again.
I have no idea why this is happening and would love some help, I have provided some useful information below... cheers,

We really need the actual DMP file.
If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.
edit: even without seeing the DMP the first parameter is a memory exception. I can tell you more after I see the DMP but test your memory
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
