BSOD after Welcome screen

Hi i just randomly got a BSOD today as i started up my PC. it has been running perfectly fine for the time i have had it (since begining of the year). i tried booting up into safe and normally but it never made it past the welcome screen and kept looping for about 9 times. on one time it made it past and showed the windows dump/error dialog box but it BSOD'd right after and upon the next boot it was fine. btw all the BSOD went away really quick as well, after a memory check (??) i think finished

anyways i am posting from it now as it has loaded up fine on about the 10th reboot

i have attached the dump

my specs are
AMD Phenom II X2 545 3.0GHz (unlocked to fully stable X4)
Asus M4A785D-M PRO
Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5 4GB
ASUS DVDRW
Scythe Shuriken
Western Digital Caviar Blue 640GB
HIS HD5770
Corsair HX520
Antec NSK2400

running Windows 7 Professional x64

hopefully someone can help, thanks

Only 31 hotfixes listed in your systeminfo file. There's at least 45 to 60 (or more) available for Windows 7. Please visit Windows Update and get the rest of them.

Please uninstall Daemon Tools and Catalyst Control Center as they can cause BSOD's with some Win7 systems. Feel free to install a fresh copy (if needed) AFTER we finish troubleshooting.

If you still have the Asus PCProbe Utility installed, please either update it or uninstall it. The driver is from 2007. If it's not installed, please visit the Asus website and install it.

This is trending towards a hardware error - but the pattern isn't quite visible yet. Please run Driver Verifier according to these directions:
Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Win7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel

BSOD Screen freezes with red/blue/yellow horizontal lines then BSOD
This normally happens when I first start using the computer for the day. Sometimes when it happens there is a sound to it when it freezes but not always. Once the computer is going good for around 15-20mins then it no longer happens until the next reboot.
