Several causes



1-Asacpi.sys from 2005. A known cause of BSOD's
ASACPI.sys Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
Quote:
The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
2-old drivers

Code:
ASACPI.sys        fffff880`04894000    fffff880`0489c000    0x00008000    0x42476c4c    3/27/2005 22:30:36                        
nvsmu.sys        fffff880`03e29000    fffff880`03e33000    0x0000a000    0x47100904    10/12/2007 19:53:40                        
nvmfdx64.sys        fffff880`04478000    fffff880`045e0c80    0x00168c80    0x473f7dad    11/17/2007 19:47:57
3-Sptd.sys another known BSOD cause found in daemon tools/alochol.
Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview


4-memory corruption
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.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.


Let us know if you need help with these
