This is my first post on here so I hope I am doing it right. My computer keeps crashing at random intervals and is very intermittent but very annoying. It will run for days on end and then all of a sudden it crashes.
I tried to debug the dumpfile myself but I was unsure what it all ment. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
