Random yet persisting BSODs
First time user here with a BSOD problem. Usually I can google and fix the problems but this one seems like a tough one =[, so that is why I came here for expert advice.
The BSOD would happen around at very random times. Sometimes two in a row or sometimes a month apart, which makes debugging a pain in the butt.
Sometimes it will show the blue screen, it doesnt leave any minidump file for me to debug, nor does it leave anything in the System Log. The BSOD always just say "Collecting data from crash dump"
Every time, it would be a different error code.
OCZ 4GB DDR2-800 SLI READY
Silverstone Element ST50EF-PLUS
2x 1TB Seagate 7200.10 in Raid 0
Things I have checked:
Memtest for 12+ hours
Intel CPU Burn-in Test for 7 passes
I have attached what is outlined is required for BSOD.
I also have attached three camera photos of the BSOD.
The one with the black screen was one that I captured a month ago.
The two BSOD happened 10 minutes within each other.
There are more BSOD than this, but I dont have photos of it.

Hi and welcome,
There is no .DMP files...
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
** Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.**
*Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl Press Enter.
*Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
*Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
*Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kb) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
Reboot if changes have been made.
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
