Caused by memory corruption ( direr). Please run driver verifier to find out which driver.

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/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

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"
- 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).

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.

Driver verifier still not enabled. after you think you have it running please type

verifier /query and if enabled it will show you the drivers it is looking at.

I tried to run it as asked. I used all the settings, and in the end it told me to reboot my system for the settings to take effect. And so I restarted my computer, and I got the BSOD not long after my computer was running.

When I checked with verifier /query on the start menu, it came up with a CMD prompt but disappeared immediately.

start>search>cmd>verifier /query should work

It doesn't seem I can get the verifier to run. I had to start in safe mode because of my computer BSOD as soon as windows started. I tried the verifier but it still is not running, and I can't make it start. After configuring it, I restart the computer, load in safe mod, and i try to verifier /query and it says no drivers have been verified, even after an hour.

I will attach two BSOD that I got when trying to load Windows after I did the verifier.
