I' ll have a look asap... It does not have toe be hw. Could be software/drivers.

Did you try running in Safe mode for a while to see if that runs stable?

Great, thank you. The thing is that it's fairly unpredictable when it will happen, and in particular I can't run many of my most demanding programs in safe mode. Sometimes I'll run pretty demanding games for hours at a time with no trouble, then get a blue screen while reading my email. I only get 1-2 blue screens per day, so I'm not sure how long I'd have to be stable in safe mode to reach any conclusion. How does one typically handle that?

Please de-install your logitech camera software as a test.

Your last three dumps were:
Some driver, amd cpu driver and a graphics driver....

Still would like the rest of th JCGriff info, those logs get updated as well and we need them to be sure...

Do a graphics test CAREFULLY:
Try this free video stress test: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Quote:
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit

I'm actually having trouble locating any Logitech camera software on my machine, though I do recall using a Logitech webcam while I was on the road. Do you have an executable name in mind that I can look for?

Latest JCGriff info is attached.

With respect to the graphics test, I'm not able to locate some of the options you mention. I've attached a screenshot of what settings I see available. Taking your "CAREFULLY" to heart, I'll wait to hear back from you before I run it. So I looked up the Furmark tutorial on the forums and did what it said there. Temp maxed at 87C, no visual artifacts or other issues, fan speed maxed at 40%. I quit when it leveled off--is there any virtue in leaving it running after that?

Thanks again for your help!

Don't know the program, probably deleted already... but the driver is still there: LVUSBS64.sys

Also delete these Creative video camera drivers:
OEM03Vid.sys Wed Apr 25 09:42:48 2007 (462F0678)
OEM03Vfx.sys Mon Mar 05 11:55:47 2007 (45EBF733)

Done. Just out of curiousity, what problems can those cause if not deleted? Was one of them cited in a crash?

The next time i restarted my machine, it said I didn't have an audio device, and I get no sound or mic (did have a mic in an integrated webcam in-monitor). I put the drivers back in the folder, but it didn't help. Any idea what's going on? and things are back to normal.

I think these are drivers still in use. The OEM ones are for the integrated webcam and mic in my monitor, and LVUSBS64 is something to do with my audio. Did you perhaps mean LV302V64.sys? It looks like that is for a Logitech webcam.

No, lets wait it out now first and see if your system is stable? if not upload the whole thing again...
We need to do one thing at a time anyway to establish what really fixed the problem in the end...

Ok, I'm going to mark this as solved again for the moment, as I haven't had any crashes in a week. The curious thing is that I didn't do anything permanent to fix it. I deleted the three files you mentioned, but then I didn't get audio or webcam functionality, so I just restored the files right back where they were. I tested my graphics card, but it tested fine and I made no changes. The only change I made of any substance was to uninstall Firefox.

I guess it will remain a mystery unless my machine acts up again. Thanks for all the time spent helping me and everyone else on this forum.

My pleasure! Did you put the exact same drivers back or did you let it install new?
