Many BSOD's, Bad Pool Caller, Memory Management, and freezing.

Hello, as my title suggests, I am getting lots of BSOD's and freezing, specifically, I've been getting Bad Pool Caller, Memory Management, Page Fault in Nonpaged area, reference by pointer, and system service exception just to name a few. These crashes and freezes happen at seemingly random times, and do not appear to be related to what I am doing, whether it be browsing the internet or gaming Here are the system specs, bought December 2010, it worked well for the first few months. Of course attracted below is the BSOD dump and system health report. Thanks for any help.

Many of these issues are being cause by your ati video card drivers and ati catalyst suite please update them from here:
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software make sure you put in all the right specs.
Also please run Memtest86 and test your ram following this tutorial:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
and last please check your disks by running chkdsk to check for any errors.

Hi cooltiger413,
I guess the problem with the BSODs should lie with some recent installation of software which has combination of Driver and Application.

You can try to list what were your recent installations and filter out which have the driver part attached to it.

Also on the note you can try out with VMWare.. In some cases with the VM Guest as Win 7 64 the computer hangs and crashes.. Just in case you can check the system behavior with the VMWare Off

Just updated the video card drivers, I will run Mem test 86 over night and report back then, as for new software, this has been going on for a while, I sent it back the manufacturer under the warranty twice, both times failing to fix the problem, so I can't really say I would know what new software may have caused it.

Just in case if you have captured the memory dump, if you can attach it, could help in knowing which driver is causing the havoc..
