BSOD During routine pc usege

Hello, I had this kind of issue a long time ago now and solved by the fellow admins and mods. Now I started to have BSOD's again. I suspect one of my HDD's is going to die soon but just want to make sure what is wrong exactly. I am posting 2 reports which ever works out.

Thanks

Memory corruption probably by a driver.


Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data 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/Win7 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.

1st test passed. i have done this before but did it again just to make sure.
On the 2nd test blue crash screen i continuously pointed the same error from "Trusteer Rapport" software driver.
I removed this program now running normally. I know it is too early to conclude this problem so i will let it run and see.
Thanks for the support. I will post later if anything else happens.

Would help if you uploaded the verified dmp files.

Both of my Samsung SP504C 250G Hd's are dead. I bought them back in 2006 I guess they have concluded their life.
I have already moved all stuff to a new win7 installed HD.
Thanks again for the support.
