Windows 7: Experienced my first BSOD on my new build while playing BF3

Experienced my first BSOD on my new build while playing BF3

Followed all instructions in BSOD posting.

Running retail Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 with all latest updates.

Age of system and OS is 3 months old.

Before the BSOD I've noticed symptoms whenever I play Battlefield 3. The system keeps asking me if I want to use Windows Basic Theme and said my system was out of memory, which I think is not possible since I have 2GB of video RAM and 8GB of system RAM.

I do not install anything unnecessary on my system other than things I need and know I will use. I run weekly full system images using Acronis TIH 2010 (build 7160)

Is there a way I can open and view the BSOD's error code? I forgot to take a picture when it BSOD'ed on me.

No bluescreens in your report

I see in your MSINFO that MagicTune isn't installed properly and that it is also crashing a lot. Whatever it is, either remove it or reinstall it properly.

Thank you, mgorman87, for the quick response.

As for hardware test no.3 I'm running a SSD and OCZ's latest Vertex 3 has been known to cause BSODs every once in awhile. I do have their latest firmware (2.15) installed and have gone BSOD free up till now (guess I spoke too soon back then on their forums). Could the SSD be the culprit?

I will run the recommended tests and check OCZ's forums and report back.

I'm looking at my Event Viewer and checking to see which apps are causing problems and I noticed this problem coming up a lot under Windows Logs -> System:
