Windows 7: second BSOD on laptop after reinstall

If everything checks out with your RAM, there are other possible hardware tests we can run. Also, now that you cleared up the system file corruption, the crashes may stop pointing to that as the cause and my root out the true cause.

indeed, the question would be after lve done several passes and find nothing.. what tests should l run? very nearly to my 6th pass so far no errors, so if it does happen again and lm unable to post a bsod (as my settings have been verified for both minidumps and pagefile settings).

granted the question would be how long it takes for another bsod to appear but how to record it brings up questions if l still get the exact same errors.

With automatically restart upon system failure disabled, does the system still restart after a crash, or can you view the blue screen and post the error given from it? Perhaps take a picture with a digital camera?

not sure l have a camera thats good enough to take a picture of the full screen "if" and "when" it does happen again, the best l maybe able to offer is copying the codes unless l can take a picture of the codes and they come out well enough to be seen on an image. will try.

Temps are
CPU: 29C
motherboard: 39/40C (guess the reason l cant see a GPU temp is because its integrated which would make sense being a laptop)
hard drive: 39/40C

couldnt get fulmark to run so unable to burn-in test.. kept on giving me an error about resolution settings and full screen mode when l tried to run any kind of test.

these are the results from the GPU memory test:
Code:
Changing video mode to 640x480x16...OK
[18/03/2012 05:35:39] Test started for "Primary Display Driver (Mobile Intel(R) 4 

Series Express Chipset Family)"...
Trying 16bpp RGB:565 mode...OK
Trying 16bpp RGB:555 mode...NOT SUPPORTED (Code: 80004001)
Trying 16bpp BGR:565 mode...NOT SUPPORTED (Code: 80004001)
Trying 32bpp RGB:888 mode...OK
Trying 32bpp BGR:888 mode...NOT SUPPORTED (Code: 80004001)
[18/03/2012 05:37:36] Pass completed (0 errors found).
had primus running for quite a while now so far and temps under load are around 55/57c (tho l cant speak for any spikes while l was away) for the CPU motherboard supposedly says 62C according to speccy however my if my previous assumption is correct this would be partially attributed to the GPU being on-board other than that no real errors have been noted which l guess is a good thing.

How many passes of Memtest86+ did you run?

Also, would it be possible to get your RAM settings and configuration? Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

We won't be able to change any RAM settings since OEM computers and laptops disable these features of the BIOS, but it may shed some light on possible conflicts.

Are you still having crashes?

Settings look good, but what is in slot #2, #3, and #4 of the SPD tab?

there is no #3/4 (obviously since this board only has two slots, not that lve cracked that part of the outer casing to see)

here is the screen cap.

as of yet l havent had any more bsods, however l am sure lve had one since scan disk, l did however monitor temps while l was on skype earlier vid chatting with the girlfriend.. there was no real notable pushing of the hardware and l through temps were pretty reasonable considering.

If you have another crash, post back. We'll see if further steps are needed. I now have some idea of why you may continue to get crashes, but if you do not get another crash, it probably was just the hard disk errors causing previous crashes.
