Random Lockups and BSOD events

Hello,
I have recently started experiencing lock ups and BSOD events. These occur during normal operations and I cannot identify a culprit that would be the cause.

Dell Precision M6500
Windows7 Ultimate 64bit
Processor: i7
Ram: 8gb
Age: 1 yr.

Thank You for any help,
Marc

Related to your AVG, iastor.sys and old drivers

I note you have AVG.

AVG can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S .
Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide


Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows


Update iastor.sys to newest (yours from 2009)

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Are you recommending I update the drivers that are listed?

How can I find a trusted supplier of these drivers?

Is there a method to determining the original supplier of the driver, what hardware is associated with what driver etc...?

Thanks
