Windows 7: BSOD - address ntoskrnl.exe

The only relevant document is the results file, and perhaps the stress.txt, as a guideline. However, "knowledge is yours"

If you are overclocking any hardware, STOP. Reset any changed values back to default.

As you may have read in the stress.txt document, the exact hardware component that is faulty is hard to find. Prime95 may tell us that your hardware is faulty but it may not tell us which hardware specifically is causing the problem.

Test your video card using Furmark. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat or artifacts appear on the screen.

The only "overclock" I did was when I changed the RAM frequency from 666 MHz to 800 (DDR 1333 to DDR 1600) and timing from 9-9-9-24 to 9-9-9-27. But the memory module is made for that frequency and timing and can withstand the "overclock". That is at least what Kingston says. I carefully checked that option before I made any changes because I am not a great fan of extremes in any case.
I have already ran the Furmark earlier today and the temps were OK. I spotted something that could be defined as an artifact but I waited for you to verify that. The picture is attached. Please pay attention to the upper right corner and a small square in the lower left corner (but a bit to the right).
P.S. I am aware that the picture is of somewhat bad quality but that is the best that I could make at that moment.

Hm, that looks like an artifact to me but I'll see if I can get someone more experienced with Furmark to verify that.

As for the RAM timings and frequency, set everything back to default. Even thought is may seem okay, it might not be. Think of it as a temporary test. If the BSOD's continue, you may be able to 'overclock' it again.

OK, I have returned everything to auto. Thank you for your advice so far and I am awaiting your further instructions.

Good night.

With the Furmark picture, could you recapture it using the snipping tool. You can follow the below tutorial if you don't know how.

Uploading and posting are not the problem at all. I have reached that level all right. The issue I am facing is capturing the screenshot with Furmark running in behind. First, it covered the whole screen and then I adjusted the resolution just to have the start orb free so I could start the snipping tool. Of course, Furmark, perhaps it is supposed to do that, makes all other applications and services, including the snipping tool, sooo slow or totally unresponsive, that it is almost impossible to make any screenshot of Furmark screen, let alone capture that short moment when the artifact appears. I would really appreciate if you, JaidynM, or some other guys here, could instruct me on how to do this. Just to add that I have set the maximum amount of shared memory (1 GB) available to the graphics card but it still does not work.
