Windows 7: BSOD upon waking up Dell Inspiron 1525

Try running Prime95 from the moment the laptop wakes up; specifically the "Blend" test:

Ok, will try that in the morning, after waking laptop up.

Quick question: what is the max temp I should be looking at for this laptop (you mention shutting
it down if it begins to overheat during the tests)? Want to keep an eye out for that.

I actually thought from the beginning this may have been caused by heat and recently
I have not turned the laptop off for a few weeks using it full time while getting my other
system up and running. Had never seen the BSOD before upgrading these pc's.

Downloaded Speedfan and right now the laptop is running in the mid-40 degree range and has been on
since about 7:30 this morning.

I ran the test this morning after waking the laptop up. It looked to me like everything passed.
The temps got in the mid 70's, the high I saw was 77 on the cores. Temp was was about 72
and the HDD was about 36. I saw in the folder a results folder so I zipped it and attached it.
I ran the test for about 2.5 hours.

Looks like Prime95 passed okay. The only other thing I can think of at the moment is that there may be an incompatibility still between some lower-level driver and the OS. If the problem persists, I'd suggest reinstalling Vista to see what happens.
