Frequent BSOD at random times recently.

Hi , few days ago i got a blue screen , probably the first one in about 2 years since i've had this computer.
I chose to ignore it as its the first time it happened and i hoped it wouldn't happen again.
I came home 2 days after , and in 1 evening i got around 4 BSODs.
Some BSODs occured while i was playing games , and they would happen with some lines appearing on the screen for a few seconds and the computer freezing , and then i would get the BSOD.
I thought it was something GPU related , probably driver related , so i reinstalled the drivers and all , but nothing happened as they still occur.

I attached the SF Diag Tool info.

I would be very thankful for any help.

Hello,

Code:
Probably caused by : dtsoftbus01.sys ( dtsoftbus01+1300 )
This driver is related to Daemon Tools. DT is known to cause problems with windows, including BSODs. Please uninstall completely.

Code:
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID:  VERIFIER_ENABLED_VISTA_MINIDUMP
Please disable Driver verifier for troubleshooting purposes: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Code:
Probably caused by : memory_corruption
4 of your dump files are blaming memory. So run a RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Afterwards please post back results.

Thanks for the swift response , and i'm sorry for not being to respond earlier , as i had some stuff to do , and the RAM tests took quite some time aswell.

I guess ill have to delete Daemon tools , although i've had it for probably 2 years now and it haven't caused any issues.

As of driver verifier , i've read about it on the forum , and tried enabling it , but after i rebooted i wasn't even able to boot the computer , as i would get a blue screen every time windows would start to load. And also i made a mistake by jumping into system recovery instead of just disabling it in safe mode , so it just restored to a previous pointed where those settings weren't made.

You said disable driver verifier .. Since it isn't enabled i guess , i get a "No settings were changed" message every time i do the disable tutorial.

I ran the mem tests for RAM , had over 7 passes with no errors reported and everything going fine.

This doesn't mean it won't cause problems now.

Give it some time and wait for another BSOD. I think it's because I'm tired, so I can't really see any other problems from the crash files right now. But I will keep looking and post back.

Ok , I've deleted it completely and I'll respond again when (and if) the BSOD occurs.
Thanks a lot for the help so far.

I just got the BSOD again , after it was working fine for some time...
Is there anything else that could be the problem , and that i could try to fix?
Otherwise i guess ill try reinstalling windows , hopefully that will fix it if nothing else does...

Post up new crash files. This way we can figure out what else it could be.

BSOD at random times. Recently driver power state failure
Random system restarts/BSOD. Sometimes it happens while the computer is in sleep mode, sometimes it's while I'm actively using it, sometimes I'll just be reading something on the screen and the system is suddenly restarting. This has been happening for years now but has recently gotten worse.
