Windows 7: Toshiba laptop randomly gets BSOD caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe

Toshiba laptop randomly gets BSOD caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe

My Laptop randomly got a BSOD a few days ago and it has continued since. The laptop is just over two years old. I tried a system restore but it didn't solve the problem. The BSOD happens no matter what I am doing and sometimes the laptop reboots or freezes instead. Safe mode works perfectly. I tried memtest86 which showed no errors and ran for five passes. Bluescreenview showed ntoskrnl.exe consistently in each dump report. Diagnostics in attachment below. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

Lets start with Driver verifier:
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

As the dump is indicating memory corruption test your memory using Memtest86 for 8 passes:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

I ran the Memtest86 for 8 passes and I got no errors.

I have also ran the seatools test which also passed.

I tried to update my Toshiba ODD but I couldn't find any update on the website you gave me or on Download Windows 7 drivers:

The bluescreen appeared twice today and it blamed ntfs.sys and win32.sys. I uploaded another diagnostic in case it might be useful.

Uninstall AVG (compulsory!) and install MSE.


Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Also, run chkdsk/F/R following method 2 of Disk Check
