Windows 7: BSOD occurring seemingly randomly.

BSOD occurring seemingly randomly.

I can't think of any recent programs or updates I've downloaded that seem to be linked to this BSOD. As said in the subject it seems to be happening randomly. My laptop is normally very healthy, CPU runs very low, etc.

AVG is often a cause of BSOD-s, please uninstall it and replace with Microsoft security essentials at least to test.Run these tools and delete anything they find:ESET online scanner:Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

System Optimisers
Please remove the following software
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\AVG PC Tuneup 2011	Public:Start Menu\Programs\AVG PC Tuneup 2011	Public
Start Menu\Programs\AVG PC Tuneup 2011\Utilities	Public:Start Menu\Programs\AVG PC Tuneup 2011\Utilities	Public
This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

Run the System File Checker that scans the of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:Run Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Free up the start-up, nothing except the antivirus is usually needed:Install all updates, including service pack 1:
Code:
Version	6.1.7600 Build 7600
Check for a BIOS update:
Code:
BIOS Version/Date	Hewlett-Packard F.43, 7/9/2009
Let us know the results, good luck
