Use this to test RAM, not w7's built in test.
7 passes minimum.

RAM (memory):
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.

doing the vmt test now.. started it in continuous mode last night with only my laptop monitor and an external VGA. 4 tests thus far, no errors. I will let it do 20 tests and report back any errors. There must be a log I can send up here so I'll find it and send it once 20 tests are done. Then I'll do a mem test.

17 tests passes thus far and no errors. I wonder if having just the external smallish VGA connection will do the trick.

I think you can stop memtest now
Give the VGA a try and do your normal activities and test.

i let it go for 20 passes and had no errors so I stopped it. There is now just the laptop monitor and a VGA connected external monitor (small) and I have seen no BSOD. If this good behavior continues, I will switch my large screen to VGA and hook it back up since I like the big screen. If that action produces no BSOB after 2 or 3 days, I will mark this closed because it would seem that the fault lies with the HDMI output... I think that's a safe assumption

My laptop has been running since Friday when I unhooked the external VGA monitor. No externals are now set up and no BSOD.
