Windows 7: BSOD on start up every 4 or 5 days - Toshiba laptop 3 mths old

BSOD on start up every 4 or 5 days - Toshiba laptop 3 mths old

Hi,
I get the BSOD on a Toshiba Tecra R950 Laptop and need help interpreting the dump file. I cannot recreate the blue screen at will. It only happens when I start the machine up some mornings.
I've read it will get worse so I should do something about it while I am still in warranty.
The shop where I bought it from says they can't fix unless they can replicate the problem. Is this true? I've attached the file.
I can't identify anything in connection with the BSOD that I am doing, except I do notice sometimes that when I am using an Altec Lansing speaker the sound fading in and out. But BSOD doesn't happen at these particular times though.

Many thanks
hkfish

Welcome

Set the system to collect Small memory dumps following Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup and grab all with the SF diagnostic tool when you get a BSOD again

Thanks koolkat77,
Do I have to perform a clean boot everyday? I don't get BSOD everyday.
Also, can I untick automatic restart as I won't know when I've had a BSOD otherwise?

No need for a clean boot everyday, the tutorial to troubleshooting applications at startup is just to identify which software is causing the BSOD at your start up.

Hi, I've finally got another BSOD. When I did a restart though it went into windows ok without doing a repair. Switched it off and on again and restarted ok with no 2nd BSOD.

I've attached another grab for your information. I don't think I can trouble shoot because I'm not getting a 2nd BSOD though.

Norton is causing the BSOD's for you. Please remove it using its removal tool from here: Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

We recommended Microsoft Security Essentials from a strict BSOD perspective. Is most compatible & provides most stability compared to other antivirus app/Internet Security Software.

Hi koolkat77,
I did all of the tests you've recommended except the RAM test. All is ok, I haven't got any errors that I could see. (I think Chkdsk corrected some things)
I tried to do the RAM test but I can't get my system to boot from CD drive. I changed the boot priority in BIOS to ODD but it is still booting from HDD. I entered it and hit save and exit but it still won't boot from CD. Is there anything else I can do?
Thank you!
