Windows 7: BSOD occurring constantly and randomly!

I thought that we had solved it but the BSOD has shown it's head again this morning.

After the updates, I watched a webinar last night, used photoshop for an hour and had zero problems. I thought I'd leave the pc on over night on my desktop (switched off screen) to see if anything happened. When I checked this morning all seemed fine, I popped a SD card into the internal reader, double clicked on a folder and BSOD.

Uploaded the latest files!

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption

Followup: memory_corruption
---------
Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Also plan to update the BIOS.
Code:
BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. 6.12, 12/07/2010
Get the update from HP's website.

I've set up the Driver Verifier to run so will see how that behaves over 24 hours!

I looked through HP website, there is no BIOS update for my machine, apparently!?!?

A display driver update is needed. Apply the latest WHQL of nVidia display driver.
You may download it directly, from our forum link Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7; or you may opt for the Option 2 of Drivers- Download NVIDIA Drivers for “Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products” (it requires java installed).



During installation, go for advanced installation, install the display driver and the PHYSx driver only, and check the perform a clean install box.

Also update the Realtek High Definition Audio Function Driver, from Realtek

But what is most important that you use either the original 3 GB or the updated 8 GB of RAM.

If I opt to remove the 3gb of original ram, can I buy another kit from crucial to take it back up? The PC supports upto 16gb and I like the power of photoshop, lightroom, indesign etc?

I use 4 GB of RAM only, and it does not affect working with Adobe and Corel.
Tried Maxon, that also worked perfectly. Only Autodesk programs usually want more RAM.

A motherboard supports 16 BGs, that means you can use any amount upto 16 GBs. But I guess your 3 GB and 8 GB are mismatch.

At first you remove any of them, use the computer, see if it crashes there or not. Also observe if there is any performance issue or not.

Then if needed, you may do any addition, alteration, modification and replacement. But with the RAM compatible to each other and compatible with the motherboard.

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.

Ran Memtest86+ but no errors were detected; I've also tried updating a few drivers but so far nothing's worked. Sometimes I get the BSOD; other times my computer just restarts randomly. I don't remember installing anything recently that could be the cause of this. I run Windows 7 Home Premium...
