Windows 7: Sporadic BSOD, increased in frequency. Possibly SCB7000 Capture Card?

Sporadic BSOD, increased in frequency. Possibly SCB7000 Capture Card?

Hey guys,
I have a DVR system that records video from analog cameras using some capture cards from NUUO.
Specifically the 7000 series cards....
Anywho, before I go replacing the cards I'd like to make sure this isn't a software problem.
The machine worked for an entire day or two while recording, but then started rebooting constantly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Also, is there a guide somewhere that explains the process you guys go through to analyze these dumps?
I used to have WinDBG set up, and I could gain access to the information somewhat, but it always seemed to be less informative than what you guys can come up with here.
I'll keep on googling about it in the meantime though. =D

Oh yeah, system specs:
Windows 7 64 Embedded
Intel i7-3770
Installed on Western Digital Scorpio Blue 250GB 2.5" drive
2TB WD drive for storage (WD20EURS)
Foxconn B75M mobo
4 GB DDR3 Ram 1333
500W Silverstone PSU
Samsung DVD Burner

Hello jivex5k.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
If both the virus scans and memtest comes without any error, 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. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Thanks man!
Yup, it has some bad memory. I'm going to replace it to see if that fixes the issue.
At the rate it's been rebooting I should know by tomorrow if it fixes the issue, but I have faith!
