Windows 7: Grey Screen of Death?

Grey Screen of Death?

Apologies in advance if this has been covered but I tried searching the site with no luck. New member and unfamiliar with the site procedures.

I am having problems with my computer freezing up for no apparent reason. After about five seconds of being non-responsive, it goes to a grey screen with somewhat slanted vertical lines. It can be something graphic intensive, processor extensive, all the way down to working on a simple word doc. It happens once every few days or so and it's just something I have never seen before. It is a hard crash and on re-boot, occasionally I get a 'start-up repair' prompt but in most cases, it's the usual options to 'start in safe mode', 'start normally', etc.

On a google search, this seems to be a somewhat common problem with drivers for AMD Radeon GPU's. I have also seen it suggested as a RAM problem. But while I do have a x64 AMD, my GPU is a Nvidia 7150m/630n integrated GPU/Mobo. And my memtest passes with no issues.

I am hoping it will be a simple driver issue. But knowing my luck......

Any suggestions anyone can offer would be great! Thanks in advance. And fantastic forum!!

Thank you for the quick response and link, ttran. Unfortunately I had just done clean up or temp files but the attachment has the two most recent occurrences.

I really appreciate this. I don't have VS nor debugging tools on my machine and even if I did, I've never used them. Any help you can provide would be great. I am just hoping they both contain the correct error. I don't recall any other BSOD's(or rather GSOD's) for quite some time. But my daughters do use the machine.

Please let me know if I need to provide anything further and I will do my best to provide. I will also be certain to post any further instances as they occur. Thanks again>
