Windows 7: Win 7 Crashes Once per Month

Win 7 Crashes Once per Month

I keep getting a crash about once per month with seemingly nothing in common with any of them. This has happened since I first got this box back in Feb. Here are the last for crash reports. They happen in different modules, different times of day, different days of the month and I can't see anything specific running at the time of the crash, at least what I can see in the event viewer.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot would be appreciated.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

More info...

As you can tell in the dumps, they happen fairly randomly, usually when I'm not on the system. I've checked the logs and there are no other programs running that seem related to the timing of this problem.

Ntoskrnl and watch dog

Hello guys,

Aldo im new here.

I can say i might have found out the or a solution for the possible ntoskrnl.exe error / bsod.

I had a lot of problems too and it did occur once and awhile, well what i did was manually insert data in the bios.

Witch i like to point out that it mainly was for the cpu and memmory voltages, sofar i can tell that it works for now, im still testing sofar 1 week past without the ntoskrnl bsod, should knock it off tho.

Still carefull as most of you all know, cranking up voltages might occur in a burn in of youre hardware be warned.

Further more as you all know windows one thing 'might be fixed' and another will show up and im getting to the watchdog.sys file now.

Well what i read what that it seemed to be a driver for youre graphic card still its not even in the drivers list now thats a shock.

Otherwise it could be a error that youre ssd (in my case) or hdd aint formated in nfts well mine is, so for that maybe that cleared out too ?.

Other things that i picked up are that surten or all tv cards could cause it, or the software still since watchdog.sys also is a windows file, i dont think thats the possible cause.

Maybe the hardware then a possible chance that static electrisity may be also the cause, if so do you have a solution rubber screws or stickers or something

P.s my hardware is possible to see i think for the good order ill link the error / bsod log if its desired later on too keep this in a reasonable text format.

Thank you.
