This sometimes happens with electronics. It is most infuriating we know.
There are times when we need to grit our teeth & persevere.
I have had my fair share of these "battles."{ one over the past few months with another manufacturer HP.} They can be won!

im going to try to get them to just give me a new one and demand an memory upgrade for the hassle but thats just wishful thinking.

I really need to know why i get the bsod to argue with them

ordered it from dell.com on nov 28 and got it on the 6th or 7th.

If I know why it happens I can tell them that the stuff they say is wrong or correct.

It seems Zone Alarm causing the problem.
Try to uninstall it completely and see if the problem persist.
Use this tools after uninstall ZA:

UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (7f)
This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
Else
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
Endif
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
Arg2: 0000000080050031

Crash Dump Analysis

Crash dump directory: C:\Windows\Minidump

Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.


On Thu 12/9/2010 6:12:38 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\120910-26364-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x70740)
Bugcheck code: 0x7F (0x8, 0x80050031, 0x6F8, 0xFFFFF80002E41EC0)
Error: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the Intel CPU generated a trap and the kernel failed to catch this trap.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.


On Thu 12/9/2010 6:12:38 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: aswtdi.sys (aswTdi+0x11A8)
Bugcheck code: 0x7F (0x8, 0x80050031, 0x6F8, 0xFFFFF80002E41EC0)

company: AVAST Software
description: avast! TDI Filter Driver
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the Intel CPU generated a trap and the kernel failed to catch this trap.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: aswtdi.sys (avast! TDI Filter Driver, AVAST Software).
Google query: aswtdi.sys AVAST Software UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP





--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

aswtdi.sys (avast! TDI Filter Driver, AVAST Software)

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.



funny how avast and zone alarm seem to be the reasons. Both run in the background when it happens and theyre suppose to help the computer, ironic.

Oh and additional to the bsod I have had similar situations were instead of it freezing up and going to the bsod it restarts itself.
