Windows 7: BSOD on Boot

BSOD on Boot

I've been getting BSODs on startup since I got this laptop (Sager NP8690) BUT it only happens if the laptop has been turned off for a long time, like overnight. After the BSOD on boot occurs, I hold the power button to force the laptop off and then boot again, start Windows normally, and it boots just fine. Once Windows loads properly I don't have any instability (*knocks on wood*).

It's happened with 3 different graphics card drivers, I've check my RAM, removed avast!, updated my wireless card drivers, disabled my wireless card, updated the BIOS, scanned Windows files for corruption, and probably other things I can't think of right now. The laptop has also been sent in for repair to Sager for another problem twice. Games/videos gave me graphics artifacts and the first time they replaced the LCD cable, the second they replaced the VGA cable. I think it's unrelated but they probably ran diagnostics on my hardware and made sure HDD, RAM, CPU, etc. were all functioning correctly.

Right now it is more of a nuisance than a real problem but I really don't want it to get worse.

Edit:

OEM
Laptop is only months old

These two were caused by memory corruption. What did you check your memory with and for how long?

I suggest you run memtest to test yours.
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

2- Also you have not completely removed avast.
Code:
aswSP.SYS    9/7/2010 9:52:07    0x4c865197    fffff880`01bbc000    f88339eb`01bdf000        0xf883416b00023000                    
aswTdi.SYS    9/7/2010 9:52:27    0x4c8651ab    fffff880`04399000    fffff880`043a9000        0x00010000
Please use this to do so.

I ran Windows RAM test and Memtest86 for 2 passes. I used the avast! clearing program just now and will begin Memtest86 again, thanks.

Another info dump. Several of the BSODs on startup did not generate a dump. Other times there was no header at all.
