Windows 7: Stable for a while, now crashing again (and often)

when you crash again upload the new dump file.

If you are bored in the meantime you can let memtest run over night. As you want 5 to 7 passes with it.

Will run memtest tonight (or try to). Kept crashing last night, and I've got too much work to do today to run it now. Here is the latest crash dump info though...

The latest one was a 3b bugcheck, but with a minidump it's almost impossible to say why. However, you still have spsys in there, meaning it's probably another memory-related issue. See my previous post in this thread for an explanation if you missed it, but at this point I'd strongly suggest not using this machine until you're sure the RAM is stable.

What if I HAVE to use the machine? I have to get work done and don't really have a choice not to use it. All work is backed up across the three internal drives and one external so if it crashes in the middle of something it's not a huge concern...just means I'll have to redo whatever it is I was doing from the last save point. Or by running it do I run a risk of messing up something bigtime?

I read your last reply but most of it was Greek to me. As I said, I'm not terribly tech savvy. This is a home-built system, but it was built by a good friend of mine who is actually good at this kind of stuff. It was rock solid stable on XP and when I upgraded to Windows 7 I've had issues left and right (had to change mobo and graphics card because neither were getting along with W7, and now memory issues).

If your data is backed up, you should be OK. That was (and is) always the worry.
