Windows 7: Bluescreening

Bluescreening

Hi Folks

So I bought a new system (well the parts, and assembled at home) and I am happy as anything, except I am bluescreening daily. I am using a version of Win7 64 bit I bought last year with a bunch of computer equipment, so it's an OEM version, home premium, 64 bit.
I am attaching a zip file with info.

my stats are
Intel i7 2600k CPU
EVGA GTX 590
16 gigs DDR3 ram
2 physical HD, both western digital, 2TB and 1Tb
750W Power supply
P8H67-M Pro

also worth mentioning that I am performing a minor overclock, via the AI Suite2 that came with the MBoard.

PLEEEEZ help.

Probably caused by memory corruption from a driver. I would run memtest to test your memory and driver verifier to find out what driver it is.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic

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.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Thanks zigzag
so i ran driver verifier...and it did something. I bluescreen right after entering windows as opposed to before when i would bluescreen maybe once per day.
I can get my windows back by booting to safe mode, and deleting verifier settings.
my question is, after running driver verifier as described in your post, what next? how do i tell which driver is causing the problem? (sorry for my total ignorance here)
