You need to run Small FFTs, In-place large FFTs, and the Blend test for 3-4 hours each.
Thanks mgorman87, now I understand. I'll start running those later today, so I suspect my post won't be here until Monday.

Were the screenies ok, in place of the .txt for the registry???

Well, the first screenshot was ok (and please set CrashDumpEnabled to 1 to get a kernel dump), but the second only got Session Manager - I asked for the Memory Management subkey under Session Manager - so we still need more.

do I just right click on CrashDumpEnabled -> Modify -> and where the blue 3 in box Value data, change it to 1 and leave Hexadecimal checked?

Yes - and note that 0 - 9 in decimal is the same as 0 - 9 in hexadecimal , so it doesn't matter which you choose. In looking at your memory management key, I see your paging file is set to 18418MB for min and max, as C:\pagefile.sys. Might want to set your system to no paging file, reboot, delete C:\pagefile.sys, and then reconfigure it to automatically managed, reboot again, and you should be good to go (not to mention there's no need for a paging file that large - a 1:! ratio should be sufficient, and that's what letting it be managed by Windows is going to use).

Once you've set your pagefile to none and rebooted, you can open an administrative cmd prompt and delete pagefile.sys after you remove the hidden and system atribute from the properties of the file in Windows explorer.

OMG, I'm sorry I did not understand that.

from cmd, right click, run as admin and at c:\windows\system32>delete pagefile.sys

is this what you mean?

and the rest of what you said, I haven't a clue.

the attached screenie is why the pagefile was set to 18418

Crash Dump enabled in regedit attached

I'm working on those three stress tests today although I don't think that's the problem.
