Windows 7: Unexpected and Unexplainable BSODs

08 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Unexpected and Unexplainable BSODs

Hi There,

I've recently been getting BSODs while doing day to day tasks on my laptop (browsing internet, using messenger and listening to music on iTunes) but recently I've been getting BSODs at completely random times with no obvious trigger(s).

Attached are the usual files...

A general spec of my machine:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM
Model: Compaq CQ61

Hardware Age: 1 year (almost exactly!)
Current OS install age: 6 months (2nd install using OEM recovery CD, just for a 'spring clean')

This is the original OS that shipped with the machine!

Many Thanks

(Please note, the PERFMON report says I do not use any AV software. I'm not that naive and I use ESET Smart Security 4, and Windows definitely sees it, yet the report does not!)

Unexplainable very high memory usage
A picture is worth a thousand words: As you can see from the screenshots I have 4 GB of ram. My current opened processes use approximately 500 MB of that. Inexplicably, though, the memory in use is 1303 GB. What's using 700 MB?!?! ...
