Windows 7: Fairly random BSODing...

Fairly random BSODing...

Hey everybody,

I've been having some pretty random but frequent BSODs lately. I just installed TuneUp Utilities 2011 after having multiple BSODs within a few days, so if the .zip doesn't have many minidumps, it's most likely because of recent optimization I've done in an attempt to resolve this problem.

Regardless, I'm fairly inept with computers and am unsure of how to proceed from this point. I know that ntsokrnl.exe has been pinged several times as the STOP error cause, but it's also been a few others.

I've not been able to ascertain any sort of pattern in these BSODs other than the fact that they usually occur when I begin any sort of graphically-intense event, like utilizing Flash/Shockwave for YouTube or Flash games, or trying to play any games on Steam. However, I've also had my computer freeze and blue screen when simply surfing on Chrome, so I'm at a loss.

I've attached my .zip with the information that can hopefully allow someone to understand what is going on...I'm not sure at all if it's a driver issue or something hardware related. Thanks in advance for the help, guys!

EDIT: I neglected to mention that I've also noticed extremely high CPU usage (maintaining near 100% levels for long periods of time) and sluggish computer response, something I have never had in the past.

Not good, your crash dumps would be helpful.

As a general route,

1. Replace your current Antivirus with MSE
Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

Uninstall all other security systems other than MSE.


2. Update drivers.


3. Check your hardware settings - CPU and RAM.


If this sounds too general, then attach a little more information about your system:

1. DriverView: Loaded Windows Drivers List

2. hardware id:

- cpuz MEMORY tab
- cpuz CPU tab
- Passmark RAMMon HTML.zip

SSD on fairly old system
I have a reasonably old PC - Dell Studio 540 with quad core Q8200, 4 gigs of RAM and WD 640gig HDD - is it worth putting an SSD (thinking Samsung 830 256gig) in there? Thinking speed and stability. Also if it is, Norton Ghost that bad boy or clean install?
