Windows 7: BSOD when running memory intensive apps

BSOD when running memory intensive apps

Hi, when running memory certain intensive applications like VLC (when watching videos) or uTorrent, I intermitentley get BSOD crashes (screen shot below), which can happen every 10 minutes to several hours apart.

Basic System Info:
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Service Pack 1
Full Retail Version
Original OS installed on my bootcamp partition
System is about 3 years old
The OS was recently installed (last two weeks or so) on the Hard Drive from an image file/backup of a year old build from a previous hard drive that was physically damaged/dropped but had otherwise been working fine.

Thanks in advance for any help/guidance

If you have time to spare I would test your ram with memtest86. If everything passes then report back but if you start getting errors then test each stick individually to narrow down which is/are bad.

Thanks, I started the memtest early this morning, when I left for work it was about halfway through the second pass with no errors so far, but I let it keep running and will post an update when I get home tonight.

I am going to assume you don't get any errors on your RAM. That is good news as it is most likely software. Are all your drivers updated?

It ran 8 passes and found no errors. As far as I can tell everything is up to date, I've had widows check for new drivers and double check most of the major components with their manufacturer websites. I know there's got to be a conflict somewhere but I don't now how to spot or find it.

I have narrowed this down a little more and it seems to only happen when I am downloading with utorrent, and I was downloading at the times the BSOD happened while I was watching video. I still however have no idea how to resolve the problem.

I figured out how to apply all the driver updates apple has for the system, which included new versions of the drivers writhziden recommended, but the next time i started downloading/uploading a torrent I got another blue screen. I've attached the new files and a new performance report. Also, I ran the system file checker and it did not find any errors.

Still points to a network device. Appears to be your nVidia Networking Controller Driver (nForce chipset driver) or your nVidia nForce System Management Controller (nVidia nForce chipset driver) which are outdated.

Thanks for all the help writhzide! I've installed the updated drivers, but the BSOD's are still happening, however instead of happening within five minutes of my starting a torrent, they now are happening after about thirty, so maybe part of the problem is fixed but at least some part of the problem is still there. I've attached a new set of dump files and a new performance report, and new thoughts or ideas would be most appreciated.
