Windows 7 Ultimate x64/Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64/Ubuntu 11.04

The dump points to memory corruption.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

Before we can begin to examine the underlying causes of your crash we need you to:

1-Update (or remove) this driver from 2007. Related to SFEP.sys Sony Firmware Extension Parser driver.

2-remove and replace Norton.

Symantec is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

3-Update to SP-1

Please run the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT) and then update to SP-1

32 Bit

64 Bit

Now update to SP-1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

Your troubles are ALSO related to SFEP.sys Sony Firmware Extension Parser driver.

The requested page of kernel data could not be read in.
Typically caused by a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error.

I would suggest you do a Check Disk asap.
