BSOD after laptop idle, local ID 1033

I am getting BSOD sometimes when I try to use my laptop after being idle for a whilw. Sometimes the BSOD occurs when working on the laptop.

I followed the instructions in post to collect and analyze the dump data. Attached are the results. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

These crashes were caused by memory management probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver Verifer

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise.
Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like.
From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

If you are using win 8 add these

- Concurrency Stress Test
- DDI compliance checking

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.
Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

windows 7 ultimate x32

I already used verifier and crached before I can log in to windows 7. THen it went tp repair and I was able to use recovery to an early point. I suspect this has to do with the video card because when crashing I don't get a blue screen but a whole screen with fuzzy horizontal lines at lower resolution. However ir is reported as BSOD. I found there is a problem reported and a hotfix in Microsoft for the ATI video card, but some of the diagnostic information not match exactly I'll try the memtest although I suspect that is not the problem. Also, I will run a live cd with linux to see if I get the error too so I can say is pure hardware related. Thanks for your respond, I'll post any finding, so it may someone in the future.

UPDATE on Toshiba BSOD

I ran memtest86 and got no error at all. I ran verifier following the above post instruction, and it crached somewhere in the middle of testing as the post said. Lucky I have windows restore on, so I was able to bring the OS back to an early configuration.

I suspect the issue is with the GPU, but I would like to to some testing to confirm that before replace it. Any suggestion?
