Windows 7: BSOD @ Random Times. Running SQL Server, could be related?

BSOD @ Random Times. Running SQL Server, could be related?

BSOD occurs randomly, sometimes 2-3 times a day, sometimes 2-3 times a week total. But generally always happens at least once per week. Been ongoing for over a year.

I upgraded all my RAM. I have run the MemTest86 and it reported good. The BSOD was occurring before and after that RAM upgrade.

I work in a 1 TB SQL Server constantly that resides on this machine. Heavy query use. 32 Giggadee-giggadee of RAM.

All Drivers are up-to-date that I can tell. I ran Verifier.exe as outlined, forced a BSOD, and have run the SF Diagnostic Tool and will attach that ZIP file in this thread.

Thank you in advance. If I wasn't bald already, I'd have pulled all my hair out by now.

Welcome aboard.

Do some disc checks.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (Skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Scan the system for possible virus infection.
If crashes occur even after doing those, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

BSODs at random, generally with Plex Media Server running
My hypothesis is that the BSODs I've been getting have something to do with Plex. They started about a month after I installed Plex, and have been happening irregularly since then. Here's the list of BSODs from the Event Viewer (if that isn't in the thing I uploaded, very nifty tool btw). ...
