Windows 7: BSOD when system is under heavy workload

BSOD when system is under heavy workload

Most of the time the system runs fine. The heavier the load the more likely the system will be to BSOD. There are also certain applications that I can run that will BSOD within a few minutes. Video conversion is one of them.

BlueScreenView points to two causes. 75% of the time it is hal.dll+12a3b, 20% of the time it is ntoskrnl.exe+75bc0 and 5% of the time it is randomly something else. I have let the memtestx86 utility run from a bootable CD for several hours and 2 complete passes with no errors.

I am stumped! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi krfuge.

Checked 4 of your latest BSODs. One is stop 0xA; two are stop 0x3B and one is stop 0x124.
So it gives a mixed impression overall.

Anyway, avast is contributing to the BSODs.

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

And the display driver, too.
