    Random BSoD usually occuring after having sat idle

    Hi Guys,

    I've been experiencing somewhat random BSoD and restarts. Since this new upgrade it seems to have increased somewhat, but have had issues with BS for some time. I DO realize Windows is not infallible, lol, so a BSoD every now and then is no real concern to me, however, when they occur daily, and sometimes multiple times like this morning (4x within a 45 minute span) I begin to get a bit concerned.
    I've used "whocrashed" and have had it suspect ntfs.sys 2x, dxgmms1.sys 1x, and ntoskrnl.exe 1x

    I know eventually I would figure this out on my own, but it will take me 100x longer than asking for help, seeing as I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to these things.

    Please let me know what you need and I'll gladly do my part!

    Thank you Sirs

    Thanks for the response koolkat77,

    I did everything on the list above, as well as changing the page file size from 0 to 1000mb on primary ssd and 512mb on the other 2 plus a larger one on the hdd. After doing that and all of the above, I didn't have a BSoD for a couple days, that is, until this morning.
    It happened about 5 minutes after cold boot, I was in internet explorer reading the news when all of a sudden.....BSoD
    I have attached the log files for you to take a look at when you have time.
    Thanks a bunch!

    Ok, so I updated the firmware for the evo 840, which has my O/S
    the other two vertex drives don't need the update as the newest is identical to the previous version which I have, as stated by the manufacturer. I'll send you the new dump files *IF* I get anymore crashes....it shouldn't take long to find out if this fixed the problems
