Windows 7: BSOD twice in 24 hr period could be several things

BSOD twice in 24 hr period could be several things

So I'm kind of new at this; just got a new monitor yesterday and had to update software/driver to use the HDMI cable; Windows also installed several updates yesterday and then I also began using an online backup service yesterday which required some software as well.

Attached the full suite of logs here.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi hunttom.

The crash dump is not saying anything precisely. Though a stop 0x3B is usually either a failing device driver (mostly graphics driver) or failing memory. So ......

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, 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.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

I think that this is solved. I ran the memory test for a while and no errors there. I then uninstalled all of the software and related drivers for the video card and then reinstalled the software and drivers from the CD that came in the box. So far so good.

Thanks for the help.

Well, spoke too soon. I got another random BSOD today. I have now deleted ALL ATI Catalyst software and all seems to be going well (so far). Bootup is a little quicker and system seems a little more responsive in general.

The CCC (Catalyst Control Center) does cause many issues. It's best if you can live without it and use only the display driver.

Yes. Who knew replacing the old burned out monitor would be so complicated.

Who knew that going from a 22 inch (DVI-D input) to 24 inch (HDMI input) would be so complicated?

But yes, now that I have all of the CCC off it seems to be doing much better.
