Windows 7: On the point of dumping W7 HP 64 bit

Windows 7 HP 64 Bit
On the point of dumping W7 HP 64 bit

After 18 months just over, of Vista HP 32 bit. After reading the good reports from the people who tried the beta versions, I thought it would be nice to change to W7 HP 64 bit. Unfortunately I have had endless problems with this version.
Lockups and crashed but mainly blue screens. Amongs them are Memory management, page fault in non page area and kernel data inpage error.
I have the latest bios, the ATI graphics drivers are the latest for this version of windows ( I have tried other 64 bit versions to see if that would help, it didn't) also sound (X-Fi Extreme music)
Apart from the system specs listed below, what other information do I need to include for someone to be able to help me with this. Despite other peoples experiences with Vista, my installation worked perfectly from the day I installed it.
The Hard drive it is installed on is just over 18 months, I bought it to install Vista on and has been carefuly handled. So far I have tried 3 repair installations of W7 and 2 clean installs. I have used the startup repair, and the memory test facility to see if that could be the cause.
I would love to stay with this version of Windows, but for the sake of my sanity I might have to go back to Vista 32 bit, even with the loss of the extra ddr capacity.

The "dumps".

You'll almost certainly find lots of DMP files in \windows\minidump. If you copy the contents of that folder to another location on your machine, zip up the copy, and upload the zip archive here, somebody may be able to explain the reasons for your machine's crashes.

Windows 7 Pro 32bit

What HP model? I also have an HP 6735p that is just AWFUL with Win7, mostly with the Wireless Card. I've been running it with the latest Ubuntu release and the wireless is fine.

MS dumping IE
In January MS will concentrate all its browser development resources on Edge (for W10), IE will be retired. There was no announcement or statement from MS on Internet Explorer on W7. The assumption is that along with W7 itself, IE11 will continue in extended support until 2020. IE is not the...

Installation & Setup
1 HD Dumping MBR, the other just vanishes.
My setup is a 1TB SATA and a 320gb IDE, both Seagate. On occasion the IDE drive will "Vanish" from the post test. It will not show on the boot menu. This being weird enough, I thought perhaps the drive was old and was just on it's last leg. SO I re-installed Windows 7 on the SATA for main boot. The...
