Windows 7: BSOD at random times, csrss.exe possible culprit

BSOD at random times, csrss.exe possible culprit

I just set up the debugger and had a look at the latest dmp file. It suggests csrss.exe has something to do with it. I read that this file can, on occasion, be a trojan, but VirusTotal gave it a clean bill of health. I also did a short HDD scan with Seatools and ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic last night, both of which passed.

So, here's the collected dmp files for your perusal. Hope on obvious cause jumps out at you.

Please test the HDD using Seatools.

Both SeaTools tests passed. Anything else I can try?

Just take another test, as a precaution. Then, depending on the result, we may need to go for some hardware related troubleshooting.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

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