Today I had a BSOD out of nowhere. This is the second time its happened in the past cpl of weeks. I think the culprite might be the psu. I've done a /sfc scannow and nothing had to be repaired. all the hard drives except one are less than a year old and just about everything is less then 2 yrs old. dmp file attached. I hope.120318-24211-01.zip

Go to Accessories. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.

Type Verifier.

Select Create Standard Settings

Click on Next and select Automatically select all drivers..................

Let it run. This could take a while. Does it find any problem drivers.

As an option, you could go to Control Panel, Device Manager and check to see if any errors (black and yellow question mark) are shown.

I can't see any way to edit my original post so here is the zip file from using the dm log collector. I apparently uploaded my orig dump file instead of this. So i redid it today with no programs running.

Just for information, you're getting a memory management error. Has nothing to do with your power supply. It can be caused by your RAM but it can also be caused by driver problems. I thought we'd look at the drivers first. Doesn't seem to be an issue.

Follow the instructions here-

Memory Diagnostics Tool

Since the problem is random, I'm not sure if any of the tests will really see the cause.

thanx again for your help. i ran the memory tool and it said there were no errors detected but i only ran the default scan.
there's a good possibility it could be my protected power strip is old enuf its blowing out its fuse momentarily enuf to make it blue screen.

I'm guessing you're kidding in that last comment but given the random nature of your problem, we can't overlook anything.

I would let it go unless it becomes frequent enough that testing can narrow down the problem.

Maybe somebody else will have some ideas.

I asked him to run the verifier in Post 2, which he did and reported the results in Post 3.

That's not the result of driver verifier, the crash was not caused by driver verifier. In fact, driver verifier wasn't configured.

Code:
1: kd> !verifier
