This is not a good thing, a STOP 0x101 revolves around your CPU - and this is an error saying that it's timing out. What settings did you use when you were running Driver Verifier

If it was the settings that I suggested, then let's try a couple more settings:
- First, run the Driver Verifier against all non-Microsoft drivers. Leave it run for 36 hours (or the first Driver Verifier dump file that you get.
- Then, run it against all Microsoft drivers - letting it run 36 hours or until you get a crash dump
- Finally, run it against all drivers (it will get very slow!). Let it run 36 hours and we'll see what you get.

...What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)
Good luck!

hey guys

well, i'm attaching minidump crashes files from the last two days. i've sadly lost track of which files relate to what kind of driver verifier setting. i've tried all three of them though.

please have a look at them to see if you see something that might finally help me solve this problem, or just bring me to the conclusion that I have to send this computer back and get another one instead of it (after all, it's new and haden't had more than two problemless days with it).

thanks a lot.

It's either an issue with your video sub-system or with your storage sub-system (I suspect the video - but have no hard evidence for this).
Presuming that the BIOS is current, and that the drivers are all updated (only old one is Spyder3.sys), and that the inside the case conditions are OK (not overheating, adequate airflow, fans working, etc) - then I'd have to assume that this is a hardware issue.

Additionally the stringent testing with Driver Verfier doesn't reveal any pattern (other than the STOP 0x101 errors) - and that's usually symptomatic of a hardware failure. Send it back and let the manufacturer figure it out.

Here's the summary of the last 6 BSOD's:
