Looks like I need to buy it for real, since the trial was only good for one run. I don't mind buying the Basic edition, since it's only $7, but I want to make sure that that will have the functions I need?

When he says "when the temperature maxes out", what value would this be? I only ask because on the Furmark site, there's a picture of a GFX card which has been burnt out by the program, and given that I might have to take this one back I'd rather not damage it even more.

Use Speedfan to test your GPU temps.

I ran it for around 5 minutes, and my temperature got 77C. It didn't seem to have any problems rendering the furry doughnut.

I'm not sure if I did the right thing; I can do it again if need be.

Ok my brother got another BSOD yesterday, this time while browsing on Facebook. I've attached the crash dump file, while this is what WhosCrashed says about it...

------------------
On Fri 14/05/2010 21:00:15 your computer crashed
This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF80002DA90F3, 0xFFFFF880077E5A70, 0x0)
Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
Dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\051410-18704-01.dmp
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect, possibly the culprit is in another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

I've just tried MemTest just to check my RAM.

I got 9 errors after just 3% of testing. I think I've found my problem.

So do I.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Multiple random BSODs associated with ntoskrnl.exe
Seems to happen randomly with no real triggers apart from use of the computer. If I leave the PC alone it will crash eventually without me doing anything. If I am using it, it will crash much quicker (and time till crash seems to be inversely proportional to how much I'm doing). It's happened...
