    I've been getting a BSOD for several months now. In the past it's been so sporadic, so I've never been able to identify specific actions that produce it the most. Based on a message in this forum, I went ahead and installed BlueScreenView and have found that about 80% of these crashes are caused by the ntoskrnl.exe driver. Of those 80% occurrences, 50% are caused by the ntoskrnl.exe+6a626 address.

    Most times I'll get the BSOD when coming out of "Stand By" mode. I've also run memtest86+ and it passed all tests. Most of the time I also have an external hard drive connected. I've also run Verifier, but was unable to produce a BSOD.

    Can someone could get me to the next sequence of things I should try to diagnose this issue? I appreciate it!
