    This is obviously a brand new system?

    Warranty? Support?

    Generally speaking (but not always) this is a "hardware" problem -- so the advice about heat and memory tests are most appropriate.

    If you have a "system restore" point that precedes the issue -- you might try it (it can be undone) -- some rare cases involve security wares not running properly.

    Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests.

    On Vista and Win7 you can run mdsched.exe -- once rebooted to the scanner press F1 for Advanced options and run the "extended" tests.

    Another, some think better, program that can be used on all operating systems is memtest86

    Speedfan can be used to monitor temps on most systems -- look for any rise of more than 35 c from a completely cold boot -- or any temp that is consistently above 70c


    Check the drive integrity. Uusually something like the free version of HDTune can be used to spot bad blocks and verify overall health >> http://www.hdtune.com/
