Hi guys, recently I've been getting a blue screen of death...but it begins restarting my computer before I can read anything. Once I've logged back in I get a message from windows asking me to check for a solution but that doesn't do anything. I did get the following info from it though:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 7a
BCP1: FFFFF6FC500709C8
BCP2: FFFFFFFFC0000185
BCP3: 000000002CEC7880
BCP4: FFFFF8A00E139738
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 768_1

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\042910-22245-01.dmp
C:\Users\Gurps\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-96065-0.sysdata.xml


I have run scans using avast antivirus with the latest updates, aswell as spybot search and destroy and everything seems fine. The blue screen as happened 3 times in 2 days, both at seemingly random times.

I haven't knowingly installed any new drivers or anything.

My laptop is a Dell Studio 15, running 64 bit windows 7.

Most "BSOD" are hardware related.
What hardware and/or driver updates have you done?

As I said in my previous post, none.
Thanks for the quick reply.

I would run a memory test. You can create your own using third party software. MemTest86 is one of the most recommended. Dells, though, have a diagnostic built in, which includes running a test on the memory. The diagnostic facility can usually be accessed by tapping an F-something key during start up. Consult your documentation for how to access the diagnostic facility. It's also possible that running a complete diagnostic from there can also shed some more light on the problem.
