    I just recently got a new custom built computer. It has been working fine for about 4 weeks but now all of a sudden it just randomly BSODs.

    I can play Battlefield 3 on full settings for hours and it will not crash but it mainly seems to happen when i have a bunch of firefox tabs open. I did recently change my page file to be on my secondary drive as my primary is a solid state that is only 60gb and page file takes up alot of space.

    This is my last BlueScreen report. I don't know exactly know what I am looking at..haha

    I will post the 3 dmp files that i have in a RAR

    <link removed>

    Win 7 64 bit
    core I7 2600k
    Nvidia GTX 580
    16GB DDR3 Corsair RAM

    Oh i had no idea. Okay i did that now.

    Update: i just did a virus scan and i got this unusual message.

    E:\pagefile.sys
    [WARNING] The file could not be opened!
    E:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\terraria\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe
    [WARNING] The file could not be read!


    Why of all things would that be in the page file. I haven't even played terraria on this pc

    The pagefile is always in use. The other is an installer for .NET 4.0, so I have no idea why it would be blocked. Is it in Task Manager?

    Where are the dumps? Did you see the blue screen error and know the number?

    On Sat 2011-11-26 01:48:10 your computer crashed
    crash dump file: C:\windows\Minidump\112611-6396-01.dmp
    uptime: 00:48:17
    This was probably caused by the following module: win32k.sys (win32k+0x1BA2E8)
    Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF960001EA2E8, 0xFFFFF8800802B430, 0x0)
    Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
    file path: C:\windows\system32\win32k.sys
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: Multi-User Win32 Driver
    Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

    crash dump file: C:\windows\Minidump\112011-14118-01.dmp
    uptime: 00:26:09
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7CC40)
    Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x41790, 0xFFFFFA8008740200, 0xFFFF, 0x0)

    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System

    description: NT Kernel & System
    Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.

    Probably testing RAM would be a good idea.

    MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
    Roadkil's RAM Test
    Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)
    Memtest86

    If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

    If you are running Vista or 7, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

    mdsched.exe

    Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

    All the dumps are uninformative - they just reference the kernel. But this one indicates a driver:

    Where did your drivers come from? Are they all WHQL?

    Try the manufacturer's site.

    What do you mean "update Asus PC Suite"?

    All you should do is verify that your drivers are WHQL and that there are no updates on the Asus or computer maker's site. "Suites" of almost any kind can lead to trouble.
