    I've been having a couple of blue screens per day on my Dell Inspiron 1720 notebook with the following specs:

    • C2D T8300 2.4Ghz

    • 4GB DDR2 RAM (2GB DDR2-667 originally installed + 2GB DDR2-800 recently upgraded)

    • OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD with Win 7 Ultimate x64 and WD Scorpio Black 320GB Secondary HDD, both recenlty installed

    I'm not really familiar with BSODs. When the computer automatically reboots after a BSOD, it displays the dialog box: "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" and beneath:

    Hoping someone could point me in the right direction as to why this is happening. I don't even know if it is a software or hardware issue. Thanks.
