Hi guys I've been getting random bluescreens recently and they are getting more and more prevalent. I need to figure it out because I don't want to be in the middle of a paper and have my machine shut off on me. Here is the windows version of the details:

I've also seen other people post their minidump files using skydrive in order to help understand the problem. I'm not sure what that is but I'll try if you need it.

The usual culprit when that happens, is the memory. Not always, but a goodly portion of the time. Run Memtest on each stick of RAM individually in the first slot for at least 1 full pass. If any errors show up, the stick is defective.
