I've been checking the forums all day for a solution, but none of it pertained to me. I've gotten this BSOD 3 times in the past week and haven't been able to pinpoint it. It happens randomly whether I'm playing a game or browsing the internet.

System Info:
windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601
windows dir: C:\Windows
Hardware: ASRock, Z77 Pro4
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz Intel586, level: 6

If I may ask, what exactly did all of those steps do?

It won't work.

That particular BSoD is caused by driver bugs. Disabling the page file will fix the symptom, but it will not address the underlying issue. The solution is to find the problematic driver and update it.

That's true! It didn't work. Most of the bluescreens did not have a specific error message. I did read 4 different messages and the messages without a reason.

Very frustating...

But thanks for your reply.

I had the same problem as the OP - BSOD, etc. Your solution worked perfectly for me and no blue screens for several weeks now.
