Hi, orry if this is what everyone asks in here but would someone be able to look through my minidumps for me? I've been trying to learn how to do it myself but my computer BSODs before I have a chance to get very far.

Starting with the latest (I think):

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30713/Minidumps/070711-36114-01.dmp
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30713/Minidumps/070711-20592-01.dmp
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30713/Minidumps/070611-35755-01.dmp
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30713/Minidumps/070511-42463-01.dmp

This has only started within the past few days and has seemed to get progressively worse. I tried running a memory test due to some RAM I installed a while ago and disabled my wireless card as I changed that about six weeks ago. Still crashing even in safe mode, though that just gives me something about how Windows has encountered a critical error and has to shut down in one minute. BSODs include PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, BAD_POOL_HEADER and something about Windows and a critical area (or something) amongst others.

Any clues from the minidumps would be a big help, cheers.

Thanks, I'll do that.

Quick thing while I'm posting. I had a look at the dumps when I got to work and they're all different though the consistency seems to be either a driver corruption or a memory corruption, every dump has also contained the line:

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT

I'll follow those instructions when I get home but I just thought I'd leave this here. I've pulled out the only piece of hardware (that would require a driver) I've installed in the past 9 months and it didn't fix it.

Thanks.

I haven't downloaded the dumps that you uploaded to DropBox because I'm traveling right now. I'll be home tomorrow night and will get online as soon as we pickup the dogs from the kennel.

Don't place too much emphasis on the DRIVER_FAULT thing - it can still be hardware. In my case, I start with looking at the perfmon report, then the memory dumps, then the systeminfo report, then the MSINIFO32 report. If necessary, I then look at the System and Application Event Viewer Log files.
