I have been getting random BSODs for quite some time now, usually once every couple of hours. They become more frequent when playing games. They don't seem to be triggered by a single event, one time the event will cause the crash, the next time it won't. For instance, one time I opened by dvd drive, and at the same time I got a BSOD. The next bootup it was fine. If I let the computer sit, it will not crash. But if I start to listen to music or try to access a file, it will randomly crash.

In addition, sometimes when booting I will receive a BSOD. It will load halfway into windows and then crash.

Vista Home Premium 64-bit
Core 2 Duo E6850
MSI P6N SLI Platinum
2 x 8800GT in SLI
X-Fi XtremeMusic
4GB (2x2GB) OCZ Fatal1ty DDR2-800
OCZ 700W SLI GameXStream
1TB Western Digital 7200rpm SATA

This problem has been getting extremely annoying as I cannot predict the next time it will occur. I replaced the hard drive and ram recently. The ram is not producing any errors.

I receive this "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message upon booting:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

Hi -

The info you posted shows a bugcheck = 0x7e = system thread threw an exception; the exception = 0xc0000005 = memory access violation.

Not much doubt here as to the cause of your BSOD situation - you are not updated with Vista Service Pack 1. Updating to SP1 must be the #1 priority or the BSOD frequency will increase rendering the system useless. You have older Vista drivers dating back as far as 2006 clashing with new 2009 drivers and program installations written with SP1 in mind.

Any particular reason for no SP1?

Regards. . .

I just reinstalled windows so I forgot to get SP1 installed. Thanks for the advice and welcoming to the forums. I'll be sure to install SP1 and check back if the problem persists. Again, thanks.
