BSOD Acer Aspire One - 722 BZ454

I've started to get a BSOD more regularly on my Acer Aspire One and I am not aware of having installed any new hardware or changing the figuration much. I recently reinstalled Windows 7 and reformatted in the hopes it would solve the problem, but I got a BSOD after booting up for the first time.

I have set the computer to create dump files, but it does not always make them, unfortunately. The first image is of the most recent blue screen since I reformatted, while I have also attached some other bsod screenshots from before I formatted. Attached is also information gleaned from SF Diagnostic Tool (although most of the options gave me an error when I attempted to run them). Thanks for all your help!

Hi assuruballit and Welcome to The Forum.

We really need to see the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

The .dmp files are located at C:\Windows\Minidump. Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.

Go to your C:\Windows\Minidump folder. Copy the .dmp files to a new folder on your desktop. Zip up that folder and attach to a post.

Please see: How to ask for help with a BSOD problem Following Method 2:
and run the SF Diagnostics Tool. Right click the SF Diag tool and select Run as Administrator before running. When the reports have been created, zip them up and attach to a post.

Download and run CPU-Z. Take screenshots**/snips of the CPU tab, Mainboard tab, Memory tab and all the slot #'s under the SPD tab.
Go to Post Reply, click on the Go Advanced button and attach the screenshots**/snips to your post for all the RAM experts to see by using the paper clip you will find on the top toolbar. Do not zip them up.
If screenshots, please crop.

When attaching dmp files, PLEASE put them in a single zipped folder

Thanks, I had previosly followed the steps to set up minidumps. Most of my BSOD's have been Kernel Inpage Errors which never left dump files, but hung on the "initializing disk for crash dump". This time I receive a Critical Object Termination and a crash dump was left.

Thanks again for the help!

(just receive another Kernel Inpage Error that hung after this as well).
