    Hi I have been trying for a couple of days now to figure out the source of some BSODs that have occurred over the last week or so. It started when I was playing Dungeon Siege III, so I attributed it to the game being new, and just tolerated them. Now I ham getting them when i try and do some HD rendering with Sony Vegas Movie Studio. It doesn't happen all the time, but randomly on different clips and different parts of clips.

    Any help would be appreciated. Below are the CPU-Z screen shots, and the minidumps from my system. There doesn't seem to be any driver issue that I can see, blue screen view points to the ntoskrnl.exe, which is very generic. Not having any other symptoms of an ntoskrnl.exe issue..

    Thanks, Darin

    Memory corruption caused by a driver (vegasmoviestudio?) Please run these two tests

    Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

    Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

    Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

    Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.
