GPU - GeForce GT540M 2Gb
OS - Windows 7 Premium 64 bit

Additional information:-

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 17417


Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 1e
BCP1: FFFFFFFFC0000005
BCP2: 0000000000000000

Sorry the single dump file contained in your attachments contained nothing of any real information.
Code:

I don't see any issues with drivers that are currently installed.
Can you adjust the Command Rate for your memory from 1T to 2T (depends on what your BIOS will allow, some laptops are very restricted).
Can you go here and install the latest BIOS update ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS N53SV (BIOS 215 2012.02.10 update)
If Blue Screens persist attach any new ones here in your thread.
Regards
Randy

Hi Randy,

I've managed to update to the latest BIOS. I'm sorry, but i can't figure out how to adjust the Command Rate for my memory. I've tried poking around in the BIOS but to no avail.

I'll be sure to upload new dumpfiles, should the BSODs persists.

Cheers

Hi everyone,

Second round of dump files. Crashed twice the past 3 days.

You've attached three dump files now. They are all unique
Code:
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: 0000000000000000, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: 0000000000000008, Parameter 0 of the exception
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Parameter 1 of the exception
Code:
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (1e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.

Arg3: 0000000000000008, Parameter 0 of the exception
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Parameter 1 of the exception
Code:
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffe4b404adaba8, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000008, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: ffffe4b404adaba8, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    address.
Arg4: 0000000000000007, (reserved)
But all three agree on one thing;
Code:
Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )
Normally this is where I would recommend running Driver Verifier. Unfortunately because under some rare circumstance the use of Driver Verifier can result in unexpected consequences you should probably only consider running it if you are relatively certain that you have the skill set to recover from a worse case scenario.
Please do some research and make sure you know how to run DV (how to start it and what to check) start by reading this reference Driver Verifier Settings (read it carefully) and probably just as important if not more how to stop running it.
Additionally you might want to perhaps first run a couple hardware test.
Check your hard drive with the native Check Disk utility. Launch an elevated command prompt and type chkdsk C: /R
Then check your system memory.
Download Memtest86+ from this location here. Burn the ISO to a CD and boot the computer from the CD from a cold boot after leaving it off for an hour or more.
Ideally let it run for at least 7 passes / 6-8 hours. If errors appear before that you can stop that particular test. Any time Memtest86+ reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad Mobo slot. Perform the test RAM sticks individually as well as all possible combinations. When you find a good one then test it in all slots. Post back with the results.
See this Guide to using Memtest 86+

I'll be sure to try it out. Thanks !!!

Sure. Keep us posted.
A second link regarding Driver Verifier which might also help. You can never have too much information.

Jeremy:
Please avoid using the site's PM system to ask questions. We like to keep everything discussed, concerning a particular issue, available publicly whenever possible.
To answer your question, yes most top tier HDD manufacturer's provide some type of proprietary hard disk diagnostic software which you can generally find on their website. These are normally used for diagnosing specific issues when pursuing warranty / RMA claims with the vendor. Determine which drive you have and check with the manufacturer. A list of some link locations can be obtained here Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
And as I mentioned above the native Check Disk Utility can also be used to supplement and augment your testing of the drive. From and elevated command prompt type
chkdsk C: /R
let it run all five stages and see what it produces in the way of information.

Randy

Hi Randy,

Sorry bout that, i had no idea.

Sadly before i had the time to do any of the testing that you advised, it decided to crash again. Once more i've uploaded my minidump files.

Thanks, again.

Cheers

I would say your best bet is to go here ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS N53SV and make sure that every driver for all your hardware is the latest available.
I see there is a BIOS revision update to v215 2012.02.10 from v214 10/8/2011 which may help.
But pay particular attention to any updates for your Chipset, Video, Audio and Network (wireless and wired). Also double check under utilities and others for ATKACPI driver and hotkey-related utilities, Intel Management Engine Interface, Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver and Keyboard Device Filter Utility.
You have one slightly older (pre-Windows 7 RTM) driver
ASMMAP64.sys 7/2/2009 which looks like a
Memory mapping Driver is a driver file from company ASUS belonging to product ATK Generic Function Service
, which I would think should be a bit more recent, but perhaps not.

Looking a little more deeply at the stack for the raw thread I see the following three third party drivers listed
