This happened twice so far. I got lucky both times and was finally able to get Windows 7 to boot properly. When Windows 7 loaded, it said it recovered from a serious error and showed it was a blue screen type error. I unfortunately don't have the first Minidump file, but I have the second one. I already analyzed it with BlueScreen View and will post the log. If this is happening twice now, clearly something is wrong.

I did view the first Minidump file and got the same: Bug Check String : PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. I didn't save it and deleted it, thinking the first time the boot up failure was just a fluke.
I'd attach the Minidump file if I could. Maybe someone can tell me how. So what would be causing Windows 7 to not boot properly? Hardware failure? Faulty driver? How do I pinpoint the exact problem? Is it possible the Minidump file can be analyzed down to the point where it'll tell you the exact cause of failure?
I already plan on running Memtest86+ sometime soon. I guess it could help to mention the computer is brand new, not even two weeks old. The only additional hardware I have added was an Asus PCI Wireless Card.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
