Look in C:\Windows\minidump, see if there are any .dmp files there. If so zip them up and upload here so we can look at them.

For your own information, you can run BlueScreenView and see what it tells you.

The most recent dump is 1/30/2013:

KERNEL_LOG_FAILING_PROCESS: 
PROCESS_OBJECT: fffffa80085cbb30
IMAGE_NAME: wininit.exe
DEBUG_FLR_IMAGE_TIMESTAMP: 0
MODULE_NAME: wininit
FAULTING_MODULE: 0000000000000000
PROCESS_NAME: wininit.exe
EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at 0x%08lx referenced memory at 0x%08lx. The memory could not be %s.

wininit.exe is a Windows program so unlikely to be the cause. My first suspect is defective memory.

Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

You can do this on any computer that has a working CD Burner.

Boot the CD and run for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that. An overnight run is even better.

This problem appears due to problematic system files and settings. There is a tool called Windows Memory Diagnostic which conducts memory tests to identify RAM problem. Run the tool and check if that solves your problem. You can use a hotfix available online. Alternatively, the steps given below can be very useful for you. Follow them until your issue is completely fixed:

Run Windows Memory Diagnostic

1. Open the Start Screen.
2. Type Windows Memory Diagnostic.
3. Press ENTER.
4. Click Restart now and check for problems.


Use System Restore

1. Open the Start Screen.
2. Type System Restore.
3. Press ENTER.
4. Click Next, select a restore point and then continue the wizard.


Run System File Checker

1. Open the Start Screen.
2. Type Command Prompt.
3. Press ENTER.
4. Type SFC /SCANNOW in the window and press ENTER.
5. Restart your computer when you're done.

JohnSmith420, you are responding to a thread that has been dead for 9 months. Not many folks are going to be interested in it.
