    I have uploaded the actual txt file to show that is all the info.

    I also got BSODed in the face again so ran DM log collector and have uploaded the new zip file.

    The error mentioned was critical_process_died. Didn't mention a driver.

    what failed: dxgmms2.sys

    I'll try and get through some more of the scans / checks you suggested today.

    Could you upload a new zip please, there are a few things I need to know about the crash you mentioned.

    Here is the most up to date .zip.

    I also had another BSOD error:

    didn't list a driver.

    I have run DM log collector after the new error.

    What sort of thing are you looking for in the .zip out of interest?

    All kinds of problems that may be relevant, though they vary depending on what crash has occured.
    For example, with the 0x7A(Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error) it would be TDR errors or signs of a bad hard drive. A 0x7A is a crash that we see as an indicator of failure of HDD's/SSD's.
    A 0x7A means that data from the pagefile couldn't be transferred into the memory, usually due to I/O errors, sometimes because of a bad seated card (hence TDR errors).
    Going deeper in the I/O errors, the root cause of I/O errors vary a lot from a bad motherboard connection to the cabling, a not up to date system (Windows 7 mainly because of the service pack) to a file system corruption (usually resolved with a chkdsk /r).
    Other causes that are IME a little less occuring, or haven't yet occured, are the memory, virus infection (never seen it happening) and the BIOS.
    The second parameter, the status code, of the 0x7A crash gives almost everything away, when you're familiair with then it is basically some trying and you've found the problem.
    You may want to have a look at this site which provides all the information I've posted and more about the 0x7A bugcheck :)

    Back to the zip, I cannot find anything related to a BSOD,

    Hi Mate,

    Do you think I should get the connections / cards check to see if any are loose? I have a couple of mates who run an IT company so they'd be able to open the it up and check without frying / breaking anything. I haven't asked them about the BSOD issue yet as I prefer to work through it myself with some guidance and learn what is going on... knowledge is power etc.

    I was just about to run memtest86 and encountered a Pink SOD... I went into the BIOS to try and find the boot options... failed and came out (without saving any changes) and it did this

    I then had another BSOD CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED when I was trying to write this post the first time. Should CPD BSODs be showing up in the DM tool zips??

    All BSOD logs should be showing in the DM zip.

    Do you think I should get the connections / cards check to see if any are loose?
    Always a good idea :)
