(The Windows 7 installation was on the HDD the laptop came with) · Age of system (hardware) - ~2 weeks · Age of OS installation - 3 or 4 days. I've installed Windows three times now on this SSD. After it BSODed the first time, I used the first reset option in Windows 8, that deletes all programs + resets all the settings. After the BSODs kept happening, I used the other option, that erases the SSD completely and then reinstalls Windows (installed off of a USB every time). · CPU - AMD E-450 · Video Card - in-built · MotherBoard - not sure · System Manufacturer - HP · Exact model number - HP Pavilion dm1-4108AU Other info: I've upgraded the RAM from 2GB to 4GB too. Initially I left both sticks in. After the first BSOD, I took out the 2GB one. After the BSODs kept happening, I ran Memtest86+ for 12 hours (4 passes, 0 errors). Windows 7 on the HDD never crashed, the BSODs only happened after I installed the SSD + Windows 8. I think they always start happening after 3-4 days of running completely error-free. The first couple happened immediately after waking from sleep, a couple happened after restarting, and it's happened once while installing Sandisk's SSD software (to check for drivers - there were none), and once when surfing the web. I've tested the RAM, I've updated the graphics drivers, and the Synaptic touchpad drivers. But the crashes seem really inconsistent - it hasn't happened while typing this. One time, it happened, then restarted, then crashed again, and Windows said it couldn't boot and had to system restore to a previous version. I think it's either the Windows 8 installation, the SSD, or some other unrelated drivers. I might try upgrading the old installation (on the HDD) to Windows 8, and see if it crashes, but I don't want to do that until someone with more knowledge has taken a look at these attached files. Oh, and all it ever says it SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, it's never been anything but that. Thanks.
