    Well Steven, the best thing to do is to think about any programs you installed recently that might have caused this to start happening.

    And no, blue screen are supposed to be very rare in Windows 7. Only happened to me once because of the damn Starcraft 2 graphics bug.

    Did you currently update any drivers? Do you happen to have a creative sound card? Try reinstalling your drivers up to date and see if that changes anything.

    I do have a Creative Sound Card. I'll try to find some drivers for it. Thanks!

    Hm. Your most recent crash dumps complain about the usb hub driver. Do you have anything plugged into your USB ports right now? Try detaching any USB devices and see if the crashes continue.

    I also noticed that one crash dump complained about a Brother driver. If it's just a printer driver, or something that isn't important, try disabling it, and see if that alleviates the problem.

    EDIT: Whoops, I just realized that one of the crash dumps complains about an Nvidia driver. Update all of your Nvidia drivers, and see how that goes. I'm not entirely sure that will fix it, but it's worth a shot.

    Nvidia also installs USB drivers with their drivers, so I would say uninstall your current drivers then install the latest drivers from the nVidia site.

    I just got a bluescreen while watching a video. According to WhoCrashed, it was the cause of "ntkrnlpa.exe" I googled it up and it turns out that some people have had crashes due to this as well. Any idea what to do?
