i've been having a bluescreen randomly for the entire month of january. at first i thought it was due to a new game i was alpha testing (because it happened most often when that game was running, or after i had to force it to shut down (alt-f4 or killing the process in the task manager).
after working with the game's support to try and stop the bluescreens involved with the game and it not fixing the issue. i tried to do a system restore to before january (couldnt find my removable HD with the image) so i did a file backup(my documents, my pictures, my music) and a factory reset instead.
i havnt reinstalled the game i was alpha testing or most of the programs i had previously. but i just got another bluescreen
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

Locale ID: 4105
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7600

there isnt anything in specific that sets it off, on my end it feels random.
for example: it wasnt always while playing a game or afterwards. it did it before and after a driver update (before factory reset)
i had the internet disconnected when i did the factory reset and installed the suggested driver from AMD.

Did a Factory System Restore while disconnected from the network.
Updated the Video Card driver through AMD website using Recommended driver.
Will be doing the Memtest86 tonight when i go to bed.
EDIT: Memory test came out clear.
Anything else i can run to help figure this out would be appreciated. someone from the Acer forums suggested that it might be the video card crapping out. I've had this card for maybe a little over a year, would be a shame to replace it so quickly.
