Bluescreen and some problems

I installed Vista Ultimate x64 2 days ago and I'm getting frequent bluescreens with a message that says something like: "a program attempted to write on read-only memory" and "try to turn cacheing or shadowing off"... Anyone has an idea on this? I'm also getting frequent crashes on Firefox 3 and PES 2009. I just get a message that they stopped working. Are these connected in any way?
Thanks..

Hi. . .

There s/b mini kernel memory dump files left behind by the BSODs. If you gather them and some system info, I will gladly process the dumps to see what clues they hold.

The dumps s/b in \windows\munidump and have names similar to Mini110508-01.dmp - but you will need to copy them out to your documents folder before zipping them. Also, please run the following system reports as I will need system & driver information while going through the dump files:

Perfmon (Vista system health report):
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe above | select Run as Administrator | the cmd/DOS screen will appear - type the following:

perfmon /report

It will take 60 seconds to run and the output will appear in an IE7 browser. Please save as an HTM or HTML file - you'll see the default file extension when you go to save it (click on Page - top-right IE7 screen, save as, save file).

msinfo32
START | type msinfo32 & hit enter - save it as an NFO file (default)

Driverquery
Bring up an elevated command/"DOS" prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe above - under Programs | select Run as admin - copy/paste the two commands = 1 at a time into the DOS screen (to paste into DOS screen, right-click at top of DOS screen, select Edit, select paste - then hit enter if need be):

Code:
[B]driverquery /v  >  %temp%\drivers1.txt [/B]
Code:
[B]driverquery /si  >>  %temp%\drivers1.txt & start notepad %temp%\drivers1.txt [/B]
These 2 must be executed from the elevated admin cmd/DOS prompt as I described. When you paste the first in & hit enter, it may appear to hang momentarily - it is just gathereing information. When the 1st completes, enter the 2nd immediately. When it finishes, a notepad will appear withe the output of the 2 commands. Save it as a text file.

Zip up the perfmon HTM/L, minidumps, msinfo32 NFO file and the driver query text file and attach to your next post.

Any ? - please let me know.

Regards. . .

thanks for your reply man, but after some more errors and crashes I ran the Memory Diagnostics Tool and found memory problems as well so I'll be sending the machine back to the manufacturer to fix this properly.

Thanks again :)
