Looks like a videocard problem. Check if you have any crash dumps recorded in C:\Windows\Minidump.

Edit: also check in the event viewer (control panel -> administrative).

I bought this laptop last february 2010...

Due to BSODs I returned the unit to the Asus Service Center

Upon their initial findings, They arrived at a conclusion that my Hard Disk was the cause...

So they changed the hard disk...

After a week from service center,

BSODs came up again once or twice a month till last month

This month instead of BSODs, multicolored vertical bars came up...

*** Asus Service Center installed my WIN7 HOME PREMIUM freshly "not upgraded"****

Don't you think this laptop I bought from Amazon.com was a defective one?

**Attach below is the list of drivers***

It looks like a hardware issue. Or wrong BIOS settings. If you can easily reproduce this error, you can return the note to the Asus Service Center.

Additionally, here's what I suggest:

1. I would restore the initial system state from the backup partition, and it would be even better to reformat and clean install. Based on your Event Viewer numerous errors, your system files or the system's configuration may be corrupted. To find out, run cmd -> sfc /scannow and let it do the job.



2. Test your hardware:

1) for the hard drive, run hdd scan to see if it shows you any errors marked red:

2) for the video system, run furmark:

6. Watch for artifacts on the screen, and keep an eye on the temperature log. If you see artifacts, or the temperature levels out, stop the test.
3) for the memory, run memtest overnight as outlined here:

4) for the CPU:

These hardware tests will take you a while, but they may clarify for you and for the ASUS support the state of your PC.


3. Update drivers:

L1C62x86.sys 9/4/2009
Atheros L1c PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

SCDEmu.SYS 11/9/2009
PowerISO
