Fault bucket 291195417, type 5

My Acer Aspire desktop comp is freezing up and the event log says Fault bucket 291195417, type 5, does anyone know what this means or how I can find out why the comp is freezing randomly. Recently did a clean install of Windows 7 HP on a new additional Sata drive, Vista is still on the C drive and I get the option to boot into either system when starting - if left it defaults to Win 7 on my K drive. When it freezes nothing will bring it back other than a hard re-start. 3 gb mem and it never did this on the same machine running Vista.

Regards

James

would try running a memory test.in your event viewer is there anything noted just before the fault bucket error that may give any clues?
