Windows 7: BSOD: Major Issue, need to know what is causing it.

19 Oct 2010   #31

Windows 7 x64

Generally my manafacturer's website is awful because it does not list my model under the code in which I have for it (iMedia X2424) but yet has codes for model names such as PC0100 for exmaple, which link in no way to my machine yet looks the same via the picture they show.

I've been messing around with the computer more and after removing one stick of RAM, the computer seems to be not blue screening anymore! Wooo. However, instead of bluescreens now I occasionally have the computer completely freeze up without a blue screen and the only way I can then resolve this is by holding down the power button and rebooting. This usually happens when I open a high graphiced game. From what i've read up about this, it seems that most cases are due to the system overheating, however while having speedfan open, the tempratures do not rise too high before the computer seems to crash.

Also, I tried connecting my dual monitor setup back up (by connecting another monitor to the video card) and after doing so, crashes seem to come more often and two crashes in a row came before even being able to log on to the system (one whilst logging on and one during the 'Starting windows' screen during loadup).

If you could help me understand what this may be then I'd be grateful. Thanks for all your help so far.

Removing a stick of RAM and the BSOD's stopping tells me that you have a RAM problem. Since RAM errors did not show up with Memtest or Prime, my guess is incompatible RAM or a bad memory controller. This is strictly a guess on my part.The fact that you are having freezes could be related to RAM or to your graphics card. Based on what you posted, I have to lean toward the graphics card. But I am not a hardware expert by any stretch of the imagination.

Just to finally report back to this. It looks as though this was a motherboard problem. Recently bought a new motherboard after my computer was turning on but not doing it's usual 1 beep to say it's working. New motherboard and all my ram and video drivers are working.
