I've been here before with almost the same system as last time. This time I have a new GPU, and I swapped because I had a BSOD-free month or so and so I didn't think it would be a problem as I thought my "home cures" had worked. So I reinstalled windows to clean my computer from trash programs and such as I hadn't been too careful the latest month of what I downloaded and such. And guess what? On my new installation of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium OEM (I have a disc. But it's really a OEM license that I haven't registered, due to the bluescreens. I prolly wont until they are completely gone), with Service Pack 1 installed (I didn't have that on the install before because I hadn't registered so it classed me as illegal. But I have my cd-key here ready to register as soon as I feel confident about it) and all other fixes they would want me to install.
After that I reboot and then install my drivers
for the GeForce 285 I had put in there that replaced my old GeForce 220. I reboot once again and starts playing a game after I installed one. I think it was GTA IV if that matters.
I get a bluescreen after playing for like an hour or so. Then they came more commonly and now I can't bare it anymore. I can't even play Magicka in windowed mode without getting a bluescreen.
I have some dumps bundled up and some of them are not from playing any games either. I can run programs like Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 and I can sometimes get a bluescreen, though rarely.
I now get BSOD's every time I play a game or do something that pushes the computer a bit.
People blame the motherboard. And I do too. But can anybody read the dumps and tell me if that's the case by your experience? Last time it gave me errors of a bunch of different stuff so you could not pin down a reason.
The system is as follows:
Asus P6X58D Premium
Intel i7 920 2.67 Ghz
RAM: can't remember their names but it's 3 times 2 Gb
Seagate Barracuda 1 Tb
I have taken of the side of the computer to allow more air to get there as the chassis does not have adequate airflow.
