Love to help but no dmp files in the upload, try this method.




To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Yes I only have 512MB of Memory. I wasn't for sure if Windows 7 would run on that much or not.

Windows 7 needs at the minimum 2gigs of memory.

Run that ^ and it will tell you if you can install 7 or not.

I installed 2 gigs of new memory and windows is still freezing up.
Any other suggestions? Would resetting the BIOS help?

Please upload a new report so we can see what is going on with your computer.

You can try resetting the BIOS. It wouldn't hurt anything as long as you do it correctly.

This is not a full report. All that's in there is a couple text files. Please follow the instructions from the link below on how to upload a jcgriff2 report.

Sorry about that. Here is the report. I could not get the system health report to work. When I typed it in the search box nothing came up?
