Windows 7: BSOD problem

Only install the minimum and try it for a few weeks.

I said this already in the first post but I'll explain it in more detail: we have two computers in the house that were built at the same time with the exact same hardware, OS, software, everything. When this one started having BlackSOD problems I tried switching the main hard drive (the one Windows runs on) from this computer with the Windows drive from the other computer. The BlackSOD didn't move with the hard drive, it stayed with the original tower - I'm no expert, but doesn't that indicate that it's definitely a hardware issue?

If it were anything to do with Windows, drivers, corrupt files, programs installed or anything else like that it wouldn't continue to happen with a different hard drive. If I'm wrong please correct me, but that's my understanding - yet everywhere I go for help people keep just suggesting to try drivers and other software/Windows related things when as far as I can see it's a hardware issue.

That said, I've swapped most of the hardware so far (another benefit of having two identical PCs set up) including the RAM, the video card, the PSU, the hard drive, the monitors... by process of elmination I think I'm down to either the CPU or the motherboard. What I'm looking for here is some way to confirm that this is the case, and if so hopefully some way to differentiate which one is the problem so I can replace it. I don't really want to buy one (or both) and then find they're not the problem.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, I appreciate all the help everyone is giving. But I'm getting very frustrated by the whole thing

Or its a hardware/ software combination problem- maybe the CPU running your considerable complex setup can't cope for some reason- if you need all of it for the computer to useful then you can only junk your mobo (CPU is mounted on mobo?). If you can try it with a bit less maybe it will be fine. At least you can read your computer and kind of control it- mine is in Japanese and my Japanese wife shows the danger of a little knowledge and doesn't like changes.

As suggested, Windows 7 doesn't need a "registry program" or a "TuneUp Utility". Within seconds using a registry cleaner or TuneUp Utility, your computer will get corrupted files and unwanted programs/pop-ups, ads/etc...

So anything else I can try? Or do I just buy a new mobo and cpu?

Go to Event Viewer and look for the error codes about the black screen lock up.
It is best to copy all of the codes and info and post on your next reply.

The computer just crashed, so here's all errors listed from Event Viewer for the last hour:

Critical (1)

Kernel-Power
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Error (1)

Event Log
The previous system shutdown at 6:36:06 PM on ‎6/‎04/‎2011 was unexpected.

Warning (1)

DNS Client Events
Name resolution for the name ls2web.redmond.corp.microsoft.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.



The first two are expected since I rebooted via the power button. The third seems unrelated, there'll be a few entries of this sort every day with various different web addresses.

There's 270 items under "Information" and 63 under "Audit Success" so I didn't bother posting them for obvious reasons.

You can try these hardware tests:
- Memory test (possibilities could be bad RAM sticks or bad motherboard slot)
- http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html
- Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
