Windows 7: Various BSODs every 20min

19 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Various BSODs every 20min

So, like the name says.

I recently bought an Alienware M17x with 2x nVidia Geoforce 260m (SLI), Intel Core 2 Quad q9000 @ 2.00ghz & an integrated nVidia Geoforce 9000 for low power. it also has 2x 500gb SATAs.

All that awesome in a mobile machine seems pretty good to me, and for the price paid, it was.....WAS.

What gets me is, is why a new machine would, every 20 to 30 minutes, get a BSOD. I have updated all my drivers, uninstalled McAfee (another forum found that to be a main cause), uninstalled Daemon Tools, did another manual update of all my drivers, did a chkdsk, and still it crashes on me

There are 3 major ones that all the updating has limited it to. these are "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION", "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" & "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"... There was another for "bcmwl664.sys", another for "nvlddmkm.sys" and a boot issue every now and then.

Any ideas?
