Windows 7: Constant WSOD

White Screen & Freezing Up Constantly

I see alot of people having the same problem as me, but I haven't come across a fix yet, wondering if anyone has any ideas on this one.

I'm constantly getting the semi-transparent white screen and freeze up when in firefox, or Catalyst Control Centre. Sometimes it will un-freeze in a few seconds, but most times I have to reboot. I have no yellow warnings in the device manager, did six passes with memtest and have no errors, just installed a new video card after uninstalling all old software and drivers, and it's still the same problem.

This is a clean OS install on a new Solid State Drive (firmware up to date), it ran great for the 1st month or so, now for a week or two, nothing but problems, running out of ideas here!...

Here's the answer I can't seem to find anywhere.

There is no 64 bit firefox, even if there was, there is no 64 bit flash player at all for any browser, there is a 64 bit internet explorer, but again, no 64 bit flash player, so you can run the 64 bit browser with no flash player (which is faster), but you have no flash player!! so no good.

You can apparently run a 32 bit browser on the 64 bit version of windows 7 with the flash player, but then you have the problems stated in the first post.

So really, I now regret buying windows 7 64 bit, I can't even run a stable flash player on it, so really, can't even do the simplest things without constant freezing white screens and hard restarts. But everything runs great without flash player installed, I must be missing something here, there is a 64 flash player in the works since last year, but still nothing!!

So how has everyone apparently been doing things on windows 7 64 bit with flash player installed on whichever browser 64 or 32 bit with no problems all this time it's been out? Again, I must be missing something here.

Constant WSOD

Hey all.
It started about a month after a clean install of Win 7 pro 64 bit, ran great for the month before that.
Since then I've made sure drivers are up to date, installed a new video card, removed the old drivers and software, installed the new drivers, numerous virus and spyware checks, manually adjusted my ram voltage and timings, removed a very small cpu overclock, deleted a second user account, uninstalled flash player and made sure to install it on firefox and internet explorer 32 bit., and still the same thing.
Before that, I installed a new SSD (firmware up to date), updated the bios, new ram (checked with 6 passes on mem86). All that worked great for the first month.
At a loss here, am considering going back to my old xp install I still have on another HDD, never game me problems, but this Win 7 has just been a big headache, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong here!
Help, please.

I haven't seen any instructions anywhere here on info to post for WSOD, just BSOD.

I thought this was the windows 7 help forum, but no replies in the 2 weeks I've been posting here trying to get help, I must be posting in the wrong forums altogether, seems like this is just a forum for posting your problems with windows 7 as a way to waste time when the os actually works. Wow.

Umm, there are FF builds that are x64. Maybe not the stable main version, but you can use these, or the nightlies. Or even this guys version.

Guess you weren't aware, but there has been a x64 version of Flash Player for x64 browsers out since September of last year. May not be completely stable yet, but has worked Ok for me and others.

There's also x64 Java.
