related blue screen fatal crashes one to three times or more a day. The information of the blue screen is of little sense (as per Microsoft) and all I can suggest is it is driver related.
I have updated all my graphics drivers
(NVIDIA) as I thought that might be the problem. I am an experienced PC user, but not an experienced PC fixer. I am happy to sit and write down salient details of the next BSOD if someone would like to just suggest what are the salient bits ? When it is working, I like the Windows 7 interface, but I am far from happy that a PC which was always working fine with Windows XP is now crashing at random. Any tips greatly appreciated Keith (yes I will read the guides on BSOD)
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.
* 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.
