I'm actually not on onboard,I'm still with my 8400. I haven't time to pull it out and try with onboard.

I think you should try the onboard first. Good advice by Jonathan.

If that doesn't fix it, there is one other thing I'd look at that I haven't seen mentioned here yet: your camera software from Vimicro products. The corresponding exe (vm305_sti.exe) seems to have caused some crashes and loads of warnings.

Also, take a look at MSE and make sure it is updated. I see 2 fake driver files (from MSE) where there should be only one.

Your Hardlock driver from Alladin is too old (2005). there is newer here: Aladdin Knowledge Systems: Support

These are the drivers for the camera, delete or check to make sure you've got a W7 compatible one:

As Jonathan already said, make sure you get rid of sptd.sys...

Hello Mvdb,thanks for posting.
Things that I done:
Updated driver for the camera. The latest that I found was from 2007(15.06.2007),and installed it.
Updated Hardlock driver with the latest from the web site.

For question about that 2 drivers from my camera. I don't found drivers compatibility with Windows 7. In folder downloaded with drivers there is only XP folder. It seems to be that XP drivers are running with Win 7.
I was made a seach on Google for that 2 drivers,and according to this usbVM305.sys there is no Windows 7 support.
Also for the vvftav.sys,there is no Win7 support.
Should I delete them ?

For the onboard chipset. I'll see if anything happen today(BSOD/random reboots),I'll go with onboard. If there are no problems,I'll wait out one more day.

Which RAM test?
Windows RAM test or memtest86+?
Try this tut: RAM - Test with Memtest86+


If SFC found errors and said it would fix them, you will usually need to run it a couple more times so it can fix all the errors. It usually takes more than once.

Yes,I'm testing memory with MemTest86+. And SFC said that some errors were found,but it successfully repaired them. If you need more info about that error,I can post here the CBS file.

What else can we do? We've tried everything driver-related; we are left with hardware. Most likely, the card itself is bad, but if that continues under the onboard graphics, we know there is something else happening.

I agree, but haven't seen the full results of memtest yet? Have 5-7 passes been finished?

+... before definitely blaming hw... I'd like to see a day or two in Safe mode /w networking. If it remains stable then... it might not be hw.

Hello guys. Tommorow(I mean today) I'll go with onboard graphic,and I'll see. For the memtest 2 passes have done,and no errors were found.
For running in safe mode with networking,I don't know about that...

I agree with Jon and Mvdb, switch to the onboard graphics and see how that runs.

But first, run memtest86+ for a full 7 passes. Best to let it run overnight while you sleep.
You can stop the test if you get any errors.
