Win 7 ultimate 32 bit
BSOD every 20 mins or so

Hi everyone,
I am a newbie to the forum and hope that someone might be able to help with my problem.
I am getting BSOD practically every 10-20 mins. the message is usually mxgmms.sys. I tried swapping graphics cards to no avail.
System is:-
Win 7 ultimate SP1 32bit
Intel i7 950@3.07Ghz
4Gb Ram
Intel SS 60Gb drive
Samsung 1Tb SATA
Nvidia GTX260

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thankyou

Welcome to the forum Mysterypete.

The first thing that I would do is to run in safe mode and see if the same occurs. If it doesn't then a driver would be my first guess.

The second thing to try is running msconfig and disable all startup items. If you are clean after this you can add them back a few at a time until you can identify the culprit. It's a long process but the best way.
