My BSOD's started 3 weeks ago with a forced OS change, after i went from XP PRO x32 to Win 7 x64.
The machine has just had a hardware change(new Motherboard for DDR3 memory, the cooler was replaced). Reason, why i perpetrated this hardware change, was due to the high temperatures and lack of memory on the old motherboard, which i attributed to the BSOD's i was having then. Well i'm still getting these crashes, so something must be still wrong
. Usually the browser crash(es) occur(s), during watching a video on the web.
In addition to the BSOD's i also have these problems(which are actually new, since they didn't occur, when i had the old setup):
1)All browsers(haven't tried IE) crash chronically(the instruction at 0x referenced memory at 0x the memory could not be read).
2)Diablo 3 crashes randomly to desktop(intervals are very shaky), plus the picture freezes and recovers to normality in 5-10secs(Display driver
has stopped responding and has recovered).
3)Desktop Window Manager has stopped working (over & over).
Formatted the PC, because after running verifier.exe, i couldn't boot the machine up anymore, and i just wanted to try, if a clean install of drivers
would make any difference- it didn't. I've already tried older display drivers, but nothing seems to make any difference.
Used mdsched to chk my RAM, and windows determined some problems on one of the mem sticks, so i've removed that one, but i'm still having all of the problems mentioned here.
Perhaps some of the default drivers are outdated, if so, i need something to determine the proper problems. There is an abundance of different driver utilites out there, but which ones should i use, i have no idea.
