One last thing before we start test the memory, Can you check your bios is set up right, i.e no overclocking, memory timing, cpu speed etc

Thanks

I'm not familiar with this sort of thing at all. Can you point me in the right direction of a tutorial? I wouldn't know what i was looking at to know if my bios is set up correctly if you get what i mean.

Sorry to be a pain!

I Still think its memory, so we going to get the big guns out. We need to rule out the memory and this will find if the memory is faulty: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Make sure you read it and understand it

Thanks, Good Luck, See you on the other side

BSOD at seemingly random times. Often when web browsing/playing games.
Hi, I'm new to the forums as a poster, but often find solutions here (thank you). I've been having issues with my computer for a while now, it crashes at unpredictable times. I believe the crashes started about the same time I installed my current video card. Any advice would be much appreciated.
