Windows 7: BSOD after switching motherboards

BSOD after switching motherboards

I recently upgraded my computer. Since, I have had frequent BSOD episodes. They were very frequent and after doing some research, I went to look for my minidump files. Finding the folder empty, I backtracked and realized I had turned off page filing due to having a SSD. After turning that back on, the BSOD episodes have reduced to one every couple of days. Go figure...

Anyway, here's my info:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did try driver verifier after reading that on another post. I unclicked all of Microsoft drivers as that post instructed. The result was a computer speed that reminded me of my first IBM 8086. I turned that off as fast as I could...

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Thanks for your quick response. That was the exact post I referenced about driver verifier. I followed those instructions to a tee and my system slowed down to turtle underdrive. It reminded me of my old 8086 IBM. I'd turn it on in the morning and then go get ready for work. With any luck, it would have booted up to the C: prompt by the time I was ready to leave the house... Am I doing something wrong?

Did you do a clean install of Windows 7 after the motherboard upgrade?

No - I've got programs from the dark ages that I still use - no way to recover the install disks on some of them. I deleted the drivers before the swap, changed the hardware and reinstalled the new drivers as the devices were discovered. Funny enough, the only program that is running when the BSOD occurs is Windows Explorer. I did do a reinstallation of that program with no change.

Does anyone believe this could be caused by an underpowered PSU? I used the Newegg tool to determine the size, but 450 seemed a little low to me.

While the Rosewill PSU seems to be a good one, 450W in the minimum recommended for your GPU. I would suggest a quality PSU in the 650W-750W range to make sure you have a good supply of reliable power.
