Windows 7: Random BSODs (while playing games and ETC)

I had trouble finding my motherboard manual. I used a program called cpu-z or something like that to find out my motherboard make and model. All search results pointed me to laptop motherboards, and I found a post saying that foxconn no longer supports it and the manual is unavailable.

I was collecting information and by the time I started writing the post, you solved your own problem. Way to go!

Thanks, lol. Came with it's hassles though. I'm surprised I'm not finding clumps of ripped out hair next to my desk because of all the frustration.

So the BSODs didn't stop and it got to the point where it would crash before even starting up windows... so my new Acer desktop ships in 4-9 days. I just can't deal with my current computer anymore. Thank you everyone for the help.

You said you couldn't afford to replace the badly spec'd RAM but then bought a new PC instead?

It was bought using a best buy credit card that I avoid using because of its high interest rate. And it can only be used at best buy and all the ram I was finding there wasn't what I was looking for.

The past month or so I've been checking the Staples Clearance Boards inside their front door and regularly see a quality brand new laptop Dual/Quad/I3 with 4-8 gb RAM for $200-$300.

And there's no 30% finance charge you can't afford, just like you can't afford the RAM.

You should ask us first.

Random BSODs while playing games and browsing
Just recently started getting BSOD every time I try to do pretty much anything. I've had them while playing Civ 5, browsing on Chrome, while trying to install various programs. They are slightly random, but they will not happen if the computer is inactive. Thanks in advance for help.
