I recently got a new computer (no more than 2 weeks ago) and as soon as I turned it on for the first time I had a BSOD. I tried restarting a couple of times, and it barely managed to get passed the first time setup (with my brand new and legal copy of windows 7 home premium 64bit)
Right, so I get into windows and hope everything is fine, but my gut feeling tells me otherwise. And with good reason. I tried installing CoD: Modern Warfare (yes, the old one) and when I was approximately halfway through the installation, BSOD again. The BSOD would occur also at other times, for example when the computer is left idle.
So, I called the firm whom I bought the computer from, and they asked me to send it in. So I did that. And today, I just recieved an e-mail saying that they could not re-create the BSOD, but they replaced the SSD and re-installed windows. They also mentioned that they believe that I get the BSOD because of my external hardware (My keyboard and my mouse). But I simply just can't believe that. So I called them and asked them if what they wrote was a mistake, but no.
I cannot supply you with extra information right now, but I will recieve the computer tomorrow. I just have a feeling that the problem isn't fixed yet. I will return to you tomorrow with extra information about the BSOD's and whatnot.
So my question is: Is it really true, that either my mouse or my keyboard is causing these very frustrating problems?

I forgot to mention that my keyboard is a Logitech Illuminated and my mouse is a Razer Naga (which according to my research CAN be the cause of the BSOD's, but none of the error codes I've seen is similar to the 0xF4 that I experience
