Guys, with an answer from my last post, hopefully all those questions will be answered. I asked it because with the problems the new system is having, that is a very good possibility. And if my suspicions are correct, could be the root cause of his issues.

Yes think your right looks like an imported install on different hardware

Thanks for the replies.

I did not do a clean install of Windows 7. I believe I got the copy from Frys or Newegg.

Thats what I got when grabbed the mini dump file. I didn't have enough time to run the program from these forum before the computer BSOD's me.

Should I run Memtest or re-install Windows first?

This is important please answer this clearly

After you built your computer did you install a fresh copy of windows on your new hardware or did you just put a hard drive from your old computer or another machine in there because you have files that are years old in your logs and they should not be there!

I first build this computer around 3 years ago. It was a fresh install of windows then on all new hardware.

I recently had problems with it, and ended up replacing majority of the parts. The GPU, CPU, Mobo, PSU, and RAM were replaced. I kept using the case, SSD, HDD, Blu-ray, and hyrdo cooler from the rig.

Then that is probably your problem, did you run sysprep or anything before you moved to new hardware ?
Otherwise windows has installed and auto loaded software/drivers for old hardware then you matched it up with different kit it wont understand

You should do a clean install and see if your problems are solved. Reading between the lines of what you are saying, you did not do a clean install after the build. The old mini dump would not have bee there if you did. The most likely cause of your problems, at this point is you are trying to run new hardware on the drivers from the older hardware. It will never work. First, go to your motherboards web site and download all the latest drivers for your board and save them to a USB flash drive, Go to Nvidia's web site and download the correct drivers for your video card. After the install, let windows install all the updates it can find. Once they download drivers and you reboot, go back to Windows update and click, check for new updates. Keep doing this until it does not find anymore updates. Download and install Microsoft security essential's. I suspect you will have a different experience with your installation then. If you have any questions, ask we will be glad to answer them.
