I upgraded to win7 from vista by buying a discounted copy online by using my student ID. I don't have any disk since it was a download. What can I do?

I'm sure I did but I can't find any information from when I upgraded. Is there anyway to retrieve it from the computer?

Yes, download and run Speccy. Click on the Operating System in the left hand menu and your key will be displayed in the information pane on the right hand side. Once you have this you can then back up your data and get ready for a clean install.

Ok I've got my key and we are almost done backing up all our data. How do I proceed from here?

Just introduce third party drivers and programs slowly one by one, making Restore Points before each one. Let us know how you get on.

Random BSOD shutdown and restart help please
My computer shuts off at random times for a split second before restarting. Would really appreciate it if someone can help me with it. I've uploaded the zip file for what was asked. The motherboard is brand new. I've ran a memtest on it a little while back and everything seemed to be fine.
