However there were several references to the hard drive and file system too. I also need more specific hardware descriptions complete with Manufacturer and model numbers where possible. I know Dell rebrands everything, but they are usually made by someone else. I would like you to tell me if any of the components were added by you after you bought the machine. please add info about the PSU as well as the graphics card manufacturer and model number. This may help you.
Please fill out your System Specs

Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs


Please run Seatools for DOS ( SeaTools for DOS | Seagate ) and run the short test as well as the long test and run
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html.

If those pass without any issues please run memtest86+. These are the instructions.
Please Run Memtest86+

information   Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

Let us know how those tests work out for you.

Thanks for reply, I've tried all these and everything is fine, this PC is not mine it's a friends and the only thing replaced since bought was the the hard drive which was replaced in April, as I've tried everything I'm going to do a fresh install of Windows 7 and see how I get on with that, it might not fix the problem but it's my last resort. I'll let you know how it goes. Again thanks for reply much appreciated.

If you are going to do that, I may suggest you format the drive, install windows, install the chipset drivers and the Graphics divers, run all the Windows updates, install Microsoft security Essentials. Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows and nothing else and try it for a while. Once you are sure it is stable, install 1 program at a time and test for stability after each install. Once you see it is stable, install another program and test. Continue this way. It will take a lot longer, but if a program is causing the BSODs, you will know exactly which one.

Before the install, I would set bios to optimized defaults first.

Done all that, still updating as I type. I'm not putting too much on it anyway.

Put nothing on it as described above. That way you will know there are no drivers there which can cause a BSOD.

Nothing on it, it's updated now and running fine, I'll run it for a couple of days without anything to see what happens.
