Let me know for any BSOD by uploading a new zip from DM Log Collector and some description of what happens

All updated, but with drivers back on, I still lock up within 3m of starting the game. Watching videos didn't drop me, but that can be random, too.

No BSODs, just quiet mysterious hangs. So... what's the best place to go from here?

Ran fine since last message except when I tried to run this specific game. Hung up but gave no useful information.

Since then, just been watching some YouTube videos and doing internetty stuff, running nothing intensive at all.

Just now, I opened up Skype and it immediately locked up, buuuuut it gave me a BSOD. Here's the information.

Sorry for delay in response.

Yeah, exactly what my 'system specs' say. I just used their utility to update me. It's not too major, but... maybe it'll fix it all!

Updated, tried running that game again.

Did not BSOD but just froze and had to restart.

Gotcha.

It's not really a 'performance' issue ("Computer runs too slow!" or "video not pretty enough") so much as a... broken issue. I'll throw a post over there, see if anybody has any ideas.

Thanks for the ideas.

A freeze is a performance issue
