i keep having issues with my PC.. dunno what the problem is. Hope you can help me!
Recently i upgraded my PC (i5 750, Asus P7P55D LE, HD 5770). I kept my 330W PSU and harddrives. I did a clean install of Windows 7 and everything seemed to be fine. However, after a couple days, Windows 7 started and kept crashing. I had a hard time getting even into windows.
So i formated again, but same story - after a couple days it became very unstable. I even had graphical errors in Halflife 2 and Warcraft 3 kept crashing. Once it crashed, i kept on doing it continuously, like in a loop. Attached is a minidump 2 sequal crashes of Windows 7.
Somone already had a look at those 2 minidumps (thanks zigzag!):

So a couple days ago i decided to try XP 64bit. In the setup, it told me my harddrive was broken and i had to recrate the partition in order to get it to work (seems the Windows 7 setup did a pretty sloppy job on formating). This seemed to have fix the BSODs.
But then yesterday i tried to watch a yotube 1080p video... and guess what, looping BSODs....
I had memtest86+ running for 12 hours straight already with no errors. Also Prime95 ran for a couple hours; so did FurMark.
However, what i found out was that when i run memtest straight after a BSOD, so no switching off power, i get a quadrillion errors in the very first test!! But once power is switched off so that RAM is cleared, memtest runs fine for hours....
So question is: what causes the initial crash? Is the RAM the actual cause or just a symptom of something else going terribly wrong? Is it the Graphicscard causing this (becuase of graphical erros and crashed with 1080p)? Or is windows going crazy?
Really hope you can help me!!
Thanks a mill,
