Use 32-bit. Obviously a driver issue.

Hi SuperV, welcome to the forums,

Was it running ok as just a fresh install? What software have you install recently as something incompatible may be effecting your system.

LOL baarod, beat me to it as always
Also, some hardware specs may be usefull too

I have more RAM than 4GB. And a 64-bit processor.

The crashes shouldn't happen in 64bit.

It's basically a fresh install

I don't have much installed, just AntiVir (avira), MSN, Steam and some other things. Nothing special.

You might want to check Device Manager and see if theres any generic drivers from Microsoft installed (particularly for things like chipset) as its always best to install the drivers direct from the manufacturer.
