Since installing Windows 7 I have been having frequent BSODs (like every 2-3 minutes - I was trying to follow the instructions for requesting help with BSOD's but unfortunately the screen comes & goes so fast I cannot read the file locations for the DUMP File Locations!
I have removed all peripherals - only the mouse, kybd and screen remain - and it STILL dies! I changed Memory, changed HDs, disconnected the CD/DVD drive, the 3.5" drive and removed SW - still getting BSoD's.
I've tried to search for the Dump File but end up with another BSOD before I find anything. So I am unable to follow the insturctions for requesting help with BSODs - wish I could do as you ask...
I put another HD in loaded with XP and started having even more problems - the system no longer recognizes the 3.5" or CD/DVD Drive so the HDD is the only possibility to boot from - but it cannot find the files - then sometimes it finds them and boots normally for a little while then i get another BSOD. Sometimes it doesn't recognze the HDD - says there are no boot devices (I reattached the 3.5" and CD/DVD drives)
I'm ready to throw away my desktop and buy another! But I'll give you guys a chance.
I never had ANY problems with XP - it all started wth Windows 7. I am very frustrated with Windows 7 - no or poor drivers
for my photo quality HP printer, no driver
for a quality scanner from Epson - did MS ask if other companies would support the new OS?!
Maybe I'l go with a Apple after 30+ years with MS systems. Vista was crap, Windows 7 is only marginally better.... I feel I'm just throwing money away.
Not a happy camper in MS land...
