Windows 7: PC freeze & horizontal stripes

PC freeze & horizontal stripes

Hello,
at random situations (especially when playing games or watching videos) my PC completely freezes and the screen shows horizontal stripes only. The mouse is still visible but I can't move it. I also have winXP installed on the same system (so I can switch between XP and 7) and the freeze does not happen on XP. As such I don't think it is a hardware problem but rather a driver problem (I'm updating AMD drivers frequently but it doesn't help)

You may also want to read this thread as the BSODs there happened at the same time so you can see what I already have tried.

Thank you for your help.

Hello noname mate perhaps you might check the drivers for 7 - for that card and maybe check out reinstalling the Catalyst Control Centre I am thinking because it is obviously ok for XP eh?

Instead of flying in the face of advice, how about you install a genuine copy of Windows? The ACER PID you have on your retail ASUS motherboard means your installation is counterfeit.

I'm not talking about reinstalling Windows, I'm talking about installing a genuine copy of Windows, yours is pirated.

Your Windows installation is counterfeit, it is not genuine. I'm not going to say it again, buy a legal, legitimate copy of Windows and install that.

You're now running a genuine copy of Windows?

If the problem persists then post updated information, if you experience any more BSODs upload the new logs.
