Windows 7: BSOD ????

BSOD ????

It amazes me to see how many members are getting the good old BSOD. I think in all the years of computing I can count my BSOD's on one hand?

DR

They were always around, but with today's more demanding software and less stringent quality control it appears there are more.

If you haven't had many I suspect you take good care of your system and it is taking good care of you.

I specialize in BSOD's and have no fear for my job security.

It is amazing. Like you, I have only had about seven that I can remember and that includes XP and Win 98. I did have two with Win 7 early on due to my bad graphics card. We had a thread in this in the VIP section not long ago. Here are the common reasons for BSOD's:

RAM (especially added ram)

Old Drivers

Overclocking

Users

Hardware

AV pre-installed and not removed completely

Firewalls

The users themselves

Carl I suppose I never over clock if I need faster I purchase faster. I have never tried to run Vista or Windows 7 on what should be an XP machine. When I first went to Vista I made sure I had all the comparable hardware for it before I even started, same with Windows 7. I suppose this is why I will still be using XP for a long time until that hardware gets replaced with Windows 7 standards

Likewise. I have an XP laptop and it will stay an XP laptop. I upgraded my old desktop to make it compatible and ready for Win 7, at least Win 7 32 bit. You would be surprised at the number of folks with older setups that didn't even run Windows Upgrade Advisor before they installed Win 7. And they compound the problem by loading obsolete software.

I'm with DirtRider, I can't remember the last time I had a BSOD, and its not a matter of luck, its good planning and the right setup for the right system, getting rid of any program that may possibly create problems.

Users are the biggest cause of BSOD's

After years of hassle free computing my newest build has been a pain in the ass and i have to say it's really down to the fact that i didnt put much thought into what i was buying- i bought components that went together without checking that they really went together
In the past i always put a bit of effort into it, having not had probelms before it didnt occur to me that i might do this time!
Been a bit of a learning curve this one i can tell you
