Windows 7: Windows 7 64 bit problem

Windows 7 64 bit problem

Hey all, please can someone help...

Im using Windows 7 64 bit and everything seems to be fine until I install software. Nothing happens straight away ie when im on the windows itself, its when I restart or shutdown that has a quick blue screen an restarts itself.

Installing anything such as Adobe reader, Microsoft office, .. Now on restarting it asks me to start in last known mode (whatever) or startup repair - recommended. So I do the startup repair and during that it asks me to do a system restore in which I do, well... damn! all what I installed previously has gone, and windows is working fine again! though if I install anything it does the same thing again.

Its now had 3 installs of windows over and over again with drivers etc...
I am lost to whats causing this trouble now.

All my software is for 64bit! if you ask, yes its up to date.

Please help! thanks.

Welcome,
I have a rather important question, not relating to your post directly. Did you buy the Windows 7 OS, which came with a 32 and 64 bit DVD? If so are you using both at the same time, in different computers. The wording of your post seems to indicate that may be the situation.

I would check you RAM with Memtest86+.
This sounds like a hardware problem.

Its brand new! and its doing this same thing on TWO computers, my older 1 and
the new one I only bought this week! ... so you see, its impossible its the RAM!
as its doing this exact same thing on both my computers

Edit: the RAM is Kingston 6gb DDR3 FYI. And windows 32bit works fine on
both the systems! the only reason im wanting to use the NEW 64bit is because ive
more RAM and want to use it.

Where did you mention before that it occured on two computers?

Any way, before it blue screens, type advanced system settings in the start search box.
Hit enter.
Then go to Startup and recovery and select settings.
Uncheck Automatically Restart under System failures.
This will let you see the blue screen and maybe find out what is causing it..

Where did you get the software from if it's doing the same thing on two computers and your installing from the same disk maybe you have a bad copy....

is it the same copy on all machines, cant you only activate 1 copy on 1 machine. i have heard 3 machines.. i maybe wrong.. also (just to add) just because its new ram dosnt mean its not faulty.. i know you said its on other machines. just felt i had to say that.. had the problem umpteen times.

ahh... did you update bios... is your board / boards compatible with 64 bit... just because it says it on the box x64... dont mean its compatible straight out the box, also is it a clean install of x64 , not an update of your x86 version... hope this helps..
