Windows 7: White screen

White screen

Hello, I purchased 2 oem copies of Windows 7 and installed them both on seperate pcs, one was an upgrade and the other was a clean install. After 2 days the clean install was giving me white screen every 5 minutes or so and now after about 5 days the upgrade is now doing the same thing. Does anyone know what the problem is? Thankyou

Thanks for filling in the specs. could you open task manager (right-click takbar) and when you get a "white screen see how much ram is being used and by what?

Thanks
