Windows crashes non stop

I got the Windows RC 7100 build. I got it to replace Vista because vista ran to slow on my system. I've been using it sense it's release and at first it ran fine.No problems. Now, more and more it start blue screening me to death when watching YouTube videos, watching movies on my PC, or trying to play my games. None of which it did at first. Now, it's also just locking up with a high pitch hum from the speakers and when I reboot,the system will freeze unless I hit reset twice. I've up dated everything. No clue now what can be causing it.Help would be super!

Any new hardware or updates? Codecs? Media apps?

A hard drive going bad can cause what you are describing too.

Can you upload your mini dump files from C:\Windows\Minidump so we can take a better look and see what's causing your blue screens.

Hi tony and welcome to seven forums

Could you go to c:\windows\minidump, zip the dump file (*.dmp) and upload it to us so we can debug it? If its not in minidump you can search for *.dmp. Let us know if you need help in uploading it

Is power supply enough for all you're doing? (400 watts)

As did mine, but it's only a 160 and 2 x 80... not like he's trying to run 3x1TB.

Imo, THE 400WATT is sufficient.
