I've installed speedfan and I dunno what to do... How to check if something is out of order? I never messed with overclocking and BIOS. Also, I installed new drivers last night and problem doesn't seem to be solved... What to do now?

Test your RAM with this or get another video card
This issue is usually related to faulty RAM/GPU

Then its most likely your graphic card causing this error

If you are uncomfortable doing standard diagnostic procedures and installing and running the diagnostic programs then it may be a good idea to take the computer to a local shop that does repairs.

Otherwise you will end up just buying and replacing parts until you stumble upon the answer. If this will be your course of action then I agree with Yowanvista. Best guess: video card.

Have you been running W7 for 6 months on this computer?
Has anything changed (new hardware, new software) in the time frame that the troubles began?
