Windows 7: BSOD, might be becouse of drivers

BSOD, might be becouse of drivers


I last reinstalled my whole OS from windows 7 32bit into 64bit, and installed a super sweet gts250. now, for a whole while, there was nothing wrong with it. untill i went through my control panel, went into programs and features, and saw that for some unclear reason, it installed the drivers for 32bit. so i went to the nvidia site, and installed the latest drivers there. but instead of things going better, it only went slower. lag waves hit my games, or everything went slower.

i reinstalled my drivers like 3 times, but everytime, when i restarted the computer, or turned it off/on, it somehow got back to the old drivers.

so just a day ago, i deleted pretty much EVERYTHING that had to do with nvidia and its software, restarted computer, installed the new drivers and now everything seems okey. right? wrong -.-

for some reason, my computer first crashed using the old drivers under BSOD Memory_Management. instead of going away, it somehow changed into IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. i checked bios, everything is at factory value, i even mailed a computer specialist, he confirmed everything was at factory value and should be okey.

now, the blue screen crash doesnt happen after like 6 hours of the computer beeing turned on. its rather annoying, cause mostly i get em when im in the middle of a game.

anyway, out of the system logs, this is the info provided.

i just got a small interesting note from a friend of mine. since i did add 2x 2gb RAM memory, it might ave been a memory leak. ive changed it from 1066 to 887, maybe that was the problem all along XD

BSOD even after new drivers
I keep getting BSOD after several hours of use on my computer. I called customer service and they sent me drivers to install. I installed them, but I'm still blue screening. I'd rather not send my computer in because I'm currently in Israel and my only contact to home is through my computer.
