Windows 7: Hangs on 3D Apps and games

Windows 7 RC
 
 
Hangs on 3D Apps and games

This has been bugging me ever since I started using my computer again, and the 7 RC has been nicer about it than XP, but nonetheless, it's a hardware issue. I left my computer to sit for a good few months because it would freeze whenever anything Direct 3D would run... Then I found out my CPU fan was dying, so I replaced it, but the issue still hasn't improved. Even while running Picture Viewer or Google Earth, after a few minutes of use, the cursor will stay put, the harddrive light will turn off, and it just sits there with the same screen, hung. I've tried to do background reading, and people claim either a bad CPU, Video Card, or Power Supply (RAM has been tested multiple times, all passing)

Any ideas, tests, suggestions are very greatly appreciated, as almost a year of this is pushing me to the breaking point.

System Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Socket 939)
GeForce 6600GT (AGP)
Thermaltake 430W
2gb Mushkin RAM
Seagate 160GB HDD (IDE)
Lite-on DVD+-RW drive

First if you are getting blue screens (it says stop with somr numbers) go to c:\wondows\minidump, zip the dump file (*.dmp) and upload it to us. If no blue screen could you go into event viewer (type event in search) adn go to the win log, app tab. Look for any error that realtes to this problem

Windows 7 RC
 
 

On a few of the crashes, it reports an access violation (0xc0000005), but on others, has no bugcheck codes, just 0x0.

However, none of these crashes ever produce a blue screen.

Edit: After some more checking, I found I got a 0xC0000004 PRN_LIST_CORRUPT.
Then, after that, I underclocked my CPU from 2 GHz (1 GHz HT) down to 1.8 GHz (600 MHz HT), and it seemed to stop hanging most of the time. Guess my CPU is bad.

no cpu is fine. Your video card doesn't support directx 11 and thats what directx 7 installs very few video cards support 11 ati has a few not sure if geforce has any at all right now. Microsoft is trying to ignore this issue they know its the directx causeing all this but thats a lawsuit for telling people there computer could run 7. Which was no lie it does but you will hang and get driver kernal mode failure cause of directx 11.

What causes blue screen black screen green screen driver issues from the video card im surprised people don't sue them cause directx is tell your card to try do things it really isn't made to do and that can fry a card fast.
