Windows 7: Multiple, assorted BSODs in 2 days...

I suspect that it updated to the latest driver available. If there is not a driver dated July 13, 2009 or later, it is not updated for Win 7. You might get by with the May 17, 2009 driver, which is a Vista driver. The 2008 driver will cause problems. You need to uninstall the Tages software associated with the 2008 driver. It is obsolete software not designed to run on Win 7. It will cause conflicts and crashes. It is like trying run a 1960's VW Beetle suspension on a new Ferrari; it ain't gonna work.

LOL!

I'm trying to look into a pattern here... BSODs usually creep up after around 9-10 hrs of continued computer use. Could that be an issue? I also have an nVidia GTX460 gpu and have a 520w Corsair PSU. I have read in other forums that i should be ok, but could it be voltage drops that's been causing the BSODs after a number of hours use? Is that even possible?

I suppose that is possible - nearly anything is possible with computers; but I don't see that as a very probably cause unless your PSU is going bad. I run my computer 24/7 and I haven't had a BSOD since January. Those in January were graphics card related and I got that problem solved.

If your BSOD's are caused by conflicts, they can happen anytime when the right combination of memory requests occur that conflict. It is possible for the conflict to be occurring and finally reaching the crash point - like pot of water finally reaching the boiling point. Keep in mind that Win 7 does not like obsolete third party drivers. These drivers were not engineered for the Win 7 OS. Win 7 is not an evolution from XP; it is a totally new OS.

Yeah. You're right. Thanks for the input. I'll be reformatting and reinstalling win 7 x64. Just installing the necessities for now or at least those apps with win 7 supported drivers and then observe for stability. Will check back if any BSODs shows up.

OK, but if you don't want to go through the hassle of reinstalling all of your apps, just uninstall the obsolete ones. Either way, let us know. We want to see you running smoothly.

As I was doing a clean install, I got a BSOD just as it came back from it's first restart and was just finishing up the install...

Does that mean that my BSODs are hardware related?

EDIT: Ouch! I tried to install again, I still got a BSOD right smack as it was completing the install.... hmmm... is it too consistent to be a hardware error? Could it be an installation disc error?

EDIT: I tried for a 3rd time, but I still got a BSOD! oh man... I can't even install Windows now? *sigh*

Yes, it can be hardware or a corrupt installation media. I will see if I can get one of the installation guys involved. In the meantime, you can try removing all but one RAM stick and see if you can complete the installation.

Whoa! That worked! So you mean Win 7 x64 & Vista x64 have the same problems during installation? I heard Vista x64 has problems installing if you have more than 2GB of RAM installed during installation.

Roundhouse,

To put your system on the level:

1. Go to the manufacturer's website. If you do not have the latest bios installed, then--download and install same.

2. Perform Step 1.

3. Perform a 100% clean install as explained in following link. Be sure to use the DiskPart CLEAN ALL command (and not simply CLEAN).
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

4. do NOT install any additional drivers,

5. do go to the MS update site and update your system.

6. Make a complete System Image backup of your system using the procedure given in following link:
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

7. Make a System Repair Disc. Using a computer without having a System Repair Disc is like driving a car without a spare tire.

Follow these directions for testing RAM. Particularly note Part 3: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Either that one stick you took out is bad, the motherboard slot is faulty, or you are using incompatible RAM.
