I provided you with two steps, which one are you talking about?

Good suggestions, follow LiquidSnak's advice and update your BIOS.


Just a couple questions.

Are you overclocking anything, RAM, CPU?

Is this the origional RAM that came with your computer?

Any problems, issues before the current problem?

Looks like a new graphics card, has the BSoDs started soon after the installation?

The error message was on the first step of the BIOS update process, after booting from the disc.

As for overclocking, I think my CPU is, but honestly it has been 4 years and I can't remember. Is there a way to check internally?

The RAM is original, sort of. One of the original cards had an issue (within about 2 months of purchase) and was replaced by Alienware. No replacements since then. No real problems except those caused by my ineptitude. The BSoD issue began when I installed Win7 (August), though originally I didn't know it was a BSoD, as the Blue Screen itself went so fast as to not show, and my PC would just reset itself. This happened about once or twice a week, so I didn't bother with it as it was an annoyance, rather than a problem. Then I installed and began playing Final Fantasy 14 (September) and the BSoDs happened 3-4 times a day, with longer periods of Blue Screen. The Video Card was replaced in October, postdating any issues.

Download CPUZ and post the CPU, Mainboard, Memory and SPD tabs.

This will tell you the current settings.

You should have some info in your manual for the stock settings.

Since the EVGA BIOS did not work, I suspect that you have an XFX motherboard. Alienware offers a big fat zero motherboard support.

Is your case sealed? (as in, a sticker over the back saying "warranty void if removed" or some of that jazz?

Newb question: by case, do you mean the tower? If so, no, I've been in and out of it a bit. Is the case something more specific?

Yes, the tower

Does it say EVGA on your motherboard?

I couldn't find EVGA on the motherboard at all.
