Windows 7: BSOD, games freezing, sudden shut downs

26 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
BSOD, games freezing, sudden shut downs

I have had my computer for 2 weeks

I had a power shutdown when installing windows and had to remove 2Mb RAM before it would install ok

It had now installed OK but I get repeated freezes during games, have had a couple of BSOD plus other random shutdowns

I have had further power supply problems since (UPS seems to be stopping power randomly, have now removed it but also I live in a country with regular random powercuts so without UPS still get problems with those)

I am wondering whether the rest of the RAM is a problem as I already had to replace one lot

Other than your nvidia driver being a tad out of date I don't see anything that immediately stands out.
I just reformatted though and haven't reinstalled my debugging software so I'm only breezing system info. Someone else should be by shortly.

If you suspect your ram running memtest86 never hurt anyone. Let it do at least 5-7 passes though.

Thanks, did install the driver using windows but had a BSOD straight after - it asked for a restart but before I could do it the computer went straight into BSOD - these are yesterday's files.

Have just download driver from NVIDIA website
