Windows 7: Weird crashes/lag/BSOS

Weird crashes/lag/BSOS

Hey guys, some really weird stuff has been happening with my PC lately, and I'll try to describe the problem to the best of my ability. Basically, I installed Windows Live Essentials to use the messenger, and the messenger would completely crash my computer, giving a bsod once. I uninstalled it, and the problems have somewhat gone away. My computer will randomly slow down, when listening to music, the music will lag and go at like 50% and so will the mouse. When I was playing the RIFT beta, it started lagging badly and then my screen turned back and my monitor said no input found or something and it kept going back for a second and then the black monitor again, to the point where I could only restart. When I had MSN installed, my monitor did that once or twice too, and this message would pop up at the bottom right saying nvidia device version 266.xx kernel blah blah has stopped working but has recovered. I'm running the latest drivers, and have updated everything.

Let me know if you need any more info guys, thanks. I have also attached one of the crash dumps and health check thingamajigs

No dmp file attached, please try this method.




To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
