Nice solution, rbeldua, very constructive. How you can say that it's time to change the owner when I actually like Win7 and have tried for MONTHS now to fix the crashes is beyond me. Why don't YOU tell me why I don't get crashes in Linux Mint-must be the terrific owner!?!

severedsolo and others-Thanks for your posts. It's encouraging to hear so many GOOD experiences with Win7 x64. I agree it would be great if everyone would get on board with 64-bit computing, especially manufacturers. In the meantime, I'm still stuck with trying to figure out why I get all these different types and random crashes-

WartHog-Dumb question: do you mean switching the data cables on the drives? I'm willing to try it.

Anyone: can any BSOD hunters out there look at my earlier BSOD info and see if there are any other drivers that should be updated or disabled? How do I know if I need a new mobo or CPU?

Your best bet would be to create a new thread and follow the instructions here:

Seriously, though, any insight into this would be great.
Please follow the BSOD posting instructions

Is this OS that fickle? Will Microsoft ever get the kinks out of 64-bit Windows?I long for the stability and reliability of XP Pro!!!!!!!
BSODs are almostly caused by outdated software and bad drivers, it not Microsoft fault but its the fault of the user for installing such software which cause BSODs. XP≠Win7

Thanks, yowanvista. Here's the link to my latest thread with dump files attached and pic of monitor screen during another crash. I followed Dean's instructions, but still get crashes. No BSOD's lately, just crazy lines (see pic) and black screen rebooting computer. I'll do whatever it takes as long as I can fix this thing
