Windows 7: BSOD mainly when streaming online video

Looks like it's the same driver as before on the System Information for Windows screen.

Could be... sometimes limiting yourself to just the driver and not all kinds of stuff that comes with sets like Catalyst, helps. If this doesn't work... rethink using W7 on this system as you've obviously got HW that is not W7 compliant.

That's a crying shame.

Is it mainly the graphics card?

If so, should I look to possibly upgrade that (within budget)?

Is it the graphics card that is the problematic hardware?

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner...

I'm not sure yet. It would be a good thing if you could test it somehow by borrowing one though.
We could also try checking for temperatures, specially of the graphics card.

I'll go over the whole thread again, as soon as I have some time, to see if I might have missed something and get back to you..

OK, looked over the whole thread again. I'm not entirely sure but expect that it is not the hardware as is. It could run fine with older / other OS's. I think it is a driver/W7 compatibility problem. The trouble with that that you's go from one step to the next in identifying a problem. Your mobo is as old as the restwith a very old BIOS and firmware. I'm no big expert on that but I would not be surprised if that would be your next problem.

If it were my machine? I'd make sure I saved all the info/data I needed and the I'd try to fully update the system BIOS first and then a clean install of W7
Clean Install Windows 7

Immediately start a lot of tests (Furmark, memory etc). Only when all that passes... re-install software (one by one) and personal data.

But.. I can see all that is a pain and my choice would be easy as I have multiple machines. if you want I can ask othes here to have a look at this thread. Feel free to post back with your choice/opinion...

Thanks for looking over it again. I do appreciate your efforts. Maybe I should run a memtest86+ overnight to find any RAM problems?

How do I 'fully update the system BIOS' ?

If reformatting will solve the problem, I wouldn't mind trying to re-install Windows 7...

Bios update is tricky, you have to be careful and know what you are doing....if you want i could post some instructions. But first you would need to use your mobo version and locate the latest bios for it at the manufacturers site...

Another first would be to do some research on W7 compatibility. You can do that via microsoft.com using your system spec's.

I'm really not sure what I'd be doing with the BIOS update! Would need some instructions if that is the route to take.. I know that the Mobo is P5GD1-FM so do I need to go on the Asus or Fujitsu Siemens website to find an updated BIOS?

On the Asus site, I navigated to this page (for P5GD1 - it doesn't say -FM on the end):
http://support.asus.com/download.asp...HMksM8Eivmzqbk
which has 11 options under the BIOS heading.


Downloaded the Windows Compatability Advisor which returned the result:
