Windows 7: BSODs, freezing and crashing daily, especially after startup.

Late reply but I *think* I may have found the problem.

Before I even got a chance to run the memtest after reading your post my computer had numerous BSODs, crashes, etc. The last time it crashed I couldn't even turn my computer back on, so I opened it up and checked to be sure everything was plugged in correctly. Upon doing so I noticed two of my RAM sticks were really dusty on a few spots so I cleaned them off real quick, and ever since then I've not had a single BSOD, crash or freeze.

Maybe it's just a stupid coincidence but...I don't know, it's been a few days since anything has happened which is sort of a record, considering I've had crashes at LEAST every other day for the last couple months.

If anything does happen again the first thing I'll do is run that memtest, but I'm hopeful that dust was the only issue.

Well it's been over 4 days since I last posted, meaning it's been nearly a week since I've had any sort of problem with this computer. I do believe it's finally been fixed after all these months. o_o

I'll go ahead and mark this thread as solved. Thanks for your help though, panais. It was much appreciated.
