Windows 7: RC 7100 & Random BSODs... Depressing

glad it works.

what is the monitor driver? I just plug in any monitor and don't even remember any monitor having a driver (I know, 100 years ago some did have drivers)

In general, less is more. W7 is so good with drivers, I think only for dedicated graphics cards and dedicated sound cards you would want an extra driver.
(unless MS finds a way to take care of that automatically too)

I reinstalled XP on my laptop and was shocked how many drivers I needed to install since W7 spoiled me so much.

Well, I believe that x64 OSs are a bit more picky than 32 bit OSs and even though I was ok with the Generic PnP that Windows installs, I had issues when playing games and my Acer was using the Generic PnP (XP driver) and once I found a x64 driver for it, my issues went away... not sure if that fixed the issue or if something else but I went with it

Yes, I was shocked to see that Win 7 had installed all the latest drivers on its own when I first install the OS... it freaked me out to say the least since Vista was extremely annoying in that respect and XP was even worse.

I've found faulty RAM is actually a large cause of them as well. I've ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool on a number of systems and found offending RAM. Once the RAM was replaced or just removed...After trial and error...The BSOD's stopped completely.

This is also true but since I dual boot with Vista x64 as well and I was not suffering any BSODs there, I figured it was a driver issue or something to do directly with Win 7, more so because we are talking about a Beta OS, nevertheless, I did check the RAM just for good measure!
