Windows 7: constant slow motion crashes

constant slow motion crashes

Hi all,

For the past week I've had crashes after about an hour of use. I was getting BSODs that flashed quickly then the computer tried to reboot but would not get past the motherboard screen.

Power cycling brings windows back. After enabling a page file I was able to get a BSOD and minidump which wasnít happening previously.

I've tried memtest86 (only 1 pass), chkdsk and windows virus scans. Nothing shows up. I dusted out the internals and monitored the CPU temp and that was normal. The video driver (AMD onboard) was the only driver that needed updating and I fixed that with no change.

Here's my info:
x64 windows 7 professional, homebuilt, about 1 year old.

More details:
The first time the crash happen I was running Google Earth for the first time in a long time. Initially web pages stop loading. Then I canít switch programs or start task manager. Then the spinning rings cursor shows up. About a minute later the computer flashes the BSOD then reboots. Though now it seems to persistently show the BSOD.

Any ideas on what's going on or how I can troubleshoot?
