BSODs and freezes hitting randomly

Hi there, I have recently upgraded my system from 2 GB to 6GB of RAM and installed Windows 7 Pro 64bit (it's not the original OS)for try and study the benefit of the 64bit platform....my hardware is 3 years old. I have update drivers, OS but I have had few BSODs and freezes....I have attached the reports for your information, any suggestions welcomed.

Thank you in advance, Clam

Hello Todomodo and warm welcomes to you.

BSOD Analyse

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2007 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:

  • Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.
    • (For an automatic check, you can use the Upgrade Advisor)

BIOS // nfo
Code:
BIOS Version/Date    Phoenix Technologies, LTD ASUS P5N-E SLI ACPI BIOS Revision 0801, 10/25/2007
Best Regards,
Frederik.

Hi Fredegail,

I'm running w7 from April 2012 I was with 32bit until 1 month ago,
I 've followed your suggestions and WUA give me a good response....I have attached a copy of this.
By windows 7 compatibility center, I went on Asus website and for my MB model (P5N-E-SLI) I've discovered that there are 9 update for my bios, but in all onesty I don't know which one is the best....I never update bios because I have seen a lot of trouble for who did.
Can you suggest any solutions?
Thanks, Clam

Updating BIOS today is not as much trouble as for 5 years ago. Today they'll do it with utilities and such. I suggest updating your BIOS to the latest.

Best Regards,
