Windows 7: BSOD occurring more frequently

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
BSOD occurring more frequently

Hi there, the past couple of days I've been having BSOD's more and more often. It doesn't seem to matter what program I'm running, google chrome, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare or just leaving the computer running for a few minutes.
Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
i7-2600K CPU @ 3.4GHz
Nvidia GTX 550 ti graphics card

I understand that not all the RAM is accessible due to running a 32 bit system, I do plan on upgrading to 64 bit as soon as I have the money to buy it.

Thanks for your help guys, appreciate it

Hello badpanda1, Welcome to SF

Nearly all of your crashes (but 1) blame your graphics drivers, i would start with this
Update/reinstall your graphics drivers to the latest ones, its best to uninstall old drivers then run Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling then install new drivers from here Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers option 2 is easiest as will auto detect what you need.

Dont know if you realise but your windows 7 license entitles you to run 32 or 64 bit windows if i were you i would get that pc backed up blanked and a nice new 64 bit clean install on there to utilise all your ram and you wont have to worry about your bluescreen problem

Thanks for your quick response. I also get black screens which typically last for a couple of seconds when playing games with even a moderately decent graphics requirement. I'll go ahead and reinstall/clean my graphics drivers but I've been told to do that before with no success (for the black screens anyway) . Also, do I need the windows disc to install w64 bit? As the shop I bought my computer from forgot to give it to me. Thanks again for your help!

Agree Pauly I would run a memtest in view of the black screens too alomg woith obligatory on call scans.

Have just fixed a Vista with similar problems.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool BP you need to make a bootable disk and set the BIOS to the optical for boot this atkes a fair time to run but you should see some errors if there is any after not too mant passes.

The others are

Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

both are free and easy to use best do these first if you haven't already

Regards the missing win disc no you dont need it as long as you have got a product key, you may visit Dell Community and download the version of windows that matches your install and thats all you need, all info is here or here depending on what type of license key you have
