Win 7 Ultimate 32bit
Clean Reinstall

Well all hell broke loose so did a clean reinstall.

Runtime errors...Mediaplayer libraries cant find files...default browsers conflicting... addons hickups...regular bsods...LOL

Lessons learnt
-No more testing browsers (had safari, mozilla, chrome beta, iron)
-No more testing addons: Dont care bout the chrome customizations
-No more driver testing (microsoft, laptop manufacturer, nvidia site)
-Minimum softwares, minimum fuss...back to the stone age

Going with the default installation drivers...Will see if any BSODs appear.

None of those have high chances of causing system problems with the exception of driver testing. General advice: That's what you want to stay away from unless you know what you're doing fairly well.

Don't test diddly on your primary system - if it tanks, you're left without the primary system.

New laptop, old hard drive - infinite loop on startup
Hi, the screen cracked on my old laptop and my insurance decided it would be cheaper to give me a new one as opposed to fixing it.
