My advice would be to purchase and install a genuine copy of Windows. You have the stolen Lenovo key on an ASRock motherboard.

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.

Hi - I'm having the same problem. Keeps crashing randomly and multi-coloured screen comes up. NVIDIA/Windows drivers all up to date - would you be able to look at this?

Many thanks in advance
