Windows 7: The Computer Itself crashes

Windows 7
The Computer Itself crashes

I cannot blame windows7 for it's crashes, because it will often crash during initialization and even before BIOS POST mensage appears... however i cannot find out what is the crash reason... i mean, a blue screen appears, for 0.3151 seconds and then the computer restarts, i cannot see to find the crash details anywhere, so i don't know what to do. I heavly suspect from either memory or video board (as it failed to start 13 times already (according to Action Center) ).

I mean, every day i have to start it about 5 times before it actualy gets to the Desktop...

How do i look at the blue screen error mensage on Windows 7?

and if the problem is Memory/Video Card what do you guys sugest me doing?

Pentium quad core.
Nvida Geforce 8600 GT
4GB memory

You may follow this link on how to post for crashes.

What you can do for now is to check that the jumpers on the hard drives (if IDE) are set correctly.

Also, check on your memory Vdimm and timings in the bios. Make sure they are set correctly for you specific RAM modules. Visit the maker's site of the modules to find out the information on them. Use the spd tab of CPU-Z if you need to figure out which modules they are.

Make sure the pc is not overclocked at all.

Windows 7


About the link: at least now i know where is the "error message"... how do i open that file? D:

well, this computer have worked just fine untill i installed Windows 7 (and then i was noob enough to try to update the BIOS, the updater crashed... then i successfully managed to update the BIOS but it had reset because of the failed update... so basicaly, jumpers im 100% are on the correct place, however i have no idea of what should be the bios configuration, do you know any Tutorial to configure those things you wrote?

I know how to use google, but it only works when i know the words to look for =/

"MAH WINDOZ IS CRASHN ZOMG HALP!" would return far too many "not my problem" pages =/

Also im a total noob when it comes to Hardware..

Also the minidump.dump attached, actualy, a couple of them...
