Windows 7: Windows 7 Crashes or BSODs

26 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows 7 Crashes or BSODs

I recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 and for a few days everything was working just fine.

Although recently World of Warcraft will crash the entire computer randomly. Steam will open and load but then crash on the first screen. And other times I'd receive the BSOD. I've tried many different fixes for the problems, yet none of them worked. I've even reinstalled Windows 7 as a clean copy (by deleting the old partition and creating a new one). I'm stumped and really would like to be able to access my games.

I'm starting to wonder if this is a hardware issue that arose other than a software issue. Any help would be fantastic.

I installed the latest nForce, but afterwards the computer bluescreened again and now when I start it up the monitor won't pick up the videocard.

Update: I removed and reset the RAM and the computer WILL start now and the monitor does pick it up.
