Windows 7: Various BSOD crashes on new computer

I believe I have the same issue, although on an ASUS. Win 64 bit, GeForce GTX260, SoundMAX Integrated audio. Brand new computer with no modifications. After 15-20 minutes the audio starts to stutter, break up and sounds very robotic. Performance gradually degrades until audio is extremely distorted, eventually resulting in a crash. Seems to happen with graphics-intense video games, but lowering the video quality settings doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think it's stress-related. When I quit the game, I check the temperature settings and everything seems normal. Restarting the computer seems to make the problem go away, although I can't say for sure it's 100% effective. Drivers and BIOS are all up to date. Memory check returned no problems. Would be very curious to know if you've had any progress on this issue.

The tech at Gateway reports he is still looking into it with the engineers. I'm currently trying to let my computer remain in standby when I'm not using it, seeing as it normally crashes soon after my first boot of the day. I'll try that for a week, then post again with the results.

Ok...less than 30 minutes after my last post, I got my first crash after attempting to just leave my computer in standby.

Without even looking I will bet you all have 64bit and you all have more than 4 gigs fo ram.

possible answer ???

I posted earlier about having the same issues with the same computer bought from the same place. When I got into my system logs and and sorted events by type, i could see that ALL the big ERRORs corresponded in time with each shutdown/recovery (i'd kept my own log of dates/times). All of them referred to a SideBySide error/issue which I initially read was a virus but subsequently found is related to Visuall C++ issue. (see my first post https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/69698-since-new-repeated-recovered-fr-unexpected-shutdown.html

INTERESTINGLY, the first note of the SideBySide error went all the way back to Nov. 2007 (a full two years before I bought the computer!!) and corresponded to when it was first started up.

Anyway, my sidebyside error tracked to communication issues with AdobeAir so I uninstalled that and haven’t had the unexpected shutdown since. (It’s been a couple of days now.) However it’s not completely fixed since I do get an error in my system scans.

LedFloyd sent me this: sidebyside error can mean that you are missing some Microsoft Visual C++ 2005. you can get it here and your error will stop. Download details: Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x64) <---this is the 64 bit versioin but the other are on the same site

I’m going to do this and hope/expect that it will solve not only my issue, but many others experiencing the same. It might be this common communication issue.

I too have 6 GB of RAM; i am guessing there is some issue with > 4 GB of RAM and 64 bit Windows 7. (Note: My current problems are just plain old fashioned freezes, not BSOD. This changed after I swapped out the graphics card and drivers)

I have 6 gigs of ram as well....what's the problem with that? The whole point of going with 64 bit is to have more than 4 gigs or ram...

For the past few days, I've been testing something out. Each time I start my computer for the day, I immediately restart it once. This has very reliably prevented the stutter/crash issue from occurring. Would also like to clarify that I don't actually get a BSOD, instead my computer gets gradually worse and worse with the audio/video stuttering and distortion until it just shuts off.

Zigzag, looks like you're pretty busy with other posts but it sounds like you have some info about this topic related to RAM quantity so any additional help on this particular one would be appreciated. Alternatively, is there another thread where this has already been discussed? I've searched around but couldn't find one. Thanks
