Random BSOD, all updated drivers, firmware and bios. Need help!
Hello, before Thursday and the release of Windows 7 x64 I was running XP pro x64, I did a clean install of Win 7 Home premium x64 and was faced with random BSOD every hour or so. I updated all of my drivers, bios, hardware, everything I could think of
and it still continued to happen. I gave up on Win7 x64 figuring it was a driver issue, so now I am back on XP pro x64 and I am still having the random BSOD pretty frequently.
Since it isn't the RAM, it's probably the processor and/or the machine is overheating. Something is failing when it gets hot, for sure. If you're technically savvy, strip the board down to nothing and start testing. Of course you'll need to leave the RAM
and the video card in to see what's going on. You might want to use
Prime95 for stress testing. You don't need to create a user account. Here's a site which shows you how to use Prime95 as a stress test/troubleshooting tool:
You might also want to swap out your video card for a plain vanilla one that you know works before you do the Prime95 test.
