original title: Clean Windows 7 install...Why am I getting BSOD after installing windows updates? Please help
Hello, all. I built my first gaming PC last week. The build went well, but the following day, I got 2 or 3 random bsod's, usually on start up. Updated mobo bios hoping it would solve the problem. System was stable for a couple days, then started getting bsod's again. One on start up, one after computer was idle. After another crash after booting up my PC this evening, I decided to do a clean install of Windows 7 (64 bit). Got all "up to date" drivers for all components, did not install any extra programs other than Steam and Norton. Everything was running fine... until I started performing the numerous Windows Updates. Then, it started happening again. BSOD's. I have ran checks on the RAM, SSD, etc, but have come up with no issues. Must be a conflict with 1 (or more) of the windows updates. I have restored from a previous point where windows was working and its been about an hour with no crashes, but I would really like to figure out what is causing this and want to know if I should preform further Windows updates?... Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am new at this, but am somewhat technically sound, and can give you any info you need to provide me with any help. Once again, thank you.
