    Hi,

    Please post your post your minidumps as attachments.

    You might have to zip them.

    I can tell you now,it`s most likely caused by a driver not working with Vista.

    Do you overclock the CPU or graphic card?

    I find ATITool is installed. Change it to factory setting if you overclock the CPU or graphic card.

    ATITool was installed, but I de-installed it.
    So is Rivatuner.
    I have set the values of the graphic card back to factory default, as the card is already running hot at default.

    Hm, thank you for your reply aleph, but it's just that when I have a bsod, I have to reboot, leaving me no option for a windows program to start.

    Never heard of Recom psu. How many amps on the 12volt rail?
    You need at least 30amps.

    I see iastor.sys and classpnp.sys calls...

    Could be a problem with the SATA controller, Hard Drive(s) or memory

    I got myself the box of the psu and it says under DC output -> 12V -> max 26.0A .
    Now the graphic card says: minimum 400w or greater system power supply
    (with a minimum 12V current rating of 26A)

    So could it be, that being at the minimum rating is causing the bsods?

    Thanks for the input,
    Khabaal

    At tmagic:

    I went to device control and the hard drives and the Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID controller shows no exclamation mark.
    What could I do to provide a solution or to further investigate this?

    Thank you,
    Khabaal

    You're running 312 watts on the 12v line... try a bigger supply. To figure out watts, the formula is I X E or in this case, current 26 (amps) X 12 (volts). You are running what we call a "No Name" supply

    The 450W rating is a peak maximum, for a noname brand use 65% of this for continuous power, therefore 0.65X450=292.5W Pfff. An overworked PSU can damage any component in your rig and/or cause any number of BSOD issues all looking like hardware corruptions. So eventlog files and such don't always work as a diagnostic tool. You end up chasing ghost issues around in a circle.
