Okay so one of my friends recently tried out the Win7 RC that was released by MS a couple of days ago. Ever since he started using Win7 he started getting random BSODs. He tried everything possible to stop the bsods but couldn't find a solution so he went back to good old XP. Now here is the problem. PRIOR to installing in Win7 he has had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS with his PC. WinXP was super stable. He never had a problem at all with his computer. When he installed XP back, the same blue screens that happened in Win7 is now happening in XP. Why is this occurring? Can anyone shed some light on this subject? EDIT: anyone know a good program that can read mini dump files? I remember there being a link on this forum for one, but that was a long time ago. The thread is probably gone. EDIT2: He is currently running an X2 5800, 2GB of ram with a 7600GT on a m2v-mx asus board. EDIT 3: I'm pretty new at this mini dump stuff, I really don't know how to read dump files so if anyone can help out I'd really appreciate it. This is my first time uploading mini dumps file so i hope i did it right. EDIT 4: Just incase, my friend is using safe mode right now. Seems to be a lot more stable in this mode. Maybe this can shed some light on the subject. Also i should of put this down on my original post, he has reinstalled XP numerous times to rule out a bad install. That doesn't seem to be the case. Even on a fresh clean install xp constantly bsods on him.
