    What is your wireless and/or Lan card?

    The reason I asked is because only one minidump gave anything definitive driver Dnetr28ux.sys. The thing is there is nothing on the net concerning this driver which is really hard to do. However, take away the D and there is plenty on netr28ux.sys which is a wireless driver.

    There are a number of NIC card manufacturer's who will utilize a third party's software/drivers. Perhaps D-Link simply added the "D" but this is purely a guess.

    Try updaiting your wireless/NIC/LAN drivers.

    Let us know how it goes. RAM causes more issues than can be counted.

    Ran 3dmarks all day yesterday with no problems. when i booted the system up this morning i noticed it said cpu had changed press f1 to continue or del to enter setup.... i pressed f1 to continue went to load 3d mark and got a bsod. i have attathed the mini dump.

    I have set the bios back to what i had yesterday and i have now updated the wireless d-link adapter. i can not update the 2 onboard lan ports as their is no new drivers on the abit site.

    Let us know if the BIOS update worked for you. If not I'll read the minidumps. If they are a single file or two you really don't need to Zip them.

    Stube,

    Prior to migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?
    To determine if your current computer configuration will be compatible with Windows 7 please go to the following link: http://tinyurl.com/no4xb7

    Another resource to verify compatibility is available at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center located at the following link: http://bit.ly/1gW6Ns

    What BSOD error message are you getting? Also, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and feedback.
