  1. Hey you guys are doing a fantastic job in helping other people. Keep It up. I joined the site after seeing how helpful you guys really are.

    I have never suffered from BSOD in my whole life before now. Installed windows 7 64bit yesterday, everything worked fine until today. It crashed 5 times in 1 hour WHEN I was video chatting with some one on skype/windows live messenger. First i thought skype is the victim, I uninstalled it and tried to continue on Windows Live Messenger but the same things occurred there too

    I am using an AMD Opteron Processor on a DFI LANParty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert Motherboard with 3 GB of DDR RAM.

    Here are my dump files.

    Thanks a million in advance to everyone for your kind help

    Unfortunately there are a lot of BSOD's in 64 bit Windows 7, and there is simply too little information available on the problems with this install.

    64 bit continues to be a problem on many configurations of VISTA Premium, so we can expect that Windows 7 will take a while to sort it all out.

    Usually, the problem is related to video graphics drivers and some other media drivers that are not quite right for that install.

    Thanks for replying everyone.

    I experimented a bit, shuffled RAM, changed PCI slots etc. Finally I found out it is my cam, namely Logitech Quickcam Fusion which is the culprit. Whenever I try to turn on video or try to change the settings, Windows crashed. Hopefully they will release the drivers for Win7 soon as currently I am using Vista 64bit drivers.

    Today windows 7 was released officially and Logitech also added drivers for windows 7 on their website (which are basically the same as Vista).

    My windows is still crashing. The video works for like 2-5 minutes and then a sudden BSOD. Please guys help me out. Thanks in advance!

    Another Windows 7 64 bit BSOD victim

    Guys (and Gals),

    Obviously it's evdient that 64 bit is seeming to have ALOT of problems at the moment. Should I just wing it and hope the blue screens don't trash my machine, or revert back? I'm running a:

    Been blue screening after successful installs very randomly. Corsair mentioned checking my Extreme Tweaker settings in CMOS. I've got it set to run "safe", and I'm still blue screening. Does anyone know if Microsoft is working on this, and what we need to do while we wait?
