Severe bluescreen problems

By lolpol
Jul 2, 2010
  1. Hey,

    I have one laptop and one desktop PC. THe laptop was bought because I couldnt be bothered with the problems that my desctop has.

    THing is from the start i had a rather **** computer. I then came into some money, bought a new Quad-core processor, 7200rpm 500gb samsung harddrive, 4gbs of paired ram, a radeon hd 5770 grapgics card and a nice good antec gaming chassis.

    The thing is ... this should have sorted my problems. bUt it seems to let them persist. My computers performance in games is fantastic, installing goes like a charm. BUt the thing is i have always had problems with crashing. Regurly i receive the BSOD, or how its called. I had run, defrag, harddrive checks and i have tryed installing on different drives other than the 7200rpm one. (i have 2 slower 500rpm hardrives also connected in. Whereas one of these wont actually stay on, but instead works sometimes but most of the time isn'teven accesable).
    Its not during demanding processes. Last time it actually happened during music playback.
    Yeah well any feedback would be great. Due to me not really having any good experience in the areA!

    Just F.Y.I. the mods will most likely move this to the appropriate BSOD forum. Anyway...

    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don’t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.

    i could only find one dump file though! Which is wierd, seeing as the computer crashes every couple of hours.

    The dmp file is even to large to post.. any sugestions?

    The Manage Attachments section has a ZIP option which will compress said file.
