My new computer (custom built) keeps BSOD'ing for no reason whilst running most steam games HELP!

Yesterday I came home happy from PB tech after buying a copy of win 7 home premium 64 bit, I bought it so that it might fix my computer having the same problem as listed above. It hasn't helped and has made my speakers generate an annoying buzzing tone non-stop unless I turn them off. The blue screen told me before restarting the pc that it was a ram problem, out of memory error. That is why I bought the upgrade from 32 - 64 bit Win 7 now its saying there is a problem with the display driver, catalyst 13.12 (latest) but also showed this on 13.11 (older) is there any way for me to fix this without spending any money on new parts... (I'm broke after buying win 7 :( ) ?

  2. Did the machine beep at all? If so how many beeps did you hear?

    I have a speaker plugged into the motherboard, but no beeps...
  4. If anyone can't find a solution I am thinking of moving to linux, (steam OS)
  5. What kind of power supply are you using?

    550 Watt cooler master PSU
  7. I'm not sure 550watts is enough for your system. Do you have another you can try to see if it boots?

    I don't have another PSU to use sorry, so I can't test it. when I bought the psu the person said my system would run fine on 450 watt...

    I got the larger one just in case.
  9. Do you have all your stand offs screwed down? Are there any loose wires anywhere? I'm not sure what else it could be...

    Every spare wire is tied up and everything else is in place, thanks for your help though... :D
    I'm going to keep looking for a fix though. Thanks again

    You are welcome. But I would try another power supply. I've built many systems and the only logic that I see is the PSU at this point. If the power is not exact, your system can exhibit very strange behaviors, as it seems to be doing. If you can get hold of a Seasonic, Corsair something well known, I think you may find the answer. Good luck...
