Odd Bluescreen problem

ive had my system built for about a year now, and about 6 months ago the pc would crash and BSOD, seemingly at random. sometime it happens when im in a game, sometimes it happens when im on the desktop, and it even happens when ive left the pc running while at work. i tried to look at the dump files but i cant figure it out. maybe a driver problem since the pc always comes back on, would it b best to just reinstall windows 7
ps i have windows 7 ultimate x64 installed now

i have the dumpfiles saved if you would like to look at them for me thanks in advance.

  1. Hi eddie200112 and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    The BSoD usually means a problem with the RAM or bad drivers. Test the RAM using memtest86+ and let me know the results.
  2. Ya ive tested the ram before with memtest and it all came out ok.

    [#0005ff]If it's going off when you're not even in the house, it could be worth updating the graphics driver. So long as it comes back up with a blue screen after closing, I doubt it's an overheating isue but I'd check the warning and switch off temperatures in BIOS. Turn them both up ten degrees and wait to see what happens - it shouldn't take long if that is the issue.[/#000ff]
  4. I had a similar problem, the ram was running ok, also memtest did run for hours without errors but sometimes bsods occur.
    I went to check the ram support for my motherboard and chanced the ram, no more bsods here.
