Win 7 BSoD ;-;

Well I've been leaving it idle and it BSoD's when I sleep. It BSoD's when I run some programs. It BSoD's when I don't have any games running. I have no idea what is causing it.

I think it might be the ram, I ran two sticks in on memtest and got no errors but it was getting slower and slower with each pass so that might be it. I'm thinking about exchanging them at Fry's for another pair since the 30 days isnt up but the full refund is ;/

It also might be the new Catalyst Control Center/Video AMD drivers.

Also I was in the Event Viewer and found some "Critical Kernal.Power 43 (61)" errors if that means anything.

More about bsod
  1. I have similliar problem to u, i thought it was my gtx 460 card glitching or my RAM as it BSOD memory buffer. its fine sometimes and othertime it fails. quick question has your windows update failed to work as well? firefox, IE crashes and then BSOD? running system checks such as command prmpt sfc /scannow also fails into BSOD while scanning

    have you run checkdisk? i had a few problems in there as well. until now still BSOD frequently and at random intervals
  2. if you change the power profiles/options does this help? example, Balanced/High Performance/Power Saver in advanced power settings.

    I wouldn't put it past those drivers though, would recommend going back to something else, i updated sometime back, can't remember what version but it was buggy so went back and have probably skipped past the dodgy version (for me anyway) by now.
  3. Do you have Zone Arlarm installed? If so, uninstall it and see if your error stops.
