Hello everyone,

I'm new to computers so bare with me if I'm slow in understanding. Thanks.

My problem is that I got a new gaming rigg, but whenever I play a game sometimes I get BSOD, or the game crashes or the pc freeze. And the driver sometimes says It has stopped working and screen goes black then it comes back.

I googled around and then I un installed the driver, installed it back again but nothing happens so I wanted to update the bios logged to msi by delete button before windows start and pressed live update left it for 2 hours. it booted once now it won't boot again as when it boots I see randomly blue dots shattered all around the screen. I'm very scared this might damage my hardware as I paid ALOT of money.

my pc

There will be a CMOS reset button on the motherboard and at the rear of the computer. Depress it and release. Then reboot the computer.

The CMOS reset button is a tiny 2mm diameter red button. Look for it on the motherboard. No you have not damaged it. If you can post the model of your motherboard I can tell you where it is located.

There is one 'Clear CMOS' button on the board, and another one at the back panel.

Back Panel I/O Ports
- 1 x PS/2 Keyboard port
- 1 x PS/2 Mouse port
- 1 x Clear CMOS button
- 1 x Coaxial SPDIF-out
- 1 x Optical SPDIF-out
- 4 x USB 2.0 ports
- 2 x USB 3.0 ports (blue)
- 2 x eSATA / USB 2.0 Combo ports
- 1 x RJ45 LAN Jacks
- 1 x 6 in 1 audio jack

The one at the back panel may be easier to locate. Depress it and release.

The 'Clear CMOS' button is a small black colored button on the rear of the computer just below the PS2 ports for the keyboard and mouse.

The RAM must also be of good quality and reliable in order to reduce BSODs. Also please keep in mind that it is not possible to safeguard against every possible eventuality of problems or failures.

The best advice is to start out with a robust system.

Yes 32-bit OS can address only up to 4 GBs of RAM. Good that you are installing 64-bit.

mean while it is installing, I know I ask a lot. but thank you for answering :D .

What do you think of my system since I didn't build it myself so I don't really know how good is it.


Edit:- Do I have to change the ram thing to 1600 from bios I saw the guy first time at the shop changing it and if so where can I find it?

Good system in my opinion! The Vengeance RAM is great; the Seasonic PSU is excellent, overkill but excellent; the graphics card is very good; the motherboard is good; processor is very good; Win 7 64-bit is very good.

I can't fix it through these, I'm pretty sure I installed the latest driver. I'm guessing it might be due to failure in memory?
