I have been having issues with computer such as programs crashing occasional bsod, 3-4 months ago had problems with windows sayin it wasn't genuine(it is, I bought it with computer) now for a while it wont run windows update(I checked on microsoft website and tried a few thing, Nothing works. Also windows defender won't update.

So I backed up all my files to external hd, popped in win 7 cd tried to start fresh and it gives me bsod every time. Now I am wondering if its a hardware issue. I tried changing settings on bios to default and then back.

Any help/Ideas wold be greatly appreciated

Try using one stick of RAM at a time and testing the system. Is this PC from a vendor or did you build it? Some systems have a full diagnostic utility you can run off a CD to test the hardware.
