Ok second post and I'm into major technical questions...

I just put together a machine with an Asus M3N-HD/HDMI, AMD Phenom 9500, 250 GB SATA Hard Drive, and 4 GB of DDR2 RAM.

The DVD drive and power supply are remnants in an old ATX case I had. The power supply is only a 350, so this might be part of the problem.

The problem is I'm getting a BSOD every time I start it. It will sit idle forever, but whenever I try to install anything or update any drivers I get an immediate blue screen. I attached a few minidumps (I don't know how to read them). If you could give me any information, I'd be forever indebted. I don't really have the money to spend at a computer repair shop after buying all these parts! Thanks in advance.






I have 5 more if they'll help too.

You're probably right on that assumption. You did remember the thermal compound for the heatsink, correct?
