Gooday all. As stated in the topic title, my new W7 installation keeps on shutting it's self down. I am dual booting with PCLOS09 and it is not having these issues, so I am presuming it is a software problem rather than hardware. AMD64 3200+ 2.00ghz, GEforce 9400GT, 2x gb ram. Fully legit copy of W7 Pro. Your input would be appreciated. James.

Gooday all, an update. I just turned the machine on and it was running fine for around 5/7 minutes. I get a blue screen telling me "windows has shut down to prevent damage to your system. If this is the first time you have seen this screen" and it dropped out before I could read the rest. I am writing this from a new installation of ubuntu on another drive on the same computer and there have been no issues with this. I had not seen the blue screen before but that is because I have not been at the computer when it goes down. Any ideas would be most appreciated. James.

Well, blue screens indicate hardware issues,not software. Test the RAM first and get back to us. Also, make sure the video card drivers are the latest. While that is a software issue not hardware, I've seen similar things happen.

Thank you SanDiegoPaul. I was down at the computer shop this arvo and I asked the young bloke behind the jump about this problem. His opinion was the same as yours. I couldn't be bothered fekkin about with it too much so I did a complete re-install. Formatted the whole HD to NTFS and reinstalled. It's been up and running ok for 3 hours now so I will wait and see if it stays up over night.
