Guys... after I used compressed air to spray the computer, my CPU has been running around 20 to 30 degrees cooler. Ever since the decrease in temperature, my computer no longer gave me the BSOD "Physical Memory Dump" during high activities. Thus, we concluded that due to the over-collection of dust in my CPU, the temperatures were running too high.

However, when I came upstairs finishing dinner, I saw that the screen once again came up. This time, its worse than ever, because my computer refuses to get past the windows vista loading screen before giving me the BSOD error. Now I can not even boot up my computer.

I have been monitoring my computer temperatures with Speedfan everyday since I used the compressed air, and the temperatures were relatively normal.

What can I do now?

Running:

Motherboard: ASUS M2N-E SLI AM2 NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
GPU: EVGA 512-P3-N802-A1 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 125W Dual-Core Processor
PSU: Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL-S 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Power Supply
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ

EDIT: I managed to log on, so I'll upload 4 pics. The left one is when I was gaming and just before I received the BSOD. The second one is me gaming AFTER cleaning the computer, and received no errors since. The third one is current temperature. The right one is my current GAMING temperature.

What does BSOD error say?
Did you try Safe Mode?

The BSOD said "physical memory dump" and it goes from 0% to 100% and the computer restarts.
Thanks to you, Broni, I got my computer to work flawlessly for two weeks :D
But now the BSOD is back to haunt me again T_T

EDIT: And I did not try safe mode. In my panic, I forgot there was such thing. So I used the power switch at the back of the computer, turned it off, and waited for 5 mintues and turned it back on. Now I am using the computer and so far nothings happening. However, I'm still concerned that the BSOD error came up and I am pretty sure it will be back.

What is the current situation, because in your edit, you said you're able to login and in your latest post, you said, the computer is restarting?
Idle temps look little bit high, but still, gaming temps don't look tragic.

Oh. Sorry being being so unclear x)

So heres the situation:

2 weeks ago, I got the "physical Memory dump" BSOD everytime my computer is on high activity (ie gaming)
You told me to use compressed air and clean out my computer.
After cleaning, my temperatures dropped around 20-30 degrees during gaming, and never had a crash since.
Just an hour ago, I came upstairs to a completely idle computer (I had absolutely no programs running, no firefox, no msn). Then I suddenly saw the BSOD.
After the BSOD appeared, my computer restarts, and when the windows logo comes up during the loading screen, the BSOD comes up again in a never ending cycle, thus I am unable to log in.
So then I panicked, and used the power switch at the back of the computer and powered off the computer. After waiting 5 minutes, I powered it back on, and I logged on, and posted my screenshots.

Thanks!

If the computer is working at this very moment....

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

That's fine...
As you can see, last two crashes indicate your video card.
If you have separate video card, I'd open the case again and re-seat it.
Maybe you knocked something out while cleaning.
If still something wrong, try to reinstall video card driver.

To confirm, re-seating it means, just taking it out and placing it back into my PCI-E slot right? x)
