Hey there Bleeping community...so i've been having trouble with my pc lately...so recently i upgraded my psu and graphics card from a 9800gt to a gainward gtx275(bout 3 weeks ago) and to a corsair TX 650.. and up until recently i had windows vista professional 64bit,i 've now moved over too windows 7 64bit (due to all my friends nagging me to move over :huh: ). So far it has been okay, except for the dam BSODS! I thought it might be my new hardware. but i was using my new hardware for about two weeks with vista and no problems, playing intensive games like empire total war, Company of heroes and Batman AA on full graphics on a 23 inch monitor. So then i moved over too win7, and installed just the basics, like Avast anti virus, klite and later on malwarebytes and nvida driver version 197.45. I've had win7 for about one and a half weeks and i've had 4 bsods. So enough of that, just showing that its a new fresh install with a few programs on it.

So the times that the BSODs happen. all of them have happened while playing games, 3 times with bioshock and once with Company of Heroes(most recent) otherwise their are no graphics artifacts or BSODS in Windows or web browsing so i'm hoping its driver related. Also i haven't installed motherboard drivers or sound drivers that came with my motherboard(ASUS P5Q) as i heard you didnt need too with win 7. Should i do this?
I've used blue screen viewer and heres the list...thanks a bunch bleeping community :huh:

If things were working fine before then why did you switch to Windows 7?

The above refers to your video card drivers. Reinstall them or upgrade them.

Also i haven't installed motherboard drivers or sound drivers that came with my motherboard(ASUS P5Q) as i heard you didnt need too with win 7. Should i do this?

I would do this: Even though they have Generic drivers for the Windows 7 they might stabilize your computer and add new features. Depending on your Motherboard disc has windows 7 drivers

Two possible solutions

Check Dive Manger to see if any(X) or yellow(!) they need to be updated

I found your motherboard support pages for windows 7 but I need the whole model number but i found differnt P5Q-XXX. See http://event.asus.com/mb/windows_7/

Option 2

Optional Updates in Windows Update may have drivers

Hey there bleeping, sorry for going AWOL, was in the wild with no access to internet, aka, was camping with family and friends :huh:. So havent actually had a chance to read (and thank you guys) for the responses so far...
so first @ crytodan: the main reason i upgraded to 7 was because there was a special for it at my local pc shop if you buy a 1 terabyte harddrive (and i was in the market for one of those) and i thought i might as well upgrade coz i've heard good things about it :huh:. So the first two solutions, i havent tried them yet as i've just gotten to my PC now, but i hope they work...

and @ coxchris, i will be installing my drivers as well...

the other two problems i found this web page Link...
and something i should have posted before was that i do have my CPU (Q9550) overclocked from 2.8Ghz too 3.4 Ghz, but i didnt think that this was relevant as i've had this CPU like this for many months running very cool with not a drop more of voltage, and have not had any problems in Vista...
Any way, will keep all posted about the problem developing...

Over clocking a CPU could cause blue screens of death. Can you revert back to the stock speeds?

Hey there. yup i can reduce my overclock...but i never had any probs with the overclock on Vista, could the chip start getting some strain?...but how? like i said, its running perdy cool all the time, around 30 Deg celcuis idle and about 45 Deg under load, and i've also tested it using Prime 95.... I've reinstalled older nvidia drivers and installed my mboard drivers, uninstalled daemon tools...if i get another bsod then i'll run my cpu at stock and see if that is the prob...if not, then i'll move on too the RAM :huh:... but no BSod today... :thumbup2:, but havent played much bioshock today....:huh:
