I've bought some new hardware recently, and am running Win 7 (64 bit). Recently I've been getting a blue screen after some video streaming. Any idea what the problem could be.Unfortunately I've not been ablte to capture the bluescreen, to see the error codes. Are they saved somewhere?

I thought it could be my SSD disk, but I've run a diagnostic and everything seems fine.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Download BlueScreenView:
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

Hi Allan,
thanks for the quick reply. I did what you suggested, but it seems like my computer doesn't save the dump file. I've changed the settings accordingly.
I guess we will have to wait until it happens again.

that are a couple of reasons blue screens occurs:

1) hardware incompatibility

2) drivers conflicts

3) software bugs.

since you just added a new hardware, that is probably the biggest possibility of that problem - i.e. hardware prob.

there are some solutions to that, update the driver for that hardware. get the latest driver for that vendor.
