Hi everyone this is my first post so thanks in advance for reading this. I'm not great with computers but maybe I can provide enough info for you to help me. I think I have faulty RAM or maybe a video card issue but not sure. I have been getting Blue screen crashes at least once a day, firefox and all other browsers crash constantly, flash never works for more than 10 minutes at a time before crashing, most games I play crash periodically including World of Tanks and League of Legends to name a couple. Some programs also just stop working altogether until a restart. Firefox in particular and Google Chrome. Also my version of Windows was supposed to be a legit version, but after a month it says its not authentic, I've done all the updates and it seems like my computer is rerolling to a time when they werent done, I have done no system restores lately but have tried it before to no avail. I've tested my computer with AVG, AVAST and MCaffee and have found no viruses or malware. I've removed basically every program except for default programs and nothing works.
My specs are:
OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
Version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
System Manufacturer: MSI
System Model: MS-7636
System Type : x64-based PC
Processor : Intel® Core i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07GHz, 3067 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. V1.9, 9/14/2010
SMBIOS Version: 2.6
Nvidia Geforce 210
My question I suppose is do you guys think this is a hardware issue or something else? Also is it possible to remove 2 sticks of ram and still run normally or at least test my RAM this way? I am downloading CPU-z at the moment to hopefully gather more information. Again I'm fairly noobish when it comes to all this but if this isn't enough information or too much just tell me whats needed. Also my Windows Event Viewer has like 2000 errors but I have no idea how to look at it and tell you what is causing the errors. I do know when It blue screens it says something at the top about Kernel, it only stays up for a second don't know if that helps you or not, thanks again guys I know this is a mess.
