    Please help :( A PC was built for me for gaming purposes, and I've had nothing but problems with it...

    After a Windows Update (don't know which one, as I just kept getting prompted to update and I did), it keeps giving me the blue screen of death after a few minutes. I tried to do a System Restore. Since the computer is fairly new, there was only one restore point. I restored to it, and now the problem got worse to where I get the blue screen on startup. I've tried to log in using Safe Mode, but it freezes each time (except if I choose to log in with Safe Mode - Command Prompt, which is even harder for me to understand).

    I truly hope there's a fix to this.. Help?

    EDIT: After I let it sit for a while, it actually didn't give me the blue screen of death for over an hour. I didn't touch anything for an hour. Then I tried to play a game, and the blue screen of death reappeared. It restarted, and now it's back to appearing on start-up. It's not the game, as again this only started happening with the Windows Updates..

    please post last 3 minidump file here, investigating those could show us a way.
    Minidumps file are located in "\Windows\Minidump"
    If there was a numebr of files just post last 3 files (please attention to the date they created)

    I tried attaching the files through the forum, but it said invalid file, so I tried sendspace:

    http://www.sendspace.com/filegroup/l5MunWEit7AGSaWQ+VroJQ (First 2 minidumps)

    http://www.sendspace.com/filegroup/tK/Lnb4laa+XDj8D8DtWYw (Next 2 minidumps)

    For a total of 4 minidumps, just in case it helps to have 4 instead of 3 handy.

    I also once get this message after the restarts from the blue screens from Windows:

    There didn't seem to be any red X's or yellow !'s.

    A friend came over to try to fix the issue. I mentioned that I accidentally shut down my computer during a Windows Update and thus, he suggested we just reinstall Windows 7. As it was trying to "upgrade," another blue screen came out that said: Memory_Management.

    I then proceeded to Google that, and instead put "blue screen memory_upgrade" in my search results (don't know why I did!). I found a simple solution to my problem:

    I've been playing Borderlands for an hour so far and no problems so far... Really hope this resolves everything!

    Spoke too soon... even though I was able to play for a while, eventually the blue screen of death came back.

    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    Here is the latest mini dump file: http://www.sendspace.com/file/kx6m5v

    And just to see if I could do this on my own: I did a Disk Cleanup, Disk Check, and SFC/SCANNOW. Things were deleted and nothing was found from the scan. As for the performance of my machine:

    Physical Memory
    Total: 7343
    Available: 5644

    akina,have a look at your memory modules making sure they are securely seated and check all cable connections,how mny sticks of RAM do you have installed,if more than one, take one out then try gaming.make sure the power is off before removing and replacing the sticks.
