    OKay so I am using XP and tried Win 7 on trial. I started to get a BSOD when I was using win7 Randomly. I was worried it was the harddrive.

    Time went on everything seemed fine.

    But then it started again, BSOD. Just randomly. Somtimes doing things sometimes doing nothing.

    The BSOD never gives out a report. It stone cold freezes.

    So I reformated my pc back to XP. But the problem continued. SO I know it wasn't win7

    So I had a brand New Backup hardrive I installed thinking it was my HDD and still the problem continues.

    Certain times when the crashes happen, I am forced to put in a CD to fix windows.

    I was thinking it has to be RAM or Motherboard.

    So i'm testing Ram with Memtest86 I'm gonna let it go maybe 3 passes.

    But can anyone think of anything else of what it could be? An how to test?

    I dont know how to test the Motherboard.

    I know my motherboard is at least 6 to 8 years old.
    Some details I forgot:
    The Error is a BSOD.
    Somtimes after Crash I need the windows CD to fix the Boot
    There was one time it crashed and the pc would boot, start loading windows and auto restart continuously.
    Well Memtest86 ran 3 times and passed every time.

    I'm baffled.
