    Might be a hardware problem.
    Have you installed all drivers for the computer?
    Have you checked for any updates on the graphics card?

    then you might have installed a program that is causing those problems.
    use the msconfig and uncheck everything and restart computer
    remove all programs you don't use at all.
    I don't think you did a fresh install on your computer. Try doing it again.

    Whenever the BSOD appears again provide us with the code number to verify the problem.

    Just a thought. what operating system are you installing?what did the computer come with orginally? if you are putting in vista or windows 7 the configuration in the Bios should be set for ahci. if you are putting in xp it should be set for ata, sata, ide, or compatability. in other words say you are going from windows 7 back to xp or xp to windows 7 if the configuration isnt set right you will get a blue screen.

    okay I'll go back home and try it, but I'm pretty sure i have done that in bios. well i would't know exactly what original OS was installed because it has been formatted already. I have right now installed is windows 7 ultimate.

    The COA sticker on the bottom or under the battery should tell you what it came with originally.if the bios configuration doesnt need changed then it might be a bad hard drive or motherboard.
