Hi

So.. i just installed windows 7 64 bit Pro.
First thing i did was do the windows update, then i decide to update the driver on my video card, when the installation was complete, 10sec later it froze, so i told myself thats probably the problem. I do a restore and kept all drivers like they were right after installation.

I finish all the windows updates and then I start installing a game and then another and then another... 2 hours later in the middle of installing a game, it froze.I do not get BSOD.

I went directly on Nividia.com to get the driver.... that didnt work.

Only thing installed are : 3 games and windows updates.

I did a hardware and memory tests, everything pass.

I went to check the EventViewer, it just says that the computer was shutdown not correctly due to a bug or error or crash..

SPECS :
Intel CoreTM i7-920 (2.66GHz, 8MB Shared Cache)
6GB DDR3 1066MHz (3 x 2GB DIMMs)
NVIDIA® GeForce® GXT280 Dual
Dual Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000Base-T)

Any help is appreciated!... its been 3 days now trying out stuff nothing works..

I am also running Windows 7, 64 bit, with the same problem. My Dell is only maybe 5 months old and used strictly for my online courses. I am sorry this isn't an answer to your problem, but I have looked everywhere for a solution. If you find something, please let me know. I have had to redo my work so many times b/c of this.
Thanks,
Scott

Well on another forum someone told me to try this :

Try enabling driver verifier, first: http://www.techsupportforum.com/micr...s-7-vista.html

If you have not run these three tests yet, please do so:

Furmark: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-furmark.html

Prime95: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html

Memtest86: http://memtest.org/#downiso

When Driver Verifier causes BSODs, upload a BSOD report:

im gonna try that out today, you too should try this out and let me know what happens.

Howdy,

Also take a look and see if any minidumps have been created

you will find them here They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump

Copy the last 3 and compress them zip or Rar and Go Advanced in your post then Manage Attachments and post them

Note Do not try to compress them until you have copied them to somewhere else.
