    Windows 7 Default IME not responding, no sound coming out of computer, no video playback

    Does this happen after the machine has gone to sleep? This "Default IME not responding" seems to be a bit of an known issue, some say updating drivers has helped, for your networking chip and sounds as well.

    Windows 7 Blue Screen while browsing the internet?

    32 or 64 bit? Might be drivers. What browser is it? Fire fox has been a bit buggy on windows 7, with developer having to release a fair few fixes! Make sure it's up to date, and you have all the updates from MS Update installed to. Your not the only one to get that BSOD.
