    I built this computer just over a month ago and the first month was smooth sailing, but now this problem just started recently and I have no idea what is causing it. I tried going back to a restore point and that still didn't fix it.

    It happens randomly when starting programs, games usually. Also when I try to start back up it will often lock up on the login screen and force me to restart, sometimes it takes 2-4 restarts before I can actually get back into windows. This is the biggest concern for me.

    AMD Phenom II 965 quad
    Asus M4A785TDV-EVO
    8GB Crucial Ballistix
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
    Windows 7 64 Home

    Attached are the files from today, I guess it doesn't make files if it locks up before Windows even loads? Because I don't seem to have any for those times.

    In addition to Captain's excellent advice, uninstall (better) or update UltraMon. The driver you have now is too old for Windows 7:

    Still locking up on Welcome screen. I put in my password, it says Welcome then the little circle starts spinning and eventually stops and it will freeze up. Did this about 10 times in a row. Does not happen in Safe Mode.

    Each time I run it, it tells me "If you have recently attached a device to this computer such as a camera or music player, remove it and restart your computer"

    I have nothing connected other than mouse and keyboard.

    Well I reformatted my windows partition and did a fresh install. Everything worked until I installed Nvidia drivers again. Then the same problem came back.

    Went back into safe mode and cleaned them out again with Driver Sweeper and now it works again. So I guess I've narrowed it down to being the Nvidia drivers... Don't know what to do now. So at the moment all my system can do is run one monitor at 800x600 resolution and that's it.

    It's not necessarily a BSOD problem anymore as it is a NVidia driver problem, but any advice for this now? What is confusing me the most is how it worked fine up until just a couple days ago and now it doesn't with no changes made.

    It could be the hardware not the Drivers. Try with a different card. See if you can borrow one from one of your friends. If that works then you know what next.

    Hope this helps,
    Captain
