    Hello everyone.
    I am running windows 7 on my desktop pc and at random occurrences it decides to crash and give me the BOSD. I am running x64 and I did a clean install on it.
    My specs
    AMD 5000+ @ 2.6ghz
    6gbs ddr2 800
    1GB Geforce 250 GTS

    At random moments it just crashes and i have no idea why.....
    Any help would be appreciated.

    When it crashes again,,, if you get a BSOD, at the bottom will be a stop code
    Please provide that code.... you might also find it in the event viewer as well.

    We need more information to provide any kind of help.

    well i am thinking about something... i have a gigabyte board and it has a overheating protection function where it will automatically shut off the computer if its overheating... if it happens again i will provide the code.

    Hello and Welcome to the Forum.. :)

    It could very well be the motherboard's overheating protection function.. Or it could be that a driver has become corrupt and is forcing the crash.. ;) Or even an app that has become corrupt or contained malware/spyware/adware etc.. Have you ran your Anti-Virus since this started? Or your Malware/Spyware/AdWare app? (assuming you have any of these installed).. ;)

    i have run antivirus and found no problem with my drivers, now that i really think about it, my cpu used to restart overheating video cards but i guess windows 7 isnt prepared for such a function....
