Hi All

Just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate N couple weeks ago but in the last few days been getting the BSOD
Anyone know  a good app to trace what is causing the BSOD or give me a better report than the Event Viewer?

TIA

I've only known one person who's gotten BSOD on windows 7. lol. Have you tried googling your error message?

James, first thing is to note the BSOD number and find what it is related to. Once you know if it's memory, disk, or drivers then you know to focus in one area.

Yeah trying to get the BSOD number but the memory dump is quick then reboots
Got a suspician that it might be my graphics driver causing it as that is the only driver I've changed in the last week.
I also installed a new vent fan as the old one was moaning like a banshee about the same time

To get the BSoD to stay:
Click start
Rick click computer
Click properties
Click advanced system settings (on the left panel)
Under the startup and recovery box, click settings
In the system failure box, untick automatically restart

When you start up after a BSoD in the check for solutions box, click more info and you can also get error codes from there. Googling error codes usually helps much more than windows' check for Solution thing
