what does the error say?


I used to get this on vista sometimes when playing games and using any media player (quicktime, wmp11, nero)


I fixed it by installing xp.

Check your systems log to see if it caught the problem. You have a directory set to dump info in right? Also you can switch the quick BSOD's off. In System Properties->Advanced there's a checkbox in Startup/Recovery that says "Automatic Restart on System Failure". Try to find the hex code it's gives you when it crashes.

It's not your ram, yes i did get black screens and hanging but I also got BSODs.

It always said nvlddmkm.sys or driv4.sys for me.

Default Re: Random bsods

it could've been the ram, certainly because he is overclocked (aren't you?).
ram is the first thing i check when i bsod.
then cpu voltage/stability,
then programs /drivers,
then virus/spyware (which often it is).
