    Hi,

    I have been running Windows 7 X64 (with lots of additional software) for about a month now.

    Yesterday I flashed the bios of P5Q Deluxe motherboard with a SLIC 2.1 BIOS I downloaded from the forums. Everything worked for a few hours and then I started getting BSOD errors.

    I restored the BIOS to the original version but the errors continued. So I restored and earlier version of my Windows 7 setup (I use True Image to make regular backups) that didn`t help either. Eventually I had to restore my last image of XP (with more or less the same software installed). XP works with no problems.

    Today I decided to do a clean install of Windows 7 with no luck. I can`t even finish the installation without a BSOD.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Hi again,

    I opened the case and blew some compressed air inside to clean it. Then I took out the two DRAM sticks and switched their slots.

    Windows 7 hasn't crashed since (about an hour).

    Regards,

    Mehmet

    Good deal, sometimes it's something as small as changing RAM slots, good luck!!

    make sure you have no overclocks as well, especially during installation.

    in my experience, nearly all of my computer BSODs have been caused by problems with RAM. For whatever reason, I've been very unlucky with memory. My system, which was built over a year ago, went through two sticks of Ballistix tracers, and at least 6 sticks of Dominator RAM until I got 4 good sticks of Dominators that I'm running now.
