Blue Screens

Guest

I'm using vista home premium 64bit version for a few months now, and about a
month ago I started having problems. About a month ago I updated my BIOS and
downloaded several windows updates and updated my video driver and since that
day I keep getting Blue Screens on occasion. It has kind of rotated between
3 different BlueScreens:

kernel_data_inpage_error
0x7A
with the second argument being c000000E

driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
0xD1
with the second argument being 0...0z

c000021a Hard Fault/Fatal System Error
0xc0...01

Now I have tried many things to determine the culprit of these problems...
I tried restoring my system
I tried reinstalling vista
I tried using memtest-no errors found
I tried using chdsk-no errors found
I have a virus scanner and it hasn't found any viruses
I have done a fairly comprehensive search of the internet looking at
suggestions for fixes for these problems

My system specs are:
OS: Vista Home Premium 64bit
CPU: Q6600 Intel
RAM: 4GB Crucial Ballistix PC6400
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA Seagate
Video Card: Nvidia 8800 GTS 320MB
Power Supply: OCZ 700Watt GameXstream
Motherboard: XFX 680i

Don't let MS Update install NVidia drivers, it can work but often does
not. The best way is go to go add / remove in control panel, remove the
drivers and then download and install the new ones for NVidia's website.
(It not MS drivers but trying to install over the old ones that is the
problem).

You should save the new package, remove old, turn off antivirus and
other security software and then reboot, make sure AV is off etc and
then install new drivers before doing anything else. This does make a
mess of the desktop but oh well...

I don't let windows install the nvidia drivers I did try to install a new
driver without removing the old one and I thought that might be what
orginally caused this, but since then I have reinstalled vista and I always
remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. I don't shut off
the anti virus software, but I don't see how that would make a difference.

Also I should note that I only get the blue screens when my computer is
under strain, such as installing new software, installing drivers, running
multiple programs at once.

Some AV tries to prevent registry changes or scan files as they are
being installed, it "Can" make a difference but nit usually.

Sounds like maybe a hardware fault or a BIOS setting may also be an
issue, dirty CPU fan / heatsink might cause this. Also possible the
power supply is not quite big enough for the video card, though that
sounds very unlikely in your case. Have you got a book for the MB? Maybe
you can spot something in the BIOS settings.

How hot the Video card get? I have a BFG 7900 that's fried itself in < 6
months and that had like a 4" extra fan blowing on the back side of it.
