Question: games shutting down win7 64bit

When ever I run installed games in WIN7 64bit, after a few minutes of gameplay they power off my PC without warning.I have spent time and money replacing various hardware and updating BIOS, DirectX, Nvidia drivers and any other updates I can find and it still happens. Only thing not looked at it PSU. Everything worked fine in 32bit.Any ideas?Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: games shutting down win7 64bit

Did you install Windows 7 64bit motherboard and other drivers? Did you check in your BIOS to make sure you are set to 64bit computing in there? After that, install SpeedFan to monitor internal temperatures to see if your problem can be traced to there. If your temperatures are OK, then test your memory with Memtest86. Either overheating or a bad RAM stick can cause your type of problem.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Question: Win7 64bit games

Hi guys, I am thinking about re-installing Win7 with 64x to take advantage of a few things such as stability and access to my extra ram beyond 4 gig.My question I understand it most games are 64bit compatible such as farcry 2 , crysis 2 etc.. but would I need to re-install those games for them to work as 64bit, as apose to running emulated in 32bit mode if I don't reinstall them?As I understand it these games don't have seperate 64x installers so I was wondering if they will just function as 64bit games....?Thanks for your input.

Answer:Win7 64bit games

There is no upgrade path from 32 bit to 64 bit Windows 7 so you would need to do a clean install of the OS. That means backing up and restoring your data and reinstalling all applications.

I am owner of a Tecra S10 and using Vista 64bit as operating system.
Unfortunately Toshiba is not really supporting this OS version, because the offered drivers have to be collected over different products which are using same hardware.

Does anyone knows wether Toshiba will start sharing drivers for Vista 64bit soon and what's about Win7?

I think Vista 64bit drivers will run under Win7 as well, but **** when will they officially release drivers for Vista 64bit or Win7?

Any info would be interesting.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Tecra S10 - Vista 64bit and Win7 64bit driver question

> I think Vista 64bit drivers will run under Win7 as well, but **** when will they officially release drivers for Vista 64bit or Win7?
Why you don?t contact the Toshiba and ask the guys for this info?
Then you could share this info with us? I mean this is a user to user forum and I doubt there are some official guys from Toshiba?

But I?ve got a own theory; I think the Win 7 drivers will be released after the official Win 7 release. At this time you can get only the Beta version Win 7.

Regarding the Vista 64bit OS drives;
I checked the Toshiba European driver page and the 64bit Vista drivers are available so where is the problem?

Cheers mate

Hi every one,

i have this machine which is causing too much headache for me,

this machine was having Windows XP 64 Bit,
and it had a lot of BSOD crashes, then i just decided that it's the time to make the move to Windows 7 for this high performance machine, since i was not able to upgrade to Windows 7 because of some applications just working on Windows XP 64 Bit, but now there is a copy of it,

Any way i'm still having those BSOD crashes,
I have replaced the SSD 500GB hard drive with another regular hard drive with no results,
tried to remove and install nVidia Driver,
tried to install a different version of that driver with no results,
tried to remove McAfee AV and installed Kaspersky Internet security 2013 also no result,

now i have grabbed all the data using SF Tool, and i really hope that u can help me with that issue.

thank you

I purchased the Win 7 Pro Upgrade 32bit via digitalriver, but I've been doing some reseach and probably should have selected the 64bit version.

- Any ideas how I can get the 64bit version?

- For those who ordered the 32bit back-up disc kit for the extra $15 and have received it, does it come with both 32bit & 64bit?

- I've already installed and activated the 32bit version, but when I go to install the 64bit version, will I need to / is there a way to deactivate my initial 32bit install or will this not matter?

Thanks for your advice.

The first two questions call Digital River about a refund and reorder. Have heard that some have had success with that. No need to un activate however if you decide to try to use that Key again then you will have to call MS and talk to them to make it work on another pc if that is your intent. Good luck to you and enjoy!

Just wondering if it would be possible to backup a Win7 32bit system, install a Win7 64bit system then restore the 32bit to the 64bit system?


Answer:Macrium Reflect: Restore Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit?

NO -- a clean install is required to move from one to the other. IF you restore an MR backup over an install, it replaces the entire contents of the partition. So basically, you would be going back to the version that you saved to backup.

Hi all,

Hope all is well. I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S520 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 already installed and would like to upgrade it Windows 7 Ultimate.

I had already purchased a retail version for Win7 Ultimate before (the full version not the upgrade) and would like to use this for the upgrade.

I looked around the forums for some advice and found some very useful stuff but I would appreciate if someone could help with the following. My apologies if the answers were posted already. Must have missed them.

1. I read about the Windows Anytime Upgrade feature. Will AU work with the full Win7 Ultimate retail key or does it specifically work with an upgrade key?

2. If I use the AU and it is successful, will the new Win7 Ultimate key be converted to an OEM version as well? The full-version retail key I have gives me the right to install this to 3 computers. I do not want to lose this right since I may use it for different computers in the future.

3. Is it better to go for AU or a clean install of Win7?

Since I just purchased the laptop, I have no personal data or programs installed so I do not have to worry about losing data. However Toshiba has certain software installed with the laptop. My understanding of a clean install is that everything will be wiped clean and then necessary software e.g. drivers, etc... need to be installed again. On the other hand, once I upgrade to Ultimate perhaps some of this software will becom... Read more

I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)

I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Win7 32

Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)

Now I would like to go from Win7 32bit to 64bit

When I try and run the Win7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only"
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.

I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.

Can someone help me here?


Answer:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

Hi folks.

I have searched through the various threads that deal with this topic but have not seen anything that deals with this specifically.

I have a custom built computer I put together last year. I installed Win7 32bit at the time because I didn't want to bite the bullet and reinstall everything. That time has now arrived.

My computer has:

i7 Core 960 2.67GHz
8GB Ram
1TB HDD (Win7 32bit installed)

I purchased an OEM DVD of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and an Intel 180GB SSD drive.

I want to install the SSD drive on the computer and install Win7 64bit OS as a DUAL BOOT. This way I will be able to choose to migrate my applications at my own pace. As I install a 64bit version of my Photoshop CS6 for example, I will delete it in the 32bit OS once I have all my settings, brushes etc. moved over.

Should I ?

1. Install the SSD and get it recognized by the BIOS and the 32bit OS.
2. Boot from the DVD of the 64bit OS and choose the SSD as the location of the installation.
3. Reboot the computer after installation complete

and at that point I should get the dual boot screen?

The above is how I understand the process based on some tutorials I've seen for dual booting XP and Vista. Does this work for Win7 32 and Win7 64?

Answer:Dual Boot Win7 32bit and Win7 64bit on a second SSD drive

Easy - install the SSD and disconnect all the HDDs. Then install Win7 on the SSD and make the SSD second in the boot sequence (first should be the CD/DVD reader). Then reconnect the HDDs.

When you want to boot from your 32bit system, temporarily change the boot sequence (usually via F12 at power-on).

I am working on a Dell Studio 1745 running Win7 64 Home Premium. I need to run a piece of hardware (Tascam US122) that is incompatiable with the 64bit OS. My plan is to partition the drive and install Win 7 32bit on the new partition so I can run the mentioned hardware. I've done this on another machine (Dual Boot XP and Win 7) and ran into a problems with the bootloader. I learned to install older OS FIRST because of that. I'm wondering if installing Win7 32bit on a current Win7 64bit machine will cause a similar problem with bootloaders? I'd rather not have to mess with the bootloaders, but I really need to run this hardware. And, since this is a Dell, with touchscreen, and most IMPORTANTLY, a friend's computer I want to be 100% sure I'm not going to cause issues I can't fix.

So, again, will installing Win7 32bit on a new partition of a Win7 64bit machine cause problems with the bootloader, or any other foreseeable problems?

Thanks a bunch!

Hello Don, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this going to be installed in another computer, or are you having both hard drives in your current computer to dual boot?

If it's going to be installed on a separate computer and you have a second key to activate with, then yeah you could do a clean install with it like in the tutorial below.

You cannot downgrade from 64-bit OS to 32-bit. You have to back up data and clean-install 32-bit OS. Your programs have to be re-installed. Even standalone programs, if designed for 64-bit, have to be 32-bit.CoolGuy

Hello all,

I upgraded my system to Windows 7 32bit (from Vista) back when there was the student discount. And am regretting it now since i work in Photoshop all the time and need more RAM to suppose the work i do. So i'm looking to upgrade my system to the 64bit equivalent of what i already have (Home Premium).
I understand you can't use the Windows Anytime Upgrade for a 32bit to 64 bit upgrade. I also understand you need to do a clean install, which is no problem.

So what my question is, is what product should i buy exactly? Can i get away with an upgrade only? Or do i have to buy the full product?
I still have my Vista CD, so i could re-install the 64bit version of that, then buy the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit upgrade?
Or is there a simpler way?

You can buy the Upgrade key because you have a previous OS already (Windows 7 32-bit).

Because I'm going from 32bit to 64bit, I read that a clean install is required for this type of change. My question is, will my files be placed in a "windows.old" folder? Or will I be required to buy an external drive and transfer them all in order to keep them?

I installed a game from the Tiscali website and since then have an irritating problem I don't know how to fix. I had problems with the game repeatedly shutting down. Now when i run any 3d accelerated game sometimes after a couple of minutes the graphics become corrupted and flash randomly. Or more often the game just shuts down after a minute or two. This happens every time. I have tried system restore, the system file checker, reinstalling the graphics driver (latest from nVidia), cleaning, and checking the operation of, the graphics card heatsink and fan and reinstalling directx 9.0b, all to no avail. Anyone got any ideas? I am using:-AMD Athlon xp 3200+1GB pc3200 ramAsus A7V600 m/boardCreative Blaster5 Geforce fx 5900 128MBWindows xp pro sp1nVidia driver version 53.03

There's nothing in the cbs.log that indicates any failure to fix. Have a look in Event Viewer for anything relevant.

Were you running SFC because of computer problems, crashes etc? If so, explain what problems your PC is having so that we can best assist you.

Question: Win7 Pro 64bit

Hi, I just built a new rig for my sister, system specs are in my profile.

More than not it runs great, but at random it will BSOD followed by more until you do a complete shutdown.

A few days ago alot of data was corrupted after a BSOD, so it has a fresh install with the latest drivers.

If anyone could help it'd be greatly appreciated.

Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure

I would deal with these first
Memory-- download memtestx86 and run it for at least 5 passes.

System files- run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)
Let us know these results.

If that doesnt fix it we will get more aggressive

Question: Win7 64bit

I currently have 4GB RAM on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500. I've been using Win7 32bit but decided to dual boot with Win7 64bit, mainly to see if I see a diference having on OS that uses all 4GB. I'm also prepared to max the memory to 8GB if I decide to go soley with 64bit. I'm basicily looking for insight for other users experience with 32bit vs 64bit. Most my apps will go either way. I'm not a big user of CAD or other memory hungry apps. I've read that 64bit is more secure. Is this true? I appreciate any advice you may have.  

Answer:Win7 64bit

I preffer 64bit I don't know if its more secure or not ,PC are only secure as we the user make them. if you go with 64 & 8GB ram & get SSD you should have a fast T500

I'm using Windows' own Firewall, but it keeps shutting itself off. How do I keep it turned on?

On the same general subject...Can someone please tell me which Windows Utilities do I need to take care of all of those security issues. I know, silly question, but I'm a set-it-and-forget-it kinda guy, as far as security goes. I don't mind the occasional update, but if someone could kindly put up a list of the M'soft brand of Firewall, Spyware, Anti-virus, Blah, Blah, Freakin' Blah!, I sure would appreciate it.


Answer:Why Does Win7 Firewall Keep Shutting Down?

Set it and forget it is the wrong approach to security these days, you must always be vigilant and careful along with keeping on top of w7 updates.

MS has only one real-time protection, which is not real strong. See my sig for MS Security Essentials.
You may also want to download the free MalwareBytes (skipping the free trial) and free Super Anti Spyware to run manually.

You may already have an infection that's turning off the w7 firewall. Scan with those two things and see what they find.

I'm afraid I'm new to forums so if I stuff up or don't make sense please forgive me.

For a while now my PC has been shutting down instantly during, and only during, game play. It seems to happen on all games and sometimes after 1 min and sometimes over an hour. What happens is the PC just shuts down instantly and restarts. There is no error message from windows about it not being shut down properly.

I have had loads of opinions on the problem from overheating, driver problems, ram problems to not having enough power supply etc... Unfortunately nearly all of these have been eliminated by recent upgrades. I changed my 5900 Ultra for a Winfast 6600 GT graphics card, have bought a Thermaltake 550W PSU and have moved into a Tsunami Dream case. Temperature is def not a prob now, I have the latest drivers for the graphics card & power is there in abundance!

I'm desperate for help as I cannot seem to solve this problem and it is ruining my enjoyment of the great games about.

Your CPU is overheating. I would bet my left one on it. Your problem is TEXTBOOK overheat. Make sure the fan on your CPU is working. If you have an 3000+ you need a MINIMUM of 4.5k rpm to stay cool under load( on top of a good sink). 2500 isn't going to cut it.

Hello guys,

since a month, when I'm playing games like Team Fortress 2, Dragon Age 2 or Guild Wars, I get a strange lagg that happens after about 5-10 minutes of gaming.

It suddently freezes my screen, makes my sound lagg and my display becomes black. It sometimes makes my computer crash or stop my game, but the game usually comes back by itself.

Its really annoying: I can't play my game without this lagg. I think that I could be infected.

Softwares running while getting this error message: Game booster v2, steam, AVAST! antivirus and sometimes AMD GPU Clock Tool to OC the GPU.

Am I the only one who has this?

What can I do to solve my problem?

Thank you very much!

I've had an issue for a while with my PC shutting down after x amount of time while I play games. For a while I thought the issue was temperature issues, but I am not leaning more towards a faulty PSU, but I am still not sure.

PC specs:
Core i7 920
Nvidia GTX 275
P6T motherboard
Xion 700 Watt PSU (I read online it's a horrible PSU)

With no AC turned on my house my Temperatures have been:

Idle: GPU: ~49-54c CPU ~44c
Load while playing: GPU ~75-85c CPU: 50-52c

With AC turned on and myhouse ~59 degrees

Idle: GPU: ~43c CPU ~34c
Load: GPU ~69-75 CPU 45-49c


I ran Furmark for 10minutes before my PC booted and the GPU temp was ~104c-105c (It never gets this hot during gameplay, but I was stress testing it)

I ran Prime 95 for 20minutes the CPU Temp rose to 92c so i got scared of damaging it and turned it off. (PC did no reboot during prime 95)


I played tonight a game for 3hours and my max temperatures was :
GPU 70-75c and GPU 50-52c

During these 3 hours my pc rebooted 3 times

I really want to figure out what component is making my PC crash, I am buying a blank dvd to get memtest and test out my ram, also going to run avg tonight to check for a virus, but I doubt its a virus because it only reboots while I play games.

I have had a recurring BSOD problem since I built this machine.
It is very odd as it will occur 1 or 2 times every 3-6 days then it will be fine!
Normally it is Memory Management but it sometimes other things like Bad Pool Header
Seems that every pc I build has a little "quirk" like this and im a bit fed up with it

Anyhow, I have uploaded the last 2 dmp files that I cant read.
Could someone please have a look and tell me what they think could be my problem?
I have all my drivers up to date as far as I know.
My system is:
I7 950
Gigabyte ga58-ud5 Rev 2
6gb of OCZ platinum ram (triple channel)
OCZ ssd
SB xfi


Answer:BSOD win7 64bit - can someone tell me why?

1. Do you have any overclocking of your processor or RAM?
2. How old is the system?

I want to lean towards faulting memory modules.

I suggest running Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Download it, burn it to a CD, boot from it, and run it overnight AT LEAST. Each pass will take a couple hours. Report back if you have any errors reported.

If that doesn't work, try running the machine with only 1 stick at a time for a few days each and see if you have issues. If they work fine separately, try using two sticks. Also try different slots, if your board allows it.

Also: You say you had this problem since you built the machine. Did it start from day 1?

Dave Hi and welcome

Yep just a few BSOD's eh. well did a quick analysis and it seems most of the chreashes are caused by memory. A couple were caused by the dierectx driver (which still could be a memory issue) that being said I would

download memtestx86 and run it for at least 5 passes. yes its a long time. you need to so that you can tell if it is a memory issue or a heat issue

I would also run a system file check. type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

If you are overclocking stop

let us know the results

Hello. I've been constantly having this BSOD for 3 months. Never had such persistent problem before so i'm looking for some input.I started having problems when i attached a WD passport hdd to my pc - it would constantly crash, i couldn't overclock my cpu and i couldn't put more than 4gb of ram.

I could overclock my cpu and put more ram but shorty after problems started occuring again, i rolled back everything i did even reinstalled my windows but 7f still happens. I'm currently removed the hdd and waiting to see if it happens again.

Answer:Win7 Pro 64Bit - memdump

Link to a how-to: WinDbg Analysis Report

Unfortunately, the Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular Win32k.sys) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following (this will not affect the analysis of the current files - but it may help later files that are acquired):
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( Support for Windows 7 technical problems and troubleshooting )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds (if this is the case we may never find a fix)

So, let's try some old-fashioned detective work.....

First, please provide this info:

Please update your ASACPI.sys file immediately. The 2005 version (which you have) is a known cause of BSOD's.
Go to this page: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Enter your OS in the dropdown box
Scroll down to the Utilities section and download/install the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit " - it's the 15th item down in the Utilities section

I tried to uninstall IE9 several months ago because I was told it was conflicting w/ Firefox. After I uninstalled it through control panel the folder and its contents were still on the hard drive. I manually deleted everything but the IEproxy.dll. I could not remove this because it was in use by windows explorer. Now I want to re-install IE9. The install starts but then I get the message that some files were in use by WE restart the CPU to use IE9. After restart all that is in the IE folder is the EIproxy.dll and a folder called SignUp. In that folder is a couple of Icons and nothing else. I have tried installing in safe mode. I can not do a restore because I have no idea when the first change was made and I have installed far to many programs to turn back now. I have tried FixIt which does not help. Is there a way to disable the IEproxy so that the IE install can proceed. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Russ

Answer:Can not re-install IE9 on Win7 64bit

Hello Russ and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's possible that by manually deleting files from Windows 7 some system files may have become damaged or corrupt and are now preventing the installation of IE9. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If there are no integrity violations you should be able to proceed with the IE9 installation. The suggested install method (including prerequisites) is outlined here:

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

If IE9 still won't install you may want to review these troubleshooting steps:

Went to do an offline defrag of system files on reboot and it hung just before the login screen. After forcing a shutdown and booting backup Win7 gave me the option to do a restore (which may remove applications in the process...message stated) or to repair. I went with the repair as I the message on the restore option seemed flaky. The repair failed. I submitted the report to MS as that was an option.

After rebooting again there was an attempt this time to do the offline defrag but the message went by to fast to read the failure. Looked like it couldn't gain access to the hard disk.

Any ideas?

Answer:Perfectdisk 10 and Win7 Pro 64bit

You do not have to do a Offline Defrag anymore with Win 7 X64. It defrags it every time you do a normal defrag. It sure does make life a little easier.

ok heres all the things i use to protect my win7 64bit pc : (all are free by the way)

-firefox with web of trust
-Privatefirewall 7
-Avast!5.0 Free Editon
-Malwarebytes -free version
-and i suppose Advance System Care 3.5 Counts. the free version.

what do i need to alter? i cant afford another laptop so i need this one to be really protected.

Answer:Win7 64bit Protection

Sandboxie - very useful for trying out unknown programsFirefox - best browser out there...also consider the NoScript addonPrivatefirewall 7 - never heard of itAvast! - best free AV out there (in my opinion)Threatfire - you shouldn't be running two active protection anti-viruses at once. If Avast's shields are on, Threatfire's should be turned off (and vice-versa).MBAM - excellentAdvance System Care - BAD IDEA, and here's why: Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding Th... Read more

Clean install win7 home prem. CPU usage is at a constant 100% - 32bit runs smooth but I needed 64bit for all 8g of my ram. Everything I do is so slow, windows is unusable in this condition. All processes/services are normal - I've not did anything to it other than clean install. USB drive won't even reconize in 64bit when it does in 32. This happens from boot, it's slow as soon as windows starts to load.

Hi and welcome

Nope they wouldnt. In win 7 32bit ist can handle some older (16 bit apps) but in win 7 64bit it can onky handle some older (32bit apps) There is another option if your machine is able to. In win 7 there is "XP mode", basically a virtaul XP machine. Comes in very usefull if you use older apps. You can find out if your machine can do both 64bit and virtual xp mode by running a third party app called secura. you can find it for free at

Good luck Mate

Greetings Does anyone know if changing from 32 to 64 bit is;1) legal. i.e. to use the 32bit OEM key and a 64 bit OEM media?2) will Lenovo supply the media? for charge?3) will this cause a general crash of drivers on the T410? thx!!!! Ady

Answer:changing OS from win7 pro 32 bit to 64bit

Win7 activation keys aren't specific to 32-bit or 64-bit.  They are only specific to the version of Win7 (e.g. pro, home, ultimate, etc).  However there is no way to easily upgrade from win7 32-bit to win7 64-bit.  You have to back up your files, format your HDD and install 64-bit OS from scratch, re-install your programs, and then restore your files.  I don't think Lenovo will provide you the media for an OS that didn't originally ship on your computer.  If you were to find an retail OS install DVD on your own, I don't think the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of your computer will work.  It definitely won't activate online - possibly you could activate it over the phone but I don't know for sure (you would need to ask Microsoft about that). For what reason do you want 64-bit OS?  Do you have 4 GB of RAM in your system?

Hey Guys,

So I know this topic has been posted before....and I've been doing some searching so I've already tried a few things:

1. Shrew VPN (Did NOT work, gave me a BSOD when I installed.)

2. Virtual XP (Does not work with my Core 2 Duo processor, damn Intel for not making every processor they made recently support this feature.)

3. VMWare (would really want to avoid this option.)
Is there anyone out there who possibly needs to use Cisco VPN that has gotten it to WORK in Windows 7 64-bit?

Any opinions / advice / thoughts, you guys have, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. It's your firewire driver causing issues.

Right click the 1394 driver in the device manager. Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick.

Then choose the one with Legacy in it's name. Install that. Issue resolved and you are good as new. (I run this driver myself for 1394.)

Phenom II x4 940 3.0ghz.

The first step would be to see if your computer has the specs for 64 bit. Go to and use the Windows Upgrade Advisor. If you do have the required specs, you should be able to install.

If you can install, wipe clean, do not give your key, when asked, just continue with the process. After installation use it for a while, if satisfied install programs. After you know that you are good, supply your key number. At this point make a system image and put it in a safe place. You will be set, now. If a problem ever occurs you can use the system image to get up and going again.

When the download completes close all open programs and web browsers.

With the system connected to the internet ( so that cab files can be downloaded ) run CheckSUR, and restart if prompted to.

CheckSUR may not be able to resolve this specific return code, 0x8007007E. The issue is most likely related to either Kaspersky or a missing/corrupted system file.

I have been lately getting BSODs. They happen usually when I open the computer for first time in a day. The computer can stay on for like 3 hours when I have got like 5 crashes. System specs are in my profile and dumps are attached on my post. I couldnt run the perfmon /report. My W7 is full retail and is the original OS on the system. The age of my computer is like 2yrs and the OS is the same age.

Edit:Because of the crashes I ran Memtest86+ on my old memory (same as my new but 4GB) and it gave about a million errors. I bought new memory and the computer still gets BSODs.

Edit2: Attached 1 dump file, going to attach more some time

Edit3: Added more dump files

Answer:Win7 64bit BSOD very often

No dmps in upload try this method

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Alright. Bear with me as I have a couple questions for you and a few things you can try.

Have you installed any new hardware recently? If so what was it?

What are you doing at the time this occurs?

A couple things I would consider doing first is running Chkdsk /R in a command prompt, Running MemTest86+ for 5-10 passses and if you have any negative results from either, let me know.

Also, update your graphics card, lan, wireless, and audio drivers to their latest stable versions and report back if that has had any success or failures as well.

So first up, do i just copy my whole C drive onto a external hard drive, or just documents. I want to do as little reinstalling and downloading as i can(i'm not tight i will if i have to). Then plonk it on the wiped HDD? I don't want to loose anything.

With game programs Steam, Origin, i absolutely don't want to download them and with the games. Just copy BF3 etc folders? I've had this problem before (nothing to do with windows), where it would want to download all of the games, but i already have them installed etc.

Using Alexander Nolan's "SysSpec" I think my Toshiba laptop might be suited to x64 bit ?

If my Toshiba specs are designed for 64-bit would upgrading (clean install) current Win7 32-bit to 64-bit improve performance?

Hello Russell,

Yes, your i5-2410M CPU supports 64-bit.

As for performance, I don't think you'll notice any or much difference for how you use your PC.

Prior to win7, the system builder EULA used to say its meant for assemblers and manufacturers and not for the end user UNLESS the end user actually assembles his own rig. But in win7, that crucial part has been removed and now as per the EULA, the system builder license can only be used on a PC meant for resale. So technically it does appear you would be breachibg the EULA by installing it for personal use.

However, let me state at the risk of annoying some people that here again there is a gap between idea and practice. System builder copies are freely available at respected stores, if MS didnt want them to be there, they wouldnt be there. MS doesnt care whether you are an assembler or not provided you buy a genuine copy and install it on a single computer.

Hello and welcome everyone,
This is my first topic/post in this forum. I seek help how to remove PUP.BitCoinMiner. The virus keep restoring after being deleted by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. My computer works a bit slower than usually, but its performance did not degrade much. I am more concern about security. If that helps, recently I used a doggy software, i.e. cracked version of an analytics software.
Please help.
Thanks in advance!

The newest crash was caused by dot4.sys which I believe is a printer driver. I would remove it to test.
