    Win7 RC BSOD

    Hi,

    I have an acer travelmate 5720 with windows xp installed. (Intel core 2 duo 2GHz, 2 GB Ram, 160GB HDD, about a year old).

    Anyway I decided to put windows 7 rc on it, which installs fine and found most drivers straight away, with the other 2 coming down through the solution center thing/windows updates.

    The problem is about every 20 mins it keeps doing a BSOD.

    Has anybody else had this issue, with the same, similar, different laptop/pc?

    Thanks.

    Did you update a display driver from Windows Update?

    Every display driver I've ever taken from there has resulted in blue screens...

    My old place has around 300 of these, the early ones that came in needed a bios update to work from Vista to XP, had various issues with them. Might be worth doing that for yourself

    The display driver was already installed as soon as i logged in and checked so it would have come from windows.

    Not tried a bios update but I know there are alot of the travelmate 5### series that have xp and vista on.

    Will try both ideas on monday at work. Thanks guys.
