My computer crashes or BSOD's (Blue screen of death) all the time, I only have 2GB of RAM but the thing is even when I leave it on and the only application running is utorrent it will still crash.

I don't know exactly why it's crashing. I'm using 64bit Windows ultimate. My full specs are beside my name. (Top right)

I'll try to write it down next time. Is there any way of stopping it from restarting so that I can see the error message? or should I just snap a picture?

Sorry I forgot to update that, it's actually Windows 7 (the full version - not the RC)

Try running memtest, usually BSODs are just regular ram failure. Unless if it was under really specific circumstances then it's from other causes.

Try setting the Power Scheme to High Performance? And maybe also go into your BIOS and disable Intel SpeedStep and C1E.

Not sure if that'll fix it, but it's worth a shot.

Why are you using 64 bit Windows with only 2GB of RAM?

Maybe Windows is allocating larger pages of virtual memory on your hard drive, and your hard drive has problems.

It's a shot in the dark, but try doing a full surface scan of your hard disk.

BSOD can also be caused by buggy drivers, or overclocking/under cooling.

What kind of temperatures are you getting?
