Periodically when I'm using my laptop, it crashes and flashes a blue screen for such a short amount of time that I can't make out what it's saying. It then proceeds to reboot.

Also, when I try to use Windows Explorer, it crashes. Windows Media Player also crashes.

It hasn't happened up until recently. I have virus and spyware protection, but the computer crashes before any of the scans can finish.

Here's the info about the laptop:
Acer Aspire 5000
AMD x64 Processor
512 MegaBytes of RAM
80 GigaBytes of HD Space
SISM760GX Graphics
Windows 7 Beta OS

Try to disable automatic restart (see link below) so you can get the exact error message when BSOD happens.

I got lost in the instruction since Windows 7 has a different setup.

It's pretty much just like Vista, but those instructions are for XP so I couldn't find out how to disable it.

In Win7
Go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Uncheck "Automatically restart" and then click on OK twice to exit the dialog.
The next time it gives you a BSOD it'll stop on that screen.
You'll have to push the power button in order to shut it down completely.

It sounds like you are runningWindows 7 beta - which expired at the end of June 2009.

You will have to install Windows 7 RC (Release Candidate)

Thank you!

Can I upgrade or do I need to clean install?

The latter would make life harder because I'd lose information.

EDIT: Read it on the website, thanks again!

Clean install is highly preferred.
Upgrading a beta to an RC is asking for trouble - you'll bring some of the faults of the beta into the new RC.
