My computer sometimes gets BSOD but most of the time it freezes (forever) so I have restart my computer. It sometimes freezes during the start up process and most of the time it freezes when I log into the computer. When my computer restarts after BSOD it usually makes weird beep sounds so I have to turn off the power. After that I have to wait for about 15 mins to actually turn it on again. Rarely, my computer runs smoothly for a whole day.... I started having this problem after a virus attack but now my computer is clean and i still have the problem. Also, rarely during the start up process my monitor goes black so I turn off and on my monitor to see the image again (it happens once, only during start up). I installed a speedfan program to determine the temperature and i found that Core and GPU is overheating (GPU is around 60-50 degrees, and Core is around 40 or 50 I don't really remember). But I never had any problems before the virus attack and BSOD is rarely caused by overheating. Now, I'm suspecting that the cause of all this is RAM...

Things I've tried to fix this problem.
- I tried to reinstall windows but it didn't help
- I did a memory check and it found nothing.
- I fixed all the registries in my PC... didnt help
- did a memory check (found nothing)
- Cleaned up my comp. from dust
- full virus scan with avast
- full scan with malware bytes
- Ran start up recovery thing and it found 0 errors
- Updated BIOS.... didnt help
I'll try clearing CMOS later..

PC specifications:
Using windows 7
Gpu: Nvidia 9800
Processor:Athlon 64 X2 (W) 5200+ 2.6 GHz
RAM: 2gb DDR2
Hard drive: 360GB HDD

Please help.. How do i fix this problem... I almost tried everything i can think of.... Help D=<!!
:upset::upset::upset::upset: My computer is making me crazy..!

BSOD can certainly be caused by overheating.

well done

Just for future reference don't use speedfan to read temperatures as speedfan is designed to read the speed of fans. Use GPU-Z to read the graphic card temps and core temp to read cpu temps (or the bios).
