I have a Dell Dimension 8200 with 1GB of Ram. The unit was running Win7. I had to perform a complete re-install of Win7 due to a Virus.
After installing Win 7 and performing all of the Windows updates, I get the BSOD when using Internet Explorer.
The PC then shuts down and reboots.
Any troubleshooting tips would be great.
Please post the bsod error so that we can help you provide a resolution.
I did not see the BSOD yesterday, however I did notice that when IE 11 is open, my CPU and Memory are almost maxed out. Granted it's only 1GB of Ram which is the max for this.
I have already increased the Virtual Memory to just about 3 times of the Ram.
The machine came with XP, but I do not have license for that any longer, Thinking of going back to Win 2000, just for performance purposes.
Good point. I left Win7 on it and ran CCleaner and did a Disk Defrag. I kept IE 11 open and online and have not had a re-occurrence of the BSOD.
IE runs a bit slow, due to Ran limitations, but seems ok for now.
All other programs open and close just fine.
Will continue to monitor.
