Getting hardware error on regular basis
Hi Austin Chapman,
It may be possible that some of you hardware components in your system does not supports x64 OS. Try to go back to x86 and confirm if the OS is the problem. If it is, I'd suggest you should keep your x86 OS only.
Otherwise if you are sure that you system can support x64, it may be possible that all your drivers are not updated. Try updating your BIOS and drivers completely and then see if the error occurs. For updating BIOS follow the instruction provided on the manufacturer's site for your BIOS. Do this safely.
If possible you can also test your RAM and HDD for errors and problems. You can use any one of the available boot CDs available free on the internet for this purpose.
Finally all the above fails, I suggest you should check every hardware components individually for errors and find the one that shows error.
Hope this helps!!!!
