Blender crashes constantly and while loading saved files

I am a noob trying to learn how to use blender, but it keeps crashing! It will work for a bit, then i’ll click one of the eyes to hide something then it crashes. i’ll try to open the last save then it will also crash. I am about to go crazy haha. my computer consists of 2 gtx 280s, i5 2500k, 8GB 1600 DDR3 RAM, and I am using windows 7. I have my latest vid card drivers, and I tried using older versions of blender but it also crashes. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I have already updated my video card drivers and what-not…

they are updated already :frowning:
