Is this power supply bad? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
Currently the system seems to be running without the 4550 in it, but the video display signal has issues. kind of hard to explain, but it has a kind of ripple effect going through it. i did also swap out the CPU with a celeron i had lying around. could too much on the 3.3v do anything to the CPU? i was under the impression that the main things powered by 3.3v were Northbridge/IGP/RAM stuff.......
it has run at least 2-3 memtest86 passes just fine, but it only seemed to crash while in windows (perhaps RAM+GFX, a problem based in the Northbridge?)

It may be helpful to have the crash dumps from your bsod's analyzed.

Many times these files will have information on what specifically caused the bsod and this could help you narrow down your search.

Usually bad ram will not run through full passes of memtest86+ but its not unheard of for it to take awhile. usually bad sticks will light up like the 4th of july with errors. Im assuming you are running the boot version of memtest as there are 2 different programs. The one which runs in windows is not as good.

I do not know if anyone on this site analyzes minidump files.

If you cannot find anyone here then

At http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/ follow the bsod posting instructions.

Good luck!

*EDIT*
there are some users who may be able to help in the operating system section. If not use the site I referenced, they have always been very helpful Hope this helps
