how do i do that, exactly?

if so, that's fine, but what made it happen in the first place? how do i avoid replicating this?

and just in general, how do i go about turning on a new install and getting all of the drivers updated and KNOWING they are all up to date?

lots of warnings and error messages, the history of what's gone wrong with this thing...what would you like to see?

I'm also thinkin it's a memory issue. Use stock ram timings and stock voltage. if stock voltage is still giving you bsods, bump it up one notch. also, try running your ram at a slower speed (ie 1600CL9-->1333CL8 with slightly tighter timings).

leave everything else on default and enable cpu and NB load line calibration

**also please update your system specs so we can know what you're using**

The stock settings are the ones that the computer naturally uses, right? I haven't touched BIOS, or adjusted any hardware settings. Never have before either, so I'd need a little help doing that.

sorry about the system specs...they should be below my posts now?

Yeah... go into your bios.

AI tweaker:
Cpu Multiplier: 16x (or 3200mhz)
FSB: 200
DRAM frequency: 1333mhz
NB: 2000mhz
HT Link: 2000mhz

Go to: DRAM timings
Set your manufacturer's recommended timings probably 7-7-7-21-auto-28 @ 1t
Go back to AI tweaker:
Cpu voltage: auto
NB voltage: auto
DRAM voltage: (manufacturer's recommended *usually 1.65 but you should check). Sometimes putting another (+) notch on the voltage helps (1.66v usually)

Scroll down till you see "cpu load line calibration" and "nb load line calibration" enable them
Disable CPU spread spectrum

Go to CPU configuration:
disable C1e
disable cool n quiet (if it's there)
Try that out and report.

To test your RAM, download and make a cd with Memtest86+ on it. Then boot from that CD.

It sounds a lot like the RAM problem i had before, you got another kit of RAM lying around? is your RAM pushed all the way in?

I couldn't find FSB to change it, same went for the spread spectrum...they just weren't listed. If those are necessary to change, please let me know, and how to.

Otherwise, it seems to be much more stable. It froze once while I was playing fallout, but I don't know what causes a freeze, so that could have been unrelated.

So far, those tricks worked. Thanks.

do not overclock. do not even change ur bios settings. set ur bios setting to default and set all attributes to Auto or disable. from my experience, overclocking causes BSOD, harddisk crashes, random application not loading properly from startup and sound related cracking issues at high sampling rate.
