BSOD everyday especially when gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
the bsod cose is 0x000000fA. i checked what the code is and it is hardware failure. im not sure why im having this bsod code, and error code 98 when turning on the PC. im not sure if the ram is the problem coz i ran the memtest for an hour and it passed. also the ram is running at 1333mhz instead of 1600 and the voltage is below 1.50 also..

2 days ago, i swapped my ram to my bro's pc, when i turned it on it made 2 beeps and error code 98. i turned on like 5 times and same thing happened. do you think the kingston ram is not supported by the motherboard? or should i get the recommended ram for the sandy bridge mobo (p67).. i've read that its ok use 1.60v ram in the p67 mobo..

pc specs is
i5 2500k
msi p65a-ud65
kingston hyperx 4gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104141

9600 gt sli (will upgrade this week)

Take CMOS battery out. Unplug the PC. Wait 5 minutes and take a breather.

Put CMOS battery back in. Plug in the PC. Turn on and try to reach the desktop.

If you reach the desktop, try to play a game that the error usually happens on.

If the error fails to show itself, then it was a BIOS user configuration error that was made. Otherwise, the RAM may be the culprit in question.

i can still able to reach desktop but the problem is BSOD when gaming.. sometimes i have to turn on twice the pc coz' the first boot will get error code 98. And i have to turn it off and turn on again then i will boot.. i will try what you said maybe it will work

what is cmos btw? it is the battery? i watched this
