BSOD troubles

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got the popular 30nm Samsung RAM, but my computer has crashed with 6+ BSOD messages in the last 3 days, since I installed the new RAM. I'm using my signature rig aside from the RAM, I only have the 2x4 Samsung installed. I can usually get Windows to run after a few restarts, and Windows usually stays up for a while. 8GB is recognized by the BIOS and Windows. I have the RAM on auto at 1600-11-11-11-28-1T, I'm not sure how many volts. I have CPU-Z and CPU Tweaker installed if you could use anything from them.

The first error was BAD_POOL_HEADER, I didn't see the exceptions and there wasn't a dmp.
The second was IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, about an hour after restarting. "The bugcheck was: 0x0000000a (0xfffffa7fffffffd0, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000001, 0xfffff80002eab6bc)."
I didn't see the third, it happened on the 3rd day, about 50 hours after the second BSOD.
The the fourth was SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. "The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff8800418f745, 0xfffff88005bfe698, 0xfffff88005bfdef0)."
The fifth was 0x00000024 (0x00000000001904fb, 0xfffff880089f6b78, 0xfffff880089f63d0, 0xfffff80002edaec4), but I believe the blue screen was the same as 7e.

I think there was at least one more after the third, but I don't remember what happened and I can't find it in Event Viewer.

I was able to get a mini dump of "IRQL," which is 300KB, but the last two are MEMORY.dmp and are 745 and 400MB. I can send them to you upon request.

The last 3 times, including the latest phantom BSOD, were during Skyrim. If it helps: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I was taking Whiterun with the Stormcloaks. The first time I just made it into the city, but the with last two I barely started the speech.
I was using about 48-50% RAM according to the usage readings.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

When you say "your not sure how many volts". This could be the key issue.

I know Gskill tend run at low volts, usually 1.5v. Your new RAM may run at 1.65v. If this is the case then your BIOS may still be set to 1.5v from your previous RAM.

I would find out what your BIOS is set at and what your RAM should run at first.

Your first BSOD code (0x0a) means unstable RAM. Your second (0x7e) means corrupted OS file which could very easily be caused by unstable memory.

This has been my past two weeks. I'd read this if I were you. Bad RAM is no fun.
