Getting SERIOUS amounts of BSOD's...need help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been getting BSOD's like crazy over the past week and am unsure what my problem is. I've run overall system tests and at first my memory failed but after trying some things I realized it only fails when my memory is in the first yellow RAM slot. I get BSOD's in Vista and XP. I musta re-installed Windows 5 times already. I'm leaning towards thinking it's the motherboard or CPU because after having my CPU OC'd to 3.53 for over a month now, if I reset all my settings to stock, I can't boot to windows. Only way I can boot to windows is to increase my vcore. Any ideas of what could be my problem or what steps I should take to diagnose it? I'm a PC Tech so I've been doing a decent amount myself but I'm still fairly new to OC'ing so I'm not too sure what could be my problem here.

Are you using the board in your sig? If so try these steps in order:

1: unplug power supply from wall, and board. reset CMOS. Give it a try.
2: If 1 does not work see if there are new bios available. If so flash them.

I had this same problem with my P4 3.0Ghz at 3.75 for a couple months. The bios flash is actually what fixed it.

from what you say it seems like a mobo problem. try flashing bios, etc. if that does not work you may have to rma your board

Well I have the newest BIOS, so idk what flashing would do. I'll try resetting the CMOS though. Should i put my RAM back in slots 1 and 3 after resetting the CMOS to see if I'm still getting errors?

Cleared the CMOS and that seems to have worked for now. I'm still confused as to what my problem was though.
