Please Help:Bluescreens on TRUE install - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Run a thorough memtest. I had a stick of ram die on my a few months back that caused similar problems.

Also I'll agree with setting the board up on a desk or what not to see if it is shorting out. I guess you could also try putting the old HSF on it and see if it makes a difference?

Any recommendations on potential connection problems? Or even just a recommendation to reseat the coolermaster HSF?

Thanks,

I'm guessing you are torquing that TRUE down too much. I did that with my Freezer 7 pro (yes I boltmodded it shoddily) and I got no POST, try lossening it up just a tad and also make sure you have screwed the screws down evenly.

Check your HDD connections, I had something similar with my sata connectors, they're so thin that I accidentally cracked one of the connectors when I was reconnecting to the HDD but it's such a small connection I had to take a flashlight to inspect each and sure enough a little tiny crack was causing the connector to move slightly and disconnect, which resulted in bsods, freezing, other fun stuff.
Lots of good suggestions for troubleshooting here

It seems to me that "overtightening" wouldn't be the issue, only because the temps are fine and it does start up. Also, many people pressure mod their TRUEs and it in fact helps them instead of hurts them.

Current plan: I have pulled all extra peripherals and am running the computer to see what will happen.

Thanks for the suggestion, guys. +rep to all who have suggested solutions.

Here is the update!

The computer will run, and prime95 smallFFTs at great temperatures, but there are seemingly random bluescreens. Everything is at stock. It seems to me it is unlikely to be CPU instability, since, I can run prime95 with no errors. Also, it passed memtest.

The problems are:
1. Random bluescreen in both my vista and xp partitions (separate HDD's)
2. Sometimes freeze on the post screen (before HDD's are checked)

I have checked all the connections, they seem fine. The computer, for the most part runs fine. The problems make me inclined to think it is hardware, but the hardware will run fine most of the time, but with random hiccups.

Could it be that the Power supply is the problem? How would I check?


Thanks for all the help!

It could be the RAM failing also, if those are single-sided ballistix they are know to fail. Run memtest or try running on one stick. You can only really test the PSU by replacing it :/. You can get a multimeter and check that the 12v rails are running within spec.

I would say PSU at this point. You have almost pretty well ruled everything else out. Completely RANDOM BSOD's usually mean PSU failure. Looking at your sig rig....yeah, I'd say PSU failure. XClio aren't exactly known to have quality PSU's. Buy a good one (or test with a known good one), then check back. Also, remove your GTS 512 for now if possible, and try that. If removing your GPU helps solve the issue along with a different test PSU...then yeah, I'd say PSU.
