Vista 64 Blue Screen

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Sup all! Got an issue here.. System specs in my sig..

Ok so system is running sweet.. Vista 64 is working great..

I decided to order 2 more gis of ram.. SAME ram I already have in there. $31 bucks cant beat it.

So ram arrives today. I decided to toss em in. I pul 1 stick in. So I had |Old|New|Old|Empty

System is now bluescreening right as Vista starts to load.. I get the Microsoft Vista with loading bar below.. that does not complete come up.. still slightly grayed out than it blue screens. Every single time. Its to fast to read as well.. Now heres whats I have done to try and fix.

I have booted with 1gig at a time all 4 sticks. I have booted 2gigs at a time in slots 1 and 3 as well as slots 2 and 4.

As soon as I toss a 3rd gig in it blue screens.

Now I have installed this update.. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929777/
Did not work.

I have tried playing with timings and voltage.. I manualy set timing to 4-4-4-12 and I have also tried setting voltage in ranges from 1.95-2.10 Still nothing

To sum up: Ram is good, slots are good.. soon as I goto 3gigs it blue screens.

ANY Ideas are appreciate.. I have even re-intalled vista 64. so...

Edit: Updated Bios to latest version.. also tried timings of 5-5-5-15.. still blue screening..

One thing that's worth looking at is the chipset voltage. Go to your BIOS and give it a few bumps to see if that helps. I'm willing to bet that's the cause....the MCH isn't getting enough voltage for the increased load from more memory capacity.
Then try this:
Make note of each individual stick of RAM any way you can (serial #s plus marker dots, etc.) and test each stick individually using HCI Memtest x86
If you've already done that then go ahead and test in pairs in the different slots......
Set the voltage to a little lower than the higher end of the spec range for the DIMMs. Set the timings loose and the speed close to DDR2-800.

Do you get the BSOD in safe mode? Press F8 repeatedly to test this......

Also it's worth noting that I've installed Vista x64 and run it fine with both the P35 and X38 chipsets with 2x2Gb and 4x1Gb memory configurations....

You might want to also make sure that you don't need any BIOS updates or chipset drivers to run 4Gb of RAM. Go ahead and check your chipset driver dates with dxdiag (or device manager) and get the latest drivers to make sure......

Which setting would be the chipset voltage?

I have test each ram individually.. all good.. havent tested in sets.. but is that realllly needed lol

Ok heres the BSOD message..

A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to protect your computer.

If this is the first time you have seen this screen.... restart.

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with manufacture for driver updates. Try changing your video adapter.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable bios menu options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable any componets, restart and press F8 and to enter the Advanced Options and select Safe Mode.

TECH INFO:
*** Stop: 0c0000007E (0xFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF80001A6BE3C, 0xFFFFF9800012FDA08, 0xFFFFF980012FD3E0)

i was having a similar problem. didnt really do anything to fix mine. everytime i hit load or 100% cpu usage my memory would freak. didnt happen with 2 gigs..but with 4. so i did all the updates for windows and other hardware and games/apps... reset the bios to default. booted it up. let it setup. shut it down. installed the last 2 gigs.. reconfigured my oc. works fine. idk what cause it or fixed. but worth a try.

Try all 4 sticks, they are tested in pairs.

If that doesn't work when you reboot go into the bios and try much looser timings, 5-5-5-18 @800 mhz and 2.1 volts.
