So many BSOD's.. why?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've been getting so many BSOD's it's not even funny. I don't know if it's my CPU, my memory, my chipset drivers, my BIOS, my soundcard... I just don't know. All the BSOD's are usually different.. latest one I got was IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

My bios version is the 1203 for my Asus P5N32-E SLI 680i. I just reformatted last night, so everything is fresh. I just don't know why the hell this is happening.

I have my ballistix Crucial on stock settings.. 800MHz @ 4-4-4-12 2T

Everything is running cool.. My drivers are all up to date, except the chipset drivers. These seem to be better. For some reason the new ones don't like my internet connection, and it keeps stalling it on boot up.

My rig specs are in my signature.

Here's screenshots of CPU-Z:





The BSOD's happen when running applications that tend to use lots of resources (I'm guessing). Such as running a game, copying huge files (GB) to other folders, running a program, etc.

My CPU is on stock right now because I don't know what the hell is affecting it

Maybe it's my memory timings? Or something else

Thanks for your input guys.

What volts are you running your ram at? If your ram is at default, you will need to increase it to achieve those timings.

Download Memtest86, burn it to a floppy or CD (depending on the version you downloaded), and boot from it. If you see any red, you got bad RAM (or need to adjust its voltage or lower timings or something).

If everything is stable then it's a driver issue.

Well I just took out the RAM stick furthest away from the CPU. Ran games, and everything.. been "stable" for about 30 minutes now. Longest it's been since install.

Could that mean that my timings are off? Or that one stick is bad?

My VID is 1.25v

My memory voltage is 2.2v.

I'll run the memtest later tonight, since that takes hours.

In the meantime, am I showing any symptoms of obvious issues?

Sounds like RAM problems. Try boot one at a time and run with one stick. It may cause by one bad stick. I had that problem before.

Try switching every hardware out and use different ports, also could it be your PSU? quads and nvidia chipsets use alot of power. Also if you have a friend ask him to lend you his parts, maybe its a bad part inside one of your hardware
