Blue Screens and under-performance

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Recently, I replaced my EVGA motherboard with the Asus Maximus III Formula (Intel 1156). Since I got it up and running I've been running into some very odd issues.

1) Windows will start to load, then it'll crash and say one of three things in the Blue Screen:
- MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
- BAD_POOL_HEADER
- PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

2) After the blue screen happens, if I switch off my PSU and wait for mobo lights to turn off then turn the computer back on, it tells me that a new CPU has been installed and that I need to enter setup.

3)I have started lagging really hard in my online video games but have seen no drop in performance in benchmarks and stress tests once I get the machine up and running.

Based on these symptoms it seems like I have a driver issue but have, as of yet, been unable to pinpoint which one is at fault.

I've attempted debugging the mini-dump files, but am having a rough time finding the correct "symbols" (?).

Things I've tried:

Memtest for 4+ hours
Prime95 for 8+ hours
Updating the BIOS
Updating Chipset/GFX/Networking drivers
Reseating CPU

Any help would be appreciated

My setup (for reference):
Asus Maximus III Formula 1156 Mobo
Intel Core i5-760 @ stock
6 GB G.Skill RAM @1333MHz
Corsair 650w PSU
Asus ATi Radeon HD 5870
Turtle Beach Riviera Sound card
Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler

Did you just take out the old motherboard and put in the new one? If so that is your problem.

Well, I mean, I reinstalled Windows and therefore all of my drivers. Is there something else I should have done?

Also I should have mentioned that after I reset the PSU the computer works perfectly fine until I turn it off again

Ok that is good. So I am guessing you weren't having these problems on the EVGA board and you are using all the same hardware as before (except the motherboard of course)? If that is the case I would swing towards a bad motherboard since you have done memtest and prime with no errors and weren't having these issues before.

Thats what I was afraid of. Even though after I get the computer up and running it runs fine, you still feel like it's a bum mobo?

Well since you did prime 95 and memtest that should eliminate a cpu or ram fault. Only components left are PSU, motherboard and Graphics card. I dont think a failing hard drive would cause this. You could try stress testing your graphics card with furmark or whatever. You can also check your power supply to see if its putting out the correct voltage. If both of those check out fine, I would reinstall the EVGA board if it is still working fine and see if you get the same problems. If not then Return the ASUS for a new one.
