ISSUE

My computer worked fine for about 2months. It then began to bluescreen on me. My PCI network adapter failed on me.

Friend, who is an IT guy, swung by the house and did his thing in BIOS. Clean reboot, updated everything, clean drivers. Network adapter worked again. His idea: Because I had, at the time, a USB2.0 device in a USB3.0 slot, which in this ASUS model MOBO also shares with the same connect area for the PCI network adapter, that this could have caused both my computer to blue screen, and my adapter to fail.

He managed to fix the network adapter, permanently, but not the blue screen/freezing issue.

Just two days ago, I went onto Newegg.com and looked at the comment sections regarding the ram that I purchased, and the MOBO that I have. Two comments left stated that the MOBO instructions for RAM placement were incorrect for my specific MOBO, and that I should move them.

Now, up until then, they were positioned as follows:
|CPU|RAM|Empty|RAM|Empty|
After reading two comments suggestion that I move my ram to the two furthest slots from the CPU:
|CPU|Empty|Empty|RAM|RAM|

I have seen a significant improvement in my CPU. I do not get as many bluescreens of death as I did before.

I use to get them several times. At least 6-10 times per use. Now, I have only gotten 1 freeze, and two blue screens in the past 2 days.


I am at a loss guys. I am looking at my MOBO user manual and I don't even see my ram listed under their "qualified" ones. On top of that, I never initially tried the "MEMOK" button function which I suppose could of helped in this issue from the gecko.

Regardless, any help from you all would be awesome.

What is it you want help with? I don't think this has anything to do with your hard drive or SSD.

Error, I was looking for someone who may have had this problem presented to them in the past to point me in the right direction, or has had some kind of similar PC symptom diagnosed and cured.

I was not sure where to post this issue exactly; where should I?

Well first off is your rig overclocked? if it is either reset your cmos and go back to default because if may be an unstable oc you can fix later. If you've done that then run MemTest and see if your memory is erroring or not

My PC is not over clocked, but I will download MemTest and run it to see if my memory is erroring or not.

from a quick glance i would say it is your RAM and Mobo not communicating well, the Mobo accepts 1333 ram then you OC it from there to get up to 2000, the ram you have in it is 1600, you may have to manually set it down to 1333 so the Mobo can keep up, i could be completely wrong but from what i understand and from a quick glance that is my vote, i dont know much about ram myself (i only built my first system this summer) so good luck my friend and welcome to OCN

Everything you said makes sense, and I will look into it through the powers of Google and network of friends/school colleagues.

I hope someone else can elaborate/affirm or simply reply to what you have said in my specific situation. What you say makes sense: one not compatible with another, but manually making it so. In the end, I hope that can be an easy fix.


Thanks HotHead

write down the 0x000000### number next BSOD and tell us what it says. Can't really help without the error code.

Here is one that I have written down.

STOP: 0X0000001E
(0xfffffffc0000005, 0xffff8000307H565, 0X000000000000, 0XFFFFFFFFF)


Please excuse that I may not have the correct number of "F's, and "0's".

I will say that what I can remember my friend telling me was that I was coming up with two different types of errors. One, if I can remember, was PCI or "Device Driven" while the other I can not recall. But neither, that I am 95% sure of, were RAM related.

I am trying to get a hold of him to confirm what he knows from his attempt.

A few things to note:
1) Crash dumps are not always ever completed at bluescreens. Sometimes they freeze, sometimes they hit 100%
2) Only once have I seen an error at boot where it read "unable to find memory/or read disk" something like that.
3) PC has froze on boots.
4) PC has froze after boot.
