Have you ran MemTest yet? That'll help narrow things down

Here's the download: http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

put it on a bootable media device, choose to boot from it during start up and it'll do it's job

Thank you for the link, and ESPECIALLY the "how-to" on that. I will get this going and post what it finds.

Thanks.

Ok. I am a complete knob when it comes to MemTest.

I have it on a CD, and have booted it already from it with the test starting.

What am I looking for?

I ran it once for a long time, and it didn't note anything under the "errors" section where it says it, but I think it did freeze. I could be wrong - might of been impatient.

A pointer as to how I should go about a MemTest would be great.

Sorry I was out of town this past week.


Thanks, Steve

My computer will no longer load. Does not go into BIOS/BOOT, just sits and idles with nothing happening.


Someone please help me out.

Ok. Just got home, and after about 7 hours since it last did not want to boot, in now does.

Ran MeMTest right off the first BOOT and it stopped with a bunch of:

fffEEfffEE's.

Is there a way I can copy/paste that image the next time it catches those things so I can post it here?


Thanks, Steve.

-EDIT-
Most of the time MemTest freezes on me.

looks like you have some faulty ram on your hands, try to run memtest with only one stick of ram in, and try a different slot too, if you are lucky it might just be the RAM slots you are using. if not it will be time to RMA that ram you have. did you go in to your bios and down clock your ram and/or set it to the stock speed and timings manually?

I once kept getting blue screens all the time with my last rig. Turns out, it was the hdd to blame. How crazy is that! Try different hdd completely.

Edit: Just try it. Rule it out. if it does in fact rule out, i would focus back onto the memory.

if memtest is failing then it has noting to do with the HDD

Umm,you might want to verify your RAM is set to the right settings first.this could all be caused by incorrect voltage/timings.Set your RAM voltage to 1.65v,RAM to 1600MHz(probabably the 1:4 divider).The run memtest.You also may need a little CPU/NB voltage to run overclocked RAM.1.35v should be a safe bump to eliminate any IMC issues-which will give you the sam errors as memory faults.

Ok guys. Thanks for the replies, and please bare with me replying back as I am very busy as it is, and trying to fix my rig is kind of in the back burner in life right now.


I went out to Fry's and bought a new set of Kingston Ram. And behold, I was still bluescreening.

In the past 30 minutes I have bluescreened about 12 times just trying to leave a comment here for you. I have taken out one of the Rams, and left only one in the A1 slot of my mobo(listed on the first post). So far, I have not bluescreened. This is all with the new Kingston Ram. (15 day full return, even if open so I am not worried) I will systematically test my original Ram too(listed on first page) to see if it even was a faulty Ram or faulty Ram-slot.

Something I have noticed. The B1 slot dongle-clip that "snaps" ram into place when inserted is broken. It does not have that secure "snap" function anymore. Could this be THE problem?

-I will do everything advised here. I will double check my voltages with the Kingston brand. I will run MemTest on the one Ram slot. I will check to see if it is any other component as time goes on.


Hypothetically, if it is my Ram slot that is the issue, what do I do then? RMA the MOBO? And is it safe to say I will find out if it IS my Ram-slot failing if I go ahead after checking the A1 slot, plug the Ram into the B1 slot and it begins bluescreening?

Again, THANK YOU! for all your input guys. To much money and time has gone into this, so I will let everyone know the outcome when it is found and resolved for someone else who runs into my problem.

Regards, Steve.
