Windows 7: Constant Random BSODs on a 5 days old system

02 Sep 2010   #81

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM

Great, or not Results:
With just one ram stick, I played starcraft 2 for 2 hours no problemo.

So it seems to be a ram issue I guess? I could test the other ram stick aswell. But @Zipsi how could I solve this? Buy 2 extra ram sticks?

Or is it a motherbord issue, by not supplying enough voltage or something?

Try playing with only the other stick in. If you get BSODs, we can figure it's a bad stick, in which case you should purchase or RMA a new kit.

try gaming an hour with 1 stick only, if nothing happens.. do the same with other stick.. if thats okay too then I guess they don't communicate well. You could try putting them in asynchronous mode in bios, then they wont try to "compete" against eachother and cause bsods.

Since I no longer have the Gigabyte 770, I can't give you exact step-by-step instructions on how to raise the voltages in the BIOS. However, you should be able to ID the parameters by going into CPU/Memory section, probably in the Advance category, and deselecting the auto controls for these items.

The Northbridge voltage, if memory serves me correctly is auto-set at 1.1V; Raise it manually to 1.2V (a Gigabyte technician suggested this to me over the phone). The PCIx, RAM, and CPU core voltages would all be adjusted manually in a similar fashion. Try raising your RAM to 1.6V (stock is 1.5V) and increase the PCIx and Vcor voltages in small increments (0.02-0.05V) in-till the system becomes stable.

Also, if you're clocking your RAM to 1600, I would recommend relaxing it to 1333 at 9-9-9-24 timings for testing purposes until to achieve system stability.

If those tests still BSOD, it's clear it's the mobo I guess. If those pass, it's almost sure it's the GPU. Although if these cards decide that the inadequate power is enough, i'll still not be able to find the cause.

Could you help me with a little tutorial/link on how to raise those voltages?
I Added a screen from SIW with my voltages. But I think it's not on there...

And do you have a link from the topic/email where the gigabyte guys suggested it?

Now I really don't know what to do xD:
I Played Starcraft with the other ram stick. Really fine, a little slow(just like with the other stick), but no crashes or what ever.

So I was satisfied and decided to quit starcraft and let you guys know. Only Starcraft wouldn't shutdown, so I CTRL ALT DEL'ed it and ended the process, at that moment My PC BSODed.
What do you guys think? I think it could either be a mobo issue, something with voltages, or a ram issue, something with either channels or the fact that 2 ram sticks doesn't work.
What can I do to test either? Put the mem into different channels, not enableling dual channel? Buy an extra set RAM and test with 4? RMA something, either mobo or ram, raise voltages or something, or buy a new mobo?


Just had a crash, after posting this, during browsing etc, Perhaps this is a bad memory stick...
I'm leaving for home for the weekend, should I turn memtest on for the weekend, or should I bring the ram home and send it RMA to the company I got it from? In that case, they will have to find the problem too, otherwise they'll just return it and demand 20,-

Another crash, I mailed both GEIL and the company who sold the RAM to me to see what their idea is

Returning the RAM or motherboard may be necessary, there are a couple of things to check and try first.

I don't recommend running memtest86+ or Prime95 for that long.

What were the CPU temperatures during the tests?
D/L and run Core Temp during any testing and/or gaming until this issue is resolved.

Let's try adjusting the north bridge voltage (NB).

First down load and run CPUZ, post a snip of the memory and SPD tabs.
For snipping tool, start button> in the search box enter 'Snipping tool'>enter
How to Post a Screenshot in Seven Forums

Down load your motherboard manual: GA-770TA-UD3 Manual

Read the '2-3 MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)' page 38, and 'System Voltage Optimized' page 42, sections.

When ready, post back with exactly what you have done and any questions you might have.

Thanks for the fast reply, I fear that I don;t understand the snipping thing, but here are the memory and spd tabs:

Quick reply.

The windows 7 snipping tool will take a snapshot of the desktop area you select, right click and select the area to copy, save to convenient location.

To open the snipping tool, click the start button, in the search box type 'snipping tool' it will come up on the list, press enter, it will open.

Let me have a look at this and do some checking.

If you have your motherboard manual, read the sections mentioned in the above post.

What BIOS version are you running?
You can check the CPUZ mainboard tab.

I Read the manual, and I can't find the snipping tool xD
Seriously it doesn't come up..

I'll be going home for the weekend, so take your time. I'll be back at Sunday.

btw, you think raising some voltages will help? And won't void any warranties?

Actually Dave, these are the values from with just one, the "correct" RAM stick.
I'll reboot with the 2 sticks in it and post the voltages then, before I leave for home
