Windows 7: BSOD playing WOW, also on initial restart after BSOD

I think my board might be the issue, when i was installing the first set of ram I got, I had one bad stick and one good stick my luck, but when I was testing one at a time the stick wasnt seated correctly.

I think something might have shorted out, after this I could not use the 1st slot, i just decide to go to slots 3 and 4 when I installed the 2nd pair of ram I got.

I have been following this thread since the beginning and might suggest that you absolutely eliminate one piece of hardware at a time before moving on.


Initially you report memtest errors.

Did you replace the bad stick, did you test each mobo slot with a known good stick, etc.

You are now updating your mobo driver and vid card driver without a definitive answer re RAM and mobo slots.



On another matter we (as you know) need the actual DMP file as it is the only record of the events leading up to the the crash. The text file you uploaded as DMPs wont cut it.


We await your DMP files.

Well just tried fresh installing the motherboard drivers nforce 15.56, when i try to install co processor driver, it causes a BSOD...

nvsmu.sys BSOD everytime...

1st set of ram, checked each stick individually memtest found one to be bad (corsair)
2nd set I bought from newegg, because its taking more than 3 weeks for corsair to sent me replacement, this set found one bad stick also using memtest (kingston)
3rd set was sent to me from newegg, ran 7 full cycles of memtest no errors recorded. Got BSOD within 30min playing WOW.

I am discounting the drivers from June through September as your machine is no longer configured the same.

Did both memory stick that were fail in the same mobo slot?

They might have been, thats why i moved the last set into slots 3 and 4 to make sure it wasnt just a bad slot. But one of the sticks even when i put in in slot 3 would not boot the system at all, this was on the 2nd set (kingston).

Sometimes memory is really finicky, requiring matched sticks, bumping the voltage a tic, running it at less than rated speed.

If the first set showed a bad stick, and the second set did I would suspect the mobo but am unsure.
