Windows 7: BSOD after waking computer up

The problem is most likely the RAM. It could be the board or the PSU, as well.

Do you have a website for your motherboard? It should have a Qualified Vendor List (QVL) for the RAM and CPU.

It doesn't have a vendor list, but only information on the type and speed that the motherboard supports. Here is the link below to the motherboard, which I linked in my last post.

Motherboard Specifications, IPIBL-LB (Benicia) - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

The PSU is about two years old, Corsair CX500. It's paried with a EVGA GTS 250 GPU, I don't think it could have gone out so quickly :S (But things like that can happen.)
I hope it isn't the board, it is no longer being made and sold.

Oh sorry, I missed it because it was just the word "this"; my mistake. Your best bet is to find a guaranteed set of RAM from RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com by selecting HP as your manufacturer and entering in your model to your HP.


I took the liberty of doing this for you by using the system info file provided in your jcgriff report in your first post:

Computer memory upgrades for HP - Compaq Pavilion a6433w Desktop/PC from Crucial.com


I would recommend that you stick to the 800 MHz modules since the motherboard site does not show 1066 MHz as being supported. These two would work.

Awesome, thanks! I'll go with the 2x2 kit just in case one of the motherboard slots has been causing the problems. I've tested the RAM and the slots, but it kept running fine every time I would try to see what was wrong with it >:|
I hope these will help fix the problem, if not the only things left that can be causing this is the Mobo or the PSU.
The reason I am not blaming the GPU is because I ran the computer without my GPU just to see how things went. No later then 20 minutes later and it froze up D: (Since there was no GPU to sap the PSU, I am also considering taking the PSU out of the possibility as well.)

Now I know I probably should just start fresh and build a new computer, but I need the job for the money and i'm stuck with what I've got XD
Can't wait to rid myself of this burden. Planning on making a build with the new i5 ivy bridge cpu, gtx 680 gpu, 8GB Mushkin blackline RAM, Corsair HX750 (for future sli) and the AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 mobo ^.^ (can only dream for now)

Those look like good steps with the GPU and PSU. Let us know how the system runs with the new RAM once you get it. Best wishes that resolves it.

I haven't gotten the new RAM in the mail yet, but I just realized that when the computer freezes, all of my things connected to it seems to go dead. Like my mouse, the red laser in the bottom of it is suddenly off. My Xbox 360 controllers little green halo also goes blank.
Things on the screen also freeze up, such as sound or movement. But could my appliances winking out of life mean anything?

We should probably wait until the RAM gets to you to see if that is what the problem is. It is hard to say if devices turning off means anything beyond the system is trying to shut itself down and fails to do so. Everything shutting down could indicate a PSU failure or other hardware failure; hardware is difficult to debug based on symptoms alone. That's one of the reasons many of the crashes and debugging threads end up being so long and some never are resolved. Debugging hardware over the internet is rather painstaking and requires a lot of patience on the part of the user asking for help. Frankly, it can also require some luck.

I have another question, is it possible for temperature to be a factor in this. My house is usually cold from the temperatures out doors. When I switch the computer on in the mornings could the processor be generating enough heat to cause some of the metal parts on it, the heat sink, or other possible areas in the case to fog up and then condensate enough to make a drop?
I'm pretty sure water would destroy it if that did happen, but it's a theory o.O

I have never heard of condensation causing issues in systems due to temperature variance. Not to say it isn't possible, but I would think it is highly unlikely. The only temperature likelihood is overheating temperatures. You can run some hardware checks, if you like:

Idle CPU temps: 35C
Idle GPU temps: 45C

CPU under use: 50C
GPU under use: 75-80C

I haven't run the CPU stress test yet, will do it tonight.
