There was a user with similar problems a few months back who replaced the graphics card to resolve it. Before you replace the graphics card, there are some steps to try:


"Use an ink eraser or an electrical contact treatment, available at electronics supply stores, to ensure adapter card contacts are clean" (Bug Check 0x7A: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR).

As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Well when I went to check on my desktop for any update it would not turn on. On my POST screen there was a faint, and spotty red bar going across the far left and the middle of the screen. I haven't tried to clean it yet as I already came back from town today, but I'll get some tomorrow. Anyway when try logging on the windows logo on the black screen (in the middle) has the red bar go across the right half and after it is done the computer crashes but does not result in a blue screen.

Could be due to a dirty contact. Could also indicate a failing graphics card. We'll know more once you have a chance to clean it.

Sorry I was very busy yesterday and wasn't able to give you a update. I plugged in his video card (a Nvidia 520 don't remember what else it was) and it started right up with no issues. I cleaned the contacts and tried mine again and had the the same results as before. From there his brother just reccomended that I buy a new card (He apparently knows about this kind of stuff, I'd never met him before.) Since it wasn't starting past the bios in any mode.

I agree with the brother. Let us know when you have a chance to replace it and what the results are. Best of luck!

I am thinking it is the RAM. XMP technology is designed for Intel based hardware and does not play well with AMD hardware. See about swapping it for non-XMP RAM.

I found that out yesterday from one of our hardware experts, James 7679.
