thanks for all the help.
i havent had a blue screen for the last 10 days.
and since then i did uninstall deamon tools and the msi-kombustor.
i also had driver verifier on for at least 7 of the 10 days.
supose no reason to look for something if it isnt giving me problems! lol

about the memtest, is it normal for it to give errors and then not to give errors?

thanks for all the help so far

i got 2 bsod last night.
the first one was while i was playing Battlefield3.
the sound got distorted and sounded like a sound clip got stuck.
it went on for about 10seconds and then the bsod happened.
it had a description of "Page fault in nonpaged area".

then about 20min later, i was updating StarCraft2 with the latest update and another blue screen struck with the same "Page fault in nonpaged area".

after restarting i ran starcraft2 again, it updated and works.
no blue screens that time.

Is your memory timings correct in the bios? use this tool to check that your memory is set to the right timings.

Post some screen shots of cpu, mainboard, memory, spd and graphics.

a friend suggested its my hard drive or my power supply.

we are swopping out my harddrive for another one over the weekend, will see if i get more bsod's.
but the problem with that is that the bsod happens when ever they want - sometimes 2 or 3 weeks apart.
what test should a perform to stress my pc so that i can force a bsod to occur, instead of waiting 2/3 weeks for it to happend?
or should i just play alot of games?
the last couple of bsod happend while i was playing battlfield3.

if i still get bsod with the other harddrive, we are swopping the power supply.


how can i test the power supply?

If you look at the SPD Tab it shows what your memory timings should be, 4th column along

Frq: 667mhz
CAS latency: 9.0
RAS TO CAS: 9
RAS PRECHARGE:9
tRAS: 24
tRC: 34
COMMAND RATE: 2T
VOLTAGE: 1.6

Check your bios that they are set at them values.

NP, I had this happening to me and it was the voltage, it was set at 1.5v and it needed to be 1.6v

Hopefully this is all it is!!

Good Luck and let us know how you get on.

Thanks David
