Windows 7: BSOD with new ram.

BSOD with new ram.

I recently upgraded from 2x2gb OCZ3G16004GK which runs at 1.9v to 4x4gb Kingston ram that runs at 1.65v. I didn't change any Bios settings initially and I got BSOD. Then I did memtestx86 and got no errors over 2 passes.

After that, I went into my bios and changed the ram settings to run at 1600Mhz and 1.65v and still receive BSOD.

BSOD happens after about an hour at idle or instantly when trying to install something. Initially, I would get BSOD from trying to install automatic updates, then I reformatted and can't install any drivers without BSOD.

All my files for SF Diagnostic Tool are attached. Thanks if anybody could help me out with this problem.

Hi astang, Welcome to Seven Forums.
To help all of us would you please add your systems specs? Here's how: System Info - See Your System Specs
Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add desktop or laptop and whether self built.

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to your specs page in your profile right from the specs application.


What are the specs and model number of the new Kingston RAM?
You may have to set your RAM timing to stock too. Memtest should run a minimum of 7 passes to insure a good set. Any errors, stop the test.

Does you motherboard support 16GB?

KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX is the new RAM installed into an MSI 970A-G46. It does support 16gb.

I just noticed that the Diagnostic tool files weren't in the zip folder. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the computer right now and I'll update that information later. I do however have a copy of the last .dmp file

One thing to try is swap the DIMMs in different slots. did you set the timings to 9-9-9-27, freq to 1600?
Try changing your CPU NB to 1.2V. I'm suspecting it has something to do with the new RAM since that's when the BSODs started. I'm now qualified to read those reports, but others may look in.

One other thing to try is to set the board to defaults, but set your boot priorities and see if that helps.

astang,
Help us to help you. this is a two-way street.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Ř Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
Ř ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

Unfortunately, I don't have .NET framework since I reformatted so System Info blue screens me. However, I did run the system diagnostic tool before I reformatted and I finally was able to get a copy of that attached.

Anybody have any idea? I don't think it's a RAM problem anymore. I tested my old RAM sticks that I know for a fact worked before. I haven't touched this computer in almost 3 months and I was having problems with the 7800GT on it before. Could it possibly be a failing GPU?

Hi,

Did you follow Britton's advice and run MemTest86+ for at least 7 passes?

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

On the brand new RAM i ran 7 passes without fail. With the old ram that I am now using because I have had this computer running with this RAM before, I haven't run memtest on since I removed them and since then, they were fine as well. I'll re-run the old RAM again now but even still, the new RAM also gives me BSOD and can run 7 passes.

I'm ran a total of 9 passes over night with no problem. Seems like my GPU memory modules could be the problem? I'm getting BSOD about 2-3 minutes after startup now. I was trying to run OCCT but I don't have enough time to even download the file before it blue screens. It seems that the colder the startup temps are, the longer I have before i get a BSOD. Any ideas? BTW I hate the new MSI UEFI Bios.
