Windows 7: Random BSOD

It will likely need to be in msconfig and set to Automatic. But every printer is slightly different so it's good to test it.

After reinstall I always scan the logs to resolve repeat errors, check System Resources, search for Problem solutions, Generate a System Health Report as shown in these basic Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7
to bookmark.

mp1cass0 you are doing great so far. Take your time, step at a time. Remember this is a computer work computer. I'm assuming that means it important for work and for play.

Thanks! All the help has been extremely appreciated! So far, no BSOD's. Have to move memory sticks and run memtest overnight on other slots. Will report back tomorrow.

Good work so far, glad to hear it's more stable.
Good that all four cores are working.

The Intel XMP settings are on the RAM cards, from the manufacturer, same as the JEDEC settings. There is no BIOS setting for it in an AMD system.
Some RAM manufacturers say their RAM is good for both Intel and AMD systems, in some cases this is not true. Have seen many RAM issues with these dual compatible designs, most causing problems for the AMD systems.

Did you change the RAM frequency setting after taking the snips of CPUZ?
It's showing 733 MHz.
If you change the BIOS settings from Auto to Manual you should be able to see the voltages. If your system is stable now this won't be necessary.

Let us know the results of memtest86+.

I changed the RAM to 1333mHz in BIOS. Originally had been on auto but set manually. Will double check later tonight.

Would you suggest I switch the RAM out? It seems most of my problems have been memory related and wondering if switching them out would give me benefit. Keep reading about people RMA'ing their memory because of XMP problems. Will know next time...buy Intel or follow ONLY what my MOBO manufacturer states, if AMD.

Sorry for being a little late getting this CPU-Z photo up but shows memory at proper clock speed now. Slowly starting to add programs in. Only have around 10-12 I keep on here, most being photo, video, or audio related or documents such as PDF and open office.

Looks good.

I would test this RAM for a while, if you start having more crashes then you can consider changing the RAM. Sometimes a little adjustment to the settings will make it stable.
Let us know the progress, and if you have any questions.

Is that Java's autoupdater disabled in your MSConfig screenshot? If so, make sure you have a plan in place to manually update it as needed. Or better yet, uninstall if you don't require it.

All I need is SDK - Android phone. Will get it fixed later today. Kids out of school Tuesday and one home yesterday so no time.

No problems with memory as of yet. Out of curiosity - instead of running 2-4 GB sticks, would I be better running 4-2 Gb sticks? Do a lot of multi-tasking which leads to my desire of 8Gb
