Windows 7: 3 BSOD in a row; New SSD, RAM and Video Card

Okay, that's good to know, my next suggestion would be:

Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

Hey BlueRobot

Thanks, I'll have to run that overnight or maybe tomorrow then...in the meantime I got another bluescreen (sigh) again...just using chrome and notepad++. Dump and all attached.

Thanks a TON
-Rob

Edit: just got another after posting this "uncorrectable hardware error"

My computer was only running for about 30 minutes before I got a bluescreen do I need to continue running it?

Everything attached.

Just my two cents worth mate and I might be way out but have yo checked out the PSU try this

PSU - Jump Start

for a reference
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies as you will see there is a +/- 5% variance that can make all the difference so 11.4v is way too low and 12.6v way too high.

Plus remember correct bolts do not mean correct current (amps - in turn watts)

Suppose you have tried reseating everything too??

Hey, Thanks for the suggestion. Although I'm not totally sure what I would be looking for or what jumping the power supply accomplishes (unless its in that article you linked which, admittedly, I only skimmed). That my be outside of my comfort level. Would using a tester like http://www.soarland.com/shared/image...ply_Tester.jpg that work just the same?

I'll definitely go though and check all my connections though. I haven't cracked my case open at all since these problems started happening.

Thanks

Stop running Driver Verifier, it seems you've had a few Stop 0x124's, which usually indicate some form of hardware failure.

Well Rob all you need to do is take out the 24 pin put the clip into that green lead socket and any black ground socket that will start the PSU you then just test the volts on all the leads with a multimeter. Another thing you can try is a resistance test with the meter between the black lead sockets on the 24 pin and one of the motherboard fixing screws. The other pin to check is number 8 the grey one and as I said it is critical to the machine starting or resetting itself it has to be between 11.4 and 12.6 volts either side of those and it could either keep resetting the timer chip or damage the motherboard.
That device is ok but I I don't place a lot of confidence in them they can be very good and well made ones and some pretty ordinary when you want to know exact volts.
If you are worried about shocks mate the only shock you will get is if you are daft enough to put your tongue on the 12v rails lines or muck about inside that PSU which you will not have to go near. You are in no danger so do not worry about that if you follow what I said.
If you are able look at this http://www.sevenforums.com/vip/257690-psu-how-test.html#post2130086
Now as for reading the whole article I know it is long but the page 2 and 12 and 13 at least.

Your BIOS seems to be very outdated, have you checked for any BIOS updates from your motherboard support page? Remember to find the BIOS version for the exact version of your motherboard (including revision number), otherwise you could irreversibility corrupt your BIOS. Make sure the computer isn't turned off or interrupted when updating the BIOS.

I would also recommend testing the PSU. You may be able to get the voltage readings from the BIOS; post the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rail readings.

Hey BlueRobot,

No overclocking here. The only thing I've done in the bios is set the timing, frequency and voltage for my RAM.

BIOS Readings for Power below
Code:
CPU - 1.264v
3.3v - 3.296v
5v - 5.09v
12v - 12.081v
I also checked my power supply with a power supply checker and got all the LEDs lit up and a beep...which is apparently a good sign.

A friend recommended that I check my new memory I bought so I ran memtest overnight and found a bad stick. Right now I'm running with my old memory so we'll see how that goes.

Wow, yeah...my BIOS is out of data. I'll try to update my bios tonight if everything seems stable enough, I'm worried about a BSOD in the middle of a BIOS update and frying everything.

Thanks!
-Rob

Edit: Just flashed the BIOS with no issue and everything seems better...No Blue screens yet
