Windows 7: System Freezes and not stable after installing Crosshair RAM?

Failing that, try running the pc with just 1stick of ram in. Test each stick on it's own.

Yes Paul ,
I can see the ram volts are 1.5
Cant run mem test or any other jack S*** . I cant get past the windows password screen before it freezes and I get the BSOD ...

I really dont think its the RAM because I has a BSOD problem before I replaced the RAM ....See I orginally thought it was a Video card issue. so I dumped the video card and I am using the onboard graphics now
See my previous thread
BSOD after a new motherboard and processor was installed.

That's also why I asked for the Advanced Memory settings. And perhaps I missed it, but I didn't notice the memory speed being shown; again a reason for the Advanced memory Settings.

Edit: never mind, I see the speed - 1596.6. So yeah, the memory is pretty much running at 1600; which indicates proper XMP settings, to include voltage. In short, I'm pretty sure the memory is at 1.5 volts. But...

OMFG !!! This so random ......I did nothing ...changed nothing in the bois and I was on my laptop replying to this thread with the iphone pic when I rebooted the machine again and it ACTUALLY got part with Windows password screen and passed it with no BSOD ..
Im running the machine now and biting my tongue !! Ouch !!

I managed to download the analysis sugested earlier !! and here it is !! the machine has stayed stable enough to do it ...

{Edit ...still on the machine 20 mins later and it still running .mind you I am still to scared to open a three D Game I dont understand?? What I need is somehow to systamaticcaly check every componant I have installed. Is there anyway to do that ?}

Well looking at the advanced memory screen, your memory appears to be running fine.

As to the sudden fix, well, perhaps messing about in the BIOS fixed it

We'll await further word from you.

And yeah, try a game and see what happens.

Good luck.

While it is still running are there any other test I can perform so you guys can check why it is so random and instable ??

I think I need some sort of check list or stabilty check for all the new componants i put in over the past three months . Something like 1) check Motherboard 2)check graphics (onboard) 3) check RAM ..

Please dont mark this as solved because although its running fine now Im sure it will present the same issue again in a few hours

{edit. Im play a fast 2 D game and I can see google chrome visibaly loading the pages from top to bottom, lots of lag that was not there before and I can here my proccessor fan spinning like crazy ? )

(edit again .. Played a facebook game for 20 mins and it BSOD me again ?? Im thinking its the onboard graphics as the screens had pretty intense looking graphics but loadedthem from top to bottom ??)

Hi Again,
Sorry for being a pain
The machine is still BSODing on me ........
I read an article about a Stress Test ??? Will this help identify the problem? (assuming I can get to stay stable long enough)

Here is the BSOD code . I will se if i can find anything on google about it ?
BSOD CODE
BCCode: f4
BCP1: 0000000000000003
BCP2: FFFFFA8009373B30
BCP3: FFFFFA8009373E10
BCP4: FFFFF800031D37B0

Im am determinded to work out what the problem is as over the past few months I spent a tidy sum of quids to buy all the componants

First off, memtest doesn't require Windows. In fact you could run memtest without having an OS installed. See instructions here - RAM - Test with Memtest86+. So if you have another computer you could download the files and set it up to run in your troubled machine.

You really need to do this first to determine if your RAM is bad.

That said, have a couple of questions that needs answer; a rehash so to speak...
  • Are you overclocking?
  • Is your memory a purchased set or is it mixed (you bought different modules at different times)?
  • What specific version of Windows is this, and where did you get it?
  • What size power supply do you have?
  • Is the 8 pin EPS power connector connected to the MB?
  • Lastly, have you checked to see that your CPU cooler is fully secured to the MB?
At any rate you really need to run memtest to determine where the memory is, after that...

And if you can't run memtest from the BIOS, you have a hardware problem, NOT a windows problem.

Thanks

[*]Are you overclocking?
No Sir .. I am not overclocking Im running a new i5 processor at 3.1ghz as per factory instrucions
[*]Is your memory a purchased set or is it mixed (you bought different modules at different times)?
Its a purchaed set of Crosshair Vengangace 2 x 4Meg ... I removed the mixed and I am putting the vengance ONLY DDR3 1 and 2 ( this is clearly marked on the motherboard, as per manual.
[*]What specific version of Windows is this, and where did you get it?
Im using Windows 7 home, I paid for it and have the disk.
[*]What size power supply do you have?
I have a Crosshair 750volts
[*]Is the 8 pin EPS power connector connected to the MB?
Yes Sir it is [*]Lastly, have you checked to see that your CPU cooler is fully secured to the MB?
Im not sure what the CPU cooler looks like ? Im am assuming the i5 has its own fan. I can see the i5 fan going around with no clunking and it seems to be spinning clearly ...I only have |CPU fan and a case fan running and they seem to be running fine? I removed the radeon graphics card to use the onboard graphics
[/LIST]At any rate you really need to run memtest to determine where the memory is, after that...
I did run Memtest ... it found no problems. how can I post you the results?

And if you can't run memtest from the BIOS, you have a hardware problem, NOT a windows problem.

Thanks[/QUOTE]
