    which ASRock mobo do you have?
    which version of Win7 are you using?
    I have ASRock mobo on custom built system and ASRock mobos do not like OVERCLOCKING at all.... recommend reboot F2 for bios move to reset all DEFAULT settings then see if you have problems.

    If you do not have x64 OS. recommend you do all with 3GB Memory
    OR EVEN 2gb.
    System Manufacturer/Model Number AS ROCK
    OS windows 7
    CPU intel(R) core (TM) 2 quad cpu Q8400 @ 2.66GHZ 2.67GHZ
    Motherboard intel P43 S775 DDR2/3 Glan 7.1ch
    Memory 4.00Gb DDR 2

    could be wrong power supply


    hi there

    i have changed back to windows xp for tests and still it is crashing can it be that the power supply is not enough for my graphic card :


    my motherboard is an asrock p43 s775 ddr2/3 glan 7.1ch

    my graphic card is a gainward gts250 1024mb gw0131

    and my psu is an energon eps-750w

    can it be the powersupply

    I would be tempted to say not. Unless you have a ton of peripherals sucking up juice. I myself have a similar setup with a MSI Nvidia gtx 275 with 1gig memory, which I believe has a higher power consumption than the gtx 250, and I only have a 650w PSU (thermaltake purepower rx, for reference) and it seems to be more than enough for me. 750w should be fine in terms of having enough wattage.

    Now whether the PSU is efficient and providing good stable power is another question. I tried looking up your psu on the net, and I can't even find a manufacturer's website. I did find a couple post with other people having BSOD issues with that PSU, for what its worth. If the PSU is not efficient and is not providing stable rails to your mobo, it can cause serious problems, especially if you're trying to OC at ALL.

    I would second the above poster that resetting all your OC'd settings to default would be a good first step.

    I would also recommend downloading ASRock's mobo utility called OCTuner here:
    ASRock > Products > P43Twins1600 > Download

    Not to OC the mobo, but this program will help you monitor the actual voltages your cpu, memory, northbridge, southbridge, etc, are getting from the PSU. If it is not what it should be or fluctuates a lot, I'd say you need a more reputable PSU with Active PFC.

    Blue screen with windows 7


    After quite a lot of research I found that the extreme amount of blue screens in windows 7 reoccurred mostly in computers with 4 DIMM slots, especially in cases where more than one RAM chip is installed. When the additional RAM chip is removed the problem goes away completely. I also found that should the second chip be replaced the problem reoccurs unless the voltage supplied to the chips is heightened from that originally put in place. a change in voltage supply would therefore make the problem completely dissappear.

    hi, i think my problem is the same. My laptop is crashing all the time. I've tried many driver for all my laptop parts, different versions of windows 7 and still the same. I noticed that without any programs is working fine. And I start testing. I have only uttorent and AVG working on a background. Here I readed for a seacond time to stop AVG soo I tryed , and everything is fine now. For 2 days I havn't any problems.
    My advise DON"T USE AVG WITH WINDOWS 7 !

    Use icon view


    Kind of late to the discussion here, but...control panel would crash on me every time I opened it unless I immediately clicked on a category. By chance, I clicked on the icon view (large icons works for me) and I have not had a problem since. It is the link at the top right of the screen (above the categories) where it says "View by".

    Wow this sounds EXACTLY like the issue I am having (as I have 4 DIMM slots). But I may have a little different hardware set up. I am only on a 250 W psu. I have an avermedia tv tuner installed. I get the BSOD when I have both memory modules AND the tuner installed.

    If I remove the tuner and have both modules - NO problem, no bsod.
    If I remove one module and keep the tuner card in - I have no problems.

    So, I tested the tunner card in another system with different psu and 8 GB of memory and same build of Windows - NO BSOD.

    I also changed my memory modules on my unstable system, and I still get a BSOD.

    I want to be clear, I do NOT get BSOD if I have both modules installed and NO tuner. I will try to do as you suggest and up the voltage.

    Vista 64 Ultimate & Win 7 64 Ultimate

    Well I have sorted the problem.

    It is not just one problem that cause this, sadly, hence it has taken me 10 days to sort this out.

    First and foremost, Windows 7 is partially to blame.

    So, here is what I did, my machine is now 100% running fine, has ran benchmark programs for 10 hours without failure today:

    1) Install Vista 64 Ultimate - Why not, Win7 really does not offer anything over it, DX11 upgrade has been available for a while. - At this point the failure will still occur.

    2) In the bios over volt my ram from 1.65v to 1.68v

    3) In the bios turn off C1E Support

    4) In the bios, turn off C-State Tech

    5) Enjoy my i7 920 processor at long last!


    Yes, those setting with Win7 still yielded restart issue, before anyone asks!

    Things to consider from my experience if you are looking for the route cause:

    1) When I installed the intel chipset drivers, I noticed that it took 10 times longer, maybe doing something more properly

    2) Then when installing windows update, I let windows install their driver for the ati card, big mistake blue screen! System restore sorts out that mistake. This make me think about the fact that Win7 installs with a driver installed for the gfx card one first usable boot, wonder if that is part of the win7 issue if its the same driver that blue screened on vista windows update!

    I'm one happy bunny!

    When its sorted out for Win7 then maybe I'll restore my drive image of it, but otherwise long live Vista and my i7!
