Windows 7: Ntoskrnl.exe Blue Screen

Thanks, I will be posting the info on my next post
Do you think that there is any possibility that the faulty RAM can cause my PSU to burn out
(after receiving a BSoD my pc restarted and made a electrical burn sound) about a month ago.
Would it be fair to ask the company I bought the pc from to send me another PSU??
Thank you for your time

I think it could be a faulty PSU that damaged your RAM rather than the RAM causing your PSU to burn out. There is the possibility that there is a short somewhere on the motherboard; but most likely, the PSU is just going bad. I would definitely have the company check your PSU and replace it if necessary.

The PSU could have been on its way out for a while and intermittently causing problems.

You should check the PSU if you suspect it to be faulty.

Carl is right, it's more likely a short on something, maybe the motherboard, is causing the PSU problems.
If the PSU is faulty it will cause all kinds of issues.

Please answer these questions.

Quote:
Go to your BIOS and tell us what the North Bridge (NB) voltages are, look under the M.I.T. page you should see 'CPU NB VID Control'.
It's on page 43 of your motherboard manual.
Gigabyte Motherboard Manual GA-MA78LMT-US2H

There known issues with AMD integrated memory controllers, the CPUZ tabs will give the information needed to check this, that much RAM will usually require a NB (memory controller) voltage bump.

Post the revision number of your motherboard.
If you don't know it, then open your case and look in the lower left corner on the motherboard, it is printed there.

Do your BSoDs happen when you first start your computer or randomly?
For the 'CPU NB VID Control', check in your motherboard manual on how to set it to manual.
This is the setting we need to adjust to get all your RAM stable.

Would you like me to insert the RAM I have taken out and then set the "CPU NB VID Control" to manual?

Any problems with the PSU?

Are you still having any BSoDs?

Did they stop when you took one RAM card out?

Change the "CPU NB VID Control" to manual, check what the voltage is set at and post it here.

What is the DDR3 Voltage Control reading?
If you can't see a number, like 1.5v, then set it to manual and tell us what the voltage is.

If you have not had any BSoDs since you took the RAM card out then you can put the RAM card back in and bump the CPU NB VID Control by 0.1v.
If it's at 1.1V then change it to 1.2v.

Run memtest86+ for seven passes, best to do it overnight as it should take 6-7 hours, might take longer with 16GB RAM.
If you see any errors you can stop the test and let us know how long it ran, what test # it was on and the approximate number of errors.
