Windows 7: BSOD New Custom pc

Hello Icky,

Well I was reading your post on my psp and decided to boot up my pc to see if I could force a blue screen and guess what I did. I turned on the pc and couldnt even get to the log on screen and kept crashing. The last stress test i ran was on Slot B_1 with the memory stick that had crashed my pc on slot A_1 but the previous time it would actually after the reboot work fine but not this time. So it wouldnt boot up so i took the memery stick i have had good success with and put it in the same slot as B_1 or replace the other memory stick. PC booted up fine. no crash so far as im writing this. I included the BSOD text.

sounds like bad stick to me needs to RMA ?

I would however get a conversation going with your supplier and ask if they think this combo of two will work when they provide you with a good pair ?

I got this combo from newegg.com when they had a sale. I know I can RMA it though cant find the packaging it came with it so hope thats not an issue. I know they had a disclaimer of something along the lines off NOTE: Combo products might not be compatable with each other check documentation for compatability. I have read that a lot of people got it to work though. Weird that one stick works flawlessly.

well no i wouldn't say weird , the relationship between the ram the motherboard and the CPU are in your case negotiated by the onboard memory controller on the AMD chip, and this is responsible amongst other things for the timings along with the northbridge chipset ?

the ram you have installed is outside of the spec that is covered by the motherboard manufacturers testing so it's not guaranteed to be compatible ?

I am confident that you have one of two causes for your crashes here ?
  1. you have one bad stick of ram which needs replacing ?
  2. installing two sticks of the Gskill F3-1066CL9-4GBRL is changing your timings out of tolerance and creating unrecoverable errors ?

the two possible solutions I suggest are :-
  1. RMA both sticks and replace with something else compatible of the QVA list such as the Corsair CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 (4x2GB) combo ?
  2. RMA the bad stick of Ram and hope that will work in combo ?

This assumes the motherboard and CPU are working properly ?
Have you checked your CPU to make sure none of the pins are bent ?

When you compare to "other peoples systems that are working ok" I doubt they have the same motherboard CPU and Ram combination as you ?

let us know how it goes

Thank you for your reply. I just sent newegg a message. I dont have the original packaging as someone came into my room and started tossing stuff away. I always keep the boxes. So hopefully they agree. If they dont ill just order the corsair and see what happens.

Hello Ickymay, Sorry for late response i rma'd the memory sticks took a while to get here. After a month of testing everything is working fine No blue screen.

I just bought another SSD but its not showing up. It does under device manager and bios but not on the my computer page which is odd trying to figure out why. Also im trying to find out if my SSD is recognized as an SSD any tips? Thanks for all your help.

great news that new ram seems to have solved your blue-screen problem

my personal experience with SSD drives so far suggests that if I can see it in BIOS but cant see it in windows then it's firmware and or drivers, but if It's showing in disk management but not in my computer it is likely to be in an unrecognizable format ?

have you tried from disk management formatting and assigning a drive letter ?

Yeah i didnt exp this issue with the vertex 2 though i did install win 7 and had to format it. With this agility it shows up in device manager and bios but in my computer so i cant right click it and format it. I even went through control panel to find the format tool and it doesnt show it. Maybe i do have to format it? Is there a simple tool for that seeing i cant do it through operating system?

i use the vertex 2 and I did have some problems until I updated the firmware check the OCZ website ?

to check your firmware version look at numbers after the drive in BIOS boot screen or in device manager right click properties of the drive then select details/hardware id's ?

If you still need to format outside of windows try the open source linux live-cd called parted magic

Yeah i tried their tool to download the latest firmware update which when downloaded it sends it to the agility 2 drive but I cant access that drive since its invisible lol So the firmware update is there with no means of me being able to run it. I guess ill try the linux cd XD
