Windows 7: Another BSOD 3rd Thread

OK, another BSOD. I took that stick of ram out and put different stick in. Is that correct? It does not sound like we are testing ram or slots. I presume we are testing the CPU somehow. Is that correct? If it is, how is this testing the CPU? I just want to learn about things.

Another BSOD. Is there any reason to try another stick?

Yes. If you still get BSODs no matter which slot the single stick is in, and no matter which single stick is in place, then it is very unlikely that the problem is your RAM (usually only one or two sticks are bad, not all four).

We can use that with the fact that you have had the motherboard replaced (correct?) to conclude that the problem here is probably your CPU.

The third stick is in. And yes, I replaced the motherboard and the PSU. I do have another CPU. It is a PhenomIIx2, not quite the same as what is in here now, but if that's the problem we should be able to tell.

By all means, try the other CPU.

I need to order a few things from Newegg, I'll order it tomorrow then install the CPU.

To bring everyone up to date: had a bsod on the 3rd stick. Put the 4th stick in and immediately had another bsod. The order to Newegg has already been placed. But I'm sure I won't like the X2

I thought you already had a X2 ready? (at least that's what it sounded like from above).

I do. I just needed a few other things before I do it.

Just checking, because it wasn't my intention to have you buy a new CPU just yet, but if you already had that one around...
