Windows 7: Memory Conflict causing BSOD

Ubuntu is just another clean OS; the same effect as doing a clean install of Windows.

Since the stress test seems to be running okay so far, it throws doubts on whether the CPU is actually defective or not. It seems that a problem so serious would show up quite quickly on Prime95, if indeed the cores are bad.

If this was a heat problem, Prime95 should trigger a crash within minutes (if not less).

It's sounding more like a BIOS problem than anything else; is it possible you could get a new motherboard with the same socket? Perhaps visit your local PC shop; have a chat with them and explain the situation. Perhaps they will let you buy a motherboard, and allow you to return it if it doesn't solve the problem.

Again, we could be way off though. Is it possible you could just try the old CPU, to make sure it is indeed the new CPU causing the problem? Other possibilities include bumping the RAM, hard drive, zapping the motherboard with ESD, etc.

I was thinking through-out that, and I believe the same. A heating problem would of crashed by now, and I did burn a the disk while the stress test was on.

I'm going to run the uBuntu right now, and I will let you know if anything interesting happens.

Also what you was saying about the motherboard, I was thinking the same last night; I'm thinking about just getting a whole new motherboard and starting from there (Same Socket).

Haha, Least I have something to be happy about then :P

Anyhow, I am actually on my computer now; sending this message through uBuntu. I must say, it works like sexy charm. The only problem I believe I can see; I try to install the recommended drivers of NVIDA, and it kinda; I'm not sure, but it fails.

Anyhow, when I use to connect to the Internet through any explorers it would crash, not specifically at that point but around that.

Well I'm glad you tried that; it makes the possibility that a clean install will help much more plausible.

Do you have another hard drive the same size or bigger than your OS drive? If so, you can clone your OS drive to the other one, using a Linux-based program such as CloneZilla (my personal favorite). Do a clean install; if it doesn't help, you can just clone the other drive back again and you won't feel a thing.

Okay, I was going to ask you something like that; My main Hard Drive is 1 TB, the other one is only 300GB. So maybe, I will just copy the things I need? But; ever since I re-set my BIOS, my second hand drive won't show up?

Go ahead and copy all you want to the 300GB drive. If you can get into Windows, you can create a system image, and save it on the 300GB drive. Chances are, the compressed backup won't take up the whole 300GB.

Does the second hard drive show up in the BIOS? Does it show up in Ubuntu?

I will try to get into windows, but I can very much doubt it; I might be able to go through Safe-Mode, so I will try that.

The hard drive doesn't show for, uBuntu nor the BIOS. I'm going to check the data cables and power is correct.

That would be a good idea; also check the jumpers on the drive, if applicable.
