It is obvious that mgorman, and me have had a PM conversation.

I have instructed him to keep the dialog here in this thread. If it is okay with him, it is okay with me if we disclose what we discussed in that PM.

Personally I would feel better if we did. Essentially it consisted of a discussion about his recent link here, and here.

It is possible you may also have a bad power supply unit (PSU). You can start with this link here or search youtube to test it.

I would appreciate it if we did not continue troubleshooting here in the PMs, this is not what it was designed for.

This is what was discussed in the PM's to keep everyone following on the same page

Well a dual set of mem, split and a noted issue with the Gskill should be the first attempt to fix because, right then and there that is an issue. Unless that is corrected, to see if it solves the issue, the more you run in circles.

Troubleshooting a computer is to follow each step carefully to rule out a possible issue.

I had a whole bunch of BSOD's. I thought it was a bad USB 3 but it wasn't. It was a bad video card. Now, I don't have any issues.

That is why if try to find a problem and you are already have a piece of hardware not running within specs or that piece has a history of problems, fix that first to rule it out.

Ok so I got the new memory and installed it and when I turned on the computer after being off for a couple days I got a BSOD. This time a driver was listed. I rebooted the computer and it booted into windows. I was on it for like 5 minutes surfing the web and it just restarted with no BSOD. I then went into the BIOS and turned the memory timings back to stock. They were currently set to 9-9-9-24, 800MHz and 1.65V which is the stock settings for this RAM. I reboot the computer and it gave me another BSOD with the same driver listed. I restarted the computer again and it booted into windows. Can someone please look at these dump files and tell me whats causing the crash now. thanks

So I ran memtest again and on the 1 pass on the 5th test it reported back 300 errors. I had the memory installed in the two slots closet to the CPU. I took the stick in slot 2 and put it in slot 3 and am re-running the tests. Can a bad motherboard cause memory errors like that?


EDIT: With the sticks in slots 1 and 3 it didn't error on test 5. I will let it run though for 7-8passes

A bad motherboard or a faulty power supply, which i suspect is the root of your problems.

My PSU checked out fine. How can I test the motherboard without replacing it?
