Windows 7: Repeated BSOD's Last 3 Days

Yes....I tripled checked, and both are connected and are firmly in place.

I ran Memtest86 for 8 passes with zero errors.

I ran Prime95 with no errors

I ran Furmark with no errors

I ran Seatolols with no errors

I ran Driver Verifier, but I am not sure what it actually did. The computer needed to be restarted for the verifier to run, but the computer froze on the windows screen. I restarted the computer in safe mode, typed verifier /reset and the computer restarted normally.

I am out of ideas, I hope you guys aren't.

Again, all connections are snug inside the case.

Any chance the new Corsair PSU could do this?

If not, I think I am going to reformat the computer, as maybe we are dealing with a driver problem.

Please let me know what you think.

Driver Verifier runs in the background, testing drivers for bugs. Try enabling it again, and keep trying to boot (up to 6 times or so) until it lets you in. Once you're in, open a command prompt and enter verifier /query.

If you prefer to do a fresh install, that will immediately solve all software problems, unless you then reinstall the buggy program or driver. If the problem is hardware related, a fresh install will do no good.

I can't imagine how a healthy, higher powered PSU would cause any problems, but a defective PSU might. That's why it may be helpful to install the old PSU again.

Hello goosegas, Jon has asked me to take a look at your issues.

First, Many people post their issues on several forums, hoping to get it resolved as quickly as possible.
This is not the best approach, if you are taking advice from another forum you need to give the details of what you have done to the other forums. Anything you do can affect the issues. Without full information on what you have done the people helping you will not be able to be effective.
If you are taking steps provided from another forum, give the details and steps taken, also when you have done them.


Second, there is a known issue with AMD CPUs integrated memory controllers having problems running RAM at 1600 MHz and above.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING AMD AM3 CPU's and RAM SPEEDS

Change your RAM settings in BIOS to the lower 1333MHz, settings.
This will need to be done to rule out this issue.

Use the settings given on the CPUZ SPD tab, JEDEC #4, but use 667 MHz.
Manually set all these in BIOS.
The listed timings are 9-9-9-25 for the first four timings, leave the rest on 'Auto'.
Voltage 1.5v.
If you need help doing this, just let us know.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the RAM and North Bridge (NB) voltages are.

Ususally 8GB RAM will require a NB voltage bump, report the NB voltage in your next post.
Do not change this voltage until we know what it is set at, too high voltage on this can damage your CPU.

Let us know if you have any questions, and any steps you have taken that are not posted in this thread.

Hi Dave-

I am going to make the memory adjustments tomorrow, but I just wanted to make you aware of a BSOD I just received which was different than the others.

This one read: "Memory Management"

Does this seem to be something that might respond favorably to the memory adjustments you suggested?

Thank You

Yes, this is a common BSoD for the issues mentioned.

Tell us the BIOS voltage reading for CPU NB VID Control, this is important.

Let us know how it's going.

Dave-

I went in BIOS, but I am not certain that I was able to find exactly what you are looking for.

I have listed what I did find below. If this is what you need, then please advise as to the changes you think I should make if any.

If not, please tell me how to navigate through the BIOS to find what you need.

CPU NB FREQUENCY AUTO 2800MHz
X CPU FREQUENCY (MHz) 200
MEMORY CLOCK X8.00 1600mHz
SYSTEM VOLTAGE AUTO
NB VOLTAGE CONTROL AUTO

*SYSTEM VOLTAGE OPTIMIZED*

SYSTEM VOLTAGE CONTROL AUTO
DRAM VOLTAGE CONTROL AUTO
NB VOLTAGE CONTROL AUTO
NB PCIE VOLTAGE CONTROL AUTO
CPU NB VID CONTROL AUTO

Thanks again for your help!

It's the 'CPU NB VID Control' if it's not giving you any voltage reading then set it to manual and increase it by the smallest amount and post the value.

Did you set the RAM frequency and timings as suggested in post #14?

Dave-

The information I included in my last reply is all that I was capable of gathering.

I wasn't able to figure out exactly where I needed to be to change the RAM frequency and timings. Can you please help me to do that?

Also, in regard to the CPU NB VID Control, are you saying that when it is set on AUTO, there is a value assigned that I can actually see, so I know what the next setting upward would be? If I do set it on manual, what number should I use, if I can't see anything more than AUTO as the current setting?

Since we last talked, I reinstalled windows 7, to try to further eliminate the potential driver participation in the issue and provide more support to the RAM theory.

The computer went 24 hours without a BSOD, but in the last 2 hours I received 2. One said "Memory Management" and the event viewer info was exactly the same as in my original post. I wasn't able to read the second BSOD screen, as it stayed for only 2 seconds before the computer restarted itself.

Since I did reinstall the OS, I have included a new zip file, part of which is the new diagnostic file.

I noticed that once again, at the very top of the diagnostic file there is a warning of some kind, but also information stating that there is no detection of antivirus software. That statement is strange in that Avast was not detected before the reinstall and now McAfee is not detected, although running, after the reinstall.

Please advise and thanks again for all your help Dave.
