I believe it was 7. It ran for about 6 hours, but I did have both sticks in if that means anything.

Yeah pretty much. That and the wininit error(all kaspersky related) which I posted already. Was the CHKDSK ok? I have not had any more blue screens in a while so I hope it was just a driver issue regarding my gpu. Is a 650 watt enough for my system? I was told it was.

Okay. Is there anything I can do to fix this 6008 error? Or should I just ignore it. My system is working fine and I wouldn't of even noticed if I didn't look in the reliability report. Is there a way to test every hardware component to see if I got something defective? Thanks for the quick responses, I appreciate it. Also, the ram I purchased is not listed in the qualified vendor's list in my mobo's manual, but I haven't noticed any problems with it.

If there are not symptoms I would ignore it for a boit and see if you have any problems. I think you are safe to forget about it.

So, about three days ago I did two things to my computer and have not had anymore 6008 errors.
1) I disabled USB suspend mode in my power options and
2) I created a shutdown shortcut on my desktop.

This means it's software right? I have not tested each by itself so I am not sure which one it is, but, if it is number 2, why wouldn't the normal shutdown feature work?
