Event[652]: Log Name: System Source: Application Popup Date: 2011-05-23T13:13:43.000 Event ID: 26 Task: N/A Level: Information Opcode: N/A Keyword: Classic User: N/A User Name: N/A Computer: user-PC Description: Application popup: chrome.exe - Application Error : The instruction at 0x76ed2776 referenced memory at 0x003a0008. The memory could not be written. Click on OK to terminate the program

remember that from the 1st post? Is it just an appcrash and nothing more?


Far as memory goes, all RAM slots are occupied.

Which brand RAM card in which slot?


If Chrome is running with no issues it's ok.
It updates regularly, so the issue is probably fixed.

Mixed ram brands in both slot groups. PNY is silver, and SpecTek is the normal green stick.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU(CPU Vcore), RAM (DRAM Voltage) and North Bridge or NB (MCH Core) voltages are.
The timings from your CPUZ snips look ok for now, with these voltages we can give a recommendation for a bump.


D/L your motherboard manual if you don't have it.
GA-EP45-UD3L

Your PNY RAM is in slots DDR2_1 and DDR2_3
Your SpecTek is in slots DDR2_2 and DDR2_4

These are in the correct slots for dual channel.

From your motherboard manual.
Quote:
2. When enabling Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules, it is recommended that
memory of the same capacity, brand, speed, and chips be used and installed in the same
colored DDR2 sockets for optimum performance.

I've gone pretty much all day without crashing so far. I think things are going to be ok. Thanks for the help, in the future, I will repost if any crash occurs. Cheers! Thanks for the Mobo pdf manual.

We can check those RAM and NB settings, they will likely cause more issues, best to give them a little adjustment now.

Your choice, let me know if you want to continue or if you have any questions.

OK, so maybe I spoke too soon. It crashed on me with the IRQL error again, but, I installed a motherboard program onto my pc, could that have made it crash? it was called EasyTune, allows me to tweak the boards settings with software. I matched the ram up, so now, both ram sticks are the same for both slots. See what that does for me. Attachment below, just did this.

Post the crash files.

According to your motherboard manual you had the RAM in the correct slots the first time, you need to change it back.
What you have just done will likely cause more problems.

Uninstall the Gigabyte EasyTune, it is known to cause crashes.
This is not a reliable way to OC your system, these programs always overvolt everything, causing heat issues.
If you want to overclock your system, first of all wait until the cause of your crashes is found, secondly take a little time to read and understand the OC'ing methods. You can easily OC with minimal voltage and better results doing it manually through the BIOS.

Just captured a bunch of screens with easy tune, and just experimented for a second. So, the correct way was the previous RAM configuration? I will switch back then. Below are screens from easytune, with the voltage, like you were asking.

I will repost the crash files. creating a new report right now. Will oust EasyTune too.
