Windows 7: Windows crashes on startup only when powering on system

Well, thanks. If you can still boot, I'd like to see screenshots from cpuz. I'd like the CPU tab, the memory tab and the SPD tab. If you don't have it, download it here.

I did post them, they're on the top of page 10. You might not have gotten a chance to see them.

I'll look now. Guess between hopping between threads I missed them.

What did you change in bios to get your ram to run at 1600? AMD CPUs memory controller is on the chip. The fastest they will run ram is 1333 (or 666 on cpuz dual channel). The only way to get them to run at 1600 is to change voltages and settings in bios. Whatever was changed may be what is causing you problems. It is OK to do that. I did that on my AMD rig. But, we need to get you running stable at stock first.

I never changed anything, everything has always been on auto and I never adjusted voltages or speed or anything.

Unless updating the BIOS caused it.

you can try holding f8 just as you start it to bring up startup options , then choose "last known good configuration" that worked for me

Do you have an option in bios called dram/FSB ratio? if you do, set that to default.

Would that erase and personal files?

I don't know, I'll have to check another time, he's home from work and using the machine now, and I have a headache.

Using F8 to go to start up repairs won't erase anything, but may or may not find your problem.
I've read this whole thread, and here is my 2 worth.

You mentioned something buzzing, which is never good. It could be your PSU, DVD, or some fan hanging.

Go into Bios and reset to factory setting, except what you need for your RAID array.

As essenbe said, your RAM shouldn't run at 1600 without some tweaking, seems yours is though.

CPU NB is the Front side bus for AMD and controls the memory frequency in part.

You DVD drive is probably shot, try another one if possible.

If you got your RAM as 2 4GB kits, you may have mixed the stick up and the matched ones are separated. It would seem that some RAM or a slot is bad.

With sooo many different bug check errors this is quite confusing. Note that I have no RAID experience and I won't try to speak to those issues. But, on my gigabyte board to use RAID I would have to use specific SATA headers.
