Windows 7: Surprise! Windows 7 BSODs

15 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Sounds like a good plan Ezhno, you don't sound so computer unsavey anymore.

Make the changes and do some testing, getting rid of those built in utilities is probably a good idea. Even at 1066Mhz you might need to make some adjustments to memory voltage or timings, possibly even CPU VCC may need some extra voltage it's hard to say from here.

I wouldn't consider it solved until you can go a few weeks with zero problems so time will tell.

If you use the Windows version of memtest it's important that you follow the instuctions in the link below "I wrote them". How to use Memtest for Windows

You just run the same number of tests as you have CPU cores or threads, 8 in your case I believe, then you divide the Unused memory into each test and run them all at once.

Ah, I know a few things but there's infinitely more I don't know. But yeah I'll do that (thanks for the links), though I don't expect memory tests to pull up much. Although after dealing with Windows ME some years ago I've learned its better to be safe than sorry.

The system was crashing every five minutes or less but since removing the utilities has been up near 30 minutes running MemTest. Either way seems like the worst is over.

Sounds good Exhno, I think the advanced memory profile had it at 1333 so it's good you figured out how to change it. Every five minutes wow LOL. Ok you can mark this as solved then if that is the case.
