Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro 64bit BSOD Firefox video playback

UPDATE: Ran the Prime95 test again with one stick of RAM in the same slot and encountered errors where 3 threads out of 8 stopped working, but this time the tests on those stopped threads managed to successfully complete 2 tests as opposed to 0 successful ones like before when the 2nd stick of RAM was in. Bare in mind i only ran the test for a total of about 30mins as opposed to before for 9hrs straight. Here are the results:


Note that I'm running a test in a bit with the RAM i pulled out and pulling out the other one. Maybe i'll be alternating the slots in which I put them in later on.

While prime does a great job we/I use memtestx86 instead. It gives more definitive results. It either gives no errors (clean mem) or pukes and dies.

I would also run a system file check to verify your OS files
(tyep cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

If memtest and sfc clears, then we can get aggressive.

I have a new problem now. After I tried installing my RAMs in my motherboard again, and i start the system, I get a loud beep sound and nothing comes up on the screen only black but the fans and everything appears functional. I retried installing my RAMs firmly until the snaps click without forcing it and YES i switched off the PSU power and the power socket on the wall before installing and uninstalling RAM but i still get that loud beep noise at start up with nothing on screen. Please please help.

Note that the beep is a continuous long beep noise with no video output.

It's just one continuous long beep sound. please refer to my system specs under "My System Specs"

From what I read, a long beep sound on ASUS motherboards or any other motherboard is that it doesn't detect RAM. I tried properly installing them but i still have this new problem now and i dont know what else to do.

Note that i did press and hold the 'MemOK' button on motherboard to see if it will work but the noise persists and the 'MemOK' LED is still flashing which i think indicates that the memory is not detected by the motherboard. I also tried a different DIMM slot but same problem. It was working fine but i just took out the RAM to test and see whether my PC problem is because of memory corruption or not, but after i tried reinstalling them back on I get this problem. From one problem into another. The funny part is that I haven't encountered BSODs as frequently as I used to, only somewhat annoying problem was the occasional Counter Strike Source, L4D2, ZP Source crash to desktop that I haven't been encountering lately. Don't know what else to do. I'm afraid if the RAM is damaged (although I've been extremely careful and did everything my Asus User Guide told me to do even though it wasn't much help), dont know if the RAM golden finger is dirty, if the DIMM slots are dirty, if I damaged the DIMM slots, if i need to clear CMOS (dont even know how to do that), whether or not i will encounter more frequent BSODs than before because of switching around RAMs and whatnot,......there's a million questions now.

Well an update, I took necessary action and took my PC to a technician and he claimed that the power connector for my GPU was unplugged completely. Found it to be very strange because i quadruple checked to see that everything was firmly seated and connected before i started up my PC, i guess sometimes one can tend to miss the simplest yet most crucial details. He's also going update my BIOS along with any other driver that needs updating thereby running some stability and benchmark tests to see whether or not i have any hardware issues. If i have any hardware issues I will begin RMAing the faulty stuff. Will post back with more updates until the issue is HOPEFULLY resolved then this thread can surely be closed down.

Back with an update, for anyone still following this, PC technician ran memtest + Prime95 and other tests and confirmed that my RAMs were faulty and everything else ran smoothly. also updated my BIOS so that should come in handy since the ASUS motherboards latest updates come with a full/better support for low-voltage RAMs, which is what i have, so THAT should put things at a more stable state i hope. Still waiting for a response from OcUK in request of an RMA for the RAMs...

it will probably be a while before i post with an update with new RAM modules, if they give me new ones. Mailing delivery system here is abysmally sloooow =/

ok, verdict on my RAMs that were sent back were faulty after all, OcUK will be giving me a new pair soon. though i dont how soon is "soon." will post back once i've tested the new ones.
