Another one.

Any chance you can check the contents of this on.

I have it on selective startup and have only enabled the Nvidia driver service.

It points to a bad driver, that's all. It doesn't say which one.

I suggest updating your nVidia drivers, or uninstalling and installing a fresh copy.

Would a clean format and install make any difference?

Or is there any else i can to to try to workout what driver/device is causing the problem.

Most of the components are still under warranty.

Many thanks

If you're up for a clean install, go for it. We don't recommend clean install as a first resort here, just because it is a lot of work for some people.

A clean install should fix driver issues, simply because it removes them all. I suggest going easy with installing programs afterward, so the problem does not return.

If you want a list of programs you can trust, here are a few to start with. If you want to install anything else, just give us a shout and we'll decide if it's safe.

Google Chrome (the stable version)
FireFox
Microsoft Security Essentials

I'll give that a try tonight.

Should i refrain from installing any drivers other than windows default ones?

Hi Jonathan,

I've been doing a little digging and found this.
Daily BSOD Windows 7 x64
It seems to be a similar problem.

As the ram i have in my system is : Corsair XMS2 4GB (2X2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit

However i noticed from the mem tester you may be do yesterday that the speed said 800MHz.

Could this be casing it?

If i try changing the voltages can i do any harm to the components?

Should I try upping the Volts from 1.5v to 1.6v?

I have an Asus M4N72-E Mobo. I not sure what the setting will be called.

Thanks
James

If its not the case.

Done more digging it looks like Asus recommend to set the memory to:

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Forum- Corsair Memory Problem

TWIN2X4096-8500C5 DDR2-1066 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) 2.1v 5-5-5-15-2T

However i have no idea what the 5-5-5-15-2T means :S.

Any idea what settings will the 5-5-5-15-2T relate to?

MAny Thanks for all your help (again )
James.

Ok,


I've found the Asus Manual.

Have uploaded it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/736039/e4408_m4n72-e.pdf

Its secured so i couldn't copy and paste.

On page 2-14 there are some details about the timings. However im un sure as to how they match up.

5-5-5-12-2T

do i just match then up against the first option separating by - and leave the last ones as auto?

Ans what should i supply for 2nd Info? (Auto?)


Or is this all a waste of time?

Let me contact a memory expert for you. I can identify what the problem is, what it's beyond me to fix it.

He'll post here shortly.

EDIT: on second thought, it could be several hours. It is 11:50 PM where he lives.
