Meanwhile I will do the dmp

Hi Ken, some of the guys already decoded the dmp. I am finishing checkin the HD (primary, the secondary has been unplugged and remained like that since then).

Can you add anything else to the problem? Next step, if the HD is alright (it seems it is), would be checking the RAM with MDSCHED or Memtest86, can both these be used in my OS?

I really don't have any extra components to exchange to test processor and or RAM, I only can try one RAM DIMM at a time (I have a 2-unit kit).

I wonder if the original DOS software might not have installed a driver on the Hard drive and Windows 7 may not be able to use it or identify it.


Can You tell us more about the software and what it does?

Thank you in advance

Hello Jan, if you are asking about the behaviour after typing "CHKDSK /R /F", it schedules the check but as soon as it appears to start the check (after rebooting) it says: "Volume is clean".

The check I scheduled in the HD properties is not the same than the CHKDSK?

Does it indicate something? I thought that those tests were done "outside" the Windows enviroment.

How about a few questions while we are waiting

1-was this a clean install of win 7?

2-was all 4 gig of ram purchased at the same time from the same package?

3-does this BSOD in safe mode (F8)?

4-If you have run memtestx86 for how long did you run it and how many errors did you find? You did run memtest from a cd external to the OS, right?

5-Have you tried reformatting the Hd without the DOS software?

6- you are not overclocking, or undervolting, correct??

1-Yes, it was installed on a freshly formatted HD (WD 640 GB Caviar Black).
2-Yes, it's a 2-DIMM Kingston kit.
3-I don't quite remembered, but I will try in a while.
4-I haven't yet. I will as soon as the error-checking I have running at the moment is finished (I hope it gets there without BSOD). I will from a CD I have just burnt (bootable).
5-Can you help me with this one? How should this be done? It has BSOD on 2 different HDs, the 640GB Caviar Black and an older 250GB Maxtor.
6-Nop, everything on the BIOS setup is pretty much default as I can see (automatic?).

I have already run the Memtest86+ v4.10 on 1 of the DIMMs (7 passes, 0 errors), I am running it on the second one. After that, I am thinking on running it with both installed. Is that logic or just a waste of time? (both together would work in a dual-channel mode).

Both DIMMs did great on the Memtest independently. Now I am running the test with both installed and see what happens.

If this works OK, I guess I am left with motherboard, micro and video card, right? Or is there anything else? (I have already discarded HDs).

Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Prime95 didn't show anything bad. Run it for 8 hs 2 times.

Today I took the computer to the shop where I bought it.

Will keep you updated.
