Also shall I manually set the timings for the memory? there are at the moment on auto at 7-7-7-30

What settings should I change in the BIOS to set the timings?

You have to be certain of your exact RAM modules. You can use CPU-Z for this, SPD tab.

If this is your memory, bump up the voltage to what it says and follow the timings too. Check first that this is yours though.

Hi

This is the memory below that I am using.

Could this problem realte to the motherboard in anyway? Or is it more likley to be a driver issue?

Dump files attached.

Since updating the BIOS and installing the Chipset drivers I forgot to install these. I have been able to Alt tab out of grid and back into it again without any BSOD'S although I have only tried it a few times and I am still using the 260GFX card.

This is your ram (take out one the 3s from your post and get this, heh.)

Adjust Vdimm (Ram voltage) and timings accordingly.

Yeah, it all seems well from here. How are things going? Well now still?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortenaly it has just BSOD system exception during boot up. Do you think its a good idea to reinstall Windows 7? So the voltage setting will run it at 1.7?

Sony AD-5240S 24x DVD±RW DL Internal SATA Black Bare Drive


When gaming on the computer it will crash and a BSOD will come up saying Bad Pool Caller. Or just a blue screen of death saying there is a problem with your video card. I have reinstalled the drivers for this card and used older drivers however the problem still contuines. I have now put my Gigabyte GTX260 in this sytem above and all seems well at the moment plays games and passes tests with 3DMark 06.


Does this sound like a dirver or a faulty video card problem??


Also one other thing I have notcied about the disk drive is the tray that opens seems to open a bit then open fully has anyone else experinced this problem before?

Can you please let me know,


Thanks,

OK Thanks,

I have not changed the timings could you take a look at the picture for me to make sure that I have changed the right ones.

Also the voltage is still set on auto, could you let me know what setting to manually change the voltage setting so it runs at 1.7?
