I have just built a new computer with the following specs:

Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P 790X Socket AM3 DDR3

Corsair 650W TX Series PSU

Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2 GHz

OCZ 4GB Kit (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10666

PowerColor HD 4870 1GB GDDR5

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,

Wizkid

can you go into c:\windows\minidump, zip the dump files (*.DMP) and upload them to us for debugging

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?

If I get another BSOD do you think its a good idea to reinstall Windows?
Reinstalling Windows will result in the same error.

Picture looks good.

"could you let me know what setting to manually change the voltage setting so it runs at 1.7?" - This is what your motherboard manual is for.

Hi

I know where the setting to change the ram voltage setting is to change it. But I am just unsure what setting to change it to or shall I just leave it on auto?

I attached the dump files yesterday as a rar file.

"Adjust accordingly." - so that would be 1.7v.

I don't know if I mentioned it, but update to latest video card driver.

Hi


Thanks for your reply.

The lowest that setting will go is x4.00 then its shows 800mhz there are also others x5.33 1066mhz x6.66 1333mhz x8.00 1600mhz



Does this sound like a buggy video driver? I am using the latest drivers but could go back to using last months Nvidia drivers for Windows 7

Honest advice based on that response is to bring the machine to a shop and have them fix it. Those things you mention have nothing to do with voltage. I can see the future a little and if you randomly adjust stuff without knowing, you could permanently damage hardware.

Don't roll back on any video drivers. That's always a step in the wrong direction. If anything, try to locate the latest beta...usually on nVIDIA Geforce 285 260 9800 275 295 GT GTX AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870 5850 5770 4890 X2 - Guru of 3D: PC Hardware Reviews

I have now found the correct section for the DDR3 Voltage Control, I was looking at the wrong setting before.


What setting shall I select from the list will 0.100v run at 1.7?

Default for Vdimm of DDR3 is 1.5v, so you want to make that setting

+ .200v
