Windows 7: RAM problem

RAM problem

I recently built a computer with the following parts:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive
Using Windows 7 64bit, everything went fine until 2 weeks later my computer would crash about 2 to 15 minutes after I log on. I read some info about the problem being with the RAM but I can't figure out how to fix the issue. I have ran Memtest86 without any error, and have switched around the RAM in different slots. I have also used the "Mem Ok" feature on the ASUS motherboard which seems to work until I startup my computer after 10 hrs + then I have to use the Mem Ok button on the motherboard.

teepee,

Sounds more like an unruly piece of software is causing problems.

Let's do a couple of general measures:
Download and run the cleaner and registry portions of CCleaner ( link in my sig). Don't worry about the registry portion causing the devil to arise and strike your system down. He won't. Ccleaner also makes a backup of the registry unless you tell it not to.

Now that your system is cleaned up some, I want to use the tools part of CCleaner as given in following:

LIST OF STARTUP PROGRAMS USING CCLEANER


CCleaner | Tasks icon | Startup tab | click on Save to text file button (bottom right side)

Using the PAPER CLIP icon in the top panel of a Message Reply window, attach the .txt file generated by CCleaner.

Hey Karl,
I ran CCleaner this morning before work and will do what you asked after I return home. I just wanted to make clear that I have Uniblue Registry Booster Installed, should I uninstall it or just,make sure it is not running in the background?

I appreciate the help!

there are alot of reviews on the amd 1100t not fully supporting or working with 1600mhz ram out of the box. Note the out of box bit

it does support up to 2000mhz ram but it requires tweaking in the bios.

there are a few posts on the amd forum regarding support for 1600 mhz ram.

it may be that you need to adjust the timing and voltage manually.

100% remove Uniblue Registry Booster. I tried this product. I do not recommend the product. Now this one can definitely cause your miseries.

Will look at the startup.txt file and get back to you.

By uncheck, I mean:
WIN | type MSCONFIG | STARTUP tab | uncheck all you see there except for the BDAgent. | APPLY button | OK button and restart your computer.

Don't worry. You haven't deleted anything. You've just told Win 7 not to run the programs at startup time.

Hey,
I did everything as instructed with the startup and CCleaner. I also looked into manually setting up the RAM timings and everything worked! But I started up my computer this afternoon and boom! it happened again. I checked the Event View and found this: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xfffff8200168e0f8, 0x0000000000000001, 0xfffff80003210617, 0x0000000000000005). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 062011-14913-01.

Good.

Now you have some meat for the the blue screen lads in the bsod/crash forum here.

For a little self-investigation, then you might want to consider taking a look at Blue screen of death (STOP error) information in dump files. which is free.

Also here's a link that may be of interest:
