Windows 7: BSOD and Windows 7 Home Premium

BSOD and Windows 7 Home Premium

I just installed windows 7 today, but I did have some headaches.

With windows 7, I bought a kit of Corsair XMS2 2x2GB sticks, Model Number: CM2x2048-6400C5C I was upgrading from 2x1GB sticks of Corsair XMS2. I first put it in with XP still installed to test it while I moved files over to my other HDD. It worked fine.

When I got around to running the Windows 7 install. It gave me a BSOD less then 15 seconds in. I tried again and I got to the point where I could delete partitions, and it gave me another. After I deleted XP. So I decided I would put my old ram back in, and just install 7 and deal with it once it was installed.

With my old ram back in, the install finished in 30 minutes and everything ran fine. I then tried the new ram again and got another BSOD, so I went back to compusa figuring I had faulty ram. The computer couldn't stay on long enough to do anything.

I installed the new ram I got, and the same thing happened. So after the new new ram failed, I decide to only stick one stick in and test that. Right now, it is running on one 2GB stick, and it's running fine. After I post this, I am going to try the other stick solo to see if it works too.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

No overclocking of CPU or memory in the Bios setup, correct ?

Do you have the sticks in the proper slots as per the MB manual ?

No overclocking, and the sticks are in the first two slots for dual channel. When I tested my other new stick, I crashed to a BSOD after about 5 minutes. Before it went away I saw something about mouhid.sys.

I'm looking in my minidump folder and I don't see a new file for the last one a few minutes ago.

It is running fine with the first one I tested right now.

I am not a specialist at minidumps, but we have some members that are great at it. Hopefully they will be online and see this thread.

Are you sure the new set of ram is within the specifications for compatibility on your motherboard?

Try Memtest86+: http://www.memtest.org/ on each new stick of ram. If found faulty send back on RMA to either the retailer or Corsair, whichever is applicable. Also try moving the memory to the second set of slots, could be a improper solder of the first set of memory slots on your motherboard.

Try Memtest86+: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool on each new stick of ram. If found faulty send back on RMA to either the retailer or Corsair, whichever is applicable.

I made the bootable ISO with memtest and I'm running it on the one that caused the blue screen while it was solo in the first slot. I stuck it in the last slot just to see what would happen.

It looks like its running a bit fast even though I'm not overclocking it. It is DDR2 800 and its running at 430MHz which it says is DDR861. Dunno if that means anything.

Just realized that this is the wrong place for this type of problem.
