I just got a system built. Its a pretty budget rig atm my system keeps going into blue screen of death and dumping physical memory. I tried switching graphic cards and no luck at all. I first got it started and it worked fine for 3 days then it started having these problems. if anyone could help me narrow down my suspects it would be most appreciated.
My system. AMD 3800 X2 (with the fan that was included in box set) ECS K8T890 A ( not a board i wanted but it was a combo buy Kingston KVR400/512R 512 PC3200 CL3 (not on the mobo's compatible list) Linksys Wireless Network card 802.11G Dont know the brand but Geforce 2TI L&G 350W PS +12 at 12 volts and i think .8amps 120Gig Seagate ATA 133 52x48x24x CD-RW 56X CD-ROM 3.1 Floppy I Updated to the most recent BIOS also
More aboutmemory dumping
I would say your a little weak on power. Try this. Take everything out of the computer that isnt needed to run it. Use only 1 hard drive, 1 cd-rom, vid card and memory. Leave all other drives and add-on cards out. see if problem still persists. Try a clean install with minimum hardware.
Give us the dump message, that will help pinpoint the problem
First of all, what are you trying to do that made the computer go BSOD?
Just tring to start it up I am using windows 2003 Server on that comp I also tried to install xp on a partition and also get the blue screen
Need the BSOD message!
The blue screen says.... A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damages to your computer If this is your first time you've seen this error screen restart your computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate diskspace. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates Disable BIOS Memory Options such as cachin or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart your computer F8 and blah blah blah
Tech Info on the blue screen *** Stop: 0x0000007e (0x0000005 0xE161FBF0 0xF8876868 0xF8876564) *** PCI.SYS -Address F853D0BF Base at F8536000, Datastamp 3b7d855c
I only have 1 PCI card and thats my Wireless adapter
Pull that out, it may also be an integrated device using the pci bus, disable sound, lan, any raid controllers, etc. and see if it helps.
Ok going to try that right now will let you know if that helps =) I also tried using less power and it still does it
what do you mean use less power?
I tried taking out an extra CD rom I had and disconecting Floppy and and extra fans.
Ok I disabled everything and it still gave me the blue screen. So I went back into BIOS and i turned of the ACPI or whatever its called and it started working and then my NTLR got corupt. So i Bootcfg /rebuild and while it was scaning for different Windows I got a different Blue screen it said about the same thing as the other one. but the differents was this one said Bad_pool_caller
I put the HD in a different comp to see if it was my HD going out. It works fine in another Comp no problems no error on the NTLR and it boots great
Bad ram or MB, do you have some ram you can swap and test with?
No i dont have an extra stick to test. I was thinking it was probably the Ram. Its not on the support list of my Motherboard.
the memory it supports at 512MB is: Kingston D3208DL1T-5 Kingston KHX3500AK2
So i figured Kingston KVR400/512R would; thats probably my problem
usually boards aren't THAT picky, but who knows. It may just be bad ram though. Have you ran memtest on it?
no i haven't. I was reading some other posts so im going to try that and see what i come up with.
google that error message I just saw that error message on here maybe a few days ago.... there's about 30 odd things it can be.
google it and you should find a link that gives you some hints.
ok I did memtest I think this may be a new record i had 221,000+ errors Test 5 4916 test 6 27555 test 7 didnt have a number must of registered to high test 8 907
is there anything that would make it error that much without being the memory?
uh, no, unless you have some debris in the slots maybe.
ok I guess im going to have to RMA this stick of ram. thanks for all the help
