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.
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
I Updated to the most recent BIOS also
I would say your a little weak on power.
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.
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

I only have 1 PCI card and thats my Wireless adapter
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
