I am having a problem with the blue screen. I am currently running vista x64 ultimate. I have many x86 programs on my computer and am slowly taking them away.
I am running on:
Intel e8400 processor
2X Nvidia 8800gt's
8gb ram Adata (4x2gb)
Soundblaster xfi extremegamer

I have gotten 3 different things that crashed my computer is what I believe:

In BIOS, bump up the voltage to the system RAM. Give it 2.0-2.1v for PC6400.

No, it doesn't say that "those could be the problem". It says that they can help diagnose the problem. Right click "Computer" in the start menu, go to advanced system settings, and click Startup and Recovery. Uncheck "Automatically Restart". Next time it blue screens, tell us the error message. If badge's solution works, then it was obviously a voltage problem.

Oh I must have misinterpreted it. Thanks for clarifying it. It hasn't crashed on boot or reboot yet (which thats what it did 9/10 times it happened) alright I will try the automatic restart uncheck. Yes now it won't crash 3 times without me knowing it when I go to the bathroom :D 
Hopeful that badge's thing worked

Well I just had it happen to me again. It is the same exact problem (I just installed sp1) hopefully it will stop now but I doubt it.
Anymore ideas I can try?

1. Try running with 4 gig only and see if you have the problem. If not then we have narrowed it down.

2. Test your RAM with memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/

actually, try it with one 2gb stick, and see if it crashes. i had a similar problem with vista 64 and 4gb ram. i needed to install it with 2gb, patch it all up, then install the rest of my ram. look for the hotfix on the MS website.

sp1 should fix the problem described above.

Yea, probably better to try with one stick only. Though I think that 4 gig install problem mainly stopped you on the install? Never had it myself. It produces a fairly specific stop error and only happens on some PC's with a certain piece of hardware, or so the MS FAQ says. Still, running with one stick only is the way to go. If the PC runs well with 1 then add another and then go back to 3 and then 4. Some systems balk when you try to fill all four slots. That is the problem I was shooting at.

Having an Nv chipset is often synonomous with 'I am having a problem with the blue screen'. Especially when you realize the person posting for help is fairly new at assembling their own system. Memory can be a bad actor with AMD's on board memory controller. The RAM voltages and timings should be set manually if system instabiities occur including system crashing and blue screening when putting the system under the stress of loading software from a CD or running a complicated software (game).

OP should set the Northbride voltage manually also. Any good RAM company support personnel will tell you this immediately. Bump the NB voltage a notch. I do not know the specific voltage requirements for his Nvidia chipset. Maybe someone does. I smoothed out my system by setting my NB voltage to 1.39v manually. It wasn't in the manual, I learned by reading Forums. My Intel X38 and 8GB's RAM run like a dream. OP also has an e8400, two 8800Gts and an extreme soundcard. ummm...there will be a learning cuve. And how do I know? Learning curves on hand experience for one thing. 8)

The Blue screen hasn't come about since I installed the sp1 for the ms download. I never had this particular blue screen come up and I was running out of resources and things I could do. I will probably take out 3 mem modules if it happens again; although, I think it won't happen again with sp1 installed.
