hi guys and girls... well after building my new build and thinking everything was going well, i know am experiencing the blue screen that flashes for a second or so and then the system restarts itself.. as far as i can tell i think it says dumping memory or something.. i really dont know and it concerning me alot... please please any advice or help is much appreciated... spec is down below running on vista 64bit... thanks

i have done no overclocking...
How do i check on the system settings i.e temp?
and if i havent fiddles around with any figures wouldnt it be normal to assume that all the manufacturers and specifications are already set?
Sorry... im knew to this but keen to learn....
The default voltages for the mobo are 1.8v but your ram might need 1.9v or 2.0v depending on the manufacturer's specifications, check it to see what it wants. If your ram doesn't have an spd chip that specifies the voltages it wants, your mobo will automatically set voltage to 1.8v I believe, which will cause BSOD's if your ram needs more voltage. Real Temp is what I use to monitor my temperatures. Memtest86+ stress tests your ram for stability, Prime95 stress tests your CPU for stability.
computer seems to be running fine now(only been an hr with no blue screen) since i changed the memory voltage to 2.2v in the bios.. i hope thats the right one that i was supposed to change....
the numbers 4-4-4-15 though do i need to input them manually into the BIOS and how?? i downloaded cpu-Z.. i am trying to attach photos that i captured from my desktop but i dont know how to upload them here... any help with that please?
Well according to that you are running 5-5-5-18 2T. The manufacturers specs says you can tighten up those timings to 4-4-4-15 2T, or you can run it at 5-5-5-18 1T at low voltage 1.8, which is what I would do. If you cannot get your system stable at that setting, then it is possible that you have a bad stick of ram and you may need to RMA it.
and how do i get to input those timings and where?
P.s. thanks for the help xthekidx
There should be an option in the BIOS setup for set DRAM Frequency or set DRAM Clocks or something like that. All Bios' are a little different so I don't know exactly where you would find it on your BIOS, you will just need to tinker around with it in the startup until you find it I suppose. If you accidentally change something that you didn't want to change then just exit the BIOS menu without saving and there will be no harm done.
Whatever your ram settings are, don't change them if you are stable. There is miniscule value in doing so. I am surprised that they did not boot at the standard 1.8v.
1) Run memtest86+ for several passes. There should be NO errors.
2) Run prime95 for an hour or so, to get the cpu running at 100% to stress it. Turn on the option for round off checking in prime95. There should be no errors if you are stable.
hey guys.... having another issue that i im dealing with now that i think i have sorted out the blue screen issue... my computer now freezes literally 30 secs after loading win vista after i installed the driver for my graphics card (HIS HD 4850 iceQ)..
this thing is really trying my patience.. please please help!!!!
