Frequent BSOD- HELP!

Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum and excited to join this community. I am wondering if anyone has a solution to a problem I have right now. I bought a ATI 4860 video card and installed it on my computer last month. Last week I upgrade my OS from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Since then, every time I play any game a fan from my computer runs really fast then slow then fast. Starting yesterday I kept getting BSOD and got 2 more today. When I restart computer, the monitor is blank.

I took out the ATI card and put in my old NVIDIA card and then restarted my comp. The computer runs but ther monitor screen is blank and its blinking continuously. So i took out that video card too and booted off the onboard video card and the computer ran properly and i could get into the desktop and there was display on the monitor.

I was wondering if anyone can help me with this situation as I dont know what to do

Computer Specs:

Windows 7 64-bit
ATI 4860 video card

So, what is your PSU? brand? model?
January 28, 2010 5:21:49 AM

Well, we could starte by giving the maker and model of your mobo, ram, power supply, hard disk.

Sure I will give all that but my buddy was sayin that it could be the ATI video card since the Chipset on my motherboard is a NVIDIA. He said that mixing isnt good and that I have to use a NVIDIA video card. Is that true?

Motherboard: ASUS M2N68-LA
Motherboard Chipset: nVIDIA nForce 6150SE-430
BIOS Type: Award BIOS
Hard Disk: Hitachi Disk Drive (298GB)

Regarding power supply, I forgot what it is and I will have it to you first thing in the morning.

That's not true, you're buddy is a n00b.

Even if it ends up being a no-name PSU, find out the amp ratings per rail.

Also try cleaning out the old drivers next time, using something like Driver Cleaner Pro.
January 28, 2010 5:47:06 AM

Its not a no-name PSU, I just dont know if its a Thermaltake or a Corsair thats why Im not throwing a name. And its 500W

There were no old drivers. I installed the video card when I had Vista and it was running flawlessly. I then installed Windows 7 and the problems started

And your RAM? 2x 1gb? DDR2 667? 800?

January 28, 2010 1:25:52 PM

RAM is 3gb
2x 1GB and 2x512MB both on DDR2 SDRAM

whats the BSOD error stop code?

What is the driver / device it is messing up on?
January 28, 2010 1:36:33 PM

This is what I get after I finally get my computer to reset. When I get the BSOD, my computer turns off and wen i try to turn it back on, the computer will run but the monitor is blank and just blinking. After numerous resets or if I boot off onboard video card, I can get to desktop and this is what it shows me:

Problem signature:

do you use the program easy file and folder protector?

could you open the C:\Windows\Minidump\010108-20280-01.dmp wih a text edior and see what it says inside? looking for sys files or things like that.

So i tried turning on my computer right now for the first time (since last night) and once again the problem occurerd. The computer will turn on but nothing on the monitor display. I have to boot off the onboard video card if I want to see anything
January 28, 2010 1:59:16 PM

Now it wont even boot off the integrated video. I took out the video card and plugged the monitor cable on the onboard video card slot and turned on the computer but nothing on display and monitor light just blinks.
January 28, 2010 2:33:16 PM

Depends on how comfortable you are with getting into the machine. Try unplugging the power from the mother board and waiting till the heart beat light goes out. Then plug the power back in. Some times that fixes some issues with some things. That may get your video back.
January 28, 2010 2:47:38 PM

But that will only get the video back right? It still wont solve the issue Im having...:( 
January 28, 2010 5:12:20 PM

Will going back to Vista solve anything? His computer was perfectly fine when Vista was running. The problem only started after I installed Windows 7. Either that or the BIOS has the onboard video card enabled. But I dont know how to change that since there is no option in the BIOS
January 29, 2010 12:10:46 AM

Ok, I just simulated the error code, I think its a memory problem, hope you could try this.

Remove your 4 pcs RAM, clean the pins and sockets, re-install the ram.

If still does not work, try to isolate each RAM, by installing a Single RAM into a channel/socket, and then the other ram, until you could get what RAM was causing the problem.

Let me know...
January 29, 2010 1:16:18 AM

Vaughn2K, what error code did you simulate?

So basically put the ATI back in the slot and run with only a single RAM?

This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff80002ac6105, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8800318d338, Exception Record Address

- the BCCODE

- Run each Single RAM to check which one is faulty...

- Yup, either you have a BIOS problem or one of your four RAMs are faulty.

So I ran MemTest 86+ for 10 hours and I got 10 passes and no errors. Does that mean my RAM is fine?

Oh ok. Also What is that VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT??
I have no traces of Windows Vista on the PC since I did a fresh clean install of Windows 7

W7 and Vista are pretty much the same thing, think of W7 as Vista SP3.
January 29, 2010 3:24:23 PM

I have attached two files here

The first one shows the driver version of the ATI video card. Is that the most recent version because I cannot find the latest version anywhere on google. When I go to the ATI website it tells me to download 10.1 Catalyst Control Centre which is what I have

The second one shows ATI Overdrive UI and if you look at Fan Control, the slider is at 50% but the fan picture on the right isnt spinning and is showing 0%. The video card on my fan is running though. Any ideas?

January 29, 2010 6:03:45 PM

any ideas?

Also does the PSU have to do with anything?

I have a Thermaltake TR2 430W PSU
February 1, 2010 5:50:17 AM

I am not sure if the MEMTEST86 can detect the problem. Had an experience before and replacing the RAM just made the problem go away.

Did you still try to remove the 2pcs 512MB? or tried running only 1gb then 2 gb?
