My computer is about 7 months old. It has started crashing about 30 seconds after start up and giving me the BSOD. I am running Windows 7 64-bit and the error code is STOP: 0x0000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050033, 0x00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF80002CDF591). I figured that it was corrupted RAM, but i RMA'd the ram and that did not solve my problem. The computer is not overclocked and there have been no hardware changes since the initial build in June/July.
Asus P6T Deluxe v2
Core i7 920

when did the problems start to occure did you change something like intall a new program or install new hardware
those kind of thinks normaly set thinks in motion, do a mem test...
normaly it would be a change the user makes
(user error insert new user) LOL XD
Although I'm not question shortstuff on this one... I will say that 9 times out of 10 that I've had a memory error, it has shown itself immediately during the first Memtest86+ pass. But in this case better safe than sorry.
Because so many different things could be wrong with Windows, I'd download a bootable Linux CD (Ubuntu for example) and just boot from that. No reason to install it... just boot from the CD/DVD and move around inside the OS to see if things appear stable. If that is crashing on you left and right, well you've almost certainly got a hardware problem.
I assume you've attempted to go into Safe Mode already.
If you're unable to run Memtest86+ (it's easy, just make a bootable CD and boot from it) ... at the very least you could remove all but a single memory module to see if that clears up your problems.
The fact that you're getting the BSOD 30 seconds AFTER Windows loads implies that maybe something loading on startup is the source of your problems. If you can make it into safe mode, disable everything you can that's loading on startup.
I let memtest86+ run 9 passes and received 0 errors. Ill pay attention to my idle/load temps an get back to you. Everything is in an Antec twelve hundred with all fans on high and a zalman cpu cooler, so i don't think overheating is a problem. No, I have not installed any new hardware or drivers recently.
