Hello, I am having some issues with a recent system I decided to make myself and buy. I am getting BSODs with multiple messages, mostly IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, but also BAD_POOL_CALLER, BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER and TCPIP.SYS. Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Now, I had these errors much more frequently when the RAM was in slot 1 and 2 of the motherboard, after switching them to 3 and 4, these errors seemed to stop altogether, but still come up when the PC is under higher stress. I tested the ram with memtest86, and no errors came up. I also noticed an increase in instability when using ganged memory setting in BIOS, so i decided to go with unganged. I'm guessing there is a problem with the motherboard, either im setting something up badly, or there is a physical fault in the RAM slots on the motherboard. Can anyone help?
P.S. I'm new to these forums, is there a way to attach the minidump files I got?
Try memtest a different software from memtest86. http://hcidesign.com/memtest/purchase.html. I used to get BSOD before and when I run memtest I was able to determine that the dimm slot were defective. I hope this will help
