Just got done with my new build, and I'm having some issues...

AMD 1090T
ASRock 870 Extreme3
nVidia GTX 470

I get the blue screen of death randomly now within 20 - 30 minutes of every time I turn on my comp. I can't run any tests like prime95 and what not because I just end up getting blue screen.

I followed advice of the step by step guide to building a pc, and downloaded all of the updated drivers ahead of time onto a flash drive, so those are the drivers I'm using for my hardware.

Here's a pic of what the BSOD says:



Any ideas? I have no idea what to do!

Here's MS explanation of the error code. It sounds like RAM or board. Have you run memtest86+ on the RAM to make sure it is good at the speed you are running? Use the iso image about 1/2 way down the page - burn it to a CD and boot to it from POST.

Thanks for the help! Before I saw this I found some more information and it turned out to be Zone Alarm firewall causing the issue, as after uninstalling haven't gotten it since. Thanks again!

You're welcome. I've been using PC Tools Firewall for about a year: It is free and has not caused any problems with XPsp3 or W7x64 Ultimate.
