Hi, I need some help with troubleshooting this new build that will no longer boot into windows. It initially worked fine through the driver installations for the graphics card etc, but suddenly restarted and will no longer boot into windows.
-BSOD after starting windows screen, vanishes too quickly to read but i once saw "bad page fault" or something similar.
-I get one beep during startup and have since the first time the system was turned on, leading me to believe it is a memory problem.
-memtest is reporting 100% failure with the ram.
other info: the BIOS auto detects the memory as having 7-7-7-20 timings and 1066, which it ran at for the first few hours. during my attempts to get it going again i adjusted the timings to the manufacturer's recommended 9-9-9-24 and 1333, but this has no effect on booting or memtest.
Remove all ram, try each piece individually. Re-seating and systematically evaluating each piece is the first step. Try and get to BIOS to run your ram at a know good configuration. Memory will either flake or fry, so a sudden death on a bad batch of ram is not unheard of, if you can test the memory in a different, known good system.
