    Woohoo I got the videocard up and running...

    So here's what I did.
    I decided to use 1 90 degree sata for the harddisk.
    and one sata can fit anyways at one place.

    So I left 1 sata out, of the DVD burning device.
    Just temporarely ofcourse to see what the problem caused.

    So now I know the videocard is perfect, but the pci sata card causes the blue screen....

    So next thing to do is fix that problem :/


    ----

    The PCI Sata card wasn't compatible with Windows 7, that caused the blue screen, I returned it to the store, but he didn't have one for W7
    So I guess I gotta buy a new one online =)

    Hmm just before I got rid of the PCI SATA card I had a blue screen all the time. Not the blue screen of death but a light blue screen. No mouse, keyboard nothing worked. So I had to reset the computer.

    With the PCI sata card gone, the problem was gone to.
    So now after a few hours of downloading, gaming and videocard testing.
    I was just copying some files, nothing more, I had that same blue screen again!

    So that kinda freaked me out, I thought I had solved the problem with getting rid of the PCI Sata card, but now I had that blue screen again.

    I'm almost busy on the computer for a half hour again and copying files again. So I hope that the problem doesn't come back.
    But we all know that those kind of things never happen just ones >.<
    Oh darn I have to go search for a problem all over again aaaah...

    Did you guys ever hear about a problem like this? I've never seen this before :s

    edit:

    Oh and does anybody know a PCI Sata card that works on W7?
    Or a dvd burning device that I can run on a other port then a SATA port?

    Nice to see you got it working!

    Sorry, not sure what cards do work and which do not for windows 7. Most any that say Vista compatible should be ok though. What you can do is look at the manufacturers site for driver downloads from a few of them you are looking to buy and see if they list windows 7 drivers. Or read through buyers comments at purchase sites if you have any you buy from that allow user to post mini reviews or comments. We use Newegg.com for that in the US. Maybe you could look at the cards and comments there to help you decide what should work for you.

    So you need a DVD burner that is NON SATA Right? If so, just pickup a IDE one

    Hey thanks for the tip, just an hour ago I ordered the Promise SATA-300TX4B
    This one did cost a little bit more, but if it works, I'm happy.

    If this doesn't work and I have to go for a IDE DVD burner, can I connect that one on my motherboard? The Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2?
    I don't know if it has a IDE port

    It is GA-MA785GMT-UD2H Correct?
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...-MA785GMT-UD2H

    If so, yes it has IDE connection on it.

    If that is not your board, can you find it here and link me to it and I will check for you if you are still unsure

    Ah yes that's my board =), so atleast I know if the PCI Sata card doesn't work I can buy a IDE dvd burner.
    What is the difference between the SATA and IDE burner if I may ask? :')

    Not much at all really, a SATA one may rip a disk faster or something possibly, or load a disk a second or two quicker. I use both and don't see any real differences though

    Ah okey, well lets just hope the PCI sata card works, then I can always add a second harddisk =p, not that I need one, I can never fill 1,3 TB O.o

    I'll let you know when I got the new PCI Sata card and if it works or not =)
    Ty for the help again!

    It's just a blue screen with no text?

    Check and see if the vsmraid.sys driver is still loaded. Download Serviwin and set the vsmraid.sys driver to manual if it is still loaded.

    ServiWin: Windows Services/Drivers Tool (start/stop/restart service)

    Oh and does anybody know a PCI Sata card that works on W7?
    Or a dvd burning device that I can run on a other port then a SATA port?
    Have you considered a USB DVD writer? I've been using one for years. It maxes out at 12x burn speed for DVDs but it's a necessary sacrifice for my setup.

    If I were you I would get another drive for backup, post haste.

    Yes it's a screen without text, It isn't the blue color like BSOD but light blue. I have to reset the computer to get it working again.
    It could be the vsmraid.sys because that caused the BSOD previously.
    But I have to say, I almost used the computer for 20 hours and the problem didn't occur anymore after that. So for now, I'll just leave it, but if it happens again I'll check the vsmraid.sys driver

    Yes I have considered one. If the PCI sata card doesn't work and the IDE doesn't work that's plan C =x

    If I were you I would get another drive for backup, post haste.
    Yeah I got a external HDD with 500 GB. And it's light as a feather :o
    It weights just as much as my Iphone :'), but I use that to back up stuff
