    Default MA785GM-US2H System not stable w/basic settings, no overclock

    Can't seem to manage to put a system together without running into problems.

    Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H (F5 firmware)
    Phenom II X2 550
    Crucial Ballistix 1mbx2
    Radeon HD4870 (9.12 drivers)
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

    This is the second time in less than two days the computer has crashed, given a blue screen, and rebooted. The error:

    < Event xmlns =" http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event " >

    I ran Memtest 4 for 9 hours, no errors (in another system), Prime95 went five hours before I shut it down. The system is not overclocked or pushed in any way. Basic settings all around. The motherboard's top temperature is 28c, the CPU is 45c under load.

    Might be relevant, I changed to the generic Microsoft AHCI 1.0 driver from the AMD SATA driver when the hard drive would repeat attempts to park (x4) the heads when closing down the system. The MS driver cleared that up.

    If its a hardware issue, I'd love to get to the bottom of it before my return period runs out (in about two weeks), better still, before I give the machine to my son for xmas.

    Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

    They don't have new firmware for this drive. But I think I've found what the problem is. Despite what memtest was reporting, I believe it was a ram issue. I wasn't running the voltage underspec and bumped it up. My son is testing it now.
