    @artdrivers,

    Nope, changed the ram voltage from 2.0 to 2.1 and changed the NB voltage +0.2 did not help. The system crashed during the night.

    Sorry all I can do is make suggestions. Could you have had a power failure? Before it was a BSOD, now a crash? Even a flicker or surge can cause a crash.
    So raising memory voltage did'nt help with the BSOD? I still think it could be a memory issue. Can you swap memory? We also have not rulled out a Windows issue with that BSOD.
    I have another suggestion. Have you disabled the sideport memory in BIOS? When you load optimized defaults it will automatically be enabled again.
    You may want to make these changes in BIOS.

    *update* I decided to reboot my computer since it had been several days since I had seen errors. When I did, and looked in event viewer, there were "atikmdag" errors upon bootup and "kernel event-tracing" which was said "Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D". So, I uninstalled MS security essentials and installed the ATI DRIVER ONLY for my video card (from ati). After several reboot from checking. Those errors have gone. I still don't know if those were the cause of the BSOD though.
    Another error! I'm sorry I missed this on my previous read. Windows 7 has not found the latest ATI update? If you want you can get it from the link below or you may have already done this.

    Sorry, I should have used the proper terminology. It did BSOD.

    I do have some older kingston ram I am going to put in the system.

    Sideport memory is disabled.

    No problem. Yes, windows already installed the latest driver for the video card. However, the computer BSOD'ed. So, I thought I would download and install ATI's driver (just the driver). And well....the computer still did BSOD.

    I talked with crucial tech support. They are going to RMA the ram for me but they also pointed out that it could be the processor as well. But, I guess I will RMA the ram first and see what that gets me.

    I decided to mention be sure you load optimized defaults save exit shut down unplug power before changing the memory.

    UPDATE: I have been running an older 1gb kit of corsair ram in my system while I wait for my replacement ram from crucial. The ram has been in my system for a week and I have not had any BSOD's with the corsair ram so hopefully it was just an incompatible ram situation. The replacement crucial ram came in yesterday and I installed it. We will see how it goes.

    One side note: I called Crucial's tech support twice last week and let me tell you their tech support rocks. There were no hold times. Both people I talked to were very knowledgable and understood everything about the situation as I described it. I don't know if my experience was a fluke or not but if just half of my tech support calls were that pleasant then life would be so much better.
