    Question Blue screen constant crashes

    Hello

    I'm having alot of problems with the bsod since the new hardware/windows.
    I've noticed these errors in two days:

    0x00000024
    0x0000000A
    0x00000050
    0x000000F4
    0x000000D1
    0x0000003B
    0x00000019

    My specs are next:
    -Intel core i7 920
    -Gigabyte EX58-UD4
    -6gb (3x 2gb Corsair 1600mhz memory)
    -Radeon1950xtx atm.

    Running on Windows7 ultimate
    I've updated to latest bios
    I've downloaded the latest drivers

    Searched the internet for any solution but without any luck.
    Anyone with any useful tips/help that could solve this?

    Thanks for help.

    Please try this BIOS out, F7h
    http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/7/...X58UD4.F7h.zip

    Read this guide if you are unsure of anything flash related, DO NOT USE @BIOS >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...st-bios-28441/

    Before I give you any settings, you may need to look at your CPU Socket. Your channels showing up as - or N/A in the BIOS may mean you have bent socket pins. Or it could be voltages set incorrectly. So if you try these, and they work but you still have one channel not showing up in the BIOS you may need to remove your CPU and check for bent pins in the socket. If you do, BE CAREFUL, as a few users have actually bent pins accidentally just trying to check this out!

    I assume all the settings you left blank means you are using Auto for those right? If so this is likely part of the issue.

    Default Re: Blue screen constant crashes

    I've checked the processor and everything looks ok without any faulty pins.

    While I was looking I've also changed the order of the RAM moduls.
    ( A B C -> C B A ), and the missing settings are now shown on the Channel C(previous on A) as shown on the image: http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/3...1220091442.jpg
    Could it be the faulty ram module?

    I'd also ask what is the QPI Link Speed? Becouse it lowers from 6.4 to around 4Ghz when i change it to x36.
    And how will these new settings effect my overall performance?


    I've also changed the settings that you wrote till the Advanced timing control and Advanced Voltage control, to see if it goes well.
    Got it up and running for 2 hours now without the crash.

    Will reply if I encounter any problems again.

    It is the socket for the processor you need to check, if that is what you meant then you can ignore this comment.

    From your comment it sounds like you have one faulty stick. Can you test booting with one stick at a time, in any of the white slots. When one stick fails you know which is faulty.

    QPI link speed is how your processor connects to the rest of the system through the IOH (NB). Here is some more info on that if you need it
    Intel QuickPath Interconnect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you are seeing it lower that can mean two things, one auto may appear to be 6.4 but not actually load that when windows starts, or it may really be using it (x44) and thats ok it is just using higher than normal. 920 normal is 4GT/s, but you can use 6.4 easily if you want. Just set x44 then and you will get 6.4GT/s

    Post back if you need more help, good luck tweaking and testing!

    Got two crashes today.
    It's too soon to tell if I got them less common now.
    But I still have the problem.

    Gonna test the RAM sticks tommorow when I get home.


    Could it be the windows installation itself that is causing the crashes?

    Yes it could be, or drivers, programs, ect. Can you get the BSOD Code, looks like this 0x00000000

    It will be on the left side of the screen in the middle. If you want you can disable automatic restarts on BSOD by going into System Properties, Advanced Settings, Startup and Recovery, then at the bottom in the system failure box uncheck "Automatically Restart". Then when you BSOD you the screen will stay up until you restart the machine

    Hey...

    Back with no luck.

    I've tested each mem stick and it boots up normal without any problems.
    Now it even shows the correct values for each channel(A,B,C), so i guess that wasnt the case.

    Here is the complete list of the BSOD codes I got in the past two weeks.
    0x000000C2
    0x00000024
    0x0000000A
    0x00000050
    0x0000004E
    0x0000001A
    0x000000C5
    0x000000DA
    0x0000007E
    0x000000F4
    0x000000D1
    0x0000003B
    0x00000019
    and
    afd.sys
    ntfs.sys
    ndiswon.sys
    rt64win7.sys
    C0000021a

    I guess I can say the BSOD's are less common since I've changed the settings in BIOS but the problem isn't solved.

    Thanks for your help

    Have you tested your memory with a testing program or just booted the computer with one stick at a time? An excellent testing program can be found here: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
