Windows 7 64bit - Random Bluescreen / Reboots RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a self built system running Windows 7 Home Premium in 64bit.  I have been experiencing random crashes and BSOD.  I thought it might be a software problem, so I have just re-formatted my system drive and re-installed the OS, but the problem remains.  I have saved relevant data of the most recent event to SkyDrive, as well as a dxdiag report.  I would've tried to diagnose the fault myself, but I don't know how to read the error report files.  Any help or advice would be appreciated, as I'm at a loss as to the cause.

    M/B - Asrock P45XE

    CPU - Intel E6500

    Ram - 2GB (2x1GB) Crucial DDR2 8500

    Thank you.

     

    Conrad.

  • Run a memtest, please. You have too many bug checks with different bug check codes.

  • Just a thought, did you OC your rig? And what timing and voltage are the crucial running at? Is at default or?

  • Hi,

     

    Never OC.  Default voltage and timings, which appears to be 2.02V and 5:5:5:15.

     

    Thanks.

  • Please copy the dmp files from the folder C:\Windows\Minidump first to your desktop, zip all dmp into 1 zip file and upload the zip file to your Skydrive [1] and post a link here, so that I can look at the dumps.

  • Hi,

     

    As you suspected, Memtest indicates a fault.  Planning to return to Crucial for replacement.  

     

    Many thanks for your time and help..
