Hi guys. Recently I have purchased a new computer. 2600k/msi p67a-gd65/GTX470 more info in my profile. I have constant computer freezing during booting, in bios, right after windows starts, during playing games or watching youtube. I have no idea what can be wrong. I heard that many msi p67a-gd65 owners have similar problems, but I`m not sure. Maybe it is my GTX470. Could you help me to read my .dmp file? I was also once able to take picture of blue screen (but it only appeared one time) and I included it to zip file. And also when computer freezes sometimes sound stays on normally, I hear everything like it suppose to be but screen freezes. I have no idea what to do RMA motherboard (I have to due to chip problems) or graphic card or I have to change something in bios. Please help me

Hi roland1989 and Welcome.
Your latest dump file has a stop 0x124 error code, which means blame the hardware.
See this thread for pointers:Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to tryThe majority of your dump files however (5 of 7) have a stop 0x116 error code: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR.

bought these gigabyte ga-p35-s3

2GB (2x1GB) CorsairTwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC2-6400

I have them already ..... still waiting for cpu.

I can't really test them and was hoping someone could tell if this difference in voltages will cause incompatability issues. Nothing is open so I could send the memory back.

I checked the corsair memory configurator and they have no listing for my motherboard.
I checked the gigabyte website and my memory is not listed but the cas4 version is.

I honestly think I'm getting through nearly all the questions someone can ask before they start a build.

Hey! I just bought Asus P6T mobo, with Core i7 920 and 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory. The problem is here, I was about to start to put the memory in their places but, I saw a warning sign, that tells me: According to Intel CPU SPEC, DIMMs with voltage may damage the CPU permanently. We recommend you install the DIMMs with the voltage setting belov 1.65V. I don't know what does this mean but could you tell me? And the voltage level thing in these memories is 1.8.

Thanks for your help. Fleshpound.

A:Asus P6T and Corsair DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory

The voltage shown in the memory specs is the the reccomended maximum voltage to be used with the memory.
The actual memory voltage used is controlled by BIOS and motherboard settings and since ASUS is aware of the Intel limitations, it will be less than that.
The Intel warning is a cover-our-rearend statement. It just means the CPU is designed to run with this voltage or less and that if you "overclock" your system your warranty is void.

well in my experience ram clock past some limit doesnt have much visible benefit (well benchmarks may say othervise) but real experiencie is not noticeable. I dont do extreme oc so i dont know if that helps in ocing cpu.
in my opinion main reason for upgade would be you use less of your ram slots

i think 4x4 is better than 6x2..

Hi: Installing PC3-1600 memory will not speed up the memory, as the fastest it can run is only 1066 MHz. Even the 1333 MHz memory only runs at 1066 MHz, which is the fastest speed of the processor. I can tell you that installing memory in any HP PC that has an Intel series 5 chipset which yours does (and uses notebook memory) is very hard to upgrade. I suggest you read this post and the one I referenced within this post, to make sure you get the right memory, or it will not work.

Hi everyone.

I just set up my friend's PC with the following specs:

Intel Core i5 750
MSI P55 GD65
Palit GTX 275
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz
Corsair 650TX

When I power it on I get three relatively short beeps and there's no display. The BIOS fails to POST I presume. After the 3 beeps there is no further beep or sound.

What could have gone wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I tried switching the RAM to the Transcend 1333MHz I'm currently using. The result was the same. No display. So I'm assuming the memory stick has nothing to do with it.


Forget it guys. I had the RAM modules plugged into socket 2 and 4. It's a little different on the MSI board. Googled and got the answer to the problem. It POSTed now.

I have a customer who brought in a gaming rig he "assembled" himself.....Needless to say there were issues. It will not recognize any PCI-e cards at all. The symptoms when his card is installed are a simple attempt at powering up but an instant later it powers off. With my card it powers on but shows no video. The only way to get video is to completely remove all external cards and run with the onboard card. The power switch on top is also non responsive but I think I can work through that by relocating it. Any ideas? My extra pci-e card may be burnt as well as I pulled it out of a similar system and it has been sitting unused for quite some time. The system also has Kracken water cooling which works fine. Any ideas? I'm a lot more break fix than gaming rig in my work. Maybe I'm missing a bios setting?

The computer won't boot giving the led code 00. Also ALL the pins look bent to me, should they be diagonal like that or pointing straight up?

Click the pics to zoom in.

With my 4690K the computer won't boot.

A:MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING do I have bent pins?

Double check the manual, but I'm almost positive 00 is not a valid code for those boards. Which would imply there's a problem with the board, not the CPU

EDIT: LIttle google'ing. If it's a D0, a few previous owners say it's a bios issue you can reset

Hey everyone!
I want to know if G.SKILL [ RipjawsX ] F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL(8Gx1) / F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL(8Gx2) RAM supports MSI Z77 MPOWER Motherboard

I searched in both support list and I didn't find, but I think it supports each other because the RAM is DDR3-1600 and this Motherboard support DDR3-1600, but I want to be sure!

NOTE: I want also to know if there is different between buying 2x8G or 1x8G (If I want to buy each one from different store with the same name) or there is no different?

NOTE 2: I will buy Intel Core i7-3770k CPU for my Mobo


A:Need to know the RAM that support the Mobo that I will buy!

First, I think that having 16GB of ram is completely useless. Second, if you are going with Ripjaws, you are mostly an amateur gamer, but I am sorry if I'm being stereotypical. If I'm right, I am sure you don't do lots of multitasking, or video and sound editing, making 16gb of ram just a waste, Two 4GB sticks, or 4 2gb sticks would do wonder with dual channel.

Third, if your motherboard RAM compatibility list does not show the ram you are buying, don't risk it. Ask someone directly from the company, or buy ram that shows as supported. Ripjaws don't do anything that other RAM sticks cannot do and will show any difference.

However if you are just going for looks, just doublecheck with an MSI CSA to see if it would be compatible with the board even if it doesn't show in the list.

Hello guys, my younger brother got a computer a while ago its a Packard Bell iStart 2311, the thing is its starting to run really slowly as it only has 1gb ram with 256mb being used by the graphics card. The thing is I do not know if it supports 2gb in each slot or only 1gb.

I can get 2x2gb for a very good price but not sure if each slot takes 2gb.

The motherboard according the PB website is a MCP61PM-AM . Even if someone can tell me the real name of it or who manufactures it. I have tried google searches but came back with nothing but people wanting to overclock there systems.
All replies appreciated!

My GigaByte Mobo (see system spec) was purchased in 2010. I'm considering buying an SSD for the system and I want to be sure my hardware supports it using AHCI mode. When AHCI is enabled I see the following verbiage displayed during the hardware boot cycle before the OS begins to load:
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS, Version iSrc 1.20E
Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives **
The part that worries me is the last sentence where it says "...supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives"
Does this mean the mobo does not support an SSD?

A:Mobo SSD Support?

I have a Gigabyte mobo purchased in 2009 that shows the same message during boot.

It works flawlessly with a Samsung 830 SSD in AHCI mode, running Windows 7.

Not 100% guaranteed, but I think you will not have any problems running an SSD in AHCI mode.

Hello SF members,

I see today uEFI is very popular, a lot of people use it...
I have ASUS P8H61-M LX2 (it have modern BIOS utility, etc. ).

So, does my mobo support uEFI?

And what is pros and cons of uEFI? I found that I need GPT formated HDD and GPT isn't recommend for HDD who have less than 2.2TB.

If my mobo support it, does I need anything other?


A:Does my mobo support uEFI?

uefi are the modern kinds of BIOS. They are better than older generation BIOS and their more obvious feature is that they have fancy graphics, they don't look like old DOS stuff. Most other things are "better" but from a customer point of view, there isn't a lot to talk about. It supports newer standards like GPT, and other modern stuff that wasn't possible with older generations of BIOS.

As for what you are saying about GPT, afaik UEFI can boot from GPT drives, but work fine with normal (MBT) drives as well. Who said that you need to use only GPT?

According to the product specs here, your BIOS is uefi already.

In any case, you can do nothing about it, as it's the manufacturer that decides what BIOS each board will have.

A:Will my MOBO support a new processor and differnet RAM?

generally it is better just to stick with 2 sticks of ram. So go with 2 x 2gb if you want 4gb. (This is overkill for most applications). 2gb should be plenty.

You should not have any CPU upgrade issues, but you may require a BIOS update. Read:

From my experience, I have not seen laptops that the cpu was not soldered onto the mb. But I could be wrong but most laptops require a heck of a lot of tools and experience to take them apart and put in a new cpu.

In the long run, it might be less aggrivation to just buy a new laptop as they are getting cheaper and cheaper.
You might want to let us know why you want to change the cpu?

How to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Basically i want to install an OS onto my ipod mini 4gb but my mobo does not support booting from a USB HDD, although it supports USB FDD and USB ZIP booting.

I was just wondering if there is a kind of "boot manager" like maybe on a bootable CD that will allow you to boot from a USB HDD (in my case my ipod mini 4gb).

If such i thing exists, which im pretty sure it does i just cant find it - could you please post the link to where i can download this "boot manager"

Thank you!

A:Hot to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Nope.. No such thing. It would be a gigantic task to put together something that would know about all USB controllers in existence and would successfully mask all the relevant BIOS interrupts to make the USB HD to look like a real hard drive..

A BIOS update is your only hope.

Havent been through all the details of the board but the homepage for your mobo says it can, i personally have several LGA1155 boards (Z77/Z68/H61) and none of them have supported ivybridge gen 3 chips out the box and all have required bios updates (even the Z77) i relctantly bought a cheap G620 chip just so i could update bios which i fear is the predicament you will be in, i contacted my mobo manufacturer (gigabyte) who said send us the board and we will flash it for you free of charge but you still have to pay postage and what 1-2 weeks depending where you are to get board back

I must say i think IMO you have gone for a rather budget board to pair with a rather higher spec chip not that it really matters

Hi Guys, I'm losing my mind trying to figure out why my system is randomly blue screening. I've been building my own pc for years but for some reason my latest rig just wont play. It's absolutely fine for days at a time including during stress testing and intense gaming sessions and then randomly BSODs during start up or shut down.

I've followed the posting instructions (hopefully!) and have attached a zip to this.

If anyone could help it would be MUCH appreciated!

Hey guys and gals,

I bought this mobo back in July and have not used it yet. It's the A1 680ISLI and I am not sure if It supports the new PCI 2.0 interface. Any suggestions/Answers???


A:Does the EVGA 680ISLI MOBO support the 8800GT

The 8800GT should be a PCI-e x16 interface, so as long as the mobo has that then you'll be fine.

Basically everything you can get these days has PCI-e x16 on it so it will most likely be ok

If you're not sure, google for pictures and compare what you have on the board.

I have a new Aopen AX63pro motherboard (ATX form factor) being shipped from California and wonder if my old AT power supply and case will work with the new board. If I need a new supply, is 300 watts "better" than 235w or 200w? If I need a new case, any thoughts on what's the best value? Does an ATX power supply fit into some AT cases (if there is such a thing) or is a dedicated ATX case/power supply needed?

Thanks to anyone taking time to offer an opinion.

A:Will old AT power supply and case support new ATX mobo?

you will most likely need a new case and power supply. Some AT boards will take either a AT or ATX power supply but I have not seen an ATX board that will do both. There may be some exceptions but it is a good bet that you will need to buy some new equipment.

That motherboard has 2 SATA controllers, one is SATA 2, one is SATA 3. The 2 white SATA ports are SATA 3, the 4 black SATA ports are SATA 2.

Is your hard drive plugged into one of the black ports? If no, then try that.

I'm guessing, but there may be a problem with the SATA 3 ports working until you can load the chipset driver. Which you can't do until you have an OS installed.
So my thinking is to install the OS on the drive while connected to SATA 2, install the chipset driver, then switch the drive to SATA 3, which will have no effect on the OS.

This is a workaround, not a solution. But let's see if that changes anything.

i have Intel Core 2 4500 CPU. Socket type is LGA775. Have 4 gb DDR 2 (4 sticks 1 gb each). I need a no-frill NON-overclocking simple motherboard for it. Right now I have gigabyte P-35 DS3L but the bios support is no good. I cannot use a USB keyboard to power on the computer. I don't want overclocking feature at all - just a solid mobo with a really good and working bios and preferrably a micro-atx.

A:need stable quality mobo with good bios support

I'd probably look to the Intel brand in that situation.

Here's a link to a bunch of micro ATX Intel Socket 775 boards at New Egg: - Computer Hardware,Motherboards,Intel Motherboards,Intel,LGA 775,Micro ATX

BIOS support going forward could be tricky because socket 775 is on the way out. You'd have to dig into BIOS features to see if they support USB keyboard power on.

I had a socket 775 Intel board for 4 years that had no issues at all, but I can't recall if it had that feature.

I've never dealt with Load Balancing before but want to know if this setup can handle load balancing, given that the router has load balancing?

What does it mean when my corsair 256 pc3200 is '400mhz' and how does that effect the cpu and mobo? (cpu = barton 2500 and mobo = abit nf7 v2.0)

Is there any type of perfect combination of 'mhz' and ALSO how does this effect overclocking???

me good with questions


A:memory/cpu/mobo mhz?

When you buy a cpu these days, you should make sure your memory runs at the same (or higher) FSB speed, as otherwise your cpu would have to wait a couple of cycles before it could use the memory...
yes, I know it's a simple explanation, but it gets the point across

In your case, you've got memory which is faster than your FSB (the barton is running at 333Mhz, and the memory at 400), which is a good thing

As far as overclocking goes, it doesn't really have too much to say, since you'll be pushing the chip/cpu higher than it's rated...
Then it depends on which company has produced the chips on the dimm (winbod is supposed to be a very good chip manufacturer)...

Corsair has some types of RAM which is very easy to oc, so you could be lucky... (As Arris, he's got it)

There isn't any "perfect" combination, but you should try to make sure your memory is equal to or faster than your cpu...
IMO, it's better to be "clock starved" than "memory starved"...

Hope this explains some of what you were asking about
(If not, tell us what wasn't clear/wasn't answered and either someone else will tell you what you're looking for, or I'll take another shot )

Hi All

Im buying a new system baser around the..
--- Epox EP-4PCA3+ (i875P 4DDR-DIMM 5PCI RAID SATA GB-LAN Audio Socket478 ATX)

My question is, what memory should i get? How does it work with DDR 400mhz // DDR 500mhz ? 500 is better right? Can i use it in my system? do you have to OC? I'm not really good at this so please don't be to technical in your answer, thanks

A:Mobo with what memory?

*trys not to be technical*
For that board you need RAM with a minium speed of that of the FSB of your CPU. If the RAM is slower than the FSB of the CPU the board wont boot. Assuming you will buy a Pentium 4 'C' or 'E' edition (200Mhz - 800Mhz effective FSB) to go with that motherboard you will need DDR400 RAM or higher. It is definatly worth getting two identical sticks and running them in dual channel mode - therefore doubling memory bandwidth - which is a good thing .
You will only need RAM faster than DDR400 if you intend to overclock your CPU. ONLY do this if you have a very good knowledge of the workings of your computer, a good cooling system (the retail coolers intel supply are NOT good for overclocking), and if you know exactly what you are doing. If you do intend to overclock then DDR500 gives plently of headroom for pushing the FSB all the way to 250Mhz (1Ghz effective) which is nice.
When buying ram for use in dual channel boards try to buy Dual Channel packs from high quality manufacters, e.g. Corsair or OCZ. Avoid unbranded ram or Crucial like the plague - the ram they supply is not good enough for high performance machines.

BTW - Welcome to Techspot :wave:

Hi. Easy question here. I am looking to buy a "ECS GOAL3+ + Sempron 3000+"
combo Mobo for a PC I'm working on. Any advice on what the best way to go with Memory?

Mobo's Memory specs:
"Memory: 2x 184pin DDR-400/333/266/200 DIMMs, Single Channel, Max Capacity 2GB"

Could I use a dual channel/dual stick RAM? what could that do to a "single" supported board?

Thanks in advance!

A:Memory Q for New Mobo

Here's the answer (it's frightening!)
There is no such thing as Dual Channel DDR Memory Modules.

ie Dual Channel Ram, just means that the two Dual Channel (labelled) rams, can work in a Dual Channel motherboard.

Therefore you can use any ram, that your board supports, including dual channel (dual really meaning single but can work in dual !! It's very hard to explain)

It seems they cannot obtain the requested case and 1000 watt power supply, but was also sent the following info. " When you do build it though be careful on the 4GB of memory for the P5N32-E board we have been unable to get the 800Mhz memory to work properly with more than 3GB installed. We recommend that our customers go with DDR2 667Mhz if 4GB is desired. Also XP home and all 32bit OS's only support upto 3.25GB so for 4GB you will want to use Vista 64bit edition." Can I get around this without going to Vista or reducing the memory?

Memory: 1 x 512 DDR 400 PC3200 UDIMM made by elixir.

I know the 'PC' numbers don't match, but i was assured twice by the tech guy that the memory is backwards-compatible with the mobo specs.

Was using the system ok for 12 hours, but found that it would not boot past the bios screen after that. I checked all connections - and found that if removed 1 stick of memory - was able to boot again. I presumed was bad memory so have returned both sticks to the store. After installing an unknown 512Mb to use until OCZ is tested i have found that again after about 12 - 13 hours machine will not boot. LED Indicator lights on Mobo tell me a memory failure again :-(

Has anybody seen this before - thanks in advance

A:Possible Memory - Mobo faults

maybe voltage spike... or you use the Y cable to connect the video card to hard drive, causing the error.. first thing, rent out or buy one the strongest power supplies (More than 500 is preferred to those SLi...) if not, you will have to ask and complain the closest computer stores.

I built a new pc with a i7 920 processor, an ASUS P6T deluve v2 mobo with 12GB of Corsair memory (6x2GB) and am having intermittent issues with the memory. The problem being that sometimes when I turn on the machine it will only recognise 8GB of memory, if I turn off the machine and reseat the memory it detects it all for a while and then it will lose the 4GB again.
It aslso won't run the Windows Experience index but reboots the machine part way through the test, I suspect this may also be memory related.
I will shortly update the BIOS to see if it resolves the issue but was wondering if you guys have any experience of this?

A:Memory issue with X58 mobo

Try running memtest86+ on each memory module to identify if there are any problems with the RAM sticks. I've heard that some motherboards often become unstable having all memory slots populated. Just a supposition. Actually such a thing should not happen.

Also go into BIOS and set the RAM timings and voltage to those specified by Corsair for your modules.

Do you think this will be too much for a first time mobo installer to setup?
Done all the other but not a mobo before.

Also is this on board video decent, I heard it was? Im not a gamer or overclocker, but I do enjoy some simple video games

I hope this is enough info to get some suggestions.

A:Mobo, CPU, memory on cheap

Thats a good set up but the onboard video will only be good for older games. You shoud get PC3200 RAM (400mhz). Most XP 2500's will run at 400 which turns it into an XP 3200.

DDR266 = PC2100.

There's a high probability that it can take anything starting from PC2100 up to PC2700, PC3200, it'll just run slower. Just make sure you get DDR-I modules & not DDR-II modules.

A:MOBO/Memory Compatability

If the motherboard manufacturer doesn't list the RAM on their compatibilty list then you may have some problem IF a problem occurs. That doesn't mean to say that there will be a problem.

At least if you stick to RAM on the compatibility list you have an avenue to get replacements / money back etc if there is a problem and their is no fault with the RAM itself.

Thats me talking from my own experience haha. I have a Asus P5N-E SLI mobo and I bought 4Gb of OCZ RAM (PC4600) without checking the compatibility list! I haven't run a full memtest on the RAM sticks themselves yet but my system totally locks up / crashes in some games if I have all 4Gb in. It has no problems at all with just 2Gb!

Although quite a few types of OCZ RAM are on the Asus compatibility list the particular one I have isn't!

A:Memory/MoBo/BIOS ???????

Thanks to you guys that viewed my question even though no one had a response. I wrote ASUS Help Desk and they said to RMA the board - sounded like a dead memory bank. I just built the machine two weeks ago and the last thing I wanted was a DOA MoBO. I guess I should have suspected something sooner as the memory usage was never over 30% even with games and video editing. I suppose it saw the memory - just couldn't use it. Weird!!! I have a new question if someone has experience I would be thankful if they shared it. I yanked the MoBo and plan on replacing it. I have a 0 RAID on the promise SATA connections. I am running XP Pro Sp 1a. Is it possible to just plug up the new MOBO and go. I haven't activated the OS as I suspected something wasn't right. Thanks again to those who stopped to help.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop running XP Pro. The motherboard has 4 memory slots. Each slot has a 256MB stick. The board can support up to 2G. I went away for the weekend. Before I left I turned off my computer. When I got home, I turned it on and it was caught in a restarting loop. Tried to boot safe mode, and from the XP disk. Same issue. Randomly decided to switch the memory around. It almost booted, so I took all memory out and put each stick in 1 at a time and rebooted each time. All memory is good. With slot 0 and 1 populated the computer works fine. When I populate slot 2 and/or 3, the problem comes back. Is the mobo done? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

A:Memory or mobo issue

I think that sounds like a motherboard problem. What you could try is choosing 2 sticks of the RAM and putting them in the two working slots 0 and 1. Then put the same two sticks of ram into slots 2 and 3 and see if it works. If not then it is a motherboard issue.

I just bought an Athlon 64 3700 (s939 san diego) processor with a A8N-E mobo....the mobo supports DDR400/DDR333/DDR266 memory....I currently have 2x512 ddr400 stick in the computer...I have some ddr266 kicking around....would it be worth it to install this extra memory or is the slower memory speed going to significantly degrade the performance of my computer? Or will the extra 512mb give me a little boost in performance dispite the extra 512mb of memory being at a slower speed?

Thanks in advance...

You can't mix RAM speeds. Either you run the DDR 400 or the 266, but you can't mix them in the DIMM slots.

My new motherboard (Asus M4A89GTD PRO) says it supports DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz memory. Although it is not listed, could I use 1600 MHz because its inbetween 1333 and 2000, or can I use only the speeds listed?

YES, it is fine on that Mobo. And your assumption is correct... the mobo also supports 1800 & 1866MHz!

How much memory is supported by Windows XP Home vs Professional? I've heard 2 vs. 4 and other times I've heard 4 vs. 4. And then at other times I've heard Windows XP home supports 4, but can only really access a maximum of 2 (?). Searching the MS website for this info only leads me to server edition specs. Does anyone know outright, AND would you also know where the official Microsoft info on this can be found? It's completely amazing how different responses there are about this when there can be only ONE single answer...

I have Windows XP Home, but would consider getting Professional for more memory support. All I need is to see some very simple specs on this matter. Thank you!

I have 4 Gig of RAM. Windows XP Pro reports that I have 3.25 Gig. I suppose that is how much it can recognize and use.

For anyone who knows loads about ddr memory realy.

I have been given 2gb of some memory and gutted cos my board didnt boot with it. On closer inspection the issue arose about the density of the memory.

My current mem is pc3200u but the nu stuff is pc3200R (aparently high density) works with very specific chipset i think mainly intel - HP boards.

Does anyone know how i would get them to work? heres and example from of the same stuff i have been given, NOT SELLING IT MYSELF THIS IS AN EG.

Hi there,

Can anyone give me advice on DDR memory compatibility with my ASUS P4P800S-X motherboard please?

I currently have 1 GB of PC2100 266mhz memory in my system but I want to upgrade. I can only afford a stick of 1GB Kingston DDR400 PC3200 serial number KVR400X64C3A/1G which (I hope) will work on its own in this mobo. I want to know if I could mix the 2 sorts of memory (DDR400 & 266Mhz) to give me 1.5 GB of memory. Next month i will buy another 1GB stick and replace the 512MB PC2100 so this is only a short -term problem.

Thanks for the advice.

Hey everyone, I'm at my wit's end. I recently bought a new BioStar TZ77B motherboard, i5 3470, and 8 gigs of Patriot ram. I installed them with my hard drive and graphics card (Radeon HD5570, made by Sapphire). Ever since I have been having BSODs, almost all related to memory in some way (Page fault in not paged area, memory management, etc.)

I've run Memtest86+ for 10 hours with no errors found, so I don't believe it is a hardware malfunction RAM wise. WhoCrashed has said that all the errors are either a) Kernel errors, or b) a rogue driver. I've done 2 re-installations of Windows (I'm running 7 Ult. 64), yet the BSODs continue. As such I am lead to believe it is a driver. That said, I do not know which one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:New MoBo, CPU, RAM, Memory-related BSODs ever since

Hello apmanley and welcome. Now from how I read your post you have renewed everything except the hard drive and the graphics card?

Now my next query is was the OS originally installed on the HDD while it was still used with the old mobo? Because if it was the OS (original) installation is tied to that old board. It is not tied to your HDD and when you fire up the new build then you should get a message to say the OS is not a genuine copy. .

Why it is blue screening I don't know but could possibly be connected in some way to this situation perhaps because of some corrupted items on your HDD.

I think personally you would have been better off buying a new drive and an OEM 7 of a version you like and then transferring your data from the old to the new drive. You would then have had in effect a new machine for the cost of a new drive and OEM and only need to have done that transferring.

I have an inexpensive home built PC with a shuttle AI61 MoBo
the board has three memory slots for SDRAM DIMMs. I have a DIMM in all three. The MoBo is only reading half the amount of available memory on 2 of the DIMMs.

128mb PC133 PNY reads as 128mb
128mb Mfg unknown (from tiger direct) reads as 64mb
256mb PC133 PNY reads as 128mb

With this combo it can't be the manufacturer or the size of the DIMM.

The Manual for the MoBo says it should be able to accept up to 256MB DIMMs.

the 128 mb generic DIMM has only 4 chips on it, the 128MB PNY has 8. the 256mb has 8 also. Could the density of the chips (mb per chip) have something to do with it?

Any insight would be appreciated.

My motherboard supports PC2-5300 and PC2-6400 RAMs, but it doesn't support dual channel memory. Does that mean PC2-5300 dual channel kit won't properly function on my motherboard?

A:Memory and Mobo compatibility question

That only means it will operate in single channel mode.

Still, the speed (PC-xxxx) doesn't mean everything in compatibility. You should go to Corsair, Crucial or Kingston website and look up your system/motherboard model to find guaranteedly compatible RAM. Easiest to use is Crucial's automatic scanner.

Is this a mobo issue or are the 2 sticks just incompatible with eachother? I ordered both from crucial so I kind of figured that all would be well, but I guess I was wrong. Tried calling Crucial tech support and the guy I talked to had no idea what to do.

Any ideas? Defective mobo? It's a PC Chips 817, with a athlonxp 1600, 300W power, so I have no idea what could be wrong. Thanks for your help.

go into your bios and set your memory timings to longer values. and, if you have the option, disable cpc override. this will, simply put, give the ram more time to work. if this works then you'll need to experiment to see whats the fastest timing you can run without restarting.
