Ok so I bought a new DH67BL intel motherboard monday, and tried installing my new stuff and can't get past a few problems.
First off, the board sometimes report the following problem during startup.
The following was a problem detected.
CMOS: battery failure. Right before loading windows XP 64 bit.
I've manged to install and run windows XP 64 bit, for a maximum of 5 hrs, but then it crashes with a BSOD.
So I have a i5-2500, a DH67BL motherboard, 8gig of 2X4gb ram of ddr3, an ocz SSD, and using a 8800Gt 512mb.
With a generic DVD-RW, I managed to install windows XP 64 bit, and then after 5hrs of browsing the internet and playing with my favorite in firefox, boom, BSOD, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, with a disk.sys reference.
0x00000050 (0xfffffadfc404e210,0x0000000000000000, 0xfffffadf29e57290, 0x0000000000000000)
fffffadf29e57290 base at fffffadf29e5300
I changed the video card for a GT9600 512mb, same thing, the same BSOD.
So I then changed the SSD for my 500gb hdd, and same thing after loading windows and the intel drivers, while I was stable for all of an hour, and then the same BSOD.
So knowing from my searches that it's the following.
This Stop message occurs when requested data is not found in memory. The system generates a fault, which normally indicates that the system looks for data in the paging file. In this circumstance, however, the missing data is identified as being located within an area of memory that cannot be paged out to disk. The system faults, but cannot find, the data and is unable to recover. Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, antivirus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
This Stop message usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM). If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Another cause of this Stop message is the installation of a buggy system service. Disable the service and determine if this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Antivirus software can also trigger this Stop message. Disable the program and determine if this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update. A corrupted NTFS volume can also generate this Stop message. Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. Restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. If the hard disk is SCSI, check for problems between the SCSI controller and the disk. Finally, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.
So knowing that, usually related to defective RAM, either main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM, I've excluded the HDD or SSD possibility, and excluded the video ram possibility, so my next test will be to see if using a single stick of ram will stop the problem.
My question is this, given my problems, and details, can anyone help me?
Because I bought all of it online, and I already paid a tech 100$ to be told my mobo needed to be hard started... (because it stopped after the post and wouldn't load the windows setup and then wouldn't start whatsoever) Anyway, so in a long winded way, I feel I got scammed there, I live in a very small city lost in the middle of nowhere, and I bought everything online, and would dearly love to know if I need to return my board, cpu, or ram for a replacement, as I only have 30 days, and when trying to solve those, it can take a while.
Thank you all for your help if you can, and a merry christmass to all!!!
