Ok well I have had this problem with blue screens for a while now since I built my comp. Had an issue with a 8800gt that was in there. Sent it in, had it fixed and I figured that was the only problem (artifacts and bsods) well it wasnt. They fixed the artifacting on it but the BSODs are still there. Right now my specs are:
Core 2 Duo E6550
Intel DG33BU motherboard
2gb OCZ gold 800 (2x1gb)
Antec Earthwatts 500w
WD 250gb Sata2
Ok so I have been doing some testing on the system and I think its the motherboard that is having the issue. I have testing using prime95 and memtest86. Both fail with both sticks in (in slots 1 and 3) and both work fine with only one stick of ram in there at a time (1gb). Gaming, is usually smooth on less intense games (like wow or an older game) but newer games that take up a lot more ram while playing can cause random blue screens at random times usually after playing for a little while (like 30 mins to an hour). So my question is, is there something wrong with my mobo or is there something else going on here?
Here is a link to some pics I took of the ram and some temps at idle.
Let me know what you all think!
What is the BSOD error code? you know teh STOP 0x0007fb....etc, that would be the first thing i would investigate, then also have a look in the windows events viewer.
Also you say that with one stick of memory it works: is it always the same stick of memory that works fine?have you tested both individually with memtest for a long time?Did they comeas a pair?And have you set the timmings and voltages for them in the BIOS correctly?
Also what OS are you using?
At teh moment I don't really think you can say it's the motherboard at all.
