    Nice system :) Make sure C1E and EIST are disabled in the CPU's bios sections. See if this stabilizes your system

    thanks.... give this a try and monitor for stability

    ei... thanks a lot... i'll give this a shot and try to monitor the system for a bit.... i'll just post the results a long later..... btw...

    how did you come up with this solution.... i did some research about c1e and eist... they are more of a power saving feature and it won't hurt to disable them.... but i'm just curious^^v... i'm trying to learn debugging bsods... just trying... i found csrss.exe as the cause based on the minidump file generated...

    just want to know how did you come up with this solution...

    again thanks a lot.........

    If you look at my system specs you will understand that our systems are not that different. I have experimented with my own PC. 16GB of memory makes it a real multitasking monster. I can raise the i5 CPU speed to 4.2GHz, but only with C1E and EIST disabled
