BSOD prob - Windows XP

  1. Hi

    I'm really hoping someone can help me out here with a BSOD problem.

    Just built a new PC and have been getting BSODs or freezes when running flight sim x. Have changed graphic and sound cards but neither has helped. So far I've done the following:

    - ran memtest through 8 passes and no errors
    - ran Orthos for an hour with no errors
    - ran checkdisk; no major errors and no bad sectors
    - defragged the HD

    My PC spec is:

    Mobo: Abit IN9 32X Max
    CPU: Intel E6850 (not overclocked)
    Graphics: 8800GTX
    HD: Samsung 500Gb SATA
    Sound: Creative Audigy
    Network: Linksys Wireless-G (PCI)
    PSU: Corsair HX620W
    O/S: Windows XP Home Edition

    I realise FSX is a sod of a game but I've run it at the same settings on a PC with lower specs and have not had the crashes.

    The minidump from one of the crashes is below:

    The minidump Win32K.sys doesn't tell us much... Try lowering your memory timings or clear the bios and see if the BSOD stops
