  1. so it seems when i download certain games or try to play wow i get the BSOD. i can play Warhammer or Age of Conan all day long but soon as WoW loads BSOD, it will also BSOD when i try downloading things and sometimes if im idle to long. everytime i BSOD it says "Physical Memory Dump" not sure if that helps or not. This problem started after i did a reformat with my windows 7 Ulti

    This is what im running.

    Windows 7 Ultimate
    Asus P5AD2-E Premium Overcloaked 3.6Ghz
    Nvidia Geforce 9800GTX/9800 GTX+
    2GB Corsair DDR2 Ram 5200
    Direct X 11

    enclosed i have 5 of my most recent dump files zipped.

    I have ran Memtest and it comes back clean i will do it with individual sticks tonight since i have 4x 512MB sticks it may take some time.

    i have also narrowed it down to ntoskrnl.exe file showing up in all of my Minidump files if that helps any.

    if you need anything else feel free to ask i really appreciate the help.

    A few questions:

    1. Have you recently experienced an infection?

    2. Have you scanned for infections?

    3. Have you recently downloaded/installed any software?

    4. What security software do you have installed?

    5. How many Passes (not hours) have you run Memtest?

    Do the following and please note any Yellow Triangles or Red X's and what they flag:

    Start > Run > type in EventVwr.msc > Okay

    Sorry for the prolonged response my power was down because a drunk person took out 2 power poles.

    No infections started right after i reformatted

    No need to scan reformatted like a 2 days ago not done anything on the net

    ive installed quiet a few things. Warhammer, WoW, Age of Conan, and some misc files that i deleted.

    Trend Micro titanium but i uninstalled it just to see if that helped....it didnt.

    i did 8 passes but i went to the store today and bought 4GB of brand new RAM and it still BSOD on me.

    Im thinking maybe a driver issue somewhere but i cant figure it out lol. the Asus website doesnt have the windows 7 version of my BIOS update or mobo drivers. and idk what other drivers i may need

    Did you do the following? Start > Run > type in EventVwr.msc > Okay and if so were there any yellow triangles or red x's?

    Did you run a harddrive diagnostics scan?

    Since Memtest shows no errors then find the voltage specs of your RAM and compare it to the voltage setting in your BIOS. Do they match? Is your RAM found on your motherboard’s memory recommendation list? Keep in mind these lists are not exhaustive.
