BSoD with new 8800gt

  1. I am sporatically getting a BSoD with my computer. I am not sure what exactly is causing the problem, but I believe it may be my video card.

    The error report is as follows

    BCCode : 9c BCP1 : 00000004 BCP2 : 8054D5F0 BCP3 : B2000010
    BCP4 : 00010C0F OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    I have updated every driver on my machine.
    I have update windows XP, which is the operating system I am currently using.

    Any advice as to what may be causing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    What drivers did you install with the Nvidia 8800GT? If the drivers were off a supplied CD, go to the Nvidia website and get newer drivers from there

    I have the latest driver from Nvidia.

    Is there anywhere I can find the meaning of the BSoD code?
    I've been looking around for one, but so far have had no luck.

    This single dump points to "Memory Corruption"...

    kpo6969's Google suggests memory issues too

    Thanks for the help. I believe you all are absolutely correct, because since my last post I have started to have another issue where my computer will go into post and not get past the memory check until I remove the memory and reinstall it. I will let you all know if replacing the memory solves the problem.

    Another possible issue:
    How many amps is your psu rated at?
    Hows your case cooling?

    8800GT + X2 6400 = alot of heat+power usage
    your cpu = 125w
    regular cpu's = 89w
    energy efficent = 65w (Brisbane)

    I'm not sure about the Amps of my PSU, but here is what it has listed on Newegg...

    Input Voltage Auto Switching ( 90-264V )
    Input Frequency Range 50/60 Hz
    Input Current 10A @ 115V, 6A @ 230V
    Output +3.3V@24A, +5V@24A, +12V1@20A, +12V2@18A,
    -12V@0.5A, +5VSB@2.5A

    and for my memory...

    Kingston ValueRAM
    Model KVR667D2N5K2/2G
    Type 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
    Capacity 2GB (2 x 1GB)
    Speed DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
    Cas Latency 5
    Voltage 1.8V


    And I have made sure that the memory was placed in the proper slots according to my mobo's manual.
