    Yeah you can adjust it, it can either become automatic or manual, when you select it manual, you can adjust certain parts of the speeds, the parts that i wrote earlier in the thread. It doesn't allow you to change voltage though.

    I'm thinking that it isn't a RAM issue as it is a motherboard issue; just a thought.

    I'm thinking you may be right, but I'm a student, and can't really afford to buy a new motherboard, so i'm trying my best to do this DIY style..

    That is a very strong indicator of RAM issues.

    Its got to be an issue between memory and motherboard compatibility

    Have you guys ever encountered a problem like this before on the forums?

    Okay, what is the exact model of the motherboard once more, if you gave it earlier...

    Of course we have... Not usually dealing with a 6 year old or older motherboard though

    A thing we haven't thought about, what about a faulty PSU?

    Also , I've noticed that my computer doesn't BSOD as much when i'm just browsing the internet and doing things that don't use up the computer's resources, but as soon as I play a game, like World of Warcraft for example, the blue screen occurs seconds into gameplay. Don't know if this info can help but, worth noting anyway.

    Oh, and a nooby question: could this be a virus?

    Yes you could try a new one

    "Oh, and a nooby question: could this be a virus?"

    What antivirus/antimalware programs are you running? Are they updating and running properly?

    I had MSE, managed to run a full scan before it stopped working, found nothing. Then I got AVG , but it says that anti-virus features are not active, and when i try to enable them, nothing happens.. But i read on AVG forums this can be due to hardware issues..

    Which leads back to the RAM problem.. Either faulty motherboard or low voltage... So the only thing i can do is try to find a BIOS update online, which i'm struggling to find.

    So you have no antivirus protection now? What other hardware do you have installed in this computer?
  20. Stonerose92

    Stonerose92 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 63

    No, and I don't have any other hardware but the minimum, keyboard/mouse, graphics card, etc. Can post a full speccy if needed.

    What's the make and model of the video card?

    But I guess the only thing to do now is look for a BIOS update right?

    If anyone could find me a BIOS update, with the info i posted a bit earlier in this thread, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Took it to a computer shop, turns out it was the graphics card, very surprising
