  1. Heya Guys,

    Since I have built this PC I have been getting BSOD errors while playing games. And sometimes doing other thing but that is very rare compared to when i'm playing a game. (only done it once as far as I know when not in a game)

    Here are the specs of my system:
    CPU: AMD Athlon XP3200+
    RAM: A-Data DDR400 1GB 2x512MB (Dual Channel)
    Motherboard: MSI k7n2 Delta2 Platinum Edition
    Video Card: ATi Radeon X800XT Platinum Edition AGP
    Hard Drive: Seagate 80GB 7200rpm SATA 8MB Cache
    Optical Drives: 16x DVD-Rom

    All my BIOS setting are at thier defaults except for my FSB which has been corrected to 200Mhz since my motherboard kept detecting it as 100Mhz. I have not overclocked my system at all.

    All my temperatures seem normal.
    CPU is usually around 15-25c idle and about 40-45c load and video is around 20-25c idle and not sure what temp it reaches under load.

    At first I though this may have been caused by my cheap PSU so I bought a nice new Enermax Liberty 500W but unfortunatly this hasnt helped at all :( All it did was burn a hole in my wallet..lol

    My next assumption was my RAM so I have bought some Nice New OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 Dual Channel Platinum Ram. I have run Memtest86 and with both sticks of ram in my PC memtest86 produces alot of errors. But with only 1 stick of ram I dont recall getting any errors at all. I cant test my new ram because it hasnt arrived yet but when it does get here I can give you guys an update.

    I hope you guys can help me with this problem. I'm not sure wether this is a hardware problem (or which hardware) or a driver problem so I decided to post this here. I hope I have provided enough information if not just ask :)

    Here is another thread where I was getting help before being suggested to start a new thread. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic28970-pg1.html&pp=20

    Well my new RAM arrived this morning.

    I put it in and ram memtest86 and let it go for 1 pass which took about 1:10 and had absolutely no errors at all.

    Been playing a few games and have had no crashes yet.

    Hopefully this has solved my problems.
