BSODs on Windows 7 - Need help

  1. Hello,

    Recently I decided I was gonna buy Windows 7 Ultimate and at the same time get a new graphics (nvidia 260 gtx), new power supply (650W) and 2 extra gig's of RAM (same type as I already have etc)

    But now everything is installed etc I am starting to get quite a few BSOD's .. and not just the same ones either. They seem to vary but I can't seem to get more than 1 hour (sometimes not even 30mins) before i get one!

    Here are three of the report bits I managed to save:

    Problem signature:

    Any ideas on what it could be?

    Thanks.

    Without minidumps it is difficult to say. However, with so many error codes it could be a sigtn of corrupted memory. So we suggest a good standard diagnostic proceedure of running Memtest on your RAM.

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed but either one should work. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.

    Oh yeah Sorry i forgot about this, I fixed it ages ago..

    The problem was both of my old RAM sticks were corrupted and the two new ones I had were fine.

    So took both old ones out and left new ones in and no more BSOD's :)

    Thanks anyway tho.
