  1. my pc consists of

    AMD64 3200+ (939 pin) oc'd to 2.5ghz
    2x512mb crucial pc3200 ram
    maxtor diamond max 160gb HDD
    NEC ND-3500AG DVDRW
    samsung DVDROM
    hiper type r 580w psu
    gigabyte geforce 6600gt pci-e
    audigy 2 zs
    netgear usb wireless

    the pc restarts often. latley just once a day. some of the times 4 or 5 times in a day.

    it comes up with BSOD IRQLnot less than equal or something like that.

    event ids: 1003

    i have tried memtest and my memory passes on all tests atleast 5 times. i underclocked my ram aswel, to no avail.
    powermax doesnt show any faults either.

    i have included 5 previous minidumps. any help would be gtreatly apprechiated.

    Hi,

    The culprit is faulty ram. You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty ram can pass memtest.

    Suggestion
    1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
    Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
    2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot. Reseat video card as well.
    3. Downclock the ram. Check to default setting if you video card is overclocked.
    4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
    5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
    6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
    For example : DIMM1 and DIMM2 do not have the same timing.
    DIMM1: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.0-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz)
    DIMM2: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    DIMM3: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    7. Make sure that your PSU have adequate power to drive all the hardware including USB devices
    8. Run chkdsk /r at command prompt

    If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
    1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
    2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

    i have checked temps, ram power, everything seems to be fine. it just restarts. maybe the ram is faulty and memtest isnt detecting it. ive even clocked everything down with the same problem.

    well my pc has been stable for 2 days. i noticed that 2 of the errors were caused by wg111v2.sys which is my netgear wireless usb adapter. another was the usb error. so i decided to reinstall the drivers. currently no problems. i also set the page file to 0, restarted, defragged and set the page file back to normal. i dont know if that helped or not

    Your instability could also be caused by over-clocking. The processor can become unstable without exceeding the max tempeture recommended by AMD. You have to remember that the memory controller is on this processor, unlike other brands of processors. Hence the memory problems mentioned by cpc2004. Forget the over-clocking when it comes to Athlon 64's, if you need more processing power, start saving your pennies and buy a bigger one.
    Not a big fan of Netgear, I too have had issues with their products...

    Hi,

    The crashes have different symptoms and it seems it is memory corruption. You have resolved the problem by upgrading wg111v2.sys. Repost if you need further help.

    run memtest86 overnight. You will find bad ram if there is some. Although memtest isn't perfect, it is very thorough and catches bad ram 99% of the time.
