  1. Many people seem to be having this issue and i've yet to find a solution.
    700w coolmax psu
    460 gtx se
    soundblaster audigy 2 zs
    pentium d 3.6 (dual-core)
    2x1gig pc2-6400u ram sticks
    biostar tp45e mobo
    wesdigi 1.5 tb digital caviar green 64mb/cache
    dont have a computer "case", its kinda like a stand, shits mounted and everything, gets great airflow

    I'm now using Windows 7 Pro 64
    Upgraded From WinXPPro64, freeze with both

    Though I have got a couple blue screens, freezing seems to be a lot more common. One of the blue screens said something along the lines of PFN_LIST_CORRUPT.

    I have 4 sticks of the same ram, can only use 2 at a time with this motherboard, tried swapping 2 for the other 2- still freeze. I've ran memtest86 no prob

    Processor never exceeds 41c, usually is 25-35c. (This info is from booting up after a freeze)

    switched to onboard sound after unplugging soundblaster

    tried a different video card
    switched sata connector slot

    defragged

    drivers dealt with etc...

    windows up to date



    one question; should I unplug the video card before installing drivers? i normally don't, but i've ran out of ideas.

    0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT is probably the single strongest error code that indicates corrupted memory. How long did you run memtest? The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes and the more the better.

    Also, find the voltage specs of your RAM and compare it to the voltage setting in your BIOS. Do they match? How about the memory timings?
