Frequent BSOD's..24, 50, 7E, 8E

  1. I just built my first PC on Monday, and I've been having a hell of a time. First, the video card was defective (eVGA 6600GT), and I'm pretty sure my RAM is faulty (PQI Turbo 1x1gb PC3200). I already ordered a Sapphire X800Pro 256mb and Corsair XMS 2x512mb RAM.

    Specs:
    MSI K8N Neo4 mobo
    AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice
    PQI Turbo 1x1gb
    (currently, old card) PNY GeForce FX5200 PCI 128mb
    Xion case w/450w PSU
    Seagate Barracuda 200gb 7200.7 UATA/100
    Pioneer DVD-RW
    Windows XP Professional w/SP1

    It seems like just about any program I run gets an error and needs to close. IE, Firefox, Download accelerator, AIM, HL2, etc etc.

    I also get frequent BSODs...24, 50, 7E an 8E. Also says something about Win32k.sys.

    I will post pictures of the BSODs for full details, and I can post my minidump files as well.

    I'm also getting a few other BSODs. Pics here:

    Sorry about the blurriness...

    I changed my RAM timing to 2.5-3-3-7 and some of them went away. Now I mainly get 50, and 8E, and occasionally 24 and 7E.

    I have a Minidump zip but it's ~480-500k and can't attach it.

    Any help is very much appreciated....

    Hi Matt,

    The culprit is faulty motherboard.

    Thanks CPC...I'll take your word for it. Can you please recommend a good motherboard for me? I want to order this ASAP so I can return mine before the return period expires.

    Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

    -Matt
