    Hey, just happy I could be of help. :) I hate when people have PC/laptop issues.

    All of us here are volunteers. Some are professionals and others are not and its a great community.

    Also, thanks for letting us know the issue is apparently resolved. This will help others and is another reinforcement that not all memory corruption reads are due to the memory itself but rather the voltage settings. I personally have noticed this trend increase in the past two years.

    If you continue to have stability please check in one more time in a week and give us an update.

    Good luck!

    im gna put up the voltage to 2.3 now and its weird but it seems to happen mainly when i access the external hdd. right now i was unraring a big game file and watchin a movie. and i fast forward it a small bit and everything seemed fine but then 5 minutes into the movie it crashed agai.. and the worst thing is the bsod doesnt leave a minidump file

    so i cranked it up to 2.3. started unziping a file and watching a movie and fast forwarding it to random places and boom system has haulted:( ohh im so frustrated.!!! is it possible for an external hard drive to have an impact on the pc? maybe its becouse i havent installed drivers.?

    Ah Nuts! Yes, an external harddrive can cause the issues you mention. You were still correct in setting the memory to the correct voltage.

    Question: Prior to Fastforwarding the movie was the system stable?

    Also, what were you using to fastforward, i.e. hardware?

    yes evrything was fine till i opened a HD .mkv file with WMP and fast forwarded it on the searchbar with my mouse and then it froze on the bsod. what im going to do is ill copy the files that i was playing at the time to the computer. unplug the external and uninstall it and do the same thing but from my internal HDD and ill share the results with you..


    regard maciek:)

    We've seen a lot people here deal with the same kind of issues with external harddrives.

    wel i didnt get a single bsod with the external pluged out and the faulty stick out so far although i did get an error with the stick in and without the hard drive.

    did you read the minidump by any chance? what information does it contain?

    regards maciek

    wel i got the bsod again today watching a movie with the external pluged in, turned off the pc pluged out the external played the movie again got the bsod again without the external so that means its neither the external or the ram. so i looked back to when my pc was grand and the only thing i can remember changing is the motherboard and sou8ndcard.. i pluged out the sound played the movie and no bsod. fast forward rewind... no blue screens at all. i hope this was the fault but i remember having the sound out and getting the bsod anyway... maybe its the ram AND the sound.. i dnt know what to think of it anymore.

    There is none.
    This BSOD doesnt shut down itself and doesnt leave any minidumps. in the event viewer its just described as kernel power loss because i have to shut down the pc manually. im really thinking its the sound card now. i will have to get a different one and try it out. i read a few topics about the sounblaster audigy sb0570 and loads of people had problems installing the drivers on windows 7 as if it was incompatible.

    Because if it is the sound card we could search for one that will work within your budget.

    Many people have experienced issues with Creative's sound drivers.

    Okay, so what happens with both sticks in but the external harddrive is either not attached OR you don't watch movies on it?

    If this is a single minidump file just attach as is to your next post. No need to zip 1 or 2 files; 3 to 5 then zip using the Manage Attachments options here at TechSpot.

    I am having trouble downlaoding from that link.

    yes but you see the file is too big apparently.
    "Your file of 273.4 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 200.0 KB for this filetype."


    i just got another one now btw

    where will i upload it then?

    A zip file should be able to compress it; are you getting this message when you are trying to use the Zip option?

    What are the error codes?
