New Comp, Multiple Random BSOD's, Minidump Included

  1. I just helped my buddy build him a new computer, and after getting everything installed and windows installed . A few hours later I get multiple reboots and changed the settings in MyComputer/props and now it is multiple BSOD's. There seems to be 2 or 3 different BSOD's, I have recieved them a few hours, mins, and at logon, All random.

    I have read through the posts and I have opened the case up for better circulation, checked connections, tryed to get more of a direct connection of power to my HDD. I tried running memtest, but it was not booting properly. I think I have most of the drivers up to date, and I even virus scan and spyware, but of couse there was none. That will change after 20 mins of conectivity to the I-Net, but that is beside the point.
    I am dreading it could be a faulty part, but because they are all new I am not quite sure how to single them out besides replacing them one by one.

    I was just wondering would be so kind and take a look a my case.
    Most of the minidumps are also included.


    I have put my system specs in my prof, but I will put them here:

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-K8NS (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DDR DIMM, Audio, LAN)
    with Chipset nVIDIA nForce3 250, AMD Hammer
    DIMM1&DIMM2: 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM
    Vid Card: Gigabyte Radeon 9250
    Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
    IDE Controller: NVIDIA nForce3 250 Parallel ATA Controller (v2.6)
    Disk Drive: Maxtor 6L120P0 (120 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133)
    CD- ROMS:
    MAT****A DVD-RAM SW-9585
    MITSUMI CD-ROM FX120T !B


    Thanks,
    JBob

    Hi
    Have you run any diags like memtest86 to rule out hardware probs?
    What about heat, how hot does the cpu get?
    If the hardware's ok, my guess is it's driver related, mobo, vid, etc.
    Can you try another nforce driver?

    Hi Jbob00,

    You attached 10 minidumps here. 5 of them are inaccessible which is the symptom of faulty ram. 4 of them are crashed with bugcheck code 8E and one is crashed with bugcheck code 24.

    Conclusion
    The culprit is faulty ram.

    BugCheck 1000008E, {c0000005, 80580ec1, f4811c28, 0}
    Probably caused by : hardware ( nt!NtReplyWaitReceivePortEx+3f4 )

    nt!NtReplyWaitReceivePortEx+3f4
    80580ec1 808b45e0a3e055 or byte ptr [ebx+0xe0a3e045],0x55

    SYMBOL_STACK_INDEX: 0
    FOLLOWUP_NAME: MachineOwner
    SYMBOL_NAME: nt!NtReplyWaitReceivePortEx+3f4
