Random Apps Crashes in Vista64 with Asus P5K

  1. Hi,i´ve got some issues with random apps crashes.
    I installed vista x64 yesterday because i bought a new MoBo (Asus P5K), and im using the same components that i have with previous MoBo (Asus P5B) that worked perfectly.
    Now some apps crashes without any reason (Messenger, Firefox etc..) and i got a BSOD and sometimes Aero disables by itself .
    I think that is a problem with the P5K but im not sure at all, i also passed Memtest86

    My system Specs are:

    Proc:Intel Core 2 Duo 6750 @ 2.6 Ghz
    Mobo:Asus P5K
    RAM: 4 x 1 GB Kingston DDR2 800
    GPU:XFX Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB
    HDD: 3x 300 GB SATA Seagate
    DVD: LG H44N
    Other HW: Xbox 360 USB Controller

    I´ll attach dxdiag and the minidump files.

    Thanks for your time and sorry for my english.

    Your error is an 0x3B SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION


    This error has been linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics drivers crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code.

    8800 card drivers and Vistra have a number of issues. Google 0x3B and Vista and you will see. It may mean you need to update your Nvidia drivers.

    I´ve got the last drivers from Nvidia also i tested a new thing...i remove one of my RAM modules and suddenly all its right so i think that the problem is with memory mapping feature (i turn it off and leave system with 3 GB), that can be possible?

    Thanks R44!

    You're welcome! As for memory, nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to RAM.

    I´ve read that the problem is caused by having 4 modules plugged in and that i have to lower the speed from 800 to 667 mhz but its something strange because my old MoBo (P5B with intel 965) worked great with them. And its supossed P5K can handle it as far as it have better chipset...

    When I read you had a ASUS motherboard RAM is one of the first things that comes to mind. They make great boards but they are well known about being picky about RAM and all that accompanies it.

    So are you able to run four sticks at the lower speed?
