    While I'm playing games, my computer has either hanged, rebooted itself, or gave me a BSOD. I have RMA'd my board a few times(due to other problems), i've ran Memtester over and over again on my RAM, and I'm unsure of what then ext step would be. I have a few crash dumps that reference ntkrnlpa.exe but no idea what that means heh.

    My Event logs mention Event 1003, Category 102,

    I will attach a few of my dumps here if you wouldn't mind looking at them.

    I'm not very good with minidumps - I probably know just enough to be dangerous. Regardless, I looked at yours.

    The one dated the 15th had an issue with your port.sys driver which is related to you sound card.

    The one dated the 17th, I couldn't figure out - looks like it made a call to win32k.sys outside of it's memory space.

    The one dated the 12th had an issue with kmixer.sys - which again is related to the sound card.

    Is you sound card on board the MB or a separate card? Have you been having any strange issues with you sound card? Are the drivers up-to-date?

    My sound is integrated and it should all be up to date... i'm usually pretty good on updating all of my drivers.

    Especially since i've been having issues lately, I have been updating all I can

    The problems only occur when i'm using up a lot of the resources, I.E. while i'm playing games. I do have a pretty small wattage PSU, but I am waiting on a 600w PSU that's in transit to my house. I wasn't sure if all of these problems could be related to that or not?

    A weak or marginal powersuppy could cause all kinds of erratic and unpredicatable problems. Keep us up to date when you get it.

    I'll definitely keep you guys updated, in the meantime here are the only other 2 crash dumps that I have had since my new board

    I believe that my PSU is too weak to handle all that is in my box, so hopefully the new PSU fixes a lot of problems

    Hi Nate92806

    I believe your problem is related to hardware and not software. My assumption you problem : 70% is related to RAM, 20% is M/B and 10% is PSU
