    I downloaded your mobo manual and it appears you are correct: There doesn't seem to be a memory voltage option. Unfortunately some motherboard model BIOS are designed this way.

    Why? Who knows, but it makes absolutely no sense especially when someone like yourself really needs to see the memory voltage settings. I'm very suprised Gigabyte did this because they are a Tier 1 motherboard manufacture.

    * My next suggestion is to contact their tech support directly and give them the following:

    a. Mother model and Issues.

    b. Minidump reads with error codes and cited probable causes, i.e. corrupted memory.

    c. All diagnostic steps taken.


    *** I have often found email contact, though slower, can get more indepth answers.

    For whatever reason one dump was corrupted and thus unreadable.

    One is 0x50 but kept repeating that the module list was unable to load due to corruption.

    And the third was 0xA and specifically cited memory corruption as the issue.

    Nothing new, unfortunately.

    damn... wonder how they became corrupt. and memory seems to be the source but from which component lol. im getting a new hard drive tomorrow/day after, if that doesnt do anything i think i should look at ram, as for the BIOS problems i dno if they would go

    im starting to believe i need a new graphics card, i ran linux yesterday perfectly, no crashes and no errors. the only thing that changes when i run linux is my graphics drivers dont run because theyre not compatible with linux unless you find a manual way to do it. so i think its a driver related issue to do with the graphics card, im ordering a new one tomorrow and it will be here for tuesday so, next day delivery. when it gets here ill tell you if i still crash :) wish me luck lol

    There is a VRAM test for your video card. 0x50 errors can be caused by this but I've only seen it happen occasionally; the overwhelming memory issues have been with the system RAM.

    If you go to MajorGeeks.com thay will have the VRAM test that you can download for free.
