    It is no need to open the new post. I prefer you can use the old post so I can trace back the history record of your problem.

    What is hardware specification of your new and old PSU? Does your new PSU has higher electrical power than the old PSU? You told me that the system got stable for one week after you clean up the dust of the old PSU. Probably it is overheat issue. Do you use AMD CPU?

    Maybe software error at nvmcp.sys and it is the motherboard device driver. Upgrade nvmcp.sys.

    Hi FishBallFung,

    After further investigation, the crash maybe related to USB device driver. Do you use USB mouse and keyboard?

    You can download the motherboard device driver patches from the motherboard manufacturer's website.

    Hi FishBall,

    From the bugcheck code, they are all related to faulty memory.

    You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty ram can pass memtest.

    Suggestion
    1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
    Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
    2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
    3. Downclock the ram
    4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
    5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
    6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
    If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
    1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
    2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

    After the check of the ram, there were 16 errors.......
    and I will do further action to prove which is the faulty one, because I got two 256MB ram.
