  1. Hi, this computer is 3-4 weeks old one, here is the parts:

    - Windows Xp Sp2

    - Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 G0-stepping

    - Abit ip35 pro

    - Antec sonata III with ea-500 psu

    - Samsung 320gb spinpoint t166

    - Inno3d geforce 8800gt 512mb

    - 2 x 1gb Dmg/Buffalo 800mhz ddr2

    So it has done so many bluescreens and random boots in gaming and idle that i cant take it anymore, i have run memtest with dual channel and single with both, no errors.

    I ran prime95 to see if its stable, well it was, same with 3dmark06

    i ran samsung hdd utility, no errors.

    I have used the drivers wich came with cd's and the newest, no diffe and also used 2 different types of antivir.

    i have only 4 minidumps, becouse i runned once ccleaner and it deleted rest of them :s

    Is there any other programs to run and solve this problem? Oh and i did the new pagefile, defrag and disk check.. Didnt help! :(

    EDIT: now when i runned memtest hci memtest, first it gave me a random boot, then it gave a bluscreen, this new dump is added to dumps

    What timings have you got the RAM set to? It may need a slightly higher voltage.

    Well i dont know what they should be, but they are now at 5-5-5-18 @ 1.8v

    Your new dump has 16 memory errors. Try bumping the voltage up, 2.0v at those timings should be enough to see if lack of voltage is the problem.

    Done, now hci memtest hasnt crashed yet, and new record came, 40% done (i have runned 2 times before, and best was 20-30%) so lets see, if this did help :)
