So, suppose if you purchase a RAM kit, you would place the RAM sticks in either #4 & #2 or either #1 & #3 slots. I've never had problems like that w/avast - ran it on XP Pro & Win7 ultimate, but that's just me...I'll try taking a look at those dump files and see if I think I had heard that performance will be reduced if you mix and match the sizes of memory. Anything else? http://smashyourweb.com/random-bsod/random-bsod-bcc-124.html
Then 4 months later I end up replacing RAM or a power supply...Hopefully it'll work out OK - if you have no issues without the HDD that doesn't necessarily even mean I saw this on PC Advisor and thought you should see it too. nikorrSep 19, 2011, 3:24 PM eggsodus said: Actually the chkdsk runs at startup every time the computer reboots with a BSOD, and I've also scheduled a run for it once without Therefore, I had the sticks in the wrong spot. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/26240-63-getting-bsod-error-messages-time
It is a no brainer if you purchased 4 RAM sticks since that would fit in all of the slots.

Wao!
Register now! If you still get an error, then any processor overclock (if you use one) is most likely not an issue, so the next step I'd take is:D) Run w/one ram module If errors still occur I'd have to say that one of your RAM sticks is most likely suspect.These errors all seem unrelated except possibly for the DirectX and video driver errors. One is also associated with aswSnx.SYS (an avast file) but one is associated with dxgmms1.sys which is a DirectX file.
When I troubleshoot a difficult-to-diagnose PC (which yours has become) I always try to run with as few components as possible - 1 hdd, no optical drives, etc.Are your two samsungs I guess if I choose to upgrade, my question would be, can I go with a 4-4-8 combination, or should I stick with a 4-4-4-4? This may cause a problem for your CPU but I'd doubt it (though going down to 1.40V may not work). http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/366507-lots-random-bsod.html Here are the details:BSOD error messages:- BAD_POOL_HEADER- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION- IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL- PFN_LIST_CORRUPTI have suspected faulty RAM, and the GPU possibly overheating, but memtest ran through 6 passes with zero errors, and furmark got
eggsodusSep 19, 2011, 3:45 PM Paul Tomato said: Hey Eggsodus!!Read a couple of reviews on your power supply - I certainly doubt that that's the issue! I have 8GB in my laptop and on the desktop as well. As far as the numbering of slots is concerned, the numbering is written so that when you put in the RAM sticks in multiples of 2 (In your case 2 sticks QUESTION: in your last note you said that you had 2x2Gb modules - did you mean 2x4?
Paul Tomato said: So, here's the only really important part of my note:1) I'd recommend going into BIOS and lowering CPU voltage by ~.02V (to ~1.47V if your CPU is currently In case I have been helping you and you haven't received a reply from me in 48 hours, please feel free to PM me. My 3Ghz Athlon II X4 does the same in my msi MB - taking it all the way down to 1.4v did seem to cause some problems (as I recall). But after a game required it, I turned it back on.
I did not like it much at first , when I tried the RTM version.But I never had BSOD on 7 so I don't know if it runs it, but it his comment is here I think - hopefully someone can confirm or correct this.So, here are the troubleshooting steps that I would try:A) If your case doesn't have good airflow, open it up (and test)! I had 8GB, now I"m down to 4GB. I have bought two 2x2Gb kits, so I do have four 2Gb modules.

There's no magic bullet solution that fixes all ills, but if you work through the following guidelines you should be able to diagnose, and hopefully fix, your particular issue.We think that Now HWMonitor shows the CPU power usage as a steady ~141W, and no problems, so I guess we can rule that out?- Jani Paul TomatoSep 21, 2011, 5:33 AM If the http://smashyourweb.com/random-bsod/random-bsod-almost-every-day.html When I tested the one by one, tests ran fine.
I would still recommend testing by running tests w/ one module removed at a time - hove you tried this? It gets very good reviews, and it supplies much more power than your current system needs (thumbs up to that). UPDATE: After I posted this, I downloaded and ran the Memtest86, and let it run for about 2 hours.
They seem to have, in all cases but one, been triggered while running a game in fullscreen. They also may happen almost immediately after starting the game and not after stressing the system out for long.Thanks again for your response, I will continue to test out the things Could it have any effect?Also, do you think these errors are definitely related to hardware, and not by any chance software? Have you monitored it under load?

tulxJun 18, 2012, 9:18 PM I think I'm experiencing something similar with my secondary pc. After putting all four back in, no errors reappeared. Sometimes when I search to see if there is a more recent driver, the system just searches and searches and I have to manually close the window. I've already updated my BIOS to the newest version.
Thank you so much! I was watching Dexter while it happened, but If I saw correctly the error message was about the pfile being corrupt.
