If so then if your processor uses 125 watts @stock speed and voltage, an increase to 3.6 Ghz (w/stock voltage) would increase your power consumption above 140 watts. Therefore, I had the sticks in the wrong spot. Another possibility would be to disable a couple of cores of your CPU - if Crysis stresses all 6 cores to near of fully 100% usage this would lower power consumption 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.

Hi tulx!I cannot say for sure, but in the end I believe my BSODs were due to the usb-ports on the mobo having a some sort of meltdown - figuratively speaking. If so you might want to try to put it back onto your main hdd if you unplug the HDD's that you don't need attached for this test. How to fix Windows 10 blue screen of death: Updating Windows Another obvious thing to check is that Windows itself is up to date. I'll try to look at your dump files later (I need to get some actual work for money done today) though.
I was watching Dexter while it happened, but If I saw correctly the error message was about the pfile being corrupt. eggsodusSep 19, 2011, 3:48 PM nikorr said: I did not know that, but I will take your word for it. 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
Removing it can speed things up but there would be a real problem if you ran out of RAM resources (but I've never done that, so I don't know exactly what 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 any errors.--For Paul, thanks for the lengthy The funny part is; I've gotten at least four different kinds of error messages on those BSODs. Several functions may not work.
Also, this is a good time to make sure that your CPU cooler is not chocked with dust - if so, clean it up!B) Disconnect any HDD's that you don't need Let us know what happens - hopefully it'll work out quickly, easily and cheaply for you! Plus, maybe I discovered another problem... http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/366507-lots-random-bsod.html Going to test them one by one as soon as I get home from work.
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. Paul Tomato said: RE: this being a S/W issue - It's plausible, but I doubt it. Hi CriticalMass048 ^_^, I just checked your motherboard specification and according to that, your motherboard supports upto 32GB of RAM which means it can handle 8GB sticks of RAM in This may cause a problem for your CPU but I'd doubt it (though going down to 1.40V may not work).
For example, if you notice that whenever you connect a printer via USB and try to print from Word you get a BSoD, but if you print to PDF you don’t, I don't think that the RAM was damaged because you put it in some random slot. I just ran Memtest86 for 9 passes and no errors occurred.Now I suspect that it MIGHT have something to do with the video card/drivers. I then followed the troubleshooting instructions, and am now running on 1x4GB instead of 2x4GB.
I will run the test longer tonight. http://invisibledetector.net/random-bsod/random-bsod-almost-every-day.html I ran the windows memory diagnostic and it did indeed find some errors (when testing all four sticks together). Is it possible I damaged the stick this way? I would suggest you to buy the RAM stick according to your budget. 8GB of RAM should suffice as of now since it allows you to do a lot of multi-tasking.
I did a search on your MB and found nothing to worry about, though it seems that I've read people talking about ASUS MB's and how some users have complained about Also, you may want to test w/PRIME95 - it allows you to stress your CPU constantly, though I honestly don't know how it stresses RAM (if at all).RE. When I tested the one by one, tests ran fine. http://invisibledetector.net/random-bsod/random-bsod-bcc-124.html I saw this on PC Advisor and thought you should see it too.
Paul TomatoSep 18, 2011, 8:11 AM Hey eggsodus,I've got a few questions for you:1) What's you power supply, and how old is it? 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). It is a no brainer if you purchased 4 RAM sticks since that would fit in all of the slots.
Have you monitored it under load? So, I wouldn't say that these errors are caused by avast.2) Your error meanings that I could find are (listed w/relevant bug check strings):BAD_POOL_HEADER: The pool block header size is corrupt.DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE: To test your ram you can use two modules at a time - just be sure that neither of the first 2 modules are the second two for the first round IF you have another power supply of sufficient rated power, this would be the time to replace and test.
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. I think so from what you said but if not you could have a memory mismatch - some modules require different voltages...Bedtime - vry late - good luck! I had 8GB, now I"m down to 4GB. navigate here 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
One is also associated with aswSnx.SYS (an avast file) but one is associated with dxgmms1.sys which is a DirectX file.
