0x00000050 (OxA766D9F0, 0x00000001, 0xB7F19A6F, 0x00000000)
jraid.sys - address B7F19A6F base at B7F16000

Dump of Physical Memory

I recently installed the following components...
MB GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD
4240pin DDR2 1333 OC 16GB Dual Channel
CPU AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core
Vid XFX PVT94GZAFG GeForce 9400 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16
RAM A-DATA G series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Chan.

Stuff I kept...
HDD Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST3200822AS 200GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s
OS Windows XP home 32bit spk3 (has all current updates)
PS 450W

After first having the BSOD, I backed up all HD contents on external HD & did a clean install of my OS. I reinstalled drivers for hardware...using what I believe to be the most current drivers. But, I still would get the same BSOD error.

I ran memtest using only 1 stick at a time, and there were no errors found.

I'm now at a loss of what to try. I've searched the forum for 0x00000050, and read many threads, but have not found a promising next step. Please help.

Under what circumstances does the the error show?

1: Try to reset the BIOS either by taking the CMOS battery for 10 minutes or by using the CMOS reset jumper. Disconnect the power cable before. Keep the BIOS on default setting, just set time, date and boot order (Make CD drive first boot device).

2: If not successful download Western Digital's diagnosic tool from here. Download Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS CD), burn the ISO file to create a bootable CD, boot with the CD and run a full test.

I'm able to use the computer quite a bit...then at apparently random times I get the BSOD. I've gotten up to 3 per day requiring a reboot.

I tested each stick btwn last night & this morning. They both showed no errors. Right now I'm running 1 stick of the paired set, the one I checked this morning. I have not had any BSOD yet today...7hrs of computer operation.

Could've my RAM slots just gotten some dust in them during the installation?
Should I blow out my 2nd RAM slot, plug the 2nd one in, and wait until I get another BSOD before doing anything else?
Or,should I go ahead and reset BIOS as you suggested above?

If you suspect a RAM problem then take the modules out, clean the slots with a soft brush, reinstall all modules and run memtest again. Usually memtest recognize problems in one complete test but let it run for about an hour to be on the safe side. If error are found then run the modules one at a time to find the faulty one. Please note: it could be the slot itself or the bass that are faulty so, sometimes, it's necessary to test each slot seperately (moving a good module from one slot to the other and running memtest for each slot).

If you don't find the problem in the RAM then try what I suggested in my previous post.

ok, so I ran Memtest on both sticks independently, then together...no errors detected.
I flashed BIOS via Gigabyte's most recent BIOS for my MB, but still had the same BSOD several hours later. (This should've done the same thing as resetting BIOS, right?)
Anyway, since I still got a BSOD I then used the CMOS jumper to reset BIOS. (just moments ago...I'll have to wait to see if I get the BSOD again.)

I also figured that I might as well run the Data Lifeguard Diagnostic you mentioned above...rather than waiting a whole extra day for a possible BSOD. The utility I downloaded via your link would not run the test. At start-up it popped up the msg that no Westen Digital hardware was detected. I have a seagate HDD.

I will post here if BSOD rears it's ugly head again. (Edit: yes, BSOD still here)

Sorry about the incorrect tool. Please download Seagate's tool from here. Create a bootable CD and run the test.

go here and get Everest home...install and
launch it...click the + by computer...click on sensor...get a screenshot and post it so we can check your temps and voltages...
also...download and install WhoCrashed from [url="http://<a%20href="http://www.resplendence.com/download/whocrashedSetup.exe"%20target="_blank">http://www.resplende...edSetup.exe</a>"]here[/url]..
This program checks for any drivers which may have been causing your computer to crash....

click on it...then run...then next...put a tick in accept...then next..put a tick in the don't create a start menu folder..then next...put a tick in create a desktop icon..then install.. then make sure there is a tick in launch whocrashed...then finish...then click Analyze ...
WhoCrashed will create report...you have to scroll down to see it
Copy and paste it into your next reply...

The Whocrashed link above wouldn't open...just the explorer error page.
Ok, I messed with the web address on the explorer error page & found the download...results are in next post.

From Everest:
Sensor

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sensor Properties:
Sensor Type HDD
GPU Sensor Type Driver (NV-DRV)

Temperatures:
GPU 40 C (104 F)
Seagate ST3200822AS 34 C (93 F)

fyi- since I've reset & messed with BIOS to gain stability, I've tried some different clock spd settings. Any setting that allowed OS to start had been equally stable/unstable...from slower than ratings to stock speed to OC. Currently I have CPU OC from 2.8GHZ to 3.3GHZ by increasing FSB from 200 to 240, but reducing the RAM multiplier to keep it at the stock 800MHZ.

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

33 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

go into the bios and set it to the safe settings..(may be called default or optimized)

check your device manager for any yellow ! or ? marks ...
to check...Click on Start and then Run...Type in devmgmt.msc and then press Enter
do you have your hard drives set up in a RAID array...
look in the bios and see which port your OS drive is connected to

BIOS settings back to 'optimized'

No RAID arrays set up.

OS drive is connected to MB at IDE channel 4 master

Device manager shows 2 yellow ? marks both dealing with USB drivers, 1 for a camera? and the other for receiver?...
Ok, one was for my webcam. I now have the driver(s)installed
The other was for an ATI remote wonder device...which went to my old vid card. I now have the USB for the receiver unplugged (had accidentally plugged it back in with other devices after installing the new MB)
Both situations are corrected - No yellow ! or ?

requested scrn shot below.
also, the first 32 of my 34 crashes in the past 2 wks were in 'optimized' mode. I only recently changed clock speeds. BIOS is now back to 'optimized'.

My MB has a bank of 6 SATA2 connectors, numbered 0-5. It also has 2 others labeled GSATA2_0 and GSATA2_1

I removed my HDD cable from GSATA2_0 & placed it in the SATA2_0.
The MB manual shows the distinction being that the bank of 6 supports RAID 0,1,5,10, and JBOD whereas the pair of GSATA2 only supports RAID 0,1.

BIOS now lists
IDE channel 0 master - DVD
IDE channel 0 slave - CD ROM
IDE channel 1 master - [none]
IDE channel 1 slave - [none]
IDE channel 2 master - HDD (apparently corresponds to SATA2_0 connector)
IDE channel 2 slave - [none]
and, IDE channls 3 & 4 none. (IDE ch.4 seems to correspond to GSATA2_0)
The IDE channel 0 master and slave correspond to my DVD & addtnl CD-ROM drives which use the larger IDE cables (not SATA)

Problem solved! 30+ hrs of PC running with no BSOD.
Thanks Happyrock & Skeptic!

It might have been simply plugging my HDD cable into different SATA port. But, it was probably the 2 unsupported USB devices...the old remote control receiver that I plugged into my new MB after the upgrades and/or the webcam that I hadn't installed drivers for.
:)
It could've been so simple. Anyway, I've learned much more about BIOS and drivers in the process & my machine is running much cleaner now than it would've.
Thanks again!

your welcome...and thanks for letting us know... :)
as for the cause...my money would be on the JMicron JMB36X RAID Driver...it was throwing all the errors...
moving the drive off the RAID ports stopped the issue
