Hi,

I am trying to diagnose and fix my old PC. I am running Windows 7 SP1 64 bit operating system. Computer will go to blue screen randomly during games or web browsing. I have tried playing league of legends and world of warcraft on this comp. Sometimes just the game will crash, and other times computer will blue screen and restart. I have started to diagnose the problem myself, but I am novice at best in this aspect. I tried running memtest 3 times with both sticks in. Everytime the PC has bluescreened and restarted. I then tried one stick and same thing blue screen and crash. Next i tried the other stick in the same ram slot as previous 1 stick test, and the memtest passed at 200% with no errors. I am now running computer with the single ram stick that passed memtest. I tried running both games again to see if this solved the problem, but it did not. I have still been getting blue screen of death randomly. I am not sure where to go from here, so i am asking for help. I will provide additional information as requested. Thanks in advance!


My PC build is as follows:

ASUS NVIDIA AMD AM2 nForce 570 SLI MCP MOBO
2 x 2 GB Corsair XMS2-6400 DDR2
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS (Updated fresh drivers from Nvidia website version 8.17.12.8562)
AMD Atholn 64 X2 Dual core Processor 6000+ 3.01 GHz

Next i tried the other stick in the same ram slot as previous 1 stick test, and the memtest passed at 200% with no errors. I am now running computer with the single ram stick that passed memtest.

With that one apparently good stick, can you surf the Internet and do everything else - except play those games?

Are your temps good? Are you running at normal clock speeds (no overclocking)?

I had a similar issue on my PC a while back and it had to do with the video card. Are you able to try with another video card? One that is known to be working fine?

I can surf the internet with the one good stick. Sometimes it blue screens when flash is running. No overclocking, and I am not completely sure about temperature issues. I'll see if i can find a program to log my temps.

I may be able to snag a friend's video card, but at this point i don't have one handy.
