Hello internet,

I have been having a lot of problems with my computer. I built it myself. I have an ASUS motherboard, Corsair RAM (16gb), AMD Phenom II X4 945 Processor 3.00GHz, on Windows 7 (64bit).

The problems are as follows: computer would sometimes have trouble booting (not recently) and would make a screaming fan noise...

BS'sOD messages: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION...

Freezing here and there (not doesn't resolve)...

and just a few minutes ago I got this message on the startup (followed by a BSOD - SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION) "The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll." ...

If anyone cold help me with this, I would be forever grateful...I just want my old computer back...problem free :(

Best,

Sam

Yeah, I just took them out and put them back in again. It shouldn't be the RAM, I just got new sticks like less than a year ago...

Please check out all memory sticks and DIMM slots individually, see below;

How to physically test your Ram.

The following checks require the computer case to be opened so take the following safety precautions 1st, disconnect the power cord from the wall socket and take anti static precautions before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case.

Have a pencil and notepad to hand.
Remove each stick of Ram and blow out the memory slots.
Insert the first stick of Ram in memory slot one, reconnect the power and in the case of a desktop computer the video to screen cable.
Power up the computer and see how it goes.
Make a note of the results.
Repeat the procedure until the first stick of Ram has been tested in each memory slot and the results written down.
Remove the first stick of Ram and put it to one side on top of a piece of paper with the number one on it for identification purposes.
Repeat the procedure with all Ram until each stick has been tested in all slots, the results written down and the sticks identified numerically.
Please note that some MBs (motherboards) will not boot unless there is Ram in slot one so please provide us with your motherboard details, brand, model name/number and any revision number, these details may be found by the CPU, between the PCI slots and/or around the edge of the motherboard, once we have the MB details we can look for the user manual.

Next run SFC http://www.sevenforu...le-checker.html

I may not be able to reply until Saturday am UK time so I will ask for a colleague to take a look so that you are not kept waiting.

So I just tested the RAM modules and slots. All 4 worked on slots 1, 2, 4...none of them worked on slot 3. However, when I attempted to run 3 modules on the 3 working slots, but computer froze, then I went to 2 modules, them froze again....then I used 1....froze...now I'm using 1 module on slot 4...working fine for now...

I'll run that scan in a bit, just need to back everything up...

Just a FYI for future reference as the Patriot Ram that you have is not listed as being tested with your MB

For the best and most stable performance you should where possible purchase a CPU and Ram that have been tested and approved by the motherboard manufacturer, this is referred to as the QVL ( qualified vendors list ) understand though that there are too many products released for them all to be tested so other hardware will be compatible but not proven to be.
