Greetings and Salutations:

I am new to this Forum Board but not to computers... I look forward on gaining some insight to my issue...

I am an ASUS N90Sv-A2 notebook and just had the memory replaced (last week) not too long ago and I am still receiving BSODs. The error message that is going along is a Kernel In Page Error with a Stop bit value of 7A. You can find my notebook specification here: ASUS N90Sv-A2

I know of a hardware limitation of all total drives on an individual setup for Windows 7 (Ultimate) x64, at least for my notebook, is a total of all eSATA drives not totalling over 1TB. My Asus notebook is running a pair of 250GB hard drives and a single 500MB hard drive. As always the total hard drive FORMATTED NTFS is about 960GB. I also run a 30GB hard drive from time to time, but have not needed it much since I have the external 250GB. ALL of my hard drives that I mainly use (except for the 30 GB drive, which is an EIDE Hitachi 2.5") are SEAGATE hard drives. I ran Sea Tools from the Seagate homepage and I have no Hardware hard drive errors according to the bootable CD of Sea Tools. My computer is under warranty and my memory was just replaced by an authorized dealer. I do not like the fact that they gave me miss-matched memory (the place told me that both memory modules were "Kingston" where if you look at the CPU-Z specs one is clearly marked "Hyundai Electronics", go figure. ;) I am waiting for a pair of 2GB DDR2-6400 Dual Layer Kingston mem-modules in the mail and I will be replacing the Single Layer mem-modules for them when they arrive.

There is a twist, however. Since my notebook is able to run a pair of hard drives from within, I am running three encrypted vaults under Windows 7. Three drives, the 30GB Hitachi, 250GB and 500GB Seagate drives all are encrypted with True Crypt v7.0 (earlier versions will NOT work with 7 x64). I make sure I dismount the hard drives before I have to restart the system and I make sure I have no programs running that are accessing the encrypted drives all the time. These drives are recognized as drives "Y" and "Z", physically, and drives "D" and "F" when I mount and access them through True Crypt. There is nothing wrong with the encrypted vaults that I could tell, anyway.

I had my memory replaced because I was getting BSODs with the heading "Bad Pool Errors" with a Stop of x19 (if I remember right) from before, FYI... Hopefully,one BSOD error was not "replaced" by another... :D

I am using this computer fine, other wise....

I am at a loss to figure out why this is happening ... not all the time, mind you, but sporadically...

Any :help:you can give me would be appreciated... Thanks in advance...
