BlueScreen madness

Hi guys, I have recently upgraded my rig to X2 B55o unlocked to X4 B50 with MSI C45-770 mainboard + XMS3 1333mhz 2GB RAM running windows 7 ultimate

The weird thing is that when the comp is working everything is fine and runs sweeet, when I shut it down for night and then turn back on after about 30 seconds when I can see desktop, IM started etc. I will get either




then it restarts but I will still get it after the restart,

now when i switch the RAM slots, ram in blue channel to go to black channel (got 2 sticks and 4 slots 2 channels)

It will start and work with no problems

We also started my ram sticks on my mates PC with same mainboard and CPU, and it seemed to work fine

If anyone got any ideas please let me know what you think

Thanks a lot

I do have a pc that will do this once in a while from a cold start, then once restart it will work perfectly for as long as I want.

Turn it off, then on and it'll still work.

I put it down to a power issue. I know the psu I'm using with it is kinda borderline acceptable, but components from cold will draw that much more, especially drives.

I'd be interested in ur power setup, but in ur case, it could be as simple as raising the mch to compensate. Not by much.

I had this problem, it ended up being my memory. I also got the problem when using Windows 7 and overclocking. The problem all seemed to happen when I installed a certain piece of software.

I had the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA thing with the pc I had before this one and it turned out to be my memory.

If you say it works fine after you put the memory in a different slot I think one of the memory slots might be broken.

I'd definitely wager Memory. The amount of BSODs that are memory related is probably 80% or something.
