Blue screens and corrupted hard drive.

Recommended Posts

This morning i turned on my computer and everything was a ok. Then not shortly after i turned it off and unplugged everything to go to a lan party. when i got to the party and hooked everything up, i started getting blue screens. These blue screens came up after about 5 mins of use. The blue screens dont happen very often when i go in safe mode, but it still crashes. Now the reason im really screwed now is because i thought i could fix the problem by reformatting my hard drive with a fresh copy of vista, but the setup crashed and now i cant boot my os at all!


This situation has become very stressful and i have spent all day only making it worse.


Here are my specs.


Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145015


^ i have that in my computer right now.. and i ordered to more before the crashes showed up so i will soon have 4 gbs.


Mobo: Asus p5ne-sli


Power supply: cooler master 650 watt


Cpu: intel e4400 2.0 ghz.


NOTE: i know this is a memory problem because windows always tells me too run memory tests and always says windows has crashed because of memory errors.


PLEASE! any help will be great fully helpful.


Thank you for your support in the future.

To properly test the memory to see if it is causing these issues, please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard and then load optimized defaults and set the Memory Voltage to 1.9 volts and then set the timings to 4-4-4-12 (CAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS) and then test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! Please allow memtest to run 2-3 passes on each module. If you still get errors, we will be happy to replace them! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
