Is my RAM / PSU bad?

Recommended Posts

Hey Corsair forums,

 

I recently purchased a few products from Corsair, I've always been happy with them, so why not. I purchased an 850TX PSU and 2x2GB of Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066. I entered my system specs when I registered so I believe the rest of the components I have will be in my signature.

 

So here's the deal. I've replaced almost everything in my system (excluding hard drive and optical drives), case, cables, everything but those two items. Yet I am still getting random restarts while playing games. I have tried running memtest, it passed. Tried underclocking my GPU, and buying a new one. Still crashes.

 

It normally will just reboot, no error message, nothing in Event Viewer, but it will whine about how I shut it down improperly. Although recently after installing Vista x64, I don't seem to get just a random reboot anymore, I get a BSOD for "IRQL_GREATER_OR_LESS_THAN", if I remember right. My BIOS has been reset, and all setting are AUTO aside from the ram basic timings, voltage, and frequency (all manufacturer default).

 

Last night I switched my RAM dimms around, and put them in different slots. I didn't get a BSOD, but computer just randomly shut down and restarted like it did before I installed Vista, also I played for a lot longer before it kicked the bucket.

 

I am going to try one DIMM at a time now, I just wanted to post here. Maybe someone will recognize this problem and guide me to a solution, I'm at a complete loss, I've replaced almost all of my components.

 

Please help. :(:

 

Also my computer will run all night/day no problem if I'm just browsing the internet or at the desktop, it seems to only crash when gaming.

I just had a BSOD SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION.

 

Here's a Whocrashed report, extremely useless.
