pelone Posted December 17, 2010 Share Posted December 17, 2010 I have been having intermittant BSOD problems since I purchased my new system in March 2010. I had both my ASUS motherboard and my OCZ memory returned for repair once already, which resolved the problems I was having with the Wake from Standby crashing and running the memory at rates speed, however I continued to regularly have random BSOD's. I have been very diligent in keeping every driver up to date, including the BIOS, in the hopes that the BSOD's would be fixed. A couple days ago I was just watching a video on Vimeo and suddenly my system crashed with no BSOD or other warning. The screen just went blank and the computer fans stayed running. When forced the power down and rebooted I got a BSOD after the BIOS post just as the Windows 7 startup screen showed up and the system immediately rebooted again. I reset my BIOS to defaults and rebooted only to get the same BSOD and reboot problem. The F8 startup menu from the first splash screen has only two options: Repair Wizard (recommended) and Start Windows Normally and neither works... I only get the BSOD. The F8 startup menu from the second splash screen, which gives me the Safe Start options all lead to a BSOD. The start regular option doesn't work when I try it and I get the BSOD with automatic reboot. When I try repair wizard available from the F8 menu at start up, every time it gives me a BSOD with a STOP: 0x0000001E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF8000BCF6CA1, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF). I tried re-flashing the bios from my USB drive with the most recent version (v2102). I also pulled the battery and let the CMOS reset with no success to starting the computer. I tried booting from my Windows 7 DVD and it got the BSOD too. I pulled my Radeon x5770 card to ensure that isn't the problem and installed my old x1650Pro card and the BIOS identified the card in the post but it still won't boot. I continue to get the same BSOD problems, exactly as before. I also tried rebooting the computer with each individual RAM stick to see if that would change anything but it has the same issues regardless of which RAM module is installed, and I get the same results with a single ram module in ram slot 3 or slot 1. I also recently ran the memtest86 and the ram modules passed the tests at rated speeds. I am running out of ideas as I can't get the computer to boot and into the OS to even try to install new drivers or check other things. I just received a response from ASUS tech support stating that this may be a PSU problem so I am appealing for help here. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
