Corsair Vengeance 2000 7.1 causing BSODs


Recommended Posts

On Tuesday I began experiencing a BSOD, so I tested all my RAM sticks. One ended up being bad so I removed it. Tested the remaining sticks again and they were fine. Had the computer running for two hours last night (without my headset dongle plugged in) and it was fine; no blue screens. I came home today thinking I resolved my BSODs by removing my bad ram, only to find 10 minutes after starting my computer, and as soon as I plugged in the dongle (the extended one) I got another BS that I got a few days ago. I rebooted my system (with it still plugged in) and the computer would have a black screen after the windows logo. So I unplugged it and rebooted again; it came up fine. I'm assuming this blue screen has to do with the driver for the headset. That makes sense, because when I first bought the headset I went to the manufacturer website like the instructions said, to grab the driver and download it. After installing the driver and rebooting, my computer constantly blue screened and boot looped. I had to boot to safe mode and remove the driver for the computer to boot again. So I'm here because after hours of google searching I couldn't find a close enough match to my exact problem, especially since at the same time I happened to be having a failing RAM stick.


So a quick point of what I did:


Memtested all sticks, removed the bad stick of ram.

QT Extended test of hardware, everything passed.

Recently removed the Vengeance headset sofware, (after the reboot that worked)

I initially tested the ram because of a lock up during playing Don't Starve, then a day later a BS while playing League of Legends

The dongle isn't the only thing that causes blue screens. The driver itself when installed(from your website), will cause the computer to blue screen on restart, and continually blue screen untill the driver is uninstalled. You have to go into safemode to remove it I might add, you can't even get back into windows normally. I've tested installing that driver on 3 different computers, all different types, and got the same exact result.


As for graphics drivers, yes I have the latest directx and graphic card drivers.
