    Seemingly Random BSOD - Slowness After Most Recent

    Ooookay. Seems everything is fine now. Installed an entirely new brand of ram - 16 GB again - and everything has been running smooth as a dream. Hard to believe every stick of RAM I bought out of 4 was bad... Ah well. Thanks both of you for your help, I would have never guessed it was the RAM to...

    Welp, guess I'm just waiting for my new RAM to ship then. Thanks for the info - will update when I have all my parts. Crossing my fingers in hopes it's not the mobo.

    Bah... I'm sorry I didn't read the stickies first in my blind fury. I have attached all the requested information in one .zip file. However, I only have 1 stick of RAM installed at this time as it's the only one that seems to be at all stable. I figured that would be fine as long as you just...

    Well then this is very distressing.... Either every single stick of RAM is bad, every single slot on the mobo is bad, or it's a mixture of both and I have no idea how to determine which it is. I guess I'll order replacement RAM from a different manufacturer as a sort of control. I just don't...

    Sorry for the delayed response, I decided I wasn't going to get any actual diagnostics done on the memory unless I let the memtest86 run at least 10 hours for 8+ passes so it's going to probably take the week to test all of it. However, I did do the first official test with all 4 sticks in just...

    I'm sorry, I didn't know "memtest" referred to a very specific program. I'm knew to all of these diagnostics. Didn't mean to burst your bubble. Please don't give up on my case just because I didn't fully understand. :/ I'm no computer genius.

    Thanks for the reply. I personally was feeling sketchy about the memory issue so that helps. I will try testing everything thoroughly on Friday when I have time. I've used the hard drive diagnostic tool from the manufacturer and everything was okay on the... I guess broad spectrum test but I...

    Ok... this morning I simply booted up my computer and it had a blue screen. That has not happened before, it's always been in the middle of a game. Edit - On a side note, I was just browsing through my system information and noticed under Problem Devices that it lists "AODDriver4.1" and says...

    I haven't had a moment to update my BIOS yet since the AI Suite updater clearly isn't going to work. If I try to update via the rom I download from the website it just sits at 0% for literally hours and I've tried after several reboots as well. Either way updating through the AI Suite is not...

    So I've been running memory tests all day with the windows memory diagnostic tool and apparently it is detecting problems on 2 of my 4 sticks of RAM. I'm running more passes on the other 2 to make completely sure they're okay. However the diagnostic tool does not give me a report on startup...

    Seemingly Random BSOD - Slowness After Most Recent

    I'm actually having a really hard time with the BIOS updates. I have the AI Suite II for updating and it says my version number is 1208 which is second to the newest version, yet my dxdiag says otherwise. The BIOS updates are ROM files and I have no idea how to use those other than to go through...

    I just built this computer around the 1st of August this year. It's my second self-built PC and came together without issue. However, I started having blue screens about once a week since maybe the 2nd day after I first ran it. Every single blue screen seems to be linked to the video card...
