BSOD Nightmare, New install

Hi ppl,

So my machine previously ran XP, the PSU died so i installed a new one but couldnt get the old raid array to work properly. It was time for an upgrade so I bought a Samsung Spinpoint F3 Ecogreen 2TB Hard drive and windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I had some problems installing whereby the system would restart after the "Loading Files" part of the initial install (from boot). I solved this by removing all but one of my RAM sticks.

Now the OS is installed I keep getting BSOD during heavy load (mostly multiple things at once, for example more than 5 updates in a batch from windows update would result in a crash). I've researched a fair bit on Google but havent been able to find anything that helps. I've read alot suggesting the ASUS mobos with Nvidia chipsets are problematic.

I've attached a zip file with the minidumps from my BSOD and the system details.
This is my hardware setup:
ASUS P5N-E-SLI motherboard with latest BIOS
Intel Quad Core 2.80 (think its a Q6600) with stock cooling
4X 1GB RAM stick
Club 3d Radeon HD2900XT
New 650Watt High Power PSU
Samsung Spinpoint F3 Ecogreen 2GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

Hope somebody can help me!




Your memory management bsod problems are being caused by your Norton Symantec. Typical for sure. Please uninstall it using the special tool found here:

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

MSE is a great replacement because it is low on resources and absolutely never causes bsod on any hardware.

Enjoy man. :)

Agreed.. If the above suggestion doesn't work try running sfc scannow in a admin command prompt. If that doesn't help then try running with just one stick of RAM. If everything is ok with one stick and not the other/s then you probably have some bad RAM..
