I have just built a new computer. And am getting BSODs. Here's my notes on them: Errors Codes are as follows: (I didn't write the codes down the first 2 times) 3rd BSOD (3/22/11): *** STOP: 0x0000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0x00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF80003888F72) 4th BSOD (3/25/11): *** STOP: 0x0000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0x00000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF80003888F72) *** dxgmms1.sys - address FFFFF880061B2360 base at FFFFF880061A2000, DateStamp 4ce799c1 5th BSOD (4/11/11): SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION *** STOP: 0x0000003B (0X00000000C0000005, 0xFFFFF96000093BFA, 0xFFFFF88008B0C210, 0x0000000000000000) *** win32k.sys - Address FFFFF96000093BFA base at FFFFF96000010000, DateStamp 4d2415ea 6th BSOD (4/13/11): win32k.sys An Attempt was made to write to read-only memory. ***STOP: 0x000000BE (0xFFFFF960002E22D8, 0x80900003ED6AC021, 0xFFFFF88002A64960, 0x000000000000000B) *** win32k.sys - Address FFFFF96000103977 base at FFFFF96000040000, DateStamp 4d2415ea 7th BSOD (4/17/11): IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ***STOP: 0x0000000A (0xFFFFF6F44001A710, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF800038D58E9) -this was the first time it did this (might be cause i enabled pagefile.sys before this crash?): Collecting data for crash dump...

Fire Studio project was on and default audio device. My system hiccups sometimes when it shouldn't with these specs. Such as when typing in a web browser sometimes ill be typing and the cursor will freeze for a second then all that I typed while it was frozen will all pop out at once. or when playing games like TF2 there will be lots of sound loops (repeats a split second sound clip 3 to 5 times then proceeds) and video hiccups. these might be because my internet is bad also? So far i have done the following to try to fix this error: Ran: -Disk Defrag on all drives -Maleware (0 threats) -IoBit secutry 360 (0 threats) -AVG free (1 threat removed) -CCleaner (both registry and disk clean) -Driver Max and updated every Driver -Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool with 0 problems. -Prime95 (359 Torture Tests in 8 hours, 14 minutes with 0 errors and 0 warnings) -Monitored all temps via CPUID's HW monitor. all temps look really nice and low even during stress tests.

Thoughts of possible suspects: -Driver issues? (sound cards?) -Bad Windows install? Maybe bad windows install discs? Discs were bought off eBay and looked questionable. I will get new ones from M$ and reformat soon. -When I first installed windows Pagefile.sys and hibernate.sys were huge (~13gb each) so i disabled hibernate and disabled Pagefile.sys. -I enabled my PageFile.sys after 6th crash to see if that helped but crashed again but i got a crash dump 7th time. -Monitor issues? maybe the cabling on the second monitor is messing with something (DVI to HDMI converter on vid card with a HDMI to DVI cable to monitor). I just didn't have another DVI lying around). 2 different resolutions, sizes and aspect ratios?
