Asking this on behalf of my friend.
He's had a custom build PC for around about 2 months, and this machine's cursed. It never stops BSODing.
First of all, his PC never booted, but we solved that with new RAM (Dominator's weren't working, so we got G.Skill instead.)
But now, he gets random BSODs with stuff like MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and some other SYSTEM_PREFERENCE or something like that. I surfed a few forums and they said to increase RAM voltage, but he's done that and it still hasnt quite worked. I went down to see for myself, and when he boots, during the "Starting Windows" screen there appears to be red lines or red text which flash briefly before disappearing again. Then, after a varied time period, he gets a random BSOD.
These are his current specs:
i7 2600K Stock Speed
2 x HyperX 120GB (not in RAID)
Samsung DVD Writer
Thermaltake Evo Blue 750W
G. Skill Ripjaws X 16GB 4 x 4 1333Mhz RAM
Gigabyte 6970 Oced Edition
Any help will be appreciated.
I don't think I can get the minidump because I dont live with him...
