BSOD's 4,5 or 6 Times A Day

Hi, I have been getting BSOD's over the last 4-6 weeks but not too frequently. Over the last week or so they are now hitting me 4, 5 or 6 times each day. I’ve researched both here and the web in general but nothing I have found has helped resolve this. The BSOD's indicate the following reasons - IRQLNOTLESSOREQUAL - PAGEFAULTINNONPAGEDAREA - PFNLISTCORRUPT - MEMORYMANAGEMENT. I have recently, maybe the last 3 months or so, added 4GB Crucial Memory (2 x 2GB modules), a SanDisk 128GB SSD from which I now boot and an ASUS LCD Monitor. I have been told that the problem was faulty memory module/s so I called Crucial who have, kindly, taken them back and will send 2 new ones. But guess what, the BSOD's continue. Please help me as I cannot figure this mess out. I have been copying the Windows Has Recovered From A Serious Error messages but they don’t mean a thing to me. Thanks in advance for any help. Regards. Paul

Should be enough as a temporary measure at least to see if you can get an OS installed.

Sorry folks but the PSU I had in the old system had 20 pin P1 socket while my HP has a 24 pin P1 socket.

woodchip I tried several times to install the Recovery Disks. I got half way through the 1st disk and then a BSOD with stop messages. Ive noted them below. I stopped after the 3rd BSOD.

I know this is probably stupid but at no time was there a power interruption that I could see. The system would be copying the files and then without any warning BSOD.

STOP - 0x0000001E (0xC0000005, 0x6A53C575, 0x00000000, 0x6A53C575)

STOP - 0x0000001E (0xC0000005, 0xF73D7AD1, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) acpi.sys - Address F73D7AD1 base at F73C7000, Date Stamp 3b7d8550

Looks like your mobo has problems I am afraid to say.

Thanks Chronos the 2nd I know this is probably a "how long is a piece of string" question, but is there any way to test for sure? 2nd question, Ive had a quick look on the web and I expect to pay approx £50-£70 for a replacement MoBo. Is this worth doing do you think?

Just a very quick and probably final thought from me, if I had dislodged the CPU and replaced it (I undid the clip when I was installing the SSD as the power cable was wrapped around it) and I put it back as it was, could this have caused the problems. That was approx October time. The problems didnt start then more like early to mid December. All I did was undo the clip and then re-clip it again.

Rather than trawl through 6 pages of this thread can you tell me what motherboard you have.

Not sure what you mean by clip that you undid to remove a tangled wire, so looking at your mobo may give me an idea. But I doubt that is the cause but not certain.

It was a retaining clip for the processor (I think its the processor - the square thing on the MoBo) and there was a wire from one of the drives which was trapped underneath the clip (it was a tight fit so I was trying to loosen it). I undid the retaining clip and then thought better of it and redid it again.

The clip you loosened is OK that will not have caused any problems.

And motherboard is?

Its an MCP61PM-HM (Nettle2) made by ECS - according to the spec on the HP web site. Im afraid I dont know anything worth a fig regarding MoBos. Does that help?

Yes this is it. Mobo. This is an AM2 socket motherboard.Socket being the CPU.

So it is really up to you whether you want to replace the mobo or not?

This will give you some idea of prices for an AM2 mobo.Ebay.

Is this your main PC, it would be a good way to learn about building PC's,get a cheap board and use what you have in the current problem PC to rebuild.
