I am more the software guy, but a friend of mine asked for help on his brand new desktop (gaming) PC. He has the following components:
- Gigbyte Overclocked GeForce GTX470
- AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
- Mainboard M4A89GTD Pro
- 8 Gig RAM.
Now the PC is crashing with a bluescreen, indicating a memory fault (or at least I think so). He has made a photo of the bluescreen: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL After the four hex values in () is no hardware name etc. visible.
The PC is only crashing when I add one of the memory sticks. Not a specific one. I can use each of them. I can even use both slots. Just when I add them all it is crashing.
I have made a memory check with this Windows tool (memory check or so). At one day it showed me a failure, but then never again. I thought it might be related to overheating at this day (somehow the cooler was not installed proberly). After cooling day it was fine.
Somewhere in the internet I have read about virus. I cannot imagine a virus can do that. So, now I would love to hear some more suggestions, I am really frustrated with this PC.
Cheers + Thanks, Christian
