Constant BlueScreen crashes -- driver issue?
I think I may have a driver issue, but I'm at a loss as how to fix it. My
system specs: Vista Home Basic 64-bit, 2 GB RAM, GeForce 8600 GT (driver:
162.22_forceware_winvista_64bit_english_whql), X-Fi XtremeGamer (driver:
SBXF_PCDVT_LB_2_15_0002), Gigabyte 965G-DS3 motherboard.

I've been getting BlueScreen crashes since I bought the machine. They seem
much worse now, hours or minutes apart. The most common seems to be with a
Stop 109 error code. I've also seen C1, A, 3B, 4E, 24, 1A, and probably some
others I can't recall.

I have all the latest drivers I can find and all the Windows Updates that
seem applicable. I've completely uninstalled/re-installed sound and video
drivers several times to no effect. I've removed my sound card from my
machine, and switched back to on-board audio, but still got BlueScreens. I
tried running the Driver Verifier but I don't think I quite understand what
it supposed to do, and it didn't lead me to one particular driver as far as I
could tell.

I've run Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool several times. It did show errors,
but not every time. It seemed if one of my video or sound cards were disabled
(or removed from the machine maybe?) that I didn't get errors. I don't have
any other memory I could use to test it, and I would rather not buy more if I
can avoid it. My machine came with no drivers installed, but fully tested
hardware. So it seems odd to me that the hardware would fail days after being
tested successfully.

Anyone help or suggestions on what I could try next would be greatly
appreciated. Here is the latest BlueScreen error:

Re: Constant BlueScreen crashes -- driver issue?

hey mate i am in the same boat as you. i have vista x 64 home premium,
radeon hd 2900xt, intel e6600 core 2 duo, asus p5b delux, 2x1gb giel
ddr2 ram, running timings of 4,4,4,12.

i was getting bsod errors including, 24,3b,3d,1e and a range of others,
these were happening about every 10min with the latest catalyst drivers
(7.9), i then installed older drivers, 7.8 and i still get bsod errors
but no where near as often. so maybe try older drivers?
