    Home Built Desktop with various Stop errors!


    Good Afternoon,

    I recently built a computer using parts from Newegg and Best Buy. The computer runs pretty well although I routinely run into the BSOD, atleast 2 or 3 times upon startup, after which the BSOD rarely ever happens. I've had numerous different kinds of stop codes ranging from SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION, and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.

    Seeing as this is my first time building a PC and EVERY component is new, I am not sure where to start.

    The computer was built on 07MAR13. Attached is my SF diag! Thank you so much for the help.

    The symptom you've described and the dump files indicated various problems with various drivers lead me to believe you might have a bad stick of memory. Download Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and burn it to a CD/USB then run the memory diagnostic test but before you run the test, open the case and make sure that all memory modules are seated firmly. Run the test for at least 3,4 passes.
