    Could you be more specific about the content of the BSoD screen? What exactly it says....

    What windows do you use?

    What did you do before the problem start?

    Well, ntoskrnl.exe can get corrupted.

    I believe that the event 1001 is just Windows producing a dump?

    Check out Google for intructions on how to reload ntoskrnl.exe

    memtest

    after running memtest for about 30 minutes or so, It shows all the addresses in the bottom in highlighted red, and reads 450 errors, could i assume bad ram, i have 2 diffrent memory sticks, all pc3200 400 mhz, would memtest report bad ram if it's just not compatible with my board?

    Hi, I wouldn't expect memtest to do that. If your memory was incompatible it would be more likely not to see it at all.

    Try running the test again with each stick on its own?

    How many BIOS beeps do you get on bootup?

    As far as I know, memtest can show errors if the scan is repeated over and over without this implying that are actually errors in the stick.

    Memtest is separated in four stages or something like it that are repeated in an endless loop, so, if the first test using all stages don't show errors is more likely that no failure in ram is present.

    There is an error regarding to ntoskrnl.exe that says:

    "Windows NT could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    Winnt_root\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe"

    Source

    But that ain't a BSoD error, just a black page without any dump, that's why I asked for more details

    Let's see something....


    The maxtor problem indeed sound a BIOS problem (assuming the disk was already tested in other system and was recognized correctly) maybe if you let the details of the mother board (model) and details of the bios can easier to look around for an update

    Hi David,

    It sounds to me that you have a fundamentally unstable system there.

    You might be able to find your BIOS update here:

    http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:e...ient=firefox-a

    The "Ntoskrnl.exe" message is probably not very helpful as there are a lot of things that can produce it, along with the dreaded BSOD.

    These are things I suggest that you try:

    1. Update BIOS
    2. Test memory one strip at a time
    3. Update sound and video drivers
    4. Update operating system

    A few questions:

    1. Can you get into Windows ever, or does it always fail with the BSOD?
    2. What happens if you try to boot into safe mode?
    3. Can you boot from the Windows CD?
    4. When does the failure happen..........immediately on boot or after a regular period of time, or at random?
    5. Are you overclocking anything?

    Whilst the ideal solution to at least one issue would be to get the BIOS to recognise the HDD for what it really is, a temporary measure might be to check the MAXSTOR site for an installation program or additional program that supports large HDDs.

    I am guessing that your BIOS only sees 137/149GB?

    Although Chaintech aren't the largest MoBo manufacturer, they do have quite a good reputation, particularly amongst overclockers
