Hi everyone, id like to drop a few coins on the table.

To start you will have to clarify some facts with us please.

To start, you mention the system is "new", how new is new and did you build it yourself or was it prebuilt in a store or factory?
please state your hardware details (model numbers, type and bios version if possible) and operating system version and if it is x86(32bit) or x64(64bit).

It sounds like you built the system yourself maybe with the help of a friend "its all new".

If it was built by yourself or a friend then you may need to aquire the the exact operating timmings for the ram and correct voltages and set them in the bios, not to auto but to what the ram provider states to be the specific settings.

Have you ever had the system running smoothly since you have had it???

i will not provide anymore info till i am sure you will not viod any warrenties with any help i provide you with so please clarify the questions i haver for you,
thanks

Recent Hardware Changes. Corrupt drivers for any recently installed hardware can crash the system. To get rid of the corrupted drivers, do the following:

a. Uninstall all recently added hardware.
b. Try to restore the system to a previous restore point
c. Reboot the system and return to a previous stable configuration if possible
d. Remove all external peripherals (printer, cameras, scanners, etc) and connections until the computer returns to normal. 5. Bad video/graphics card. At this point, if your computer is still under warranty, its time to call for help. If not, you can get a computer geek to come to your house (it is cheaper to take your computer to their store) or try to fix the problem yourself.

a. Is AGP/PCI video card compatible with your operating system? If you are experienced with opening up the chassis and resetting cards, reseat the video card, and try again.
b. Check the pins on the cable connectors and see that they are not bent or broken.
c. Never attempt to open the monitor. Turn on the monitor and try to reboot the computer again. If this doesn’t work, go to Step 6.

6. BIOS – the Binary Operating System may be corrupted – Use of Safe Mode to boot system.

a. Try starting the computer in the safe mode. Restart the computer and see the point to which it boots up before you get the blank screen.
b. Press F8 as the computer starts to boot. (For HP and Compaq computers with VISTA, use F10, For HP Pavilions with XP or earlier version of OS, use F1). Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode and press Enter. Remember that NUM LOCK should be OFF for the arrow keys to function.
c. If Windows launches before you can choose the safe mode, restart computer and go to step a.
d. You can choose “Safe mode with command prompt” option if you know how to use MS-DOS
e. You can choose “Last known good configuration” to go back to the last known safe shutdown state.
f. If you have added any drivers or corrupted any files the last time you used the computer, the safe mode will help you get back to the state before the changes, when the computer was running smoothly.

7. BIOS – the booting software may be corrupted – Use of Recovery Console to boot system

a. If the recovery console is already installed on the system, one of the options you see while the system is initially booting up will be “Microsoft Windows Recovery Console”. If it’s not already on the system, it can also be accessed through the network during “command prompt with network” option in safe mode.
b. Recovery console can also be installed at the time of need from the CD-ROM. Go to the following link for additional info : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301645
c. Recovery console helps to Enable or disable services. If Windows informs us during boot up that a file is corrupted or missing, then we can use the Recovery console to copy files from a CD to the computer to repair the corrupted or missing information.
d. You can also recover the system by reconfiguring a service that may be preventing your computer from starting correctly. (FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, etc)
e. For a list of Recovery Console commands, search : http://www.microsoft.com/

Dirty connections on the memory can cause these problems.
Turn off the computer.
Remove the power cable from the power supply or unplug from wall.
Remove the memory sticks.
Carefully clean each contact with a clean pencil eraser.
Carefully clean the contacts with alcohol.
Replace all the memory sticks.
Turn on the computer, and check.
There are small free memory testing programs which can be loaded fat the bios screen from a floppy or cdrom. Search for free memory test program. It does not need to boot, because it can test the memory before booting. It will take time, and worth every minute of time to test your memory. It will tell which stick is at fault, if there are faults. You could also test each stick by itself, by leaving out the other, and only have one in the first slot.

Hope this will help. One such program is called memtest86.. http://www.memtest86.com/. One boots to Linux, and will test your memory without booting Windows. Nice thing.. FREE. Others are on this page as well.

Try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs
Just run fewer programs or buy additional RAM click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all imformation about your computer including installed ram

or processor upgrades. Your computer is running past its specified limits. But remember that in this case the blue screen of death should happen extremely infrequently. If you see the physical memory dump blue screen much more often then the issue is clearly
click start right click on my computer,properties advanced scroll down to system and recovery open settings write and debugging information the drop down button select none
ideally, it should already be the default debugger for your system.
The Dr. Watson debugger program logs all information related to failed processes to the Drwtsn32.log file. In addition to this, the debugger program can be configured to create memory dump files related to the failed processes. You can refer these dump files to analyze the reason behind a process failure.
Perform the following steps to configure Dr. Watson as the default debugger program to record user-mode program errors:

  1. Open Start menu, select Run, type Drwtsn32.exe -I and then press Enter. This command sets Dr. Watson as the default debugger.
  2. Next, run the Drwtsn32.exe command.
  3. In the Dr. Watson for Windows dialog box, select the following check boxes:
    • Append to Existing Log File
    • Visual Notification
    • Create Crash Dump File
  4. Now, when your computer restarts after the STOP 0xC000021A error is generated, run the Dr. Watson command.
  5. Here, view the paths to the Dr. Watson and User.dmp logs.
  6. Open Windows Explorer, navigate to the log files and then open them.
  7. Here, check the cause behind the STOP 0xC000021A error.
also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is 100%totally free to use

LanParty Crashes All the time


The capacitors on the motherboard have aged and they aren't capable no more of filtering the current to the processor. Either you replace them, good soldering skills are needed for that, or just replace it entirely.

It is possible that you are having a harddrive problem. It my be that you dumped a sector on the harddrive that had part of Windows on it.

So at this point we need to do some testing. First thing I need to some info off the Blue Screen. See the picture below I circled the info I need.

Also I would like you to run a diag on your computer. To do this fit F12 at boot (The same way to would do F8). Then you should get an option to run the system diags. Let me know if you get any errors when you reply back with the blue screen info.

Stop error or blue screen


The registry can contain bad information which sends Windows off doinguseless tasks or running unneeded routines. Sometimes errors occur includingthe blue screen of death. Other times the system slows down.

Elitegroup 761GX-M754 Motherboard problem


After the POST (Power On Self Test), and before it begins loading Windows, push the F8 key, to get a screen of boot options Select the Option "Halt on Error", and then proceed. If there is a Windows crash, it will end with a blue screen, and a bunch of error codes. Reply back if this works, because I need to know the errror code to see why it is crashing.

Also, has the system booted before with this motherboard? Did you recently install it, replacing an existing motherboard? If so, that would explain a lot, because some motherboards have a different chipset and IDE controller, which will cause the IDE drives to not be readable.

Still, a bit more info from you would help narrow the problem down.

Cheers
