So what happened my ASROCK HDready MB with AMD 3800 X2 worked fine with Windows XP, but after some time i decided to upgrade to Windows 7 :). After doing the setup (more or less 10 hours of work, vpn – firewall – vmware – bla bla bla … ) windows 7 started to surprise with BSOD.

After contacting the Asrock support i got Bios 2.19 for testing, this even killed my XP, which was still working perfectly in parallel :). After downgrading back to 1.20 i was still facing BSOD (minidump analyse shown above).

So what was may solution:

– installing cpu-z info tool checking core voltage and memory timing

– increasing core voltage to 1.30 (from auto to 1.30v)

– correcting memory timings from (auto to given values from cpu-z info tool)

– DISABLED COOL’n’QUITED ! (positive test proved that this was the main issue!)

up to now i am happy again, no BSOD anymore. 🙂

*CROSSINGFINGERS*

bye.
