    I recently got some new components for a server at home:



    ASRock A780GXE/128M

    Phenom 9750

    G.Skill 2x2GB DDR21066

    Using onboard graphics



    I'm using Vista Ultimate 64bit with SP1.



    At random (and relatively frequent) intervals the machine bluescreens I get the infamous 'page fault in a non page area' message.



    I've used WinDbg to analyze a couple of the minidumps and I'm not quite sure what to think, I want to think I have defective memory and have it be that simple. I thought you guys may be able to shed a little more light on what is happening.



    I've attached the dumps.



    Thanks!

    Well apparently it can be difficult to get memory rated at DDR2 1066 to actually run at that speed, depending on the motherboard and RAM.



    If I run the memory at specified timings but at DDR2 800 it passes memtest86+ with no problems. When I set the speed to 1066 it fails test 5 continuously.



    So it appears I need to tweak the voltage and timings to get it to run at 1066 correctly.
