  1. Hi everybody. I haven't been around here lately, but I was hoping someone could help me out. I'm living in a college dorm and having some issues that have come up recently. My internet has been pretty flaky lately, shutting down and being unable to connect in a predictable manner. When trying to use http (in Opera, Firefox, and IE, along with AIM and Steam) it has about a 10% chance of connecting. When it fails, the site tries to load for about 30 seconds then says I can't connect. It seems the connection is going in and out pretty sporadically, but I never get a windows popup saying any network cables have been disconnected. I've tried a few things to fix the stability. I have moved the ethernet cable to the second port on the motherboard, which guarantees a no connect. I have also tried connnecting to a different port on my "router." There are two ports available, and my roomate uses the other. I had him test his connection and it seems rock stable, so I've been able to narrow down the root cause of the problem to either my motherboard port or my ethernet cable. I'll try and test another cable when I can get my hands on one. Here's what I have a question about. I looked at where my ethernet cable plugs into the mobo. A green light comes up (it doesn't when plugged into the other port) and then stars to flicker and keeps doing so. What I want to know is what that green light means. Is it an activity light, or a connection light? Should a stable connection mean that the light is constantly on? I can't remember what the light was doing when my internet was stable, so I'd like to know. Any other causes you guys can think of would help in my search. It is still possible that the University cable is going crazy, but it is unlikely. Thanks for any advice you can give.
  2. Like I said in my first post, I've run the mobo's memtest86+ and passed 15 times with no errors. Some things that I have done are the following: First I ran Chkdsk (again) and defragged the hard drive. I uninstalled AIM, as I got BSODs almost directly after signing in, but not always. I put Trillian in to replace it. I disabled the checksum offloading on the Nvidia Networking Controller, and I also disabled the Indexing Service through services.msc. Finally, After even more BSODs showed up, I decided to uninstall Nvidia ForceWare Network Access Manager.
  3. Well the uninstall and reinstall didn't go so well. It's all done now, but I got about 3 more BSOD's before I went into safe mode to install the drivers. One of them wasn't a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, but a MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS. It hasn't showed up again.
  4. Hmm, well I moved my Audigy to the bottommost slot, but did you uninstall and reinstall the drivers when you did so? I didn't and the BSOD's are still here.
  5. I've tried to get rid of these damn BSOD's in my new build, as seen in my sig. I've updated the BIOS of the motherboard to the latest version, but the BSOD's keep coming back. I haven't been able to determine exactly what is causing it, but the screen shows something about HTTP.sys and a "Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" It took awhile to be able to read the minidump, but here is my most recent one. I honestly have no idea what this thing means. I've run memtest with no errors, and Prime95 checks out overnight.

  6. Alright, I've taken the advice and gone with a few new components. The mobo, CPU, and memory have changed. new wishlist
  7. This is gonna be my first self-built PC, used for games like BF2, Civ 4, and hopefully Spore and Crisis, along with some paintshop pro / photoshop when I have the time to learn it. My number 1 concern is compatability and stability. I won't be overclocking like crazy, but the option is open if I feel like it's absolutely necessary. Here's my wishlist from newegg , but I have questions. 1.) Is the infinity good enough for what I want to do? The only applicable advantage I see to the LanParty Ultra-D is the round IDE cables and extra PCI-Express x16 slot. Maybe I'll go for a PhysX card in a year or two if I go with that. 2.) Is the infinity less picky about memory? Instead of the G.Skill I was thinking about Corsair XMS or OCZ Platinum . 2 x 1GB is required, and I haven't been able to find TCCD or TCC5 DDR400 kits like that. 3.) I included the Scythe Ninja and X2 coolers because I want to keep the CPU as cool as possible and I really don't want a vacuum cooling the X1800XT. Are these good things to keep, or could I get rid of the Ninja? I'd like to not exceed $1400, because I'll be adding a soundcard too. The problems with X-fi are scaring me into a Audigy 4 from CompUSA for $80.
