I would check to see if you need a BIOS rev upgrade. Check to see if your board has a limitation on the number of sticks vs bus speed. My Tyan boards had an issue with more than 6 sides of RAM, 4 double sticks would require DDR333 instead of DDR400. I would also make sure that RAM is the proper spec to run 8GB. Some boards require a different spec of RAM to go above a certain amount. Some require only single sided RAM.
Q9550 is 1333 FSB like my E5430 Xeons. I use DDR667 RAM for my Xeons. Most computers with that CPU use DDR800.
0x4e w/ 1st parm 0x99 = PTE or PFN corrupt
0x50 = page fault - mountmgr.sys prob cause..?
P3 (mountmgr) referenced memory add in P1; P2 = 0x0 = read
0xa = MS or kernel-mode driver improperly accessed paged memory
parm 3 = 0x1 = write; p4 accessed memory in P1 = 0x0
This one interesting b/c safemode
I would like to run mini kernel dump files - can't hurt
copy them out of c:\windows\minidump to documents folder or folder of choice
Run msinfo32 and save as NFO file
START | type msinfo32 - save w/ default NFO file extension
Zip up dumps & NFO file and attach to post.
RAM undoubtedly primary suspect - but did you run chkdsk /r ?
RAM increase = page file increase. Is page file system managed?

If his memory controllers are being stressed, he's going to have problems, no matter the RAM!!!
He didn't need to do anything but relieve the stress on his memory controllers by downclocking the memory since all his dimm slots were filled. Corsair themselves will tell him the samething.
Once he took the stress off the memory controllers his issues went away!!!
Sorry but he doesn't need to run checkdisk or any other diagnostic programs.In my last post you will notice that I have taken the suggestions from Jim R and sygnus21 of "downclocking" the RAM to 875 I think it was from the factory default of 1066 and so far the system has been running fine
Most users don't want to hear the obvious. I would say he needs to set the timing to default and live with it.
Wow..I would love to know how to adjust my RAM voltages and such...I guess you could call me a tech-savvy amateur...no education but I am very good with computers by nature.
I am running Toshiba Satellite A215-S6816 with Turion 64X2 AMD dual core and 4gb of RAM and Vista Ultimate x64 and I kept getting BSOD after coming out of sleep mode for ATI driver and audio.
After almost giving up I finally tried taking out the 2GB RAM card I bought (and the store swore to me it was compatible...it's a Kingston) and re-inserting the 1GB that came with the computer and that was it.
But if I can adjust RAM voltage and such, maybe I can make it work...if not how do I know which brands are compatible with each other as far as RAM? Toshiba put two different cards in with the 2GB and 1GB and they work together...help?
I have never adjusted a voltage for RAM. Its a overclocking trick for CPUs. You want to match RAM for best performance and reliability. Mixing RAM is not a good idea on most computers. Is your board dual channel? If yes, you want matching sticks to get dual channel to work. My Supermicro board is quad channel, you needed 4 identical sticks per channel. I install 8 x 2 GB identical sticks for best performance.
I agree w/ all. Diag probably useless - but after seeing several BSODs elsewhere w/ 6 & 8GB systems, found 2 that turned page file off - didn't believe necessary.
It would just be interesting to see dumps. Driver listing may provide information helpful in preventing future BSODs not related to subject at hand.
Best wishes to all.
