BSoD 0x7E Windows Vista Ultimate x64


I'm recieving a BSoD on every 2nd or 3rd boot after I installed Windows
Vista Ultima x64.
Here are the specs of the system.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.6GHz
Motherboard: Asus Striker Extreme
Chipset: Nvidia SLi 680 SPP
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX (x2 SLI)
RAM: A-Data 4x 2GB PC2-6400 400 MHz

I've tried booting without SLi.
I've tried to rule out faulty memories and faulty memory slots on the
motherboard and from that I noticed that whenever I boot with only 1 ram
memory from the first slot the boot works every time without a BSoD
appearing.

However if I were to plug in a 2nd memory the BSoD appears and same
with the 3rd and 4th.
This happens no matter what slots I put them in.

I've tried flashing the bios with no success.
I've tried newer drivers for the chipset.
The diagnostic tests I've run on the memories has all passed.

I also considered the video card drivers might be the cause of the
issue but seeing how everything works as long as I only one memory stick
at a time I doubt that's the cause for it.

I read around on the web and found that in general this BSoD could
point towards a faulty harddrive but I have a hard time believing that
the harddrive could be causing this issue due to the memory part.

Any ideas?
All I can think about at this moment is that the motherboard can't
handle the pressure from working 8 GB of ram and SLi.
But then again... It should be able to handle 4GB but it doesn't.

Could it be that the hardware isn't compatible with a 64 bit version of
Vista Ultimate? I've never heard of hardware working with a 32 bit
version but not a 64 bit version tho.

Re: BSoD 0x7E Windows Vista Ultimate x64

Did you apply the kb929777 patch with just one stick of ram installed or
install the latest service pack to overcome the problem?

Knowing the detailed message of the BSOD would help. Is the
BSOD type the same in each case ?

Have you followed a tweaking guide for your motherboard ?

The Asus forum has a sticky posting at the top, "CPU Init", with
some suggested tweaks. Sometimes the RAM needs a little extra
voltage, to be stable. Undoubtedly, your motherboard has
lots of settings to adjust.
