    Weird locking up issue

    Hey guys I posted in here some time ago, but I'm unable to find the thread so apologise for spam. I'm currently at wits end with a friends pc, I was told her pc lock ups and blue screens were looking towards a ram issue, she bought a Corsair 16GB DDR3 Vengeance kit (2 8GB sticks) but when she boots up a game her pc just locks up, no BSOD just a lock up, I thought it might have been overheating but she cleaned it yesterday so can't be that, could it be a bad DIMM slot? or Hard drive related? For what it's worth shes running Windows 10 with all the updates up to date.

    Thanks guys.
