    Been getting BSOD's past couple of weeks


    I have been getting BSOD's on my computer for the past couple of weeks. They've been saying different things but it's been:


    Stuff I've done:

    I've ran sfc /scannow a bunch of times
    Check for driver updates
    Downclocked my RAM from the rated 2400 to 1866 which is what the 8350 is rated for.
    Ran the Google RAM stress tester from a Linux mint live USB. Had that run for 6 hours, no errors.

    Here is a link to my report files: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online. (will expire on the 4th)

    My Windows Version Number is 10.0.18363 Build 18363.

    Thank you for the help.

    However, memory dumps point to corrupted RAM. Do you use any XMP profiles? Have you changed the RAM itself to another one?

    Thank you for taking a look. Unfortunately I don't have any spare DDR3 RAM to test. I was worried about that. From the standpoint of the age of the system.

    No XMP profile, just manually setting the speed and having the timings and voltage on auto.

    Is there a memory stresser that is recommended over Google's?

    Thanks again.

    Memtest86 is most commonly used, I would recommend HCI memtest and TestMem5 0.12

    Up through DDR3, follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums
    DDR4, follow this tutorial: MemTest86 v8.1 Free Memory Testing Tool Review

    Both of these are diagnostic tools designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. They will verify that:
    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    They run from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    warning   Warning
    MemTest86+ and Memtest86 need to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM. The new version of Memtest86 only allows 4 passes for the free version so run it twice, back to back.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ or Memtest86 by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 (or 4+4) passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    Note   Note
    Both of these diagnostics has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ or 4+4 passes of Memtest86 is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run it overnight, starting just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    Take a picture when done and post in the forum please.
