    Random BSODs. Not often, usually when away


    This seems to have started within the last month or so.

    I've observed the crash once recently while gaming. The event viewer seemed to show something with the kernel. Usually though, I come back to a PC that has crashed at some point.

    Would truly appreciate being pointed in the right direction to solve.

    Thanks!

    There was only one dump in the upload, but it's pretty conclusive...
    Code:
    FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE (12b)
    This bugcheck indicates that a single bit error was found in this page.  This is a hardware memory error.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: ffffffffc00002c4, virtual address mapping the corrupted page
    Arg2: 0000000000000589, physical page number
    Arg3: 0000026523034bb0, zero
    Arg4: ffffa701caa85000, zero
    It looks from this dump that you have a RAM issue.

    You can either remove one RAM stick for a few days and then swap with the other. If it BSODs on one but not the other then you have your culprit.

    Alternatively, you could download Memtest86 and run that to test your RAM. Memtest86 is here and instruction on using it to make a bootable USB drive are here. It no errors are found after Memtest has completed all four iterations of the 13 tests then restart it and do another four iterations. Note that it will take many hours to do four iterations on your 32GB of RAM.

    Thanks! I'll start there.

    Is it possible one of the sticks is loose or not seated completely? Or is this more typical of a failing/faulty stick of RAM?

    It's always worth removing and re-seating RAM, it is possible one stick is not properly seated.
