    BOSD 7 times today, either while using Chrome or right after boot up

    As the title says, I've gotten the BOSD 7 times today. The BOSD said it was because of various things throughout the day, at first it said it was Memory Management, but after that I just started to get annoyed. Checking back through the event logs, the bugcheck says the errors were: 0x00000050; 0x000000ef ; 0x0000001a; 0x0000000a; 0x00000139; 0x000000c1
    If it isn't obvious, I really don't know how to solve this or if the bugcheck errors help at all. What I do know is that I was just using google chrome when some of the crashes happened. Also during the day, several times I booted up my computer and logged in and then went away for 5 minutes after logging in (without doing anything). When I came back, it was obvious that my computer had restarted.

    I guess I can survive with my computer crashing randomly, but if anyone could help, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Yargblarg,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    Some crashes might be related to each other.
    The 0x1a(memory_management) is either caused by a driver or bad memory.
    Seeing from the other errors that some have also a bad memory as 1 of the usual causes, we need to check the memory.

    Diagnostic Test


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Thank you for helping me with this issue. I ran the tests last night, I only was able to do 7 passes, but on the 2nd pass there was a memory error. I can give you the specific errors if needed, but I read through that thread you linked to and it sounds like since i have 3 sticks of 2gb ram, I'm going to have to run this program again with each individual piece of RAM in each individual DIMM slot for a total of 9 tests... ugh

    It makes sense that its a memory error because sometimes chrome crashes because of some memory error or something. Also, funny enough, since i made my first post, my computer didn't have any BSOD's, but once i booted it up to respond to this thread, it had another BSOD with "Faulty hardware" or something.

    Also, since my computer has 6 DIMM slots, do i have to test the unused slots?

    Also, I just got 3 more BSOD's today after posting this (which is why I'm adding it). The first one happened while I was listening to spotify and playing some Asphalt 8. Sometimes when I restart a race in Asphalt 8, it crashes, but this time my computer got a BSOD that said "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". So, I restarted my computer, logged in, opened chrome and asphalt 8, and I got another BSOD. This time, it said "DRIVER_PAGE_FAULT_IN_FREED_SPECIAL_AREA". So, I rebooted my computer, logged in and let it sit for two minutes to load this time, and then it got the same BSOD as last time. Now its working fine (fingers crossed). I don't know if this information helps at all, but I thought I'd bring it up because its part of the ongoing BSOD issue.

    I would first test the used slots, that is more then enough work.

    If I am correct, those crashes have memory as a cause.

    So I've spent the past week running tests on my computer, and the results are quite surprising. I ran a test for each stick of ram in each of the three DIMM slots that I use on my motherboard, and I only got errors for the second stick of RAM in the second DIMM slot, but not in any other of the tests:
    Attachment 42452
    Also, I just retested the second stick of RAM in the second DIMM slot and it came up with no errors, even after 13 passes. I must admit I am thoroughly confused as to what the issue is. So, what would you recommend that I do?

    Check the BIOS for the RAM frequency and make sure it is supported by the motherboard.

    So here are two pictures, one of the advanced bios settings on my computer and the other being one of my sticks of ram. In case you can't see what they say, the bios says that the RAM is operating at 1066Mhz and a "Profile DDR Voltage" of 1.5V. My RAM on the other hand operates (or can operate up to) 1333 Mhz @ 1.65v. My processor is an i7 950 that can operate RAM up to a frequency of 1066 Mhz and my motherboard operate RAM at both 1333 and 1066 Mhz, among other frequencies.

    I'm wondering if either the change in voltage (1.5v vs 1.65v) or the difference in operating frequency (1066 Mhz vs 1333 Mhz) is causing the problem.

    My motherboard: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0)

    My processor: Intel QPI) Specifications
    My RAM (i couldn't find the manufacturers website): OCZ Gold 6GB Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1333LV6GK -

    Lets first check the frequency, please set it to 1333 MHz

    So I've now set it to 1333 Mhz (which I don't think is supported by my processor) and my computer got another BSOD, but anyway, what should I do now that my RAM is at the higher frequency?

    Set the frequency back to what it was and make sure the contacts of the modules are clean.
