    i7 4930k 16 mem samsung pro xfx video (3 identical machines)
    machines year and half old
    win 7 never a problem, never a crash, never an event in event viewer
    win 10 over 7, perfect.
    until look under the sheets with all sorts of recurring errors that this forum has documented multiple times

    last night machine blew up and blue screened.
    i downloaded the dump and everything else with your program.

    very frustrated. please your collective wisdom

    Hi boris,

    The crash is a 0x1A(MEMORY_MANAGEMENT) which is related to the memory of course.
    As you only had once a BSOD it is not something to worry about.
    If you however would like to do something, MemTest86+ is available to test your memory.
    Please keep in mind that with 16GB it could take almost a day before MemTest86+ is finished with the minimum requirements of 8 passes. If however there is at least 1 error, you can of course stop MemTest86+ as it is then necessary to determine what stick/slot is faulty.

    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.

    I have three identical machines that have been plagued--as have many of your viewers--by many recurrent errors lurking underneath the pretty face of windows 10. The event viewer never is clean: i'll spare the details but there are numerous posts here about the same issues experienced by many, many users. Sure if you never look at the event viewer or the reliability monitor you might conclude that windows 10 is a success. I suspect, however, that we have the same misfeasance just experienced at VW: a cover-up of major dimensions where the basic structure is flawed even though the "public" presentation is great.

    To be very clear: the machines plagued by errors, and now bsods, are exactly the same (with each other) and ran windows 7 with hardly an error for years.

    So I can only conclude it is the software because the hardware was rock solid.

    I am going to wait for the November super upgrade to decide whether I go back to win 7 (a shame because i like the added functionality in windows 10) or pay through the nose to buy Imacs where, at least, things always work correctly.

    Thank you.
