Windows 10: Lots of random BSoD

    Lots of random BSoD

    Computer was working fine, went out of the country for a month and came back to loads of BSoD issues. I've done everything like updating drivers, rolling back display drivers, using DDU to remove graphics drivers and updated them, and also run MemTest+ for 8 rounds (which took aaaaaages) with no issues.

    I was getting BSoD issues with the computer just sitting there, but now it seems to mostly be when loading and using Adobe Lightroom, although it does still happen randomly too.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

    So much random different BSODs are pointing to some sort of hardware related issue.

    First of all, take care of the RAM. Test your RAM modules for possible errors. Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

    If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.
    Take a camera snap of the memtest86+ window before closing the program. Let us see it.

    Thanks for the reply. I already ran MemTest86+ for 8 passes with no errors, which took around 40 hours, so not really into the idea of running it for 2 days straight again just to take a photo. The RAM's only about a year old, I have 4 x 8GB of this: Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9 Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866 Mhz CL9 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black: Computers Accessories

    Anything else I can / should test next?

    I ran MemTest86+ last night again for 2 passes (can't do any more since I need to work), and there's zero errors again. I took a quick photo this time though. Currently running the computer in safe mode to see what happens...

    Two things I need to say in this regard .....

    First, any run of memtest86+ less than 7-8 passes is completely a waste of time. It is needed minimum 7-8 consecutive passes to have a meaningful result of the test.
    So your test result does not count.

    Second, from your motherboard manufacturer's website: The RAM speed as shown in the memtest86+ screen is not matching to the supported speed. It may be the enough cause of the issue. Get the proper RAM.

    As I stated in my original post I did run it for 8 passes and it was fine. I ran it another 2 times last night to get a photograph. There were no errors. I don't have the 40 ish hours to spare without a computer to run it again.

    Also I don't see what's wrong with my RAM? The motherboard takes 1333 and 1866. My RAM is rated as a 1333 SPD and 1866 tested, and it's currently running at 1866. It's even listed as compatible with the motherboard on the ASUS website. This is what I have: Vengeance® 16GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit (CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9)

    The computer has been running fine for ages using this mobo/RAM combo.

    I am asking for the RAM test over and over, because of the nature of the BSODs. If it is not the RAM, then it may be some other serious piece of hardware. And so a concrete conclusion is needed. I hope you understand my point.
    If I shift from the primary suspect, i.e. the RAM based on your statement, then the risk would be on you.

    If your RAM is 1333 MHz without XMP, then it is all good. But the memtest86+ is showing it as 1066 MHz (and 1866).
    Again I may overlook it based on your statement, be aware of the risk factor.

    In this prevailing situation, the notion will then shift to a corrupted windows installation, and I would suggest you to perform a clean reinstall of windows.

    Do it. See how it goes. Notice it minutely that if the BSODs bounce back, at which stage they starts to occur.
    Let us know the resulting situation.
