    That dump shows a single bit memory failure.

    Also shows your PC is slightly under clocked. Check BIOS and set all clocking and voltages to default.

    Looks like you have 8GB of ram, 4 x 2GB DIMMs. Please test the ram.

    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


    is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ 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

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

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

    MemTest86+ 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+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    The infamous memtest... XD I will run it overnight and let you know what happens.

    Also, how do I set all clocking and voltages to default?

    I don't know about clocking and voltages, you'll have to look in your BIOS and see what's available.

    Although I see you have a Dell XPS 8300 so I doubt there are any over clocking or voltage manipulation capabilities there. Not sure though so l

    I ran it for 8 passes and got no errors.

    Apologies for bumping in, but I would like to have this done :)

    Unless you see an option to reset all settings to the optimal default settings you need to pull the CMOS battery.

    After seeing the manual of Dell I'm wondering if it is possible to change a setting in the BIOS at all given that I do not find anything about 'optimal default settings'.

    If there is no option for loading the default settings then I assume you cannot edit a setting in the BIOS at which case you wouldn't have to worry about voltages and speed :)

    I never really played around with the BIOS, but could this be it?

    I did not do anything yet, I just closed it after.

    Yes, 'Load Defaults' is the option :)
