Windows 10: BSOD just started out of nowhere
BSOD just started out of nowhere
I have been BSODing periodically for the last couple of weeks and I notice it usually happens when I play games. Some of them are IRQL Not less or equal and others are simply System Service Exception. All help is appreciated.
The recent BSOD dumps show there is possible memory corruption which could be due to a bad driver or bad memory.
Please run Memtest86 exactly as described in the tutorial for at least 8 passes (I suggest you run it overnight) to test your memory.
If that test passes you could try running the Driver Verifier for a while but no longer than 48hours. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.
Please report back on your results.
thanks for the reply. I have used memtest86 before and I am familiar with it. However the tutorial does not specify on how to alienate the offending RAM stick. If I remember correctly you have to remove all sticks except one and run the memtest individually. Is this correct? Of course I will not do this until the memtest with all the ram sticks on shows an error.
Look at Results & Extended Testing near the bottom of the tutorial.
