    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.

    Hello kered1010 :)

    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.

    HI Phil,

    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.
