    BSODs under any circumstance and endless game crashes


    Hi, I've been having bsods and game crashes for about a year and a half now, and no other tech support forum has been able to help me.

    The bsods can happen at any time of day no matter what I'm doing, but they happen more frequently while I'm gaming. They just happen out of nowhere, nothing seems to really be a trigger for them.

    I have tried: buying a new motherboard, buying a new power supply, buying a SSD and getting rid of my old HDD, wiping my pc, uninstalling windows, running driver verifier, and running memtest (I ran memtest on both of my sticks of ram, and using only one at a time of each. All passed). None have worked. I am not overclocking anything, and nothing is overheating.

    The DM Log Collector file is attached, thank you and please get back to me soon.

    Hi Yui,

    Welcome to the 10forums

    Based on what you already replaced I see 2 options, the CPU and RAM.
    No memory test is 100% perfect, there may be a chance it missed something.
    To truly rule out the RAM, I recommend to borrow RAM from someone you know (or use spare RAM) that has proper RAM to test with, if the system then still crashes it is most likely the CPU.

    Thanks for getting back so quickly. So, based off of what you've said, it's either the cpu or ram.

    I was planning to upgrade this pc soon, I was gonna buy a Ryzen 5 1600x, which would mean I have to also buy a new motherboard and RAM.

    Do you think that if I purchase these upgrades, the bsods will stop? I'm replacing the cpu and ram, so that covers both of the areas. I just wanted to make sure that either of these two are the definite cause. Due to the memory corruption related bsods I get, would I have to replace my SSD? Would I have to wipe it, or reinstall windows? Also, would this have an impact on my GPU?

    Thanks again.

    Either of them is most likely the cause.
    However, please note, we cannot ever tell you with 100% certainty if something is the cause until tested. This is because BSOD analysis can be tricky from time to time.

    Memory corruption means that somewhere in the data of the memory manager of Windows corruption was detected. This corruption is in the RAM which is wiped after a reboot so the corruption is gone when booting.
    This corruption is mostly only related to volatile memory (RAM), else we'll be able to detect in the logs that there is something wrong with your drive.

    Also, would this have an impact on my GPU?
    It shouldn't.
