    BSOD Critical Error After Installing a New RAM


    Hi everyone,I bought a single stick 16GB RAM last week, and had a BSOD Critical Error for some reason, Here is a list of things i tried so far:- Double checked if the RAM installed properly. - Everything was in place.- Tested the RAM using: Windows Memory Diagnostic - Passed the test(s) with no errors.- Did a clean windows 10 (1703) installation twice, downloaded and installed the latest drivers from the official website(s). - Had a BSOD once per every installation.- Checked the Events Viewer for the error and found this:
    Code:
    Log Name:      SystemSource:        Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-PowerDate:          9/16/2017 11:03:33 PMEvent ID:      41Task Category: (63)Level:         CriticalKeywords:      (70368744177664),(2)User:          SYSTEMComputer:      AWESOME-PCDescription:The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.

    I hope that someone would be able to help me on this one :), cheers!

    See the box at the top of yout thread of the top of the BSOD forum, especially the first sentence:

    Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    Also, if you had no problems before installing the new 16GB RAM then the likely cause is the new RAM, whether it fails testing or not. If you've only had the one failure then run for awhile and see if it reoccurs. If not ignore it. If it does, remove the new RAM, reinstall the old RAM and test that way.

    Hi Ztruker, thanks for your reply, i am aware of that, and already generated those files using the tool mentioned, but i think it contains "too much" information, would it be ok if i edit some of those files before sending it?. I never had any BSOD errors before, the only things i "changed" this time are:

    - Added a single 16GB RAM stick.
    - I also forgot to mention that i added a case fan (from NZXT). - Not sure if has anything to do with it.
    - Enabled XMP from BIOS before a clean windows installation. I heard that some people had similar issues after enabling XMP, could it be the reason why?
    - Installed Windows 10 Creators Update (1703).

    I am at work now, will uploaded the files when i get back home, but you can find my current build specs below:
    - Motherboard: Asus B150M PRO GAMING.
    - Processor: Intel Core i5-6500 - LGA1151.
    - RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 2400 CL16 1.2V (BLS16G4D240FSC).
    - VGA: AMD Sapphire Dual-X R7 265.
    - Disks: SSD: Corsair Force LS 120GB Sata III + HDD: Western Digital (WD) Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 64MB Cache.
    - PSU: SeaSonic S12II Bronze 520W 80 PLUS Certified PSU.

    Thanks! :)

    Here are the files generated by the tool:

    Note: I replaced some text like username, timezone, etc with "*****" for a lil bit of privacy if that's ok :).

    Thanks!

    Hi zbook,

    1- Done, i have added my build specs to the profile :).

    2 - I use CCleaner, and had this memory dumps checked. (Just got it unchecked).

    3- I can't find "system error memory dumps" option, the closest thing i found (and was unchecked), is "
    System created Windows Error Reporting".

    4 - Here is it:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Startup.png 
Views:	21 
Size:	32.1 KB 
ID:	153863

    It was set to none, now i changed it to auto, btw is this statement true?

    Dump files are memory dumps, and everything in memory are saved to a file. This is used for debugging problems when your system crashes. However, passwords and all confidential stuff that are running currently are also saved to this file. You should enable this feature only when you are experiencing problems and need to debug.
    5, 6, 7, 8 - Added Files, WhoCrashed report inside the same archive.

    The dumps and the passwords are not related.
    Microsoft Community

    Once there are mini and memory dumps we can troubleshoot them.

    Please un-check automatic restart for the dumps so that you have time to view the BSOD windows.

    I have added the files, including WhoCrashed report inside the same archive, hopefully you would get to find anything useful in between the lines, thanks for your time.

    Is there any missing reports?, the only thing i ran after installing a couple of apps was CCleaner, maybe it deleted some stuff?, I also have a couple of local group polices enabled, that could stop sending reports to MS. Would be great if you could elaborate on how to generate the missing file(s), thanks a bunch :).
