Unstable Windows 7

Can anyone help me to understand why my computer with Windows 7, has become unstable. Almost evere half hour, windows says that it has recovered from a system fail. Even with a clean installation. I guess that it is a memoryproblem but have no proof. My machine is with build in memory, so there is nothing to do if this is the case. But can onyone look at my minidump file and maybe get at clue to my problem?

Regards
Kristian, DK

First step to try if you suspect memory: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

I, too, recommend the RAM test for your situation.

Also try disconnecting any Western Digital RAID devices you may have, see what happens.

Remove Avast with this tool: http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe

Replace it with MSE: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

If the BSODs persist, enable driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Wait for a few BSODs, then follow these directions: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Avast is a very good program; however, it has been known to cause BSODs on some systems. To eliminate all possible causes, we should remove it.

If we determine Avast is not the cause, you can go ahead and reinstall it when the BSODs are fixed.

Error found

Well as you (maybe) can see in the image, errors was found on memory. I found out that my little barebone pc has RAM block and that the can infact be replaced. But the big question is....is it the RAM blocks or the motherboard. Can you advice me on this ?

Honestly, I can't say. Is this what RAM you have?



If so, you can follow part 3 here: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If you can't test individual sticks, you're best to take it to the shop so they can diagnose/replace it.

Well the one stick makes errors no matter what slots it sits in. The other makes 8 pass without any errors. So I guess the problem is the one defect stick. Since the sticks aren't so expensive anymore, I will order a new one on monday.

Good job troubleshooting, I agree with that conclusion.

Just make sure you buy a stick identical to the one you are replacing, including brand.
