I've had a number of blue screens on a home-grown system that I built.
To date, I've...
1. Verified BIOS and device drivers
2. Ran Microsoft Memory Diagnostics with either 3 or 5 passes with no errors found.
3. Ran MemTest86+ for about 3.5 hours with no errors.
4. Ran Prime95 for about 4 hours.
5. Ran ran the memory.dmp file through WinDbg and a copy of the console output is attached. (I'd never used WinDbg until now so I probably missed capturing all useful information. Let me know if you need me to do more with it cause I'm all about learning.
6. I also followed the instructions found here
and attached the files/folders.
7. Joined SevenForums and posted this

Did I run Prime95 and MemTest86+ long enough for a thorough test? If not, how long should I let them run?
Thanks to all who make this site possible. Very useful information that's straight and to the point. I like it!
It could always be worse - so GIARI!
