Been using the PC all day and not a single BSOD.

I'll be gaming on it tomorrow, if it doesn't crash I guess it's fixed?

I'll let you guys know!
Good news, let us know how it's running.

Argh, it was running fine so I decided to put the lid back on and move it back to my desk in the other room.

Got a BSOD as soon as it logged into Windows 7...but this time it showed nothing but the error code:



I'm on the pc right now and no errors so far.

I'm running memtest86+ and errors popped up within 10 minutes.

Restarted and tried running memtest86+ again, no errors, so far it's been 2 hours.

It looks like the memory errors are random...which confuse me.

I'll be buying new memory and a motherboard tonight, just to see what exactly the problem is...

Should I install the new memory first and see if it works or try installing the motherboard and memory at the same time?

UPDATE:

I bought some new memory, plugged it in and tried out a few games, it crashed a few times so I decided to install a new motherboard.

It's been running for a few hours now no problems.

I'll post tomorrow night to let you guys know if it crashed at all.

What memory and what motherboard did you buy?
Give model numbers and any other info you have.

Memtest86+ and any other memory test can pass one time and have errors the next, this is very common for RAM.
When you get any errors it means there is a problem with either settings, the RAM or motherboard. If it passes the next time and you haven't changed anything you will still have issues 95% of the time.

Did you try the voltage settings that were recommended on the previous motherboard and RAM?


Quote:
STOP 0x000000F7: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER
Usual causes: Device driver, Malware

Cause
A driver overran a stack-based buffer (or local variable) in a way that would have overwritten the function's return address and jumped back to an arbitrary address when the function returned.

This is the classic "buffer overrun" hacking attack. The system has been brought down to prevent a malicious user from gaining complete control of it.
What anti-virus are you using?
Run a full system scan with your current A-V program.

Download and run Malwarebytes, be sure to update it before running.

Let us know the results of the virus scans.

The motherboard is : Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

The memory is Patriot..something cheap.

I tried the voltages you posted earlier and they didn't work.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials and yes I have ran a full system scan, not quick scan.

Good to know your system is clean, no malware.

Have you had a crash since you changed the motherboard?
