Windows 7: BSOD regularly but randomly, even when computer was idle.

Sorry, edited my previous post before realizing that you had replied. So another question:

Also, is it safe to rule out the memory sticks or slots being responsible for this? Since BSOD happens much more frequently once I turned on driver verifier. It's more difficult for me to run the memtest (esp. swapping out the physical sticks to test one by one, not so sure I want to risk opening up the computer myself).


I'll provide the system info when I get back to my computer after work tonight. Thanks!

You shouldn't be running both at the same time, they will interfere.

Do memtest (with all sticks the way they are) and if clean then go to verifier.

Hi,
Nothing comes up when I type in sysinfo32 in search. I did export the System Information, as well as exported the output of dxdiag. They are attached.

Cheers,

Hi,
I thought this was a solved issue, but it's came back to haunt me again.

Back in late Jan, I ran the memtest86+ and found one faulty mem stick. I filed for with corsair and sent the mem stick back. While waiting for a new stick, I ran on three 4Gb sticks with no problem. Received the new stick around early February, and had been running my desktop using four 4 Gb sticks without a problem... until now. I am getting BSOD the same way I used to, and the blue screen says it's the Memory Management problem again. I ran memtest86+ again and the new stick is the one throwing the error. If the new stick had been faulty, I don't know why I got 1 month of usage without any problem... is it possible that that particularly slot on the motherboard would corrupt the memory stick??

thanks for any advice you may be able to offer.

Were you careful to Avoid Static Damage to Your PC? Even if you do not feel the static discharge, it can ruin RAM.

I use an antistatic pad and antistatic wrist connection to the pad to avoid ESD ruining components.
