Windows 7: multiple BSOD over last few days

so, last night, i pulled out one stick of ram and tested it other. it went for 10+ sweeps with no errors whatsoever.

this morning, I pulled the good stick out, put the bad stick in the same slot the good stick was in, ran the test, and instantly pulled up errors.

I guess that is enough evidence that the bad stick is the culprit?

i also got a BSOD last night, reason why I tested right afterwards.

I'm going to try to reproduce the BSOD. I think it has to do with Spotify, as that program has been open both times it has BSOD.

and I plan on buying a new stick of ram to replace the one that seems full of errors.

A new stick is a good idea. Be sure to buy ram that matches your current ram. You should not mix and match ram as it can cause stability issues as well. If need be, purchase a new matched set. Once you have the new RAM installed, let us know if you continue to have problems so that we may assist you further.

I just bought the same exact RAM i bought originally, so it should work alright.

I can't get it to BSOD, even if I use the same programs at the same time.

Thanks for the help!
