Windows 7: BSOD due to memory error (0x0000001a)

13 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
BSOD due to memory error (0x0000001a)

I recently built a new PC specs here:

Intel core i5 3570k Ivy Bridge at 3.4GHz
Asus P8Z77-V PRO
EVGA GTX 570 1280MB
16GB Corsair vengeance PC3-14900 (1866) (4 x 4gb)
2TB Seagate 6gb/s hard drive
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
(This is all the system specs I felt where needed, if you need any more please do say)

Now when I used memtest to define whether or not I have faulty RAM I ran a test to start with on all four sticks. Now I had a lot of errors so I decided to test them all individually. I tested them all individually but did not find a single error on any of them so I decided to add one more each time and test again each time. Having 2 or 3 sticks showed no errors with memtest but the moment I added the fourth stick and tested the errors started showing up again so I tested the motherboard slot with the just the one stick in it and it didn't show any errors. So essentially when I have 1,2 or 3 sticks of 4gb of memory in the motherboard it does not show any errors and I do not get BSOD's (so far anyway) but the moment I add another stick of memory and scan with memtest for errors I get tonnes and if I boot windows at some point I will receive a BSOD. (Also I can't be putting the RAM in the wrong slots on the MB as it only has four).

Check your memory settings.
- research the timings/settings/voltages at the memory manufacturer's website
- then set the timings/settings/voltages in your BIOS (in other words - DON'T use the Auto setting for memory)

- check to see if there are any BIOS updates that affect memory. If you choose to install these updates - be very, very careful as it's not very forgiving of an mistakes (and it can break your motherboard).

- check the motherboard manufacturer to make sure that you have correctly populated the slots (if all sticks are 100% identical this isn't an issue - but any difference at all can make/break it).
- check the motherboard manufacturer to make sure that your memory is on the Qualified Vendor/Parts list for your mobo.
