BSOD, RAM and Driver Problems of the 0x000000be Variety

Hey everyone,

It's been some time since I posted. Since my last post here I found that the line of motherboards I was using were faulty in their design. Since then I switched brands completely and I had been BSOD free for over a year. Then on Thursday I got a BSOD, followed by two more yesterday. The errors were always "Attempted_to_write_to_readonly_memory."

Since then I checked for spyware and it came back clean. I tested both hard drives with the "chkdsk" tool and they came back error free. I also ran driver verifier but my system crashed before windows could fully boot, so I had to turn it off in Safe Mode. I ran Memtest86+ and after three passes my system came back with an error. I pulled one 2GB stick of RAM, and after 7 passes the no errors showed up. I swapped out the RAM and tried the other stick. 11 Passes later I had 25 errors. So I switched the sticks again and tried driver verifier once more with the RAM that didn't give me any problems. I couldn't get windows to load yet again. So it seems my problem goes deeper than one stick of bad RAM.

I'm not sure what to do now but I'm hoping someone can help me pinpoint the problem. My files from the SF tool are attached. Any help would be very much appreciated!

The SFC test came back error free. I ran a chkdsk of my K drive (where I keep all my files) and that came back error free.

I'm currently waiting on a scan of the C drive but I don't think it'll finish before I have to leave for work. So I'll post the results of that when I get home tonight or tomorrow morning.

I decided wait for the scan to finish and it just did. No bad sectors were found on drive C and the volume is clean.

Perhaps it's possible that I have two bad sticks of RAM and one of them just isn't showing any errors on Memtest86+? I could run Memtest86 again for more than 7 passes. Though I might just buy new RAM anyway-- I got a run of bad luck with this machine from Cyberpower PC and for the past two years I've been replacing the hardware bit by bit. =/

I ran Memtest86+ for 24 passes with my good stick of RAM and not a single error came back. Just to be safe I'm going to purchase new sticks of RAM, especially since my hard drives seem okay.

Thanks for your help, Justin!
