Windows 7: Blue Screen after booting up

Blue Screen after booting up

Hello all!

I've recently built my own computer, but I've come across a problem...
Whenever i boot up my computer I get the blue screen and it would restart. At first it wouldn't really bother me since it would only happen once a day, but then i realized that after the blue screen only half of my overall RAM would be usable.

If there is anymore information you may need from me feel free to ask.

Hopefully someone can help me with this problem.
Thank you!

Hello Tehblue and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

Are you able to get into Safe Mode without any crashes? Have you tried Memtest86+?


Memtest86+

Memtest86+ is a memory checker, it'll tell you if there's any errors on your sticks.
warning   Warning
Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.
