Windows 7: BSOD while playing apb, varying errors

So far, it's been running pretty well. It's only crashed once, and that was because I was playing with Skype running. But I've played apb and not bluescreened at all for 4 hours without Skype. In the past it had bluescreened faster when I had it running, so maybe the remaining blue screen problems have to do with it?

Now you may test it ... how it is running on skype for a long time.

Well APB bluescreened without Skype, so I don't think that is the problem. But Minecraft crashed the other night while running Skype, so it's not limited to apb. I think this might be a RAM issue actually. Seeing how it crashes more often with Skype open. I tried running apb with one stick of RAM (4gb) and it couldn't handle it, it ran normally but it froze up after a little bit because the RAM usage was to high. I would test it with just the other stick to see how that ran in comparison, but it's stuck under the after market cpu fan, and I'd have to take apart pretty much the entire computer to get it out seeing how it's a mini-pc. Does this information change anything?

Some inputs from koolkat77 :
Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

possible discovery?

alright so I had ran the memtest with both sticks of ram and it came up clean. I was going to run it on both sticks individually the next two days. But tonight while I was playing APB, the game froze, and so I ctrl + alt + deleted and when it went to the desktop there was a little pop-up that said the graphics drivers had stopped responding, and when I opened up apb again, it bluescreened. I think it might be the graphics drivers, but I've reinstalled them and updated them several times.

Graphics driver has stopped responding and successfully recovered .... this pop-up in system trey is somehow common. Id updating driver cannot get rid of it, it most probably a card that is failing at random, and such a failure is too randon to be detected by furmark. If it continue, the best is to RMA the card.

I've reinstalled and updated and all that stuff, blue screens are still coming. I also got a blue screen while watching a youtube video the other day. There's not by chance another way around getting a new video card is there?

It only grabbed two dumps, the one from the youtube bsod and an apb bsod, hopefully you can decide from that.
