Windows 7: BSOD while gaming and web browsing

BSOD while gaming and web browsing

I was getting BSOD error code 0x0000000A, then I did a reinstall of Windows 7 to see if that would fix the problem. Instead, I was greeted with BSODs but with a different error. Now, I'm getting 0x00000050. Again, while I'm gaming or just web browsing.

I have a dual stick memory kit, which will be referred to as stick A and B. I ran stick A and B in dual-channel mode through MemTest86+ for one pass and it came out fine. I then ran stick A and B individually through MemTest for 1 pass, and that also came out fine. Edit: Do you guys think I need to do more than 1 pass to test my RAM?

I ran FurMark for an hour to see if my graphics card was the problem, but that test turned out fine.
I thought it may have been because of the video card drivers I'm using (AMD 12.11 Beta 11), but I'm also doubtful because nobody else using the same drivers has reported getting blue screens.

Yes, you do need more than one test to pass. Run it, I believe I have seen, 9 times. Also, Roll back to the latest stable version of the driver. Also, there is no dump files. Remember to

Hello DarkFire, Welcome to SF

I would recommend you let memtest run for multiple passes or preferably overnight have heard of others reporting faults not showing until the 8th pass (although that is quite extreme) i would also suggest you switch off any OCing you may be doing and run some other hardware checks
Disk Check
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
first impression is that poss hardware related as you still get bsod on new install, i will have a look at your dumps and post back shortly

Oops yes ^^^^ no dump files

Did a disk check and it came out fine. Will try P95 now, which test should I do? I went ahead and started with Blend since that was the default and I think I may have bad RAM.

Don't bother with the stress tests yet then go for memtest and prove that RAM

Sorry, only saw your message after I came back from my Prime testing. I can report though, that my system passed 2 hours of P95 Blend.

I'm going to go ahead and run MemTest now. Is it okay if I enable XMP on my RAM for MemTest? I noticed that my timings weren't at my RAM's spec when I just let MemTest run (was 11-9-9-24 instead of the rated 9-9-9-24). I enabled XMP for my RAM and restarted MemTest. Just wondering if this is okay to do.

Try it and find out, just be careful as quite often when enabling XMP is auto comes on in one of the boost stages not on normal settings so might be best to run sticks at stock speeds and voltages as stated on the label of the RAM and play with that after you regain a stable system

The general idea of BSOD fault finding (as its not always clear cut what can be causing the problem) is to remove as many variables as possible to get a stable system then to try that stuff out when all is good so if you get a problem you know what to attribute it to so you can correct it

Ya, before I started testing, I disabled XMP and manually set my RAM to 1600 mhz and 9-9-9-24 (as spec'd by Corsair).
I've had MemTest86+ running for 4 hours so far and have done 4 passes. Will keep testing for a few more passes, unless you guys think I can stop.
