Windows 7: Multiple BSODs, primarily concerning ntoskrnl.exe

So I wanted to go ahead and post an update. I have been running a memtest overnight, I woke up early and it is only on pass 7, but I want to report that it hasn't thrown an error yet.

Also note that this is the same DIMM slot as the other DIMM that did throw errors.

I will edit this when it reaches pass 9 or so

I had another thought it may not be the ram on your mother board that its bad it could be your GPU ram that is causing the problem, so please run OCCT and follow this tutorial starting from test 2:

So I ran up to pass 10 on pass 9 there was one error, so I guess it could be either the DIMM or the slot... I will both check my VRAM and switch my DIMM with a friend's to test the slot.

Hopefully it is my actual RAM it has a lifetime warranty lol


EDIT: I cannot test my VRAM because it is not NVIDIA and does not support CUDA

Yes that would be helpful,got to love those life time warranties, and even a single error in the ram can cause all sorts of crazy things to happen.

I always forget that there is one that works with AMD and one that works with Nvidia yes please use that Vram tester.

I ran the VRAM tester for one pass, two of the tests are unsupported (both BGR) it took about one hour resulting in no errors, how many passes should I have to do?

Also should be switching out my DIMM for my friend's soon

I would say 7- 8 passes, but at this point it is looking more like a ram problem than your GPU
