Do the test one stick at a time if you can, I have seen situations where when all the ram is inserted there is no problem shown but individually faults appear.

If your RAM passes memtest with individual sticks inserted please try the following:

Run the following commands from an elevated command prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the search box, right click on the cmd.exe and select "Run as adminstrator"
In the black window that opens, type "SFC.EXE /SCANNOW" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Let the program run and post back what it says when it's done.
and then from the same command prompt

chkdsk /f /r
after running those please enable driver verifier and allow it to crash your computer once it has crashed your computer please post the new files here:

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Tip: If you can not boot normally after enabling driver verifier boot into safe mode by pressing the F8 key before the windows logo appears.

Sorry for the delay getting back to you Dsprague but I wanted to test the memory fully before troubling you my memory is good Since we last spoke I have been using Linux and had no problems. I have now removed Linux and have a fresh install of windows on my machine. I have done all updates but have not installed the 2 hotfixes you mentioned in your previous posts as I was still getting BSoD's after applying those.

Here are the details from the sfc.exe

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc.exe /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.


and the chkdsk /f /r. My files system is NTFS and i did not reschedule chkdsk as I have already done this and it was clean.

doing the driver enabling now....

WEI - Is it worth the bother?
I've just run WEI and had a score of 5.0 - related to Graphics, so I unchecked all the boxes in appearance, (hate the GUI in this mode), and ran the assessment again. Absolutely no change. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon 5450HD 1Gb. I understand that this is a 'cheap' card, but I'm well...
