Windows 7: BSOD-RAM Issues?

Hi Chromium,

Replacing the RAM might solve one problem but it's likely that the file corruption will crop up again in the future if we don't fix it now, especially seeing as the file is a boot critical component.

I'm currently downloading Windows 7 x86 SP1 because I don't have the file on my system (I'm running x64 Windows) and we will get a fix to you as soon as possible. In the mean time, can you tell me whether you have modified bootres.dll intentionally? It can be modified to change the boot animation and I'm wondering whether the file is actually corrupt or not, because I'm surprised your computer boots if bootres.dll is corrupt!

Actually...now that i think about it, im pretty sure that i changed the boot animation after doing a fresh install a while ago. I remember using an app to do it, i didnt do it manually. But its been working fine for quite some time.

Thanks again for your help.

So there's no other software issues?
What could've been the problem before? Isn't it weird that memtest was reporting errors and after switching/reseating the ram it wasnt?

I can't comment on any of your third party software, but we've repaired all of the Windows files so there's no issues on that side of things.

If RAM isn't seated properly it can cause all sorts of problems, as you found out

FYI

I think this is reffered to as "Creeping Chips" or "Chip Creep" - which is chips that, over time, work their way out of the socket/slot. Chip creep occurs due to thermal expansion, the contracting and expanding during system heat up and cool down. To fix chip creep, users of older systems would often have to remove the case cover and push the loose chip back into the sockets/slots.
