BSOD randomly

Hi guys, I have been getting random BSODs while using the computer. It happens during startup( just before logging in), while using google Chrome , while gaming (Dota 2). Im not sure of what other info to provide besides the one that the pinned thread told me to. Thank you for your help!!

CostCoin, Welcome to SF .
Unfortunately files are missing, so I'm not getting the full picture.
Please run the SFDT again and let it run its course it can take 15min at times to collect all the data necessary.
There should be eight files generated not including the dumps.

As things stand it appears there is an issue with the RAM, please test it.
Testing the RAM:

  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

Yes mate I would go with YoYo and as an added try and to eliminate other stuff try reseating the RAM and GPU plus clean the slots (very gently).

It wouldn't hurt to redo the driver for that card either or these

Free Malware Removal Tools scroll down to the TDSS Killer and run it at least these scans should eliminate some things and it doesn't take long either.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Think I closed SFDT early, hence the missing files. Here's the scan.

Going to do the memtest now.

That means you have memory errors - the RAM chip/s must be replaced with new ones.

Hi, thanks for the update .
As much as most RAM errors are indeed with modules (sticks) themselves, I suggest you test whether
it is indeed the case you're facing and not a faulty slot.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.
Keep us posted .

I think I have to get new RAM sticks. I switched the RAM around into different slots and still get red lines of errors at memTest. So once I replace the RAM, the BSODs should stop?

That would be a significant step towards that .

Like the others said mate the RAM is shot full of holes and while you are atit before you replace the sticks try this - I always do this as the slots canalso be full of crud.

SLOTCLEANING

Now as for the slots to clean them use astrip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free cloth over theend dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin withbefore an injection) is good and GENTLYswipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s.

This will give you the memory compatibility listings

Another good site if you want to check out the best RAM and if you are up for G Skill RAM and Tradesman is a top fellow for advice
