Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 50, {fffff8a00376c218, 0, fffff80002e93470, 0}


Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MmCheckCachedPageStates+3f0 )

I don't remember if we have tried this, but BugCheck 50's are almost always RAM-related. Have you tested RAM lately?

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

just threw it in a sec, memtest thousands of errors, ok how do I discipher the information, is it a stick, a slot, a cpu cashe?

one example of line entry: address 002934a81e4 - 10548.5 MB - 20
didn't have a save log function that I saw.
will try to isolate a good stick tonight, run x4 for each stick in slot one and see what happens.
I have 4 x 2 GB sticks.
Sigh....
I had added two sticks a few months ago to go to 16 GB, they are all the same manufacture and stick nomenclature.

Bingo!

You now need to test RAM chip 1 in slot 1 on the motherboard - 8 passes. If it passes, it means that chip and slot are good. Now repeat with the same RAM chip in the remaining slots. If that passes, the motherboard RAM slots are all good.

Now test the remaining RAM chips in slot 1 only, one at a time, until the defective chip is identified.

Uninstalled intel rapid storage.

Still holding, I'm considering that when I reinstalled window with the bad ram things didn't copy and process well so I'm left barely holding together.

Just a thought,

thanks again for trying to sort this out, I appreciate it.

No worries. I'd say you are close to the point where you are better off reinstalling from scratch.
