I know you've already done this but I want to make sure.

Memtest86 will test your RAM

information   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing



Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.


warning   Warning

Before enabling DV, make sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point Manually before enabling DV.


Tip   Tip
  • If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
  • If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.


Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Will do.
As the PC is at a friend's place, I'm going to collect it and run the tests.
But I'll try to answer asap.

Thx for the help so far.

Just to be sure,
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rzw70ai1hd...2013.43.29.jpg is a screen pic.
Am I doing it right?
As in, does it check the 6GB of RAM in the same time or do I have to test in groups of (ex) 3GB?
And if I did it correct, shall I keep testing it a bit more or skip to the driver testing?

The Memtest has been running for +-12hours now.

That seems fine to me.
Have you enabled driver verifier?

Not yet. I wasn't sure I was doing it right with the memtest.
So I'll report back here in +- 24 hours for the driver verifier.
unless it should've been activated for the memtest? :/

Driver Verifier is part of Windows, no Windows drivers are loaded in memtest86 so driver verifier will make no difference.

I have been running the system with the verifier on for over 24hours now. (doing nothing on the pc)
And it didn't crash again.
What's the next step? :/

Maybe I could add on this subject that sometimes the PC just freezes with a black screen on.
Then I can't do anything but powering it off.

I changed the location of the pc, it uses an HDMI port and USB keyboard
While in the original setup it uses DVI and a few more usb devices.
In case this could be related to the problem (=
