Windows 7: BSOD happening more frequently. Pls help.

BSOD happening more frequently. Pls help.

Hi. This problem has been going for about 2 months. I started shutting my pc down and it seemed to help matter, but in the last week it's really picked up. Sometimes my entire system freezes and then automatically reboots. Sometimes while in a game where crops fly around the screen, my screen goes black but has some very pretty colors going horizontally thru it. When that happens I'm forced to pull the plug on the system as it won't respond when I try to reboot via tower buttons. I am wondering if this is a video card issue or a motherboard issue? Earlier when this happened, I plugged my monitor into the motherboard and there wasn't a signal. Thanks.

Well you're getting a lot of RAM errors.

Code:
BugCheck 50, {fffff8802c358550, 1, fffff80003763836, 2}
I can't do much analysis as its a minidump and the Page Table Entries aren't saved most of the time.

Code:
2: kd> !pte fffff8802c358550
                                           VA fffff8802c358550
PXE at FFFFF6FB7DBEDF88    PPE at FFFFF6FB7DBF1000    PDE at FFFFF6FB7E200B08    PTE at FFFFF6FC40161AC0
Unable to get PXE FFFFF6FB7DBEDF88
Its an Instruction Pointer misalignment which is caused by either drivers or RAM, in this case most likely RAM.

Code:
X64_IP_MISALIGNED

Download it here:

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Which one should I download?

You have two options to choose from, you can either download the ISO version then burn it do a CD and boot it from there.
The other option is downloading the auto installer for USB sticks, you then boot from that USB stick.
Be warned though, it will format your USB then install the files needed to make it bootable so any files left over will be wiped off.

So how does it work?

It works by writing a series of test patterns to most memory addresses over 9 tests, it then reads the data back to compare it for errors.

The default pass does 9 different tests varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth pass is optional from the menu which writes all the memory in zeroes then sleeps for 90 minutes and compares it to see if any address have changed, this takes 3 hours per pass each time.

My memtest86 isn't booting! What should I do?

This can be caused by a number of different reasons, common ones include your BIOS not setting using the correct settings, you might want to change your boot priority order.
Other causes include your motherboard not supporting bootable USB sticks in which case you'll need to use a CD (or floppy drive).

Any other issues you might want to look here:

Download the latest version, it depends how you're going to boot it, either USB or CD.
If USB then download the USB auto installer or CD download the ISO.

When I attempt to download, Malaware bytes goes nuts. I quarantined 6 or 7 things. Is there anything else we can try?

You should be able to stop it doing that, Memtest86+ is the best memory testing software, no other comes close.

What is scanning right now has a windows logo and the words "System Speedup" aside of it. It is scanning registry. Is this what I was supposed to d/l? I'm sorry.

I'm not following what you're saying...
System Speedup has nothing to do with Memtest86, it's bloatware, remove it.

You haven't provided the msinfo32 file which should be included with the dm log collector so I can't check what you have installed.

I used the dm log collector again. I checked the zip. I did see a system information file for msinfo32 in this new zip.

I'm afraid that if you want me to use that memo thingy I'll need a direct link to the download page. I'm downloading everything but that ... somehow.

Click the link Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip).
There isn't anything bundled with that ISO so what did you download with sneakware in it?

Open with Windows Explorer, extract file, rightclick the ISO to burn to CD, boot CD to run at least 7 passes as well as the other tests to isolate problem
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
