Windows 7: BSOD only noticed it happening while on the internet

I'm doing heavy video editing, will removing 4g of ram hinder that greatly? The two 4g sticks are brand new. The 2 2g sticks are older.

Yes, it will have an effect, but I think your computer will run better, which net effect may not hurt so bad. I've done some heavy video editing with 8 GB before and it did OK. I rendered 300 2 HR movies in about 3 weeks with 8 GB. Of course, CPU matter a lot too.

Stop the test, remove the 2 2GB sticks and run memtest again and see if it runs better. I hope you downloaded memtest directly from the link I gave you. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Great. See if memtest runs any better that way.

That sounds about right. I have another computer with 8 GB of ram, it takes it about 9 hours and 30 minutes to do 8 passes.

OK cool. I also have a new graphics card and wireless card ready to install once this is complete. Or do you think we can do more testing before putting the hardware in?

Something is wrong. I can run 8 GB in about 9.5 hours. It has nothing to do with ram or drivers. Drivers only load when the OS loads. The test runs out of ram, no hard drive or drivers involved.

1ST thin is create a restore point. It may be your only way back. You do have your installation DVD, right? You may need that or the repair CD. But be sure you create a restore point first (link at the bottom). then

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

What is Driver Verifier:
It puts stress on the drivers, and therefore it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.


How we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit slow and sluggish.
warning   Warning

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore point.

If there are no Restore points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


Tip   Tip




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