Random BSODs

Hello.
I've been getting seemingly random BSODs over the past few months and I have no idea how to fix them.

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ian, Welcome to 7F.

Your dumps are pointing towards a problem with your RAM. Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM.

Note   Note
Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM and you can stop the test.


Report back with the results and we'll go from there.

Driver Verifier will stress your drivers and cause BSODs if any fail. Follow this tutorial to enable/disable it. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Enable Driver Verifier but only enable these options:
Standard settings and IRP logging step 3.
Don't enable Force Pending I/O Requests

warning   Warning
Make a System Restore point before enabling Driver Verifier.

Note   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while DV is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.


Upload any new logs containing subsequent BSOD dumps.

I've ran driver verifier for few days and I wasn't able to get any blue screens. I believe my samson go mic was the problem as I haven't gotten a blue screen since i swapped it out right before I turned on driver verifier.

I greatly appreciate your help Boozad and I believe my issue has been solved.
