Windows 7: BSOD problem

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Memtest should be done overnight.

Hi, just so you know, 2 weeks ago I upgraded my ram, changing the existing 4gb to 8gb new sticks but since I had the repetitive freeze long before that and after the upgrade it's still happening doesn't look like the ram sticks are to blame

Since it's new, it needs testing. And that is the first thing you need to do.

Also another clue of what's happening: every time the system freezes, my laptops heat sink starts blowing air at a fast speed and remains stuck like that until I restart it, other than that the cooling system on this machine is great, never had a issue with it. Thanks

I have done memtest the other night and when I woke up in the morning after 5 hrs it was at the 4th pass there were no errors, then I left to work and sometime during the morning my idiot brother unplugged my laptop and when I got home I couldn't see the end result as the battery run out
Will try again to run for 8 passes

Do yo have any new dumps to upload? If KK has gleaned all she can from your original logs there's not much else we can do to help without fresh logs to analyse.
