No it was just MemTest86, I was not aware there was a difference, should I run +?

Sorry, I'm completely out of ideas as to how we could get the .dmp files to be generated. I'll have to spend some time researching this a bit more.

I appreciate that, I went through all the options I could think of myself before turning here. Do BSODs even help you without dumps? I am curious if I should continue posting them

Here are several more errors, as I said I am not sure how much they help


When you said it was a driver error Golden did you believe specifically it was the hard drive? I was contemplating getting an SSD and I am curious if you believe that installing Windows onto an SSD might alleviate my problems. If so I might prioritize getting one.

No, I have no evidence that it was the HDD. In the absence of any other suggestions (and I'm still coming up empty) I was going to suggest doing a clean install (either to the existing HDD or a newer SSD) if you choose.

Before you take that step, lets check the HDD - something we haven't yet tried right?

Run the SHORT test of the Windows version of SeaTools please:

I believe I have already done all these tests but I did the SMART check, the drive self test, and the short generic test and my hard drive passed them all, I don't have any large enough backup media to do a flatten and reinstall on my current hard drive so that solution will have to wait until I can get a chance to get an SSD
