BSOD browsing google or playing League of Legends

Hello, I've been having problems with BSOD for a while. Sometimes just watching videos on youtube other times playing league of legends. I'd apreciate your time and any kind of help to solve this problem.
I'm running a custom built desktop with windows 7 Ultimate x64.

This is my first post, so if anything is missing don't hold back. Thank you

(When i say browsing google i mean chrome)

Edit: After replacing my sticks with a newer version of my sticks it went off with bluescreens almost each hour while i was playing League of Legends (new dump files in the attachments).

Hello and welcome LeftWild mate some system specs really are necessary for us to help you System Info - See Your System Specs I know they are posted in the dump files you sent but it means digging through them and it takes an awful lot of time to do that when we can just click on the system specs at the bottom and see.

Now there seems to be some issues with the memory in the dump files so please run memtest for at LEAST 8 PASSES it must be that many because it takes that many to pick up problems. It takes a long time and many leave it running overnight - it depends on how much RAM you have in see pic for what you will see if errors come up.
Download this and make the disk bootable MemTest86 - Offical Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

I apologize for the lack of information, I inserted all the specs on my specs page so you can easily see them.
Since i work at home and i need my computer I must test the memory overnight as you sugested. As soon as i get the results I will update the thread. Just one small question: If it is indeed the memory giving errors is there a way to fix it or will I need to replace them?

That's good LeftWild I didn't mean to sound pedantic if I did come across that way it is just that we get so many new members post here and yet there is invariably no specs and it really gets a bit tedious as you can imagine having to constantly ask for them.

Now to answer your query well no there is no way to fix memory that has gone bad they are dedicated IC chips on the stick as you will have seen and to find which ones are responsible would take a miracle or a darn fluke to find and if one did to replace it with something compatible - if you could find that would take another miracle to unsolder the old one and insert the new so in a nutshell - impossible. Sorry the long explanation but many think that these things are repairable but in a world of throw away manufacture it is a fact of life.

Now if the memory is a matched pair or whatever then replacing the bad stick needs to be done in a manner that usually one tries to get the same brand and the same specs preferably the same model stick.
Now you probably know what you have got in the machine and if you cannot find the exact replacement then use my little ditty (see below) to find the next best and nearest to same specs as the good one is - if it is only one stick.
I say that because if you test with say two sticks and have errors then you will need to then run memtest again using one stick at a time to find the culprit for example
Stick 1 in slot one stick 2 in slot two if the sticks on their own do not error then it could be the slots (unusual) It is a tedious and very time consuming thing to do but the only way you will track down the faulty stick - if there are errors it might come up ok. I am just looking at the worst case scenario.

Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example.
You need only do Other Components see pic
Anyway I have given you enough for the time being let us know what comes up with the memtest.


Nice build by the way

I understand why you asked, and as I am the one asking for help I will answer any kind of question you present. I searched when you told me about memtest and i will test both RAM sticks and motherboard slots to be sure what's in fault.

If the RAM stick or the mobo is at fault, do you think I can have it replaced by the seller? I built the desktop no longer than a year, but I'm not sure if this kind of problem is covered by the 2 years warranty (since i did not overclocked the equipment and every piece is from the same store, I don't think that they can claim bad use)

Thank you i spent lot of time researching, too bad everything is expensive here in portugal, I could've built better with the same money in U.S.A

Yes mate I know we pay more than they do in the US for gear. But if the equipment is reasonably new yes go ahead and warranty it after all you paid good money for it. However having said that the memtest might be ok it is just an elimination process as we work through the problem.

Plus I am only saying test the memory because those dump files sort of head in that direction we might get lucky as RAM is usually stable and so are boards unless you clock the crap out of them.

So test with both sticks in first if no errors then ok but if there is that s when you will need to separate them to test.
But please keep us updated.

Last night I did the tests I'll try to create an organized way to show what happened:



With these tests I see that my stick 1 is having problems which may be causing the BSODs, is that right?

(sorry about the table quality, it was quickly coded into html so no big details on it )

Ok sorry late reply mate the site has been down for maintenance and I have had to sleep during the day being on night duty.
So I can take it you got screens that look like in my pics I sent? If so that stick is bad and will need replacing.
Now from the info you posted stick 1 has errors in slots 1 & 2 and stick 2 has no errors so it looks like the culprit is stick 1 and well it has to go.

Sorry only way when you get a new one then just make sure you can get as close to the same specs and preferably brand as the dud one. If stick 1 was a matched one of a pair then the specs for stick 2 will be suffice for you to find a replacement.

So say for example stick 2 is a G-Skill abcd1234 X1 then just get exactly that and if you can't then it will have to be something that is as close to its specs as possible.
The alternative is to get another matched pair which is what I would prefer to do on a performance machine but it depends on your budget of course.

If you want some advise on RAM then visit this site and ask Tradesman on your needs he is very good on advising re RAM although it is a G- Skill related forum. Welcome to the G.SKILL TECH FORUM

By the by I use G-Skill myself where possible as I find it inexpensive and good

As I sent earlier the exact specs for those sticks can be got via HW Info and you can do that if you just leave out the bad stick and run the machine. It will be enough to do that with easily.

Hey but well done you did well

Yes i run Memtest and the while the stick 2 showed 0 errors the stick 1 showed errors as soon as the test started, so I'll take the stick to the store so they can test it and see that it has problems and hopefuly they will replace it with another stick from the same model.
Not sure if they can do that since these sticks were a pack. As soon as i get another stick (or if they deny to replace it) I will run some tests and update the thread. If they indeed deny replacing the stick should i use the bad one or keep going with less 4gb?

No mate do not use the bad one it is dead and needs trashing it will only keep causing problems. The 4GB you have will get you comfortably by until you can find a replacement but personally I would make it my business to get the store to replace it if it is not that old and to be honest I have worked with sticks that are well in excess of 20 years old so no excuse for shoddy goods.

Please keep us informed as you have done really well
