BSOD randomly with new computer - Last error code 3b

I have been having issues with BSOD periodically. Updated a USB driver that Devise Manager showed an issue with and that worked for a couple weeks, but blue screen returned. Suspect it could be a bad memory module (have two 4GB DDR3), but don't know how to test. Attaching minidump files. Have memory dump, but very large and did't attach. Any help appreciated.

Welcome to 7F. I'll see if I can help you solve your issues.

Norton is causing issues.

Uninstall Norton and install MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes.

Note   Note
Make sure you uncheck the 'Enable Free Trial' box when installing.



Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

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.


Test the system after replacing Norton and post back the MemTest86+ results. There may be more steps to take.

Thank you Boozad! Memory tested good. Uninstalled Norton 360 and installed MS Security Essentials. Already had Malwarebytes. Will give it a week to see if this ends my BSOD problems. Thanks again.

Can you confirm that MemTest86+ ran for 8 complete passes?

Hi Boozad,

I ran it overnight, but am not familiar enough to know where to see it made 8 passes. I will do another test on the memory tonight to see.

The pass count is highlighted here, that needs to reach 8 to be anywhere near conclusive.
