Windows 7: BSOD At Random-Varying messages.

BSOD At Random-Varying messages.

So, I've been having fairly consistant black-screenings along with BSODs for a while now and have been unable to pin down the problem. I've recently upgraded my motherboard and memory, which is part of what is vexing me, many of the crashes appear to be caused, at least superficially, by faulty memory. I recently enabled full crash dumps which have largely pointed out ntfs.sys as the culprit, although prior to that I had been suspecting it to be my display drivers, and at this point. I'm simply at a loss.

Hi turpintine,

Welcome to the 7forums.

As there are multiple 0x1a(memory_management) errors which lead usually to the memory and the built-in memory diagnostics is not good enough, please run MemTest86+




BSOD At Random-Varying messages. Diagnostic Test BSOD At Random-Varying messages.
 RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

I'll give it a try, however the ram is brand new and this issue is older than the memory itself. will report back.

That could mean your motherboard is faulty with the slots.

That's what I was thinking some time ago, but the board is, erroneously, also brand new. That said, memtest came up with a couple errors, figured I'd get a quick snapshot and attach it.

Please test your ram a few more times in different slots, to find out if the mobo or modules are the problem

How would I go about determining if the mobo or the ram is faulty? Both are brand new, albeit the ram were used with an old motherboard which I am positive was faulty. Is it possible the old motherboard damaged the ram?

Your mainboard supports DIMM and according to your specs you have SIMM.
If I am correct, that is the problem.

Alright, I'll try DIMM memory and see if that fixes it.

Upon closer googling of the components I've got, I do in fact not have SIMM memory, the sticks I own are DIMM, that said they did still error and I've seen a few reviews that allude to this being common with these particular sticks.
Edit:To clarify...at least one person repeteadly received sticks that errored right out of the box, 've got new sticks on the way plus i'll try to RMA the ones that aren't working.
