Windows 7: Seemingly random BSODs for the last few weeks/months

Ok, I've got Ubuntu 15.10 running from a stick. The installer also put memtest86 on there. I ran that for a few hours last night - almost 5 full passes with no errors.

Are there any diagnostic or testing tools I should use in Ubuntu that might help identify any problems?

Thanks
Wightpants.

It runs completely from the memory so it doesn't matter what you do.

Well, I ran Memtest overnight again and this time it came up with errors. I took the memory out, had a bit of a hoover round and put the memory back into different slots. Ran Memtest a few more times - no errors, and, more importantly, not a single BSOD now for well over a week.

Thanks for all your help in narrowing down the problem, axe0.

Problem solved.

Hi, I've been experiencing BSODs for a couple of months, but they seem to be getting more frequent recently. It's mostly when I'm running several programs (but not games), but other than that I haven't noticed anything particular. Sorry not to be more specific - I'd be really grateful for any...

Seemingly random BSODs
For a while I've been having some seemingly random BSODs with my new Win7 Hope Premium install. I did have a severe problem with them a while ago but a reformat seemed to help. Unfortunately BSODs seem to have been returned albeit not as bad as with my previous installation (I guess it is a driver...

Been having seemingly random BSODs
My month old desktop has been either freezing/locking up forcing me to do a hard reboot, or just restarting completely on its own since I got it. Only getting the BSODs since I changed the system to not restart automatically. Before that it was just a poof with no explanation. I say random because...
