Windows 7: BSOD playing Civ 5, and downloading a game

Thanks guys. I just got another BSOD a few minutes ago, lol. I suppose I will revert back to my previous CPU and shop around for a new motherboard that will work with the new CPU. Though I will have to buy another OS if it comes to that

Here is the BSOD report from last night. I also uploaded a photo of the memtest I ran for almost 2 hours with my previous CPU, and got 2 errors. If it's a RAM error, should I just buy some new RAM? I also read on other forums removing some sticks of RAM could determine which one is bad. Does unseating the RAM and moving them fix the issue, or is it once a RAM stick goes bad, there's no saving it?

I think all this trouble started when I updated my BIOS to support the newer CPU.

In your previous post I didn't notice the 2 errors.

Yes, test each stick in each slot separated from the other stick(s) to find what exactly is giving the errors.

What's the general procedure for testing individual sticks? Can I stop after it produces 1 error, or let it do more passes? I'm testing a stick right now and I already have 6 errors in 1 pass after 34 minutes.

The tutorial explains that completely.

Ahh, alright.

Also, I just noticed this after moving the stick. I'm assuming this is not a good thing... I don't know how long it's been like that. Anyway, I'll need to set some major time aside if I'm going to do 8 passes. Thanks again.

That isn't good, the stick is damaged, keep going with the tests without that stick.

So that damaged RAM that I tested which gave me 6 errors in 30 minutes seems to be the culprit. I didn't know it was even damaged until after I completed a test. I took it out, and tested it's pair, which produced no errors.

I went on a hunch and reinstalled my FX 8350, and left in the other pair of RAM that had no physical damage, and ran memtest while I was away at work. Came back 7 hours later and no errors. I'd run each stick if it had given me an error, but for now, I think I would just be happy with this.

Thanks again Boris and Axe0. I'll post again in this thread there's another issue.
