Windows 7: Frequent BSOD when using Google Chrome

Frequent BSOD when using Google Chrome

Recently my computer has been BSoDing a lot. It has an especially hard time running Google Chrome. The Shockwave flash plugin crashes all the time and pages fail to load. I tried uninstalling Chrome and re-installing it but that did not help. I ran the Windows 7 memory tester but it did not come up with any issues. I am honestly stumped as to what it could be. I have included the DM Log Collector file as the website instructed. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

 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 complete 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.


Make a photo of the result and post it.

Addition:
If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

So, I ran one of the memory sticks through all 4 slots and it had errors immediately in every single one. Then I ran the other stick in all four slots and it passed in every single one. Though I think it was a bad RAM stick. Should I leave that stick out and boot up my computer again?

So, my comptuer has been running fine ever since I booted it up without that bad stick of memory. So I went ahead and ordered another pair. Thanks for the help!
