Windows 7: Bad BSODs on startup

Bad BSODs on startup

Sometimes the BSOD flashes then restarts or has 8 dashes at the top of the screen and then the screen turns all pixelated.

Your .dmp file shows a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. This is likely a memory corruption issue. Download memtest86 and allow it to run overnight...post any errors that it finds...

That's weird. I already installed Razer Diamondback Windows 7 Driver v6.02 (October 15, 2009) and when I try to reinstall it, it says I already have the same version.

mmm well it does state "Release Log:
- This driver set is compatible with windows 7 only (non-WHQL certified)
- Click on “Install” button in the Windows Security prompt" so it's unsigned by microsoft, I wonder if they have left that old file in there ?

maybe try unninstall the driver and use another mouse just for testing purposes to eliminate this as a possible cause ?

I ran memtest86 and it froze on Test 1 with 16 errors for 30 minutes. It said something about 250mb.

Follow the steps in this post (starts with Step 7): Memory Diagnostics
That'll tell you which sticks and slots aren't working properly.

My ram is dual channeled and I can still send for an RMA. Should I request an RMA? It seems that maybe the ram could be the problem. They are brand new on my new custom computer.
