Windows 7: Occasional BSOD

I just shut it off after a few hours. I am going to try to run Memtest on each one of sticks tonight. Hopefully I can find the bad memory and get it replaced.

Valid approach.

Well, it turns out I have one bad memory.

RAM #1 in slot 1 = No Errors
RAM #2 in slot 1 = Over 1,000 Errors
RAM #3 in slot 1 = No Errors
RAM #4 in slot 1 = No Errors

Put RAM #2 & #3 in its original packaging...

RAM #1 & RAM #4 in slots 1&2 = No Errors
RAM #1 & RAM #4 in slots 3&4 = No Errors

So I think it's safe to say that it was the RAM. Filing an RMA now.

Thank you guys for helping figure it out.

By the way, is the debugger tool something I can easily get? I don't think I can understand in full what it tells me but Google's one of my best friends.

Also, thank you for pointing out Memtest. I didn't know about it but looks like I'll be running it every time I get new RAM.

I went to the link you provided for the debugger, saw all that code in blue and just closed the browser window. Intimidating...

Well, this thread was my first post in this forum. Came to this place after doing my first Windows 7 install. Thanks to you guys, I RMA'd the bad ram, received the replacement last week and haven't had a blue screen error yet. Thank you again.
