Windows 7: Random BSOD

As a hunch, I'd completely uninstall Comodo and any antivirus on the machine and see how it goes from there.

Hey,

No, I don't overclock anything.

I went to the computer store today and asked for another 1 gig memory module with chips on BOTH sides. He didn't have them anymore and told me it was an old model. So I bought the 1 side chips one.

Have the pc running in Dual-Channel now and just played some GTA4 for 45 minutes and no crash!

I'll do a memtest tonight just to be sure and post an update here.

Still, if the problem is fixed now, isn't it strange the Blue screen referred to drivers?

Cheers,

Justin

Good call on that Doc. + rep

No, it's not strange. Drivers can get corrupted in memory for many reasons besides a bad driver itself.

If the timings of the new module are mismatched (what Doc pointed out) then it's very common for memory related crashes to point to many different drivers.

Basically, when a driver is calling on the address range/s that are at fault , then any driver can get tripped up and cause a BSOD.

It's like a pot hole in the road.

Many cars can travel over that particular stretch of road for a period of time without hitting it, but every now and then an unlucky car will hit the pothole.

Hi,

I think the problem is fixed, memtest ran for 7 passes with 0 errors. I think it's safe to say the RAM is fixed now, no?

Many thanks for the help guys!
