Windows 7: Windows 7 Keeps crashing (blue screen) after using a lot of memory

Windows 7 Keeps crashing (blue screen) after using a lot of memory

Hi Everyone,

I am sure something similar to this has happened before. Basically, I have 8GB ram, I leave a lot of sites open on chrome and eventually when ram usage reaches around 5-7GB, I get the page fault blue screen come up. It's really frustrating. I have ram memtest and it seems to all be fine there. I don't know what else it could be. Ive considered getting a better computer with 16gb ram, but it makes no sense for this to happen considering ive got swap space and an Intel SSD drive (doubt its the drive considering it happened with the old SSD too which was OCZ).

Any ideas on where to start with diagnosing the problem? I have attached images of the errors that have come up below. Thanks in advance guys!!

Also My specs are below:


Computer Manufacturer: Custom Build
OS: Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q SE2
Memory: Kingston PC2-6400 4x2GB 9905316-132.A01LF
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT610 A1 1024MB
Hard Drives: Intel SSD 120GB 530 Series

Test the memory with memtest. To me it sounds like a memory fault. Once you use up TO a Certain amount of memory the fault shows up.

Unfortunately memtest passed when i ran it through like 5-6 cycles. so im thinking its not the memory

Just to make sure.....it must be MemTest86+......minimum of 8 passes

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

You could also try removing 1 or 2 sticks of RAM at a time and seeing if you still get a BSOD.

yeah i guess I have to go through the elimination method. i cant be bothered running memtest because it takes too long and I need the comp. I have 4x2gb mem sticks and all are kingston. they are in pairs. both pairs are not exactly identical (model is different) but they share same specs/clock cycles etc. if anything it could be faulty. so ill test with one pair (increased my swap to accomodate a large amount of memory use). then test the other pair. and see what happens. thank god i got ssd to keep the swap fast.

but if its not the ram, could it be something else? is there a way to look up the system logs and see what caused it?

You'll never get to the bottom of the issue unless you run MemTest86+ as recommended. There no alternative tests.

Dont be tempted to skip the test.....there is no substitute.
