Give me an hour or so, I'm just about to knock off work so I'll take a look when I get home.

The latest dump is a 0x18 which I've peronally never experienced before. It relates to objects and handles and unfortunately with it being a minidump the commands I'm using don't work, a Kernel dump would have to be available. I'm starting to think that at least one driver may be at fault here, but we need to get the MemTest86+ done first to rule that out as an issue, maybe then we can look at running Driver Verifier to weed out any problematic drivers if needed.

Please follow the instructions below to the letter, do not do anything other than the steps outlined below. It's pointless us trying to help if you keep doing things you haven't been asked to do.

 RAM INSTALLATION

Install your two new sticks of RAM in the two blue slots nearest the CPU, leave out the older RAM.

Once the RAM is installed in this configuration run MemTest86+ exactly as outlined below.

 MemTest86+


Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note


Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.


Report back when all of this is completed with the results. If you have any questions before starting memTest86+ running feel free to ask.

Hi Boozad.

I download the MemTest86+ installed it in my USB drive and this this is what I get after formatting my USB which I got prompt to do.

Im a bit confused how the Memtest86 will start working.

It is usually advised to let it run for 6-8 passes.

Hi gokay. I thought because on the screen it said pass complete no errors, that it finished the scan. If it needs more passes then ill do it again.
