Windows 7: Random, constant and regular BSOD (1 Year)

24 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

Thankx but before I can do anything I need to know the cause of it, whether is the ram or mobo, I hope is the ram. So I can replace or send a specific part. my mobo and the ram are about the same price so I really need to make sure it's the ram or the ombo that is causing the problem before making a move, Maybe my latest DMP file holds more info?

Try this tutorial: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

That should help you out.

It won't. It's just a symptom of an underlying problem.

Unfortunately it will not help pinpoint the difference between a faulty mobo or module.

Using some of the trouble shooting methodolgy in the Memtest link provided above may help narrow down the culprit quicker.


I have tested each of my ram on every slots before but both seem to give me BSOD eventually but one of the slot doesn't seem to work anymore even on any one of my ram, so it seems the problem is leaning more towards my mobo
When you say one of the slots 'doesn't work anymore' - do you mean that the machine fails to POST with a single module in that slot, or that with both sticks installed, only one module (2GB) is detected?

If it's the former, most motherboards have certain dimm slots which you cannot boot from, hence the 'not POSTing or not working'

If it's the latter, then it does sound like you have a dead dimm slot and thus, a faulty motherboard.

Without knowing your actual specs, it is hard to recommend which settings to use just in a case this is merely a incorrect settings issue.

I wouldn't recommend overvolting the RAM for an extended period of time either - just in case there is actually nothing wrong with your ram. By overvolting, you may end having to replace both the mobo and RAM

thankx smarteyeball, yes when I say it doesn't work anymore it means my PC won't even boot and the monitor won't get any signal from my PC, I have 4 ram slots, today I have tested each and every one of them with both rams. my 1st and third ram slots are confirm dead but before the second and forth slots were working, but after placing my rams at those working slots, my PC din't boot up and I found out that the second slot was also dead leaving me with only one ram slot left but don't worry since now it is confirmed is my mobo's fault I can buy a new mobo while I send this one back. I jsut hope my ram doesn't have problem with all the previous testing of my PC. Thankx agn
