My question is the ram good or should i return ( it's still under 30 day gurrantee). Or is the one error due to Ram not being properly installed first time ( not proper contact)
Since you bought it separately i suspect it might be an incompatibility that could be the reason with two RAM gave error and with one it didn't. Anyways you could try running the MemTest86 with two RAM again so we could rule out whether it was seated properly or incompatibility

I have started running Memtest again with two rams this morning. Will see result when i reach home.
Also the laptop came with 2 GB ram only. I replaced it with two 4 GB ram ( came as bundle) both are supposed to work in dual channel. So there might be compatibility issue between motherboard and those two new Ram.

Hello,

Did you ran the MemTest86+ again with 2 RAM's plugged in ? Basically the Dump are blaming Core Windows Files with will be the actual problem so it's could be a Hardware issue. So please post us the result of MemTest so we can try some additional steps if required.

I checked the Model in website and if its T510 Lenovo - Laptop computers - ThinkPad T Series - Technical Specifications it says you can have Memory upto 4 GB DDR 3

Maybe that could be the problem

Code:
ThinkPad T510
       Processor3 (Speed, L2 Cache, FSB)  
       Intel® Core™ i5 (2.4GHz, 3MB L3, 35W)
        Intel® Core™ i5 (2.53GHz, 3MB L3, 35W)
        Intel® Core™ i7 (2.66GHz, 4MB L3, 35W)
      
       
      
      Preloaded Operating System4       Genuine Windows® 7 Ultimate 64
        Genuine Windows® 7 Ultimate 32
        Genuine Windows® 7 Professional 32
        Genuine Windows® 7 Professional 64
        Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64
        Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 32
        Genuine Windows® 7 Home Basic 32
       
      
      Serial ATA Hard Disk Drives 5       160, 250, 320GB/5400rpm
250, 320, 500GB/7200rpm
80, 128, 160GB solid-state drive
       
      
      Memory 6       Up to 4GB of 1333MHz DDR3
According to your System spec

Code:
Is Windows 2008 R2 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64
64 bit
- the original installed OS on the system?
No , I installed myself
- an OEM or full retail version?
Enterprise Edition from MSDN

- What is the age of system (hardware)? New 15 days old
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) 12 days
Can somebody please help me.
Also i have installed new Corsair Ram ( 8 gb ) by myself. Running Memtest on them again.

Thanks Capt! I ran the memory test and got result now.
It's failing on two addresses. I will RMA the ram, and will order new one.

Should i do some other hardware test to make sure everything else is perfect?

Also ,T 510 Support 8 gb PC3 -10600 SDRAM 1333 SoDIMM Memory ( 2Dimm) , they sell the same model with 8 GB ram also.

If your computer only supports 4GB, the 8GB of RAM could cause BSOD. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't. It all depends on the computer. I doubt you would use all 8GB anyways, so try running it with just one stick installed, and see what happens. Update us with the results in 24-36 hours. If that turns out to be the problem, see if you can return the RAM and get 2x2GB sticks (for a total of 4GB) instead.

Thanks Petey7 ! I have Installed Sharepoint 2010 And couple of other memory intensive program. Usually it takes 4 - 5.5 Gb of Ram under normal usage. So i need at least 8 gb ram on laptop.

The laptop T510 supports 8 gb for sure ( that's why i bought it).

OK Great ! As if now it's quiet clear that the RAM is causing the machine to crash so i guess we can ignore the other tests.

Good Luck,
Captain

I would maybe see if I could contact Lenova about that. The link Cpt. provided is directly from Lenovo's main site, and it clearly says a maximum of 4GB. Your link appears to be from IBM's site, but they no longer maker the Thinkpad series. That was bought by Lenovo a few years ago. I would definitely make a phone call or send an email to confirm which is correct.
