Windows 7: Windows 7 BSOD issues

On any note, here are the minidumps from my last 3 bsod's. I still need to update intel storage, and replace my wlan card, but i think from the results of the memtest86, at least 1 of the 3 ram modules may be responsible for most of the problems.

The error in Memtest indicates that you have a RAM problem. You can't ignore a RAM problem. Remove the stick you have identified as bad and see how your computer runs. I would remove all but one stick and test that stick with Memtest running at least 12 passes (since that it how may you ran previously). If that stick passes, test the next stick in the same slot. Repeat until you have tested each stick in that one slot. Next, take a known good stick and test each slot. This will let you know if you have a bad slot.

You forgot to upload the latest dumps.

Len, I am not a hardware expert. I will ask the hardware Gurus to look at this thread. I suggest you wait for them to post before you change voltages.

Raising the voltage will at best make the problems worse.
At the worst it can take out the CPU.

Raising voltage on a bad stick of RAM will speed up the process of failure and the extra voltage can ruin the CPU as this happens.

Not a good idea with bad RAM. Risky with good RAM.

Alright, i'll get a second opinion on this as well, although reading a bit more this may be a possible reason for the bsods. The ram is rated at 1.65v and my motherboard by default is undervolting it to 1.5v

Thank you, Mike.

Len, yes, the wrong voltage can cause BSOD's. Is your RAM on your motherboard's compatible list? You need to sure of what your are doing before you raise voltages. There are a lot of ramifications to doing so.

1.5v is under volting at idle. If your Bios is set for "Auto" Ram voltage settings as soon as you load it RAM voltage goes up.

As Carl suggested test each stick to find the bad one.

If you do turn up the voltage go to 1.55v as first step and try it. Then up to say 1.58v and try it out.
Don't jump up to 1.65v all at one time.

Yes, i have went to the Corsair website and the motherboard is on the compatibility list.

On a note, one stick, 30 passes with no error which suggests the 1-2 bad ram modules idea
