Windows 10 64 bit

A google search shows that memory (RAM) is a good possibility for the problem.
First step, with the PC powered off, reseat all the memory modules.

If it continues run a memory test and/or remove all but one memory module and try it again. If it still does it, replace that memory module with a different one. If it still does it, there are other problems but at least you have eliminated the memory.

Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

Follow this tut (pay esp. attention to Part 3

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

And if you get more crashes you might want to follow this tut and submit the data to the BSOD squad for further analysis

I play with my RAM arrangement just like according to fireberd post.. I removed two out of four RAMs I own since 2006 and my computer work perfectly well since then.. and when I tried to put those RAM again, it start to produce a beeping sound straight from the mother board.. I guess it's a warning sound that my old RAM got fried!

going to get a new one tomorrow.. thanks for the help!
