Windows 7: Errors in memtest86 ? And lots of it

It would help to know what kind of memory you have (as well as system specs). If you're running performance memory for example, memtest will error if the memory is running below specs.

Example - Say you have Corsair's Dominator modules which runs at 1600MHz at 1.65 volts, well most (almost all) motherboards will only set the memory at a base setting of 1066MHz @1.5 volts - well if you memtest those modules at that setting memtest is going to error!

Not saying you don't have problems with the memory but to rule that issue out, we need to know what kind of memory you're using, along with your system specs.

My two cents.

I'm just running some Kingston CL9 2x2gb ram. Not sure about MHz though.. And my motherboard is an Asus M4A85 TD-EVO everything have been working perfectly til about 3 weeks ago... Very weird, i just suddenly started getting these random BSOD's .

Anyhow, i removed 1 ram stick and i'm installing windows again now(cuz i wiped my harddrive, in hope of it could fix the bsod) everything is going as normal for now, will keep u updated

you might want to know what it is. You can use CPU-Z to find this info......
