    Hello TrueYears and welcome to Sevenforums!

    You said that you've experience BSODs. For allowing us to debug your errors you've been experiencing, we'll need a little information.

    If you're having trouble enabling minidumps, maybe you'll find this speech handy.

    Your Minidump content should be in the folder at the path C:\Windows\Minidump. If there's no files inside, make sure minidumps are enabled by -
    Go to Start, then Run, then type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
    Click on the Advanced tab
    Click on the Startup and Recovery button
    Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
    Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
    Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
    Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
    Next time you'd experience a BSOD, a dump is supposed to be generated. When it's generated, wrap it up in a zip and upload it.

    Thank you.

    I'm unsure of this one, I'll just do the typical troubleshooting as we're suggesting. If you're having any other dumps, please upload them. It'll give us a wider look and a bigger pattern to do conclusions on.

    BSOD Analyse

    Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.

    Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

    To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.
