BlueRobot... Maybe you missed it in my prev post or didnt understand... I am about 95% certain that the problem is fixed... Just going to see how the computer runs over the next 2 days to be sure

Motherboard Slot 1 - All 4 ram sticks ran 7 or more passes clean 0 errors
Motherboard Slot 3 - All 4 ram sticks ran 7 or more passes clean 0 errors
Motherboard Slots 2 & 4 - the first 2 ram sticks I tried had 100's of errors within 2-3 minutes of starting the test...

Results = All 4 of my RAM modules are clean.... Slots 2 and 4 on my motherboard are seriously screwed.

Right now I am back to Running Windows and playing games albeit with less RAM installed since I left the 2 bad slots empty... So far no crashes.

After a week without a crash it happened again!! I have changed nothing since the last post a week ago when I said I thought everything was corrected. And had not had any crashes or issues since that time.

Attached are new SF Diagnostic files if you don't mind glancing over it to see if anything sticks out as a likely culprit.

BugCheck 1000000A, {2b, 2, 1, 82c406d1}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiIdentifyPfn+1e4 )
Usual causes:  Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility
memory_corruption doesn't necessary mean that a RAM module is faulty, it can also point to a object which corrupted the RAM at the time of the crash, for instance a corrupted driver or program. Paging files and the CPU caches can also be causes.

Follow these steps -

Test for any corrupted drivers, by running Driver Verifier for least 24 hours, stop the test if a BSOD occurs before this time frame. Driver Verifier will place stress on the drivers within your system, which will cause corrupted drivers to crash and hopefully be pinpointed.

We have already tested the RAM.

Hi everyone, I recently have noticed more and more BSODs. I had this problem about 6 months ago and was able to track it down to drivers that came from Daemon tools. I cleared all that out and it fixed the issue. I don't think these new BSODs are related but they might be. This seems to be...
