Windows 7: Random BSOD on Windows 7 Beta

Hmz...so you seriously think my RAM is broken, but because the memtest86+ run was too short, it reported that the RAM was ok?

What is the best way to be sure that my RAM is broken? Run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool for days and days or something? I need to know how to 'proof' it to the shop where I bought them that I need new RAM-sticks

A minidump doesn't offer certainty - it offers vague suggestions

Personally, I would not bother trying to fix that install of Windows. The source is (now) known to be dubious, which means the very worst thing that can happen to you is that you somehow manage to mitigate the issue and continue using it, only to later discover somebody's been pwning your online banking through a backdoor left in that OS image.

If I was for some reason being forced to persist with the troubleshooting, I'd be tempted to run the Windows memory diagnostic for a couple of days if necessary.

Well...since it's a desktop PC at my home place with no "important" function like a workstation or something, I am not forced to persist at all.

But let me clear: to be sure that one of my RAM-sticks is broken, it's recommended to check the sticks one by one with Windows Memory Diagnostic?
And when I get new sticks, It's recommended to install a fresh, GOOD, Windows 7 install to prevent myself from being hacked or anything...

Please give some advise, because I really don't know what is best to do in this case..

Yes, you don't want to be installing torrented operating system images, for multiple reasons.

The first is legality, although I'm personally unclear on whether it's OK to torrent your OS image and then use a valid license key. This forum does not support or condone any form of illegality, so I'm hoping somebody with more knowledge will be able to explain the situation to both of us.

The second is that the torrented image can - and frequently is - riddled with malware.

Therefore, my suggestion to you would be to obtain a copy of Win7 from Microsoft, and to restart from scratch. Should the same errors persist, you may wish to run the memory diagnostic for a couple of days (doing it one-stick-at-a-time is not necessary).
