Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

07 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Ran SFC. Did not find any integrity violations. Starting to update to Service Pack 1.

Edit: So, to keep you up to date. I wanted to try to install all the important updates from Windows Update. But my laptop keeps crashing every 10-20 updates so no chance of installing them. I ran CHKDSK to check the hard disk. The first time i let the one which usually starts automatically after crashes (it found a few errors and fixed them, and 0 bad sectors). After that i scheduled a chkdsk /f. It found no more errors. Now i'm trying to see if i use only one slide of RAM (i have 2 of 2GB) if the problem persists. I tried each of them on one of the 2 slots i have and laptop still crashed. When i put the second RAM in the first slot I tried, the laptop didn't even start. Now i'm on the second slot and will stress the laptop after this with a few games and see the results. If the problem persists on both slots, i will try memtest and after that i'll use different software to scan my harddisk for more errors.

Edit2: So after running memtest for 1 stick in slot 1/2, i let i run for 11 passes and 0 errors. I tried the second stick in the same slot, after 10 passes 0 errors. So given that both sticks are good, wanted to try a memtest with both of my sticks. After starting memtest, it froze very fast. Tried it 2-3 times, still froze each time. I decided to use only 1 stick again in the second slot. Laptop didn't even start. Kept crashing in 1-2 seconds with the screen staying black. I tried the second stick in the second slot, I could start memtest but again it froze soon, and i couldn't start my laptop again. I moved the stick in slot 1, memtest working fine again. 1 full pass and everything is ok. Could the slot itself be damaged? In this case what could/should I do?
