Windows 7: Sudden BSOD, followed by PC unable to boot

Sudden BSOD, followed by PC unable to boot

Hi all,

I'm currently unable to turn my pc on after a sudden BSOD which occurred out of the blue as I was on YouTube. My PC then restarted too fast for me to catch the error message.

The PC now starts, then appears to be running for a few seconds before turning itself off again. It does not even run long enough to get to the Windows 7 boot screen.

I've managed to get it running after several attempts, where I retrieved the crash dump which I hope might be able to help to identify the problem. My apologies and thanks in advance as I'm not good with PCs!

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : tcpip.sys ( tcpip!ProcessAleForTcpFastPath+1af )

Followup: MachineOwner
The error message is mixed. I would start by thoroughly checking your RAM.

Run a minimum of 8 passes, preferably overnight, or until errors occur using MemTest86+.

Use this tutorial to help you use MemTest86+:

Hey all, thanks for the responses! I've figured out the problem was caused by a faulty stick of RAM. Seems to be running fine now.
