Hi all, so far it did not have BSOD after i recover to factory defaults.

However today i added 2 gb of ram to make it a total of 4gb on my notebook.

I got a Memory Management BSOD.

Should i run Memtest or sorts?

FYI: I was not doing anything, the laptop was on idle when the BSOD happened. Thanks!!

Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and found no problems.

Thereafter there's another BSOD, IRQL_DRIVER_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Any kind hearted souls can help me take a look at the dump file attached in post #11, thanks!

Try running memory diagnostics for a whole day if necessary. The dump from post#11 is mostly indicative of some form of memory unreliability.

Similar again. Memory corruption, very probably caused by physical memory unreliability.

Memory diagnostics results very rarely do "false positives", but they frequently do "false negatives". You may wish to run the diagnostics utility for many hours, or even a full 24h period.

It is extremely difficult to discern (from a dump) which hardware component is at fault, in situations where bad hardware is suspected.

Thanks bro! Will run it and perhaps take out my 2gb ram and see how.

Thanks all for helping.

My case is closed, no more BSODs so far as I have bad ram. Manufacturer changed new ram!
