Windows 7: BSOD on new computer ?bad RAM

BSOD on new computer ?bad RAM

I have a new gaming desktop PC and have been having increasing number of BSOD's. I have followed the excellent advice in this forum and think that the RAM may be the culprit.

Unfortunately running DM log collector crashes and sets off a BSOD. I have zip'd up all the mini-dumps and any files DM log collector did have a chance to create.

I have also done a RAM test and have attached a screenshot, it has picked up a couple of errors. I am not sure how to interpret the results.

Thank you. James.

I managed to get DM log collector to work and have attached the full zip. Thanks.

I disabled the Nvidia streamer service and things seem a bit more stable.

You need to identify and replace the defective RAM DiMM.

1. Run a minimum of 8 passes of MemTest86+ on each individual RAM DiMM (inserted into MOBO RAM slot #1) until the culprit is identified.
2. Take a known, tested good RAM DiMM and re-run 8 passes on MOBO slots #2, #3 and #4 to double-check that there isn't a fault with the motherboard too.
