Windows 7: Frequent BSODs when using Chrome

Frequent BSODs when using Chrome

Hi all,

I have been experiencing BSODs for about a year. I've had enough of them now, so I want to fix them for good.

I seem to experience them mostly when I use Google Chrome at the same time as other applications. It happens a lot when I edit videos in Sony Vegas with Google Chrome in the background. However, it doesn't happen every time I use Google Chrome. A few days ago, it happened whilst I was playing World of Warships.

The only thing I have done to try and fix the problem is checking my drives for errors using the Windows 7 tool. However, the tool found no errors.

Any help would be appreciated.

Probably caused by : hardware
Run MemTest86+ to test the memory,
HDTune, SeaTools and chkdsk to test the hard drives

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.
