Windows 7: help interpreting memory check

help interpreting memory check

just replaced power supply after having some boot problems. tried swapping my memory and it appeared one was bad so removed this one and got the pc to boot up with only one stick. then i used the sys recovery disk to run windows memory diagnostics. i dont know how to find the log from this. possibly someone can look at my bsod upload and tell me if the remaining stick is okay, or what else may be a problem. thanks.

Hello bam mate run this for the memtest the Windows feature is basic at best
This is pre written if it looks rather lengthy but it saves me typing out what to do over and over.
Just one thing 8 passes - any less - forget it

The memtest you will need to make a bootable disk / stick and set the BIOS to boot from the optical or USBand it will take a fair time to run- some leave it overnight.
This is the current version* 404 Not Found use this as any other test is useless - the Windows one sadly is not worth even a thought about.
So for example if you have say 4 slots and 2 sticks and get errors you need to test #1 stick in #1 slot if no errors then move on to test #2 stick in #1 slot. That would mean to me the problem lies within a slot because no errors with either stick have thrown errors.

Then you move on to #1 stick in slot#2 no errors then stick #2in slot#2 no errors - repeat the process in slots #3 and then #4 with both sticks until the errors come up. Running each for 8 passes as you can imagine is very tedious and will test your patience.

But it has to be done simply because if the errors do not come with either stick in slot #1 then as I said it points to a faulty slot.

Having said that this does not happen very often it is usually the sticks that are at fault.
But one thing is very important you must let the test run for at least 8 passes any less and the findings are no good. Now if errors come up straight away then you can stop it - see my pics. With more than two sticks the process is even longer as one may realize.
It is a very lengthy and tedious process but worth it if you have errors.

Please upload a kernel dump (C:\Windows\Memory.dmp) to a 3rd party uploader (onedrive, google drive, dropbox) and post a share link in your next reply

This is a common stack, but doesn't help much

Windows 7 Memory Test: VRAM check?
(I hope it's the right category to post this). Would it be right to assume that Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool tests all memory, not just RAM? During a test, it has reported problems on the 1st run, whereas MemTest 86+ hasn't done so after a day of testing. I've been dealing with memory-related...
