Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.


One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.

In reference to an earlier quote in post #1 just what memory test/check did you do?
I ask because the only memtest we recommend is this RAM - Test with Memtest86+

The Windows feature is in my mind worth running and with this test you MUST let it run for at least 8 passes - otherwise you may as well not bother. Having said that if the errors appear before the 8 passes are up then you can stop it and start to figure out which stick is bad. In some cases it can possibly be a bad slot but that is quite uncommon.

I did use memtest86 and let it run for 16 hours. It ran 8 passes I believe and nothing was found.

Ok that's good then I might just add to what axe has suggested with the chkdsk and that is whether it might be a good idea to run it with the /f and /r switches as well.
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

Having said that I would like to get axe's comment about that before you go ahead.

Only the /r switch is necessary, because it includes the /f switch, run the chkdsk command I mentioned earlier: chkdsk c: /r.

If done correctly, the MFT should be corrected
