BSOD says Device Driver Attempting to Corrupt the system Diagnostic Test BSOD says Device Driver Attempting to Corrupt the system
 RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete 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.


Make a photo of the result and post it.

Addition:
If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

ok, this Memtest stuff is like asking me to fly a space ship. Can't I just reinstall windows and start fresh?

After a lot of frustration, I think I have the Test CD burned. We shall see.

If my suspicion is right (hardware issue), reinstalling Windows won't help anything and may even render your pc unable to boot.

Thank you. Memtest ran overnight and only did two passes in that amount of time. No errors found. Is it possible to accelerate this process, for example, by testing one Ram stick at a time?

Yes, you can test one stick at a time.

This is not completely clear. Will testing one stick at a time result in FASTER checking?

It will take less time for the test on a single stick, but overall the time it takes may not be different.

Sorry I was not clear. I was asking how to SHORTEN THE OVERALL TIME BECAUSE OVERNIGHT ONLY DID TWO PASSES NOT EIGHT.

Sorry I did not say clearly shorten the OVERALL TIME

You were perfectly clear, you want to perform the test as fast as possible. That's sort of possible by testing 1 stick at a time.

I believe shorten isn't the right word, because if you would want to shorten a test you essentially want to skip a part of the test which is not something you'd want.
