Windows 7: BSOD 0x51 shortly after startup

18 Apr 2020   #11

Windows 10 Pro

Sounds like RAM failure to me, could you remove 1 module and reseat the other module to see if it makes a difference.

You ran MemTest86+ earlier, but please realize that hardware tests aren't able to test everything on the hardware they're designed to test due to complexity. Memtest, for example, needs to load itself which it does into RAM and temporarily keep track of data to show on your screen which is also done in the memory. It's simply not possible for memory tests to test the RAM 100%.

Sorry, forgot to respond here. I tested both RAM sticks (separately and together) in all sensible configurations, to no luck.
I ended up getting a new machine.
