Windows 7: BSOD after upgrading from 4GB to 8GB

BSOD after upgrading from 4GB to 8GB

Hi,

I'm new to this forum but need some help debugging a BSOD on:

Lenovo Y550P:
Windows 7 Home premium x64 (tried clean win7 install and the one that came with lenovo)
i7 Q720
NVidia GeForce GT 240M
Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN wireless adapter

When I had it with 4GB of ram, everything was fine (very stable for weeks). I upgraded to 8GB and keeps getting BSOD. If I go to 6GB, I last much longer but eventually BSODs. All memories passed 5+ memtest.exe advanced. Doesn't seem to be a memory problem. I seem to have the latest drivers and updates already.

The minidumps vary from 0x1a, 0xa, 0x7e, 0x24. Attached is one of each in a zip file. Greatly appreciate your help. I'm hoping this is just some driver issue where I can just disable some device I don't need. Thx!

Hi and welcome to SF.

First of all, download Speccy to update / complete all system spec at your profile here:
Speccy - Download
If system runs fine with 4Gb, almost fine with 6Gb, faces BSODs with 8Gb, and all RAM modules passes... My suspicions fall on the voltage applied to the ram memory... but let's wait 'till someone debugs the minidump, right?!
By now, update your system specs!

Let us know the results.
