so now I'm having more trouble getting ram to stay in than out. I am going to test 1 stick tonight overnight and I will post my findings in the morning. If not this one then the other it seems so I'll keep updating.

So I ran Memtest86 overnight on one 2-gig stick of RAM. Came out with
20 Pass
0 ECC ERR
0 Errors
Does this mean at least this memory stick is ruled out as the problem?

It means that memory stick and that motherboard slot is ruled out.

So I ran Memtest86 on my other stick of RAM in the same MOBO slot as the first one. This is what I got.

Pass 10
Errors 5
ECC ERR 0

Error Confidence Value 122
Lowest Error Address 00000040050 - 0.0MB
Highest Error Address 000df1abed4 - 359.6MB
Bits in Error Mask: df9effe(b or 6) can't read my handwriting
Bits in Error - Total: 26 Min: 1 Max: 21 avg:11
Max Contiguous Errors: 1
Errors Per Memory Slot: 0:4

All 5 errors occurred in test 8.
Does this mean that stick of RAM is the source of the Memory Corruption/Blue Screens and needs to be RMA'd?

Could be heat causing the issue. Use Speedfan and post your temps after heavy usage.

You want me to post temps with just that 2-gig stick, the one that had no errors or with all four in the configuration I've had for months? Thanks for the swift feedback BTW
EDIT to ask if I'm using speedfan to check RAM temps, all I see is GPU, System, CPU, AUX, CORE 0 and CORE 1?

With the No-Error RAM stick after playing an hour of BFBC2:
GPU 47c
System 37c
CPU 32c
Aux 30c
Core 0: 39c
Core 1: 39c

Hope that's what you're looking for.

Hi everyone, I'm on a self built PC which is running fine, but every few days it crashes with a BSOD. Although there are 2-3 different causes, I believe I have fixed one (dxgkrnl.sys) by updating DirectX. The one I can't find a solution for online is the ntoskrnl.exe crash. One crash is a return...
