Hey guys my computer was blue screening before I even got a chance to type my password into the login screen.. so i re-installed windows and then installed all my drivers again and ran memory diagnostics, i found one of my sticks of DDR3 ram was damaged so i removed it, i thought i'd solved the problem but then i got this BSOD error message this morning (see attached .zip)

If anyone can fix my problem i will be so thankful!

Cheers, Nathan

It's a generic memory bsod, and won't be able to help us. Have you ran another memory diagnostic to confirm the rest of your memory is ok? What diagnostic are you using, btw? The de facto standard is Memtest86+. Windows memory diagnostic isn't very effective.

There may also be the potential case of your motherboard memory slots causing problems (which means the motherboard itself is bad). Testing memory a number of times and seeing errors on any stick in the same slot would mean a bad slot. You should confirm if this is the case by testing each slot with a couple of sticks.

As you go about doing this, also go ahead and provide us a JCGriff Report. To add, turn on Driver Verifier to see if we aren't dealing with just a buggy driver.

I went ahead and merged the two threads. Making multiple threads on same problem isn't exactly the best thing to do, as it'll clutter up the forum and will split your assistance in two and you'll have to manage reading and replying to two threads at once.

I went ahead and perused the crashdumps and they all are very much memory-affiliated problems. We'll just have to go and run Memtest86+ for at least 7 passes to ensure this is the case. However, there is one crashdump that looks rather ugly. I've tried to interpret what was going on and why but my math is getting screwy with me so I can't much figure it out right now. However, it does look very much like a CPU problem. In which case, you'll want to run Prime95 on Torture Test with Large FFTs for about 8-9 hours. If you see any failure in it at all, you can start thinking less about the memory and start blaming the CPU, motherboard or power supply as the cause.
