    I need help analyzing .dmp files due to frequent BSODS


    I built my first gaming rig in january 2013, and everything went well.

    However about 2 days later i recieved my first BS0Ds, which was very dissapointing.

    I neglected to fix the issues and now all these BSODS are driving me crazy.

    I don't know how to analyze dmp files so any help would be much appreciated.

    Besides the minidumps that windows collects i also have many errors & criticals in my event log but don't know how to resolve any. Any help with those will be appreciated. Thanks to all in advance.

    For people who dont want zip files :

    P.S.. My system is currently running on windows 8 but it was previously running on Win 7 and im still getting the same issues. Screenshot and dmp files attached.

    All BSOD's were caused by various processes but most of them were due to Memory Corruption indicating you might have a bad memory module. Please download Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Burn it to CD/USB, open the case and make sure all RAM are seated securely. Reboot and run the test.



    Let it run for at least 6-8 hours. Good Luck !!!

    Okay so i had enough of the memtest. On the first pass, there was an error in on test and listed it as having 10 errors, then on the second one it started getting more errors faster. Within 5 min i had 60 errors then in about 3 more mins it jumps to 6300 errors. I'm frustrated now and assume the only thing i could do is spend more money and buy new memory.

    There you go. That's the problem. Memory is dirt cheap now , so I guess that's what you have to do. Just make sure to run memtest again with the new RAM, at least over night so if it's bad then you can exchange it.

    Well i tested my original memory again and I'm confused now. So i placed in my first stick of ram and it ran fine in both slots. Then i placed my second stick and as expected i received 10 errors however i tested it in the other slot and fine. No errors.

    First couple of passes do not mean your memory is good. During the test, different patterns are performed. So you need to see a few more passes. However, you can try to swap the sticks where the test passed and let it run to see if it still causes problem. It wouldn't hurt to go in the BIOS and bump the memory voltage up a bit
