    BSOD while normally using the computer


    Hi,

    About 2 - 3 weeks ago, I've got a lot of bluescreens, and with the help of a member here, I've solved it by removing my USB wireless adapter and connecting to my router by using an Ethernet cable, this reduced the amount of them, I think that I only got one after that.
    In the last sunday, my hard drive broke and bought a new one in monday, and after formatting it and reinstalling Windows 8, the bluescreens returned and now they're more than ever!!!! And one thing I have noticed, is that two of them appeared when I was copying big files which total size was about 60 GB from a directory to another inside the C: .

    So, I want to request your help, I'm starting to think that this is related to the motherboard or something like that.
    I've attached the files you requested.

    Thanks a lot again!

    Best Regards,

    4 out of 5 BSOD's in your upload were caused by Memory Corruption. Please download: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool (the 5th one from top for USB Installer) and run the memory diagnostic test for at least 6-8 hours unless errors occur before.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for your help. I switched the memory slots and cleaned the contacts, and until now, I haven't got any blue screen.
    Let's hope for the best now!

    Thanks a lot for the support!

    Hi,

    Just to let you know that you were right.
    The blue screens returned, and I run Memtest 86, and after almost 3 hours, it has found lots of errrors (I've attached the output).

    Attachment 44873

    Do you know if I can solve this with software, or do I need to buy a new DDR?

    Thanks a lot,

    Yes, bad RAM memory sometimes is hard to find and take a long time to detect due to different pattern tests, temperature on the stick etc... and often people tend to ignore and think it is good after couple passes. That's why you need to run it from 6-8 hours.
    I am glad at least you found where the culprit is.
    Cheers !!!
