    BSOD when gaming (few different errors)


    This is basically a fresh install. I only really installed steam along with the drivers for my motherboard and gpu. It originally did it while on steam only but has since done it other places. Last night was particularly bad, as it would BSOD and then sit on a black screen while trying to load up. Turning it off and on eventually started it back up. Then it did a weird thing where it would keep rebooting itself. Eventually I shut it down for the night.

    specs incase these are needed

    Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-CoreGigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H Micro ATX LGA1150
    Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
    Crucial M500 240GB 2.5" SSD
    Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Dual-X

    Sorry for thedelay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis,so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

    All your dumpfiles blames Probably caused by : memory_corruption
    I advice you to check your memory with Memtest 86.
    Tutorial Memtest86+ and download

    You have Team Vulcan 1600 mhz memory, but it seems they are only running at 1333 mhz.
    Please also check in your bios for the right settings of this memory modules.

    Not a problem I understand. The issue most likely has been resolved. Memtest pretty much confirmed it was bad ram. One had alot of errors(100k plus), while the other one had a few(3 errors). But I didn't let either test finish.

    Soon as I took the real bad memory stick out and played something on a steam it ran flawless. Played for over an hour and no bsod.

    I was trying to figure that out though. Since I did see they were only running at 1333mhz. But my motherboard had the option to change it greyed out. Thought they may have been running at 1600mhz by default. I'll have to look that up when I get my new ram.
