    Yes, and I downloaded what the scan told me to. The installer is giving me that warning because it wants me to get the drivers from Asus, which are fairly old.

    I have not yet had a chance to do much of the instructions you posted before, and I did not update the video card drivers yet, because I'm awaiting instruction on which one I should download, but I did get another BSOD while playing Prison Architect. I've attached it.

    Please check your memory using MemTest. If you have more than one stick of RAM check them one by one. RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Hi softwaremaniac,

    I downloaded and installed memtest86+ onto a USB drive, and it won't boot. I have a Windows 8.1 computer on UEFI. I have safeboot off, and I swapped the boot order as well as trying to run it manually from the boot menu. Both just go straight to Windows. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Have you tried installing it onto a disk instead of a USB?

    This laptop has no cd drive, so after trying a number of things, I gave up and downloaded Memtest Free Edition from Passmark, which has explicit UEFI support, and that worked. I ran it for 4 passes and there were no errors.

    Any word on which Intel Graphics Driver I should install: Asus provided or Intel provided?

    4 Passes is not enough. Please run for a minimum of 8 passes, or until you get an error.

    And download Intel provided.

    OK, well this time it had 8 errors in pass 2. What are the chances of false positives? How come the computer never blue screened while running Windows 8?

    Chances of a false positive are slim to none. And for the second question I am not sure.

    What I suggest to figure out which it is, whether its the ram or the motherboard, move around the ram and narrow down the results.

    This is a laptop with 1 stick of ram, and the ram is onboard.
