    BSOD randomly, but not when in games


    Hello
    I get random BSoDs. Usually I get them when surfing the web, but not when playing games. For example yesterday i had lots of opened tabs in google chrome when i received the message on each page "Google Crash" (or something like that), then i got one for downloading a file via yahoo messenger but i never get BSoD when i'm downloading huge files via torrent. I also tried to WinDbg (for 3 times) and i got the bsod. The errors were random, i can't remember them.
    This things make me think that the problem might apear because of the SSD since what i download via messenger/chrome, i download directly to my SSD (on which the OS is on). I also tried to install WinDbg on my ssd. The large files that I'm downloading, i'm downloading them to my HDD and also my games are installed on my HDD.

    Still i ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and i got an error (only once). Is it the SSD, the memory, the mobo ? Please help me and sorry for the bad English.

    Later edit: Now I was watching a movie (the movie is on my hdd) and the movie suddenly started to look like it was badly encoded and google chrome was not opening. I rebooted my PC and it was not booting - 3 long beeps and a pause, then again 3 long beeps and a pause and so on until i restarted the machine from the reset button. This could be a ram issue since there were 3 long beeps on a UEFI Bios (AsRock 970 Extreme3 mobo).

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

    Also I am sorry for the delay in responding back. The problem was generated randomly by a stick of RAM. I had to run memtest for 8 hours.
